My Article on Blogger Relations Posted on Forward Moving Today

Blogging has grown to become a great “disruptor” for PR. For those who are unfamiliar with the clout many blogs carry today, it has substantially grown from random musings, personal experiences, and op eds to full blown reporting across every category you could imagine. Some have even become rock stars in their own right, with PR associates tripping over themselves trying to get their attention. Please jump to Forward for the rest of the article.

Rocketboom Tears Down the Wall (Map)

Yesterday on Rocketboom, host Joanne Colan surprised us with her closing statement, or actions rather, by turning around and ripping down the famous wall map that has served as the backdrop faithfully since episode one.

News? Hardly. Fun? Sure.

Deep breath…exhale.

Intel Introduces New Core 2 Duo Processors

Today I had the opportunity to attend Intel’s launch for its new Core 2 Duo processors. It had the “humbled,” yet significant importance, in my opinion, as the launch of the orginal Pentium chip, while still tapping into the power of next gen media.

It was fun, exciting, beautifully decorated, and more importantly, PACKED with everyone that matters in tech influence.

The event celebrated the launch of the company’s new processor that runs faster, but uses a lot less power.

Zero to 60 in 2.5 Seconds

Recently, the fastest, most expensive production car on the market was unveiled in Los Angeles — the 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4. At $1.3 million, it will be available to only the elite (many of whom probably reside in Silicon Valley). Don’t be surprised if you see this bad boy on Sand Hill Rd. or Santana Row.
