Quiet Determination in Action

Web 2.0 Excitement

Posted in Of Interest, Personal Actions by missamyyu on July 15, 2009

Hi All,

I’m currently taking a Web 2.0 with Robin Stavisky through the Stanford Continuing Studies program, and we had two FANTASTIC speaker today: Michael Brito from Intel and Jeremiah Owyang from Forrester.  Michael did a fantastic presentation on Twitter and Jeremiah did an equally fantastic presentation on social media metrics / evaluation.  It was super interesting to learn how to utilize Twitter for business use /communication use, and how to look at good and bad social marketing strategies.  One huge take away: social marketing is about communication, not advertising.

Both speakers had some pretty fantastic slides and some good resources for those interested in the future of social media, etc.  Here’s the link to Jeremiah’s blog: http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/ and here is Michael’s Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/Britopian).  They are such nice and intelligent people.  A big thank you to the both of them for taking the time to come and speak with us.

There’s SO much out there, and I haven’t even had a chance to think about how to utilize all these great tools for maximum effect (and fun).    Hopefully I’ll be able to apply some of this to the Jade Ribbon Campaign at some point, but we’ll see.   There’s always much more to do than there is time.

I’ll post some links up about using Twitter for Businesses and other interesting information when I can.  Work’s going to be pretty brutal for the next  four/five weeks with lots of outreach events and Youth Leadership Conference at the end.

Thanks for reading, and let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to focus on!
