Twitter Trends: Airline Hotlist August 2009

As Twitter adoption travels from the left to the right of Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovations Bell Curve, mainstream consumer behavior gathers momentum, manifesting into influential and telling market indicators. This invaluable behavior and sentiment eventually becomes deafening and without actively monitoring and analyzing this movement, we miss opportunities to learn, grow, and help. We need a prescribed lens into the real-time thoughts, observations, and experiences of real people, unfiltered, to make informed decisions and both lead and evolve along with…

Newsflash: There are more men than women speaking about tech

Guest post by Cathy Brooks, read her blog | follow her on Twitter There are more men than women in the tech and new media sectors… I know. Shocking. Joking aside, I thought it was time to take a slightly different whack at the conversational kerfuffle that’s percolated yet again in recent weeks. Yes, that seemingly unsinkable subject – the lack of women on the tech industry speaking circuit. So when Brian Solis graciously offered me the opportunity to guest…

Gary Vaynerchuk and Brian Solis Discuss Putting the Public Back in Public Relations

I’ve long promised to start shooting and publishing interviews with those whom inspire me. While this isn’t the official debut of this imminent series, it is a representation of what’s possible. In fact, once I complete the writing for the next book, I will place the video series on an accelerated path to production. Nonetheless, Gary Vaynerchuk of WineLibraryTV has written a new book, Crush It, which will hit the market in mid October. While I was in New York…

The State and Future of Communications: An Interview with Kara Swisher

This week, I was invited to speak at the Girls in Tech event in San Francisco as part of its evening discussing and exploring the nuances and opportunities defining and fueling Journalism 2.0.  I’ve supported GIT founder Adriana Gascoigne since the beginning and will always help the chapters that now exist around the world.

A Pictorial History of Twitter’s Rise to Pop Culture

  Every now and then I discover something that is so captivating, that I have to stop what I’m working on to share it with everyone I know. This is one of them. For those veterans who continue to define Twitter’s role in how we communicate, share and learn, those who have recently made its acquaintance, and those just finding their stride, we all linked through common threads and context that pique our curiosity, stimulate our quest for adventure,  expand…

Social Media is Rife with Experts but Starved of Authorities

  Perhaps Lewis Carroll was peering into the looking glass when he wrote “Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.” In it, we were introduced to Tweetle Dum and Tweetle Dee, a curious duo that always shared a fruitful, entertaining, and complementary conversational exchange even though they always agreed to battle each other. Some suggest that the significance of Alice’s encounter with the twins explores how curiosity leads to the unknown and therefore, may not be worthy of…

A Soliloquy: The Language of Social Media

© Tyler E Nixon (This is a striking photograph) While I was traveling in NY for InternetWeek and DC for the Vocus conference recently, Mark Olson sent a note inviting my thoughts on a post he was authoring on the subject of authenticity versus authority. I immediately replied, “I’m in.” This is a subject that is garnering much of my attention and contemplation as they are among the key words that orbit the social media marketing universe and are in…

Is Twitter a Conversation or Broadcast Platform?

Are we seeing the Twitterverse through rose colored glasses? In January 2009 I pondered whether or not Twitter was a viable conversation platform. After all, Twitter is one of the darlings of Social Media and it is conversations and the democratization of content that fuel the rapid expansion and adoption of social tools and services. Just ask any social media “expert” and they’ll tell you that you must absolutely establish a Twitter account and commence the process of responding to…
