Podcast Available on Using RSS for Marketing

SXSW has finally posted the full audio podcast of the panel I moderated called Using RSS for Marketing. In addition, a short highlight video podcast was posted as well. Check them out to get a feel for the content at the SXSW conference and learn about marketing with RSS from the panelists which included Emily Chang, Bill Flitter, Greg Reinacker, and John Jantsch.

SXSW: Using RSS for Marketing

Since Using RSS for Marketing was the panel I moderated, I don’t have any actual live notes. As a 10am Sunday morning panel, I was worried no one would be in the room due to the daylight savings time change (and the late night partying). I was relieved to see we had a packed room by the time the panel started. The panel went quite well in my opinion as we accomplished my goal of covering the topics we laid

SXSW: Recap

Another great SXSW conference wrapped up last week and I’m finally getting a chance to transfer some of my notes to the blog. So beware, the next few posts will mostly be SXSW recaps! Once again, I’m glad I attended this year. I truly believe this is a must attend event for anyone in this industry. If you’re involved with anything related to the web, design, technology, or entrepreneurship in this space it’s the best conference to attend each year.

Arrived in Austin at SXSW

Just like last year, I’m not sure how much real-time blogging of the SXSW conference I’ll actually be doing. I’ll probably end up twittering most of it and then taking notes on good old fashioned notepads. I’ll then transcribe some of the most useful of those notes into posts on SXSW later. If you’re here for SXSW, check out the panel I’m moderating Sunday morning at 10am, Using RSS for Marketing. Technorati Tags: sxsw

SXSW Interactive Panel Discussion

As I previously mentioned here on my blog, I have a panel at this year’s SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, Texas.

Please visit her post and add your thoughts (even if you can’t attend this year). One of the ideas I’m specifically interested in hearing about is

SXSW: closing thoughts

Overall, I was very impressed with SXSW Interactive 2006 especially given the event is mostly a volunteer effort. After the initial confusion with signs and registration on Friday, everything else ran incredibly smooth as far as my experience. My goals for this event were to learn and gain new ideas, to get some creative and business inspiration from the panelists and attendees, and to essentially recharge my batteries. The more I talked to people at the conference, the more I

SXSW: Cashing In Or Selling Out: The Future of the Independent Web

Cashing in or selling out? Great title for a panel, but it was the last one on the final day so my notes are understandably shorter than the others. The summary from SXSW on this panel was: You slave independently to build great things, so great that everyone wants to buy your creations. What approach do you take when big money comes calling? The panel included Jane Wells (Info Designer, Superdecent), Mike Tatum (VP Strategy & Dev, CNET), Chris Messina

SXSW: Tagging 2.0

The panel on tagging was excellent. As tags and tagging comprise so many ideas, this panel did a great job of covering a little bit of everything so the attendee left with a better overall understanding of the topic. From SXSW: “Tagging 2.0” – is tagging (user-driven description of data on the Web) *THE* key element of “Web 2.0”? What new tools can help us organize an internet’s worth of information for our own use and to share with others?
