Chris Heuer, Shel Holtz, Tom Foremski, and I recorded the latest edition of the New Media Release NMRCast for Shel’s award-winning For Immediate Release (FIR) podcast. Welcome to NMRCast episode #11, a 29-minute podcast recorded live from the San Francisco Bay Area and Kansas City, MO.
We discussed reactions to the social media release concept; announced an upcoming social media release summit; and invited PR pros to post their case studies to the social media release wiki.
Women 2.0 (a division of Entrepreneur27) and Stanford BASES are hosting their next event focused on individuals who went against tradition and took big risks, resulting in careers that they really enjoy. In many cases, these entrepreneurs actually “created” or joined real business based on their passions, allowing them to earn a living doing something they love.
Event: Converting Your Passion into a Real Business
Date: Tuesday, December 5, 2006 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM
Location: Stanford University, Room 420-040 in the Quad (map)
Recently, we attended Web 2point2, an ‘unconference’ driven by participants and based on conversations, not powerpoints.
The people who attended the event are the influentials in the Blogosphere and Web 2.0 movement – the folks in the trenches doing the real work, starting up new companies and sharing their understanding of what they learn. In short, the crowd will be largely made up of peers and contemporaries in the resurgence of the Web.

I lamented over whether or not to write this post, but felt that it was absolutely necessary in order to stop any potential widespread panic after Dave Winer’s post that semi predicts the end of Bubble 2.0.
Living in Silicon Valley has been an intoxicating and suffocating experience all wrapped up into a lavish party with gourmet food and cocktails poured through a block of chiseled ice. Everyday I live, breath, sleep everything two dot oh, and what started as a way of making the web more dynamic and interactive, is now one big pool of punch where programmers, marketers, and startup founders are the new rock stars and everyone wants to jump in to take a dip and take a sip.
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.
It’s not social media if the rest of the PR industry isn’t socializing…
I was a last-minute invite to the Bulldog Reporter Advanced PR Technology in Practice event in San Francisco on Friday to discuss Social Media and successful examples in today’s PR landscape.
I joined Sally Falkow, a fellow Social Media Club member, and Eric Schwartzman, on the “Brave New World of Social Media” panel.
Video Series #3 – Jeremiah Owyang, Chris Heuer, and Chris Carfi.
What started as a special test program for PodTech, has now spawned a life of its own. I’m running this particular series here, in advance of PodTech, because PR2.0 is a forum for exploring the fusion of Social Media and PR as well as the bubbling activity behind the Social Media Release. The series features some very important interviews with those truly behind the evolution of Social Media.
