It’s Friday. Before you pack your bags and head out to the Hamptons for the weekend, check out what is new in the Green Business Blog Carnival this week. Your portfolio might thank you for it! Thanks to our friends at sustainablog and Triple Pundit for coming up with the carnival. Next week, check out the carnival at Green Marketing TV.

Last week, Steve shared his thoughts on online social networking – something he believes “allows for a wider understanding, access and appreciation of what’s happening” in our industry. If you’re an avid online networker (or want to become one), join in the discussion, and let us know what you think. Of course, offline social networking continues to exist in parallel, and maybe it’s the more effective way after all… Meeting in person has a big advantage over meeting virtually – only physical interaction tells you if you really like somebody. While you can easily exchange information on the internet, talking to somebody face-to-face usually leaves a bigger mark (both on you and your counterpart). At the end of the day, we like to share experiences and thoughts – not necessarily in a chat room, but ideally over a cup of coffee.
