Trying to keep up with your Twitter timeline can be a challenge if you follow more than a few hundred people.  It can be a pain point if you are managing a Twitter account following thousands of people. Listing hundreds of tweets can make you spend time trying to see the forest one tree at […]

Leadership in online influence scoring is becoming embattled territory as services in this area include Klout, Kred, Tweet Grader (by Hubspot), and Tweet Level. But one should note, all are driven by black box algorithms that vye for the title of industry  “gold standard” for anointing online influencers. This isn’t pure vanity either; knowing the level […]

Although there has been discussion about problems in the newspaper business for a decade or more, the volume has really ramped up in the past few months as the financial crisis has put a lot of sterling properties on their back foot.

This morning, Claude and I went to a breakfast mini-conference hosted by the AMM-PCM (the Association marketing de Montréal) at the HEC: Les blogues d’entreprise en 3 temps. The conference was very well put together and considered three themes: business transparency, blogs and authenticity, and the risks associated with employee blogging. Sometimes events like these in […]

On my last trip to Paris I had lunch with Gilles Prigent, founder of Take Part Media and creator and administrator of Scitizen. Scitizen is a peer reviewed science news source: news edited and created directly by the scientists who make it, directed to well, everyone.
