Impressions from Monitoring Social Media Boston

On Tuesday October 5, I attended the Monitoring Social Media Conference in Boston, and was honored to be asked to speak. As I suspected that many of the speakers would be focused on measurement and the tools we use to monitor, I decided to stand in among them all and concentrate on what needed to […]

140 Characters Conference- Finding Voice and Learning from Individuals on Twitter

On September 14 I had the pleasure of speaking at the 140 Characters Conference in Boston, conceived and hosted by Jeff Pulver. I was fortunate to be invited to speak to the crowd of 400 – my topic was “finding your voice.” In a nutshell, while we love to measure followers, engagement and content, the quantitative data […]

F.I.R.E. Sessions Redux

Yes, I’m a bit late on this, but just wanted to post some thoughts on the F.I.R.E. Sessions 2010 held by my friends at Brains on Fire. I had been burned out on conferences….too many of the same conversations and it sounds bad to say, the same people. The F.I.R.E. Sessions were my first conference […]

It was a timely topic because I had been seeing a few posts lately that made me think that we are growing weary of the blog-as-news-feed format, and need to think fresh about how we present our content. This starts, […]

Innovation Events: a Tale of Two Coasts

Being based in Boston but spending a fair amount of time in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, I have had a chance to sample the “innovation” communities in both regions. One thing that struck me- and the catalyst for this post- is that in both areas I have seen events that  highlight selected entrepreneurs, and […]

MassTLC’s Social Media Summit: Echo Chamber vs Diversity, and Yes to Measurement

Last week, I attended the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council’s Social Media Summit at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge. A little background: two years ago, the Mass TLC held their first social media “unconference” event. What was fascinating then was not that a group of established New England technology masters mingled with some of the newer “social […]

I consider it a privilege, living in Boston, to be associated with one of the most active, creative and just plain smart groups of social media thinkers in the world. One of our regular gatherings s the Social Media Breakfast, which takes place in many cities, but was founded (as was PodCamp) right here in […]

Impressions From New Communications Forum

This past week, I attended the New Communications Forum, birthplace of the Society for New Communications Research. It was my first visit (finally) to this event, and as expected there was lots to learn, discuss—and ask. Here are some impressions of the sessions I attended, along with samples of in-the-moment Twitter commentary: Tuesday opening keynote […]
