My New Friend Denise Wakeman

July 19, 2007

I’m one of the experts on small business to be asked by Wells Fargo to participate in their Webcast coming up on August 15th (register here). As always, I try to learn from everyone I meet, and one of the other panelists is Denise Wakeman, cofounder of The Blog Squad.

She’s been blogging (of course) about the Webcast in some detail, and here she mentions another blog I like: FlushTV, run by a Brooklyn plumbing company. Denise says it best, but this just proves any company can benefit when making themselves more open to their customers.

Feedback from Detroit Bloggers

June 17, 2007

I’ve been slightly disappointed that no reports of my ITEC speeches this year have appeared in blogs, but that changed in Detroit. Not one but two bloggers came to my keynote speech and reported on same. Luckily they both seemed to like what I had to say.

Check out reports from YaZug and Bill Gratsch. If you’re near Seattle or Indianapolis come see for yourself (June 20th and 27th respectively).

Twisted Pair Shout Out

If you haven’t listened to Keith Shaw and Jason Meserve’s Twisted Pair weekly audio podcast, you’re missing some fun. This week they talked about listener response to Keith’s rant after a Microsoft computer meltdown. Hey, guys, if you want e-mails for and against switching away from Microsoft to a Mac, I’ve got 47 from last summer you can have. There’s also strings of user comments on previous newsletters mentioning Macintosh or complaining about Microsoft (I do my fair share). Read the rest of this entry »
