STIRR has set the bar pretty high, and it has earned its place as the reigning champ for monthly tech/Web 2.0 business events. Note, that I will stop using words such as “mixer” and “networking event” because they cast a horrible misconception on what STIRR is really all about.
The secret of STIRR’s success is that its founders, Sanford Barr, Sean Ness, and Dan Arkind carefully screen their invite only (and wait list application) lists in order to fill the room with people that really are start-up founders, VCs, CEOs, serial entrepreneurs, bloggers, reporters, and influencers.
Search leader, and start-up gobbler, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) surpassed the $500 mark for the first time today.
This is a significant milestone which only took a little over two years to achieve – making its initial public offering of $85 per share seem like a bargain today. And, if you think about it, it really has been a meteoric rise for the pair of Stanford University graduate students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, to go from a garage to a market value of about $154 billion.
Welcome to the Bubble
Sung to Guns and Roses “Welcome to the Jungle”
Welcome to the bubble
We’ve got fun and games
We got everything you want,
and we know the names
We are the people that can find whoever you may need
If you got the ruby honey,
We got your VCs
In the bubble, Welcome to the bubble
watch it bring you to your na na na na na na na na knees, knees

The series features some very important interviews with those truly behind the evolution of Social Media.

Chris Heuer, Shel Holtz, and I recorded the latest edition of the New Media Release NMRCast for Shel’s award-winning For Immediate Release (FIR) podcast.

As a function of the Social Media Club, Chris Heuer and I were recently discussing Social Media Press Releases with a reporter at a PR trade magazine when we realized just how many people have yet to even learn about the fundamentals of social media. For example, as we were defining the building blocks of an SMR (social media release), Chris stopped and asked the interviewer if she knew what a “tag” was. That was a great question, it turns out, because the answer was no.
