Facebook, Twitter LinkedIn, Ulitzer, MeettheBoss - Execs Go Online Big-Time

New Media on Ulitzer A recent study run by online business networking service www.MeettheBoss.com shows that executives are spending an extra 11 hours a month online sharing their professional experiences and learning from their peers. The survey asked its executive users what direct value they gained from spending time running blogs, writing tweets and connecting with other executives on sites such as LinkedIn, Xing, MeettheBoss, Ryze, Facebook, Ulitzer and Twitter. The answers revealed that executives proficient with online activities are spending an average of 11 hours more per month online than this time last year – and over 90% of respondents said they felt their time online was ‘very valuable’ to their daily role.

From Tehran to You Live on Ulitzer: The Wind of Change is Blowing

Social Media Journal on Ulitzer I have been waiting for a worthy topic to make my first Ulitzer post and the events taking place in Iran are sweeping the Internet and world by storm. Below is an email providing a first hand account of the events that took place in Tehran on June 15th, 2009. My sincere hopes and wishes are with the people of Iran in this tumultuous time. If you find this report of any value, please share it with as many people as possible. Facebook is filtered and internet is very slow in Iran! Observations On The Course Of Events of 15th June 2009 in Tehran I left my home in Tajrish along with my family at 3 p.m. We went down Valiast Street which is the main northern-southern avenue in Tehran and entered the Evin Exp'way which leads to Enghelab Street. We knew that people are supposed to gather in Enghelab Sq. (Revolution Sq.) at 4 and march toward A... (more)

Confessions of a Ulitzer Addict

John Funnel on Ulitzer Earlier this year one of my staff attended a SYS-CON event and returned to the office a different person. Revitalised and motivated. I asked her what happened at the event to warrant such a transformation? What was her secret? Was it the New York Shopping experience? A business Romance or was it Devine intervention? She simply advised me to ‘check out Ulitzer. – Everyone who is anyone is on it’. She was not the first to introduce me to the innovation. Many of my peers had gone through such noticeable changes, It was like a weight had been lifted from their shoulders, that they now had a true portal to vent out their innermost thoughts. I was instantly intrigued by such recommendations. People, just like me, were using Ulitzer everywhere. So what had I been fighting against all this time? What was I avoiding? Eventually I succumbed to the in... (more)

Okta Seeks to Accelerate Secure Adoption of Cloud Apps

"Enterprises everywhere are realizing the inherent benefits of running their core IT services in the cloud,” said Todd McKinnon, most recently VP of Engineering at Salesforce.com from 2003 to 2009, and now CEO of the on-demand identity and access management service, Okta. "This shift fundamentally requires them to rethink their IT infrastructure and how their employees access it," McKinnon added. "Okta," he continued, "is the only enterprise class, on-demand service purpose built to help customer secure and manage their entire cloud services network and the people who need access to it, with no professional services required." McKinnon was commenting on the day that he and his team launched a new on-demand service to accelerate the secure adoption of Cloud Apps. Pandora, LiveOps, Enterasys, FusionStorm, and AMAG Pharmaceuticals are the first to roll out Okta identity... (more)

Cisco, Technological Universalism & the Unification of IT

Arguably the biggest buzz word so far in 2009 isn't cloud computing, but instead the term "unified". As some of you may have seen earlier this week Cisco announced a new server-centric strategy, which is underpinned by the use of a "unified computing" methodology. Cisco's new computing mantra is being applied to the broader management of data center resources (compute, storage, and network elements) through a singular virtualized point of interaction. In a sense they are attempting the unification of the the entire infrastructure stack in what some are calling a unified infrastructure fabric. There have been some interesting points of view on this topic recently in particular was Lydia Leong at Gartner's insight in which she said "He who controls the entire enchilada — the management platform — is king of the data center. There will be personnel who are empire-build... (more)

How to Tell a Twitter Story: The Art of the 140-Character Twittecdote

A challenge for many who are new to Twitter is knowing what to say, how to say it, and how often to say it. But many have discovered that the 140-character limitation--even less when you are replying to someone--focuses the mind wonderfully, resulting in a new precision and elegance in their writing. Has Twitter, a classic geek invention, unwittingly spawned a new form of literature? I know I'm not the first person to think of this, and that I won't be the best writer to create in this form. But, hopeless idealist and all-around good guy that I am, I present my first three twittecdotes for your perusal and inspiration. The stories all involve my brushes with famous people, aka namedropping. Enjoy! -- Ballmer keynotes our gig. Arrives green room with secs to spare. Says "hi," then "excuse me." Cuts huge fart. Says "sorry." Then presents. -- Entered Bill's house, fir... (more)

My Homepage on the Brand-new Ulitzer Platform!

Today I've discovered my new home page on the brand-new Ulitzer platform: It's a new service (still in beta) that allows users to create their own magazine.

Automated Social Media Governance and Government 2.0

With the proliferation of Internet-based tools and forums to share information, deliver announcements or warnings and create collaborative networks, it’s become apparent that “self-policing” strategies for controlling and managing the risks involved in delivering content through the corporate firewall can’t mitigate most risks. Most corporations and government agencies do indeed require, as terms of employment and various legislation, that care be taken and policies or procedures followed when engaging in online public discourse or otherwise moving content from the corporate-controlled environment to the public Internet. Over the past years, many good tools and governance frameworks have been developed as a routine matter of enabling Internet content posting, distribution and syndication – but these have mostly focused on automation, protection and monitoring proced...

Is Ulitzer a New Trend or the Ultimate Death of Journalism?

I must confess I am very new to Ulitzer as an online channel of social communication media. But I am delighted about its raison d'être. However, I cannot but ask these questions: Is Ulitzer the beginning of a new trend or the ultimate death of journalism? Or is it the glorification of e-journalism? The realization of new journalism practice in the age of Web services and Internet Technology? These series of questions are being answered everyday as the new social media moguls and barons and baronesses of the Internet Media launched another online media channel, one after another. We must give kudos to the visionaries among us who realize the powerful role of Internet technology and quickly seized on its powerful promise by giving voice to every kind of idea and thought under the sun. And what has technology not redefined yet? Think about it, from e-retailing to e-democr... (more)
