Really Stupid Tech Conference Ideas: Web 3.0 Conference

From Web 3.0 Journal Folks, now this is really really stupid. As the geniuses at O'Reilly and CMP Media struggle to keep the last and what may very well be the final one of their Web 2.0 Expos, another group of brilliant entrepreneurs announced their Web 3.0 Conference, after hearing the news that Web 2.0 is extremely dead now. Web 2.0 was a big scam to start with. The name "Web 2.0" was stolen by Mr. Tim O'Reilly (the prophet) from Imagine Media's brilliant new launch of "Business 2.0 Magazine" during the heyday of the dot-com explosion. The promise of Web 2.0 was that everybody in the software industry would be billionaires just like the folks who introduced MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, etc. Of course this never happened. Now it will be amusing to watch these Web 3.0 jokesters doing a Web 3.0 conference. I am waiting for the announcement of the Web 4.0 conference by ... (more)

Government Social Media & Cloud Computing

GovIT at Cloud Expo June 23, 2009 - During this morning’s IAC breakfast, discussing “Transparency, Collaboration and Web 2.0”, a panelist made a very interesting point. While the US Federal Government’s use of Internet social media services and cloud-based information-sharing applications is well underway, albeit at the very earliest of stages (mainly due to significant policy, privacy, security and simple “newness” issues), by far one of the major risks lies with accountability. Accountability in collaboration and information-sharing environments is typically achieved to some degree by association of metadata with the information packages being exchanged, or with the “containers” of online events and the trusted identities of those participating in the dialogue. With social media applications and contexts like Twitter or Facebook, however, there are far too many w... (more)

Social Media on Ulitzer - Strategy Nets New AUM for RIA

Social Media on Ulitzer RIAbiz.com recently discussed the findings of an August 24-25, 2009 Investment News survey conducted on the Twitter habits of the financial-advisory community.  Not surprisingly the survey reveals that "a mere 14.9% of financial advisers say they communicate with clients or colleagues through Twitter.  Meanwhile, only 44.9% and 43.8% of advisers say they use LinkedIn and Facebook, respectively, the survey found". Have RIAbiz.com and Investment News missed the point?  It's not about Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn!  It's about communicating with one's customers and clients utilizing ALL the tools available! So, what's my point? Practical, functional, and sensible go a long way to enhancing the relationships financial advisors are trying to create between themselves and their customers and clients, with or without social media tools.  Social me...

Top 10 Things That Make You a Good PR Client

Often when we have a call with a new client who is getting started with BLASTmedia, we get the question, “what makes a good client?” or “what makes for the best client/agency relationship?” By simply asking this question, they have already knocked out one of the best things clients can do when they are coming on-board with any public relations agency. With this post, I’ve pulled in some input from my BLAST colleagues to address some of the top things companies can do to make them a “good PR client,” so here it goes. 1) They ask how they can have the best client relationship! It seems like a simple question, but some clients never ask how they can enable PR agencies to do the best job on their account. If you’re going to pay for a PR agency, why not help them succeed? It’s like buying a brand-new car. It can get you to where you want to go, but if you never take th... (more)

Who Do You Trust To Meter The Cloud?

Tom Raftery at Greenmonk (the green shoot from Redmonk) has a great analysis of the disastrous use of smart meters by PG&E in Bakersfield, California. He quotes SmartMeters.com that: Bakersfield residents believe their new smart meters are malfunctioning because their bills are much higher than before. PG&E claims higher bills are due to rate hikes, an unusually warm summer, and customers not shifting demand to off-peak times when rates are lower. http://www.smartmeters.com/the-news/682-lawsuit-filed-against-pgae-for-smart-meter-overcharges.html In the same story on smartmeters.com, State Senator Dean Florez, the Majority Leader in California, is quoted as saying “People think these meters are fraud meters. They feel they’re being defrauded. They’re getting no benefit from these things.” This after $2.2b (yes, billion) was spent on the project. Tom Raftery goes on to say: ... (more)
