I'm in Boston for the Inbound Marketing Summit.
The event is sold out, but you can still sign up for the free video stream. I'm live at 10:30 Eastern and I'll be presenting "r u ready? Leveraging New Technologies to Propel Your Business" and here's the session description:
Social networks microblogging, mobile technologies, online video, cloud computing and virtual worlds -- you've heard the buzz but figure that they're just digital playgrounds for Millennials and geeks. But what if you can tap into the power of these same trends to propel your business into the future? To make every employee more productive, attract more customers and deliver stronger top- and bottom-line results? You can -- but only if you're ready to move beyond the old ways you've always done things, ready to rethink the fundamentals of how business happens, ready to embrace change and ready to take action. You will learn how the "connections economy" will change the way you establish and grow new business relationships, why tomorrow's most successful companies will seamlessly blend work and play, how you can turn "free" into your most powerful revenue generating tool, and how a host of emerging technologies can empower even the smallest of businesses to compete in a fast moving global economy.
If you want to follow the action Geek 2.0 style through tweets, blog posts, photo and video uploads, you can keep an eye on the Inbound Marketing Livestream. If you're at the event and would like to contribute to the livestream, just tag any content you create with the #IMS08 hashtag and the Inboundies will pull it in.
Finally, if you happen to catch this post on Sunday, and in town for the event and are looking to hang out, there is a social media gathering going down at Tommy Doyle's in Kendall Square (6-8pm.) I'm thinking of going so maybe I'll see you there. You can get the deets on Facebook.
