Tumblr – Tumbling between blogs, twitter and jaiku

How many unfinished posts do you have in your draft folder? Or, better yet, how many ideas do you have that you are hoping to get to one day. Well if you’re anything like me, a post is much more than simply sitting down, typing, linking, adding tags and then clicking the post button. And, this is an example of one such post. Enter tumblelogs. According to Wikipedia, “A tumblelog is a variation of a blog, that favors short-form, mixed-media…

Microsoft PR Sparks a Blogstorm of Support and Outrage

Image Credit: istartedsomething.com I just read over on Techmeme that Microsoft PR may be digging itself deeper into another potential PR fiasco. There is a blogstorm out there with dozens of bloggers, myself included, casting opinions. Many of which I don’t necessarily agree with. I had to find out for myself, so I contacted several of the privileged bloggers who already have the notebook as well as other PR leaders to discuss the topic. Welcome to Crisis Communications 2.0.Microsoft’s intention…

Web Two Oh Chronicles – November SF NewTech Meetup

Organized by Joel Sacks, CNET and Marketing Strategist at BuzzShout, and Myles Weissleder, SF NewTech Meetup celebrated yet another new milestone of over 600 members. The November SF NewTech seemed to come up pretty quickly this time. And, it rained again (October’s event greeted us with rain as well) – let’s hope this isn’t a pattern! As usual Myles kicked things off to what had to be the largest turnout yet. The event attracted the usual faces, with some new…

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,…

Revision3 Launch Party

While I’m here at DEMOfall, I missed the Revision3 launch party. Scott Beale captured the event, and by looking at his pictures, I absolutely wish I could have been in two places at once.

Special guests from Tiki Bar TV , Ask A…

STIRR It Up! Founder’s Mixer 1.6 Raises the Bar

This was STIRR ’s sixth event and there was no doubt that it was the biggest to date. In fact they had to move from Blue Chalk in Palo Alto to The Whisper Lounge in SF in order to accomodate the growth. In discussions with Sean Ness and Joanne Wan, estimates were easily placed at about 225. 225…? Kudos STIRR team! STIRR is an effective mix of “live” social and business networking among a highly qualified crowd of tech innovators,…

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…

Photo credit: Scott Beale Thank you to Scott Beale of Laughing Squid for the TechCrunch7 reference earlier… From Laughing Squid: “Monkey Notions has made an excellent video about the Valleywag / TechCrunch Peace Accord using my photo of the now famous, less-than-enthusiastic handshake between Nick Douglas of Valleywag and Michael Arrington at the TechCrunch 7 Party.” Quoting Brian Solis on Flickr: TechCrunch7 Party $100,000 Open Bar $50,000 Picture of Mike and Nick shaking hands, Priceless… Tags: nick douglas, valleywag, techcrunch,…
