The Sky is Falling 2.0

Photo Credit: Gary Shaw 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. According to Winer, “In the late 90s, we knew the end would come, and we knew what the end would look like — a stock market crash of the dotcom sector. So, if Web 2.0 is a bubble, and…

Are We Ready for Web 3.0?

www.3.0 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…

Let’s STIRR Things Up A Bit – Web 2.0 Event Soars to New Heights, Part I

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…

Social Media and PR 911 – Stop the presses!

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.

Enterprise 2.0 Continued – Cogenz

Niall Cook, Founder and Chairman of Cogenz Ltd, commented on the last reference to Enterprise 2.0 companies to let me know about what he’s working on over at Cogenz.
