Voce Does BlogWell 2008

Yesterday, we attended GasPedal’s BlogWell event at the San Jose Convention Center to get some fresh insights on how big companies are already using social media. Nick Ayres from Home Depot summed up the crowd’s sentiment best when he said: “This conference pretty much shows me that we’re no longer asking IF there’s value in […]
