The first of many PAB2010 speaker announcements

Once again this year, the submissions for speaking sessions at PAB2010 have been just incredible. This of course makes it difficult to make speaker selections while still making time to plan the social events, oversee registration, make arrangements for a group rate at a hotel and work with the facilities folks to map out the […]

News junkies or techies: who carries more influence?

Whitney Hoffman has a great post in which she suggests the battle of the search engines will lead to walled gardens of information (see Searching Walled Gardens…). Her post is in response to Microsoft’s plan to pay Rupert Murdoch for exclusive search access to news sites such as the Wall Street Journal. I see there being […]

Whitney Hoffman has published a few blog posts this week relating to the demands put upon conference organizers by last-minute registrations (see Your Failure to Plan Ahead is Not My Emergency, Law of Supply and Demand and What Happened to the Social Contract?).  I’d like to add another component to the discussion: The rule of […]

Networks as Rabbits and Turtles

During her presentation at PAB2008, Whitney Hoffman provided her analysis of a fledgling and still relatively unknown podcast network that had great promise when it was launched last September. Whitney outlined what appears to be a breakdown in communications, lack of transparency and possibly the use of bloated claims to market the network to would-be […]

Have a coffee? Go to PodCamp?

Whitney Hoffman and I spoke Sunday evening about the debate over the fee for the upcoming PodCamp Boston.  It seems that many people are quite upset about the fee and have used the argument that communities shouldn’t charge its members to participate in events.  That’s when we started to talk about physical communities and financial […]
