At the close of the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, the feeling is that you are among an elite group of Web 2.0 trailblazers. True, they’re all running businesses and promoting their brands, but they still carry with them the now traditional mantra “content is king” like a Coat of Arms.
I don’t agree with his position, but Steve Forbes makes some good points against Network Neutrality on PodTech.net today. Catherine Girardeau (who’ll be my coworker at PodTech starting on July 6) did an awesome job interviewing Steve.
Excitement is building for Apple Computer’s Worldwide Developer Conference, at which its new operating system, Mac OS X Leopard, is to be shown for the first time. The company says that innovative ideas will abound at the event, with the number of sessions expected to reach 130.
The chief complaints of the telecommunications industry regarding the heated Network Neutrality debate are that regulation limits their ability to compete, build out infrastructure, and innovate; that regulation is unnecessary as principles outlined by the FCC are sufficient to guard it and that telcos like Verizon have already publicly committed to them; and that Net Neutrality is still too poorly defined to write legislation around it.
There’s still plenty of room to grow for local search marketers, according to panelists at the Yellow Pages Association (YPA) Annual Conferences. Though small businesses that have invested in local search advertising report good results overall, many of them still aren’t exploring the medium.
iEntry Inc’s Mike McDonald is heading to Bean Town for next week’s PubCon, put on by WebMasterWorld. And just for you, our loyal readership, he will exercise the restraint of an ascetic monk, depriving himself of Boston’s basketball heritage just long enough to relay the latest developments in web marketing and e-commerce.
Stereotypes aside, Kentucky ain’t New York. Business, especially e-business, brings all types to the Big Apple. Mike McDonald and I were just two of those types who gathered there for the Search Engine Strategies Conference. When we weren’t jaw-agape or horrified by something, we were dutifully taking notes and chatting up attendees.
A marketing agreement between business communications firm Avaya and SAP America will see the companies jointly market products in the customer relationship management space; meanwhile a year has passed since the start of the AMQ project, which aims to create an open messaging queuing solution.
So far only 4 percent of those polled say they use RSS (really simple syndication). Yahoo Senior Director of Personalization Products, Scott Gatz, says that number should be closer to 27 percent, as many use RSS and don’t know it. Yahoo began publishing RSS feeds via Yahoo News and Yahoo Buzz back in 2003.
A successful video or web conference can really give a boost to your organization. Online conferencing is now connecting people in a way that was not possible in the pre-Internet era.
Believe it or not, Firefox 1.0 has been around for less than a year. In that short time, it has gained at least 10% of the browser marketshare and spurred Microsoft to finally bring back Internet Explorer from its innovation stasis.
In wrapping up the first day of the SES Conference, I have for you a brief summary of all the articles that have been written so far. We have had lots of interesting information coming in from the conference, and hopefully no one has missed any of it. If that isn’t the case don’t worry, I’ve taken care of you.
Innovation in the competitive search engine and directory markets: how the internet is the perfect medium for David to take on Goliath. The pursuit of online information has become an increasingly dynamic and competitive marketplace during the past three years.
With the advent, in recent years, of high-tech conference centers boasting amenities seen before only at hotels and resorts, companies are increasingly choosing to conduct their training sessions at off-site locations. However, all venues are not the same, and consequently it has never been more important for companies to choose the right conference center for their corporate training programs.
Conference calling can save you money. There is no doubt that in the sales business, every second counts.
Just finishing up here for today. I’ve been wandering the Demo Pavilion area, chatting with the various vendors. There’s a nice reception sponsored by Intercall and Microsoft Office LiveMeeting.
I’m off to New Orleans for the Webmaster World Search conference. It looks like the weather will be a bit warmer and more humid than I’m used to.
Originally the conference call was limited to businesses paying exorbitant fees to the telcos. For business, it still made sense economically because the costs were less than the travel costs involved in bringing the people together. Additionally, significant time savings are involved, both in terms of travel time and in being able to communicate fairly rapidly to an extended group.
After a 0.6% drop in March, and no change in April, the Composite Index of Leading Economic Indicators fell 0.5% last month according to a report from the Conference Board.
So, I’m waiting for a session on real-time communication technologies to start. Just sat in on a panel on blogs and wikis for companies. I’m not going blog it, even though it was interesting. Anil Dash from Six Apart was up there, as well as Ross Mayfield from social text and Peter Theony of Twiki. Good stuff, but nothing I didn’t really know.
