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.

It was my first visit (finally) to this event, and as expected there was lots to learn, discuss—and ask.

LaunchCamp; Boston Conference Underscores Need for More “101,” Not Less

I recently had the pleasure of attending LaunchCamp in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The event, organized by Todd Van Hoosear and Chuck Tanowitz of Fresh Ground Communications (and both former colleagues), was a new one but took place in partnership with the long-running Social Media Breakfast and the Social Media Club. The partnership implied that a number […]
