1 Afternoon, 2 Understand Social Media – Palo Alto, 10/23

When I heard that Chris Heuer, Tom Foremski, and Giovanni Rodriguez wanted to put together a local event to help communications professionals “get” social media, I had to jump in.

Aside from individual blogs, clubs, working groups, and soapboxing, the team has organized an…

The Social Bookmarking Faceoff and its Effects on PR

Hats off to Paul over at StarkedSF for this tip. An interesting story ran over at Read / Write Web discussing the market of social bookmarking as well as comparing several leaders in the space – although it doesn’t seem to include RawSugar and FURL , among others.
