With an open mind and an open heart, we can continue to learn, grow, and in turn, teach those around us to make 2010 a banner year for new media literacy and change.

On PR, Social Media and the Evolution of the Web with Robert Scoble

I recently visited good friend Robert Scoble, his lovely wife Maryam and their family in Half Moon Bay. It was an overdue trip, one without an agenda. It was a fleeting opportunity to catch up, talk a bit about the latest book, and also an excuse to have a fireside chat, literally, on the grounds of the Ritz Carlton (overlooking the 18th green and the Pacific Ocean.)

PBS MediaShift: Social Media Marketing

Mark Glaser (@mediatwit) is the executive editor of PBS MediaShift and also the host of 5Across. MediaShift serves as the guide to the future of the digital media revolution.

Over the years, I’ve followed Glaser’s work closely. His astute observation and poignant sense of distillation and direction help his readers and viewers understand change and evolution to make more informed decisions. Recently, we discussed the landscape, market, opportunity and pitfalls, and psychology associated with sponsored tweets, paid posts, disclosure and the new guidelines proposed by the FTC.
