Don’t Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise, In-Person Still Gets the Job Done

Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport … remind me again why I’m here? Don’t get me wrong, I like Oregon, and Medford is a nice place, but it’s not one of the top 10 cities (or, let’s be honest, 20 or 30) that come to mind when you think of where you’ll end up on a tech […]

24-Hour News Cycle (R.I.P)

I got suckered recently (a subject for another post) into a cheesemo teleseminar on media trends. In it, one of the brilliant speakers proclaimed with confidence that the world’s media still operate within a 24-hour news cycle. Heh? What world is that?

Online Rules the Political Arena: The 2008 E-lection

In the Fall of 2006, long before the historical CNN-YouTube Democratic Candidate debate, before Barely Political’s Obama Girl took center stage, and before Hillary Clinton’s user-generated campaign song contest – sources including the New York Times and the L.A. Times already predicted the upcoming 2008 election to be the “YouTube Election.” Having been a political […]

The WSJ Gets SaaSy!

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the May 15th issue of the The Wall Street Journal.

Thirsty Bear Hosts Thirsty RSA Attendees

I traveled to Sacramento this past weekend to catch up with an old friend who recently became engaged. We’ll call him Eric. Eric was also playing in an annual poker tournament with his brother-in-law and friends, so they invited me along. Whether dumb luck or pure skill (the line is so fine) I managed to […]

Let Them Speak

I recently flew to Windsor in the UK for some international partner planning meetings.
