Twitter is real-time “anywhere” messaging and networking

twitter is the message heard around the world – so to speak or so to read. It’s an incredible phenomenon that is spreading faster than online parodies of Snakes on a M F Plane…and in my opinion, it has to be the fastest growing social tool out there right now. It’s everywhere, anywhere messaging so that you can stay in touch with friends, fans, stalkers, and associates whether on the Web, instant messaging, or through text messaging. Each update is…

Thank You for Bringing Attention to the Need for Change

The conversation regarding the need for evolution in PR still rages on (with the SMR aka hrelease at the center of the controversy.) Some bloggers “get it,” others are forcing us to do a better job explaining what we’re actually doing, while some (and the people who read their blogs) completely miss the point. If anything, this conversation demonstrates why the blogosphere (and most importantly, people) will chew-up and spit-out traditional PR and corporate marketing types – without thinking twice….

Enough Already: Getting the Social Media Release All Wrong

After spending a week writing “Social Media Killed the Press Release Star,” which painstakingly explains in great detail the need to improve the content and overall relevance of PR and press releases as well as putting a microscope on why the hell a social media (or let’s just call it “an overhauled”) release WILL exist, people still don’t get it. Good friend, Stowe Boyd wrote an interesting post that I’m afraid is drawing the wrong kind of attention to an…

Social Media Killed the Press Release Star

A New Year is upon us and I think I’ll start off the New Year with a rededication to the Social Media Release (SMR), the Social Media Club, and why the hell all of this will matter to marketing, communications and PR professionals this year. The truth is that somewhere along the way, a few of those who “got it” embraced it as their own, those who are just now learning about it are “not getting” it, and a few…

October 2006 Lunch 2.0

Written by Alison McNeill Friday afternoon I attended the Lunch 2.0 luncheon, but it was actually more of a “linner” since it began at 4 p.m., at oDesk’s headquarters in Menlo Park. The atmosphere was much friendlier than that of some of the other events I’ve attended, as the oDesk staff was very eager to answer questions and give demos. There was pizza and beer, as any good linner should have, as well as a few familiar faces. I also…

del.icio.us Birthday Bash!

Written by Alison McNeill Photo Credit: Scott Beale / Laughing Squid . Last night I attended the del.icio.us birthday bash at the monstrous Yahoo headquarters, and yes, it was quite delicious! This was very different from previous events I have gone to in that it was bigger, more relaxed and there was tons of delicious food! Sorry, I’ll try to use a different adjective for the rest of the article. Joshua Schachter, Photo Credit: Jeremiah Owyang My colleague and I,…

Lunch 2.0 ‘Web Expo’ Blowout at Hitachi Data Systems

Yesterday, I attended the Lunch 2.0 event at Hitachi Data Systems in Santa Clara (Isn’t everything better with “2.0” after it?). Jeremiah Owyang organized and hosted the event and credit also goes out to Mark Jen for starting the Lunch 2.0 event series. Your host, Jeremiah Owyang – Photo credit: Scott Beale / Laughing Squid Similar to STIRR and the SV and SF NewTech Meetups, the concept is really about bringing together the people behind the new “Silicon Valley” economy…
