Five in the Morning 010809

Real-time. Chris Brogan today talks about real-time coverage of events, using as an example his live-tweeting of a press conference last night. What do you think – how much of a game-changer is this? Frankly, I think that the convergence of the tools (cameras, smartphones, etc.) and the platforms (blogging, Twitter, etc.) has already fundamentally changed the game. Immediacy is now here, and we’re just realizing it. Latency is….well, a thing of the past.

2009 – The Year of Going Social. From the blog of Laura Fitton (Pistachio). “The bad news for business? You’re late. The good news? You’re not too late…”

Is Social Media the same as Marketing? Beth Harte‘s asking – what do you think? I’m guessing most of us have had this discussion, at least in our own heads. “…a good communicator does not always make a good marketer nor does a good marketer always make a good communicator. They are two different disciplines.”

Want a nice daily summary of some Social Networking headlines? Here’s one of my secrets. Business Week‘s Business Exchange. Worth a daily visit.

Jeremiah Owyang provides a nice summary blog post of Social Networking news each week. Well worth subscribing to. Here’s the latest.

PLUS – What’s Cramberry? A cool spin on an old technique. Too neat-o to pass up a link. From ReadWriteWeb. And, just because the headline is so imaginative: The Art of One Butt Cheek Blogging (from Copyblogger).

  1. Interesting stuff indeed Steve.

    Got to tell you this : I’m impressed by your “5 in the morning, up and ready”. Yesterday eve I thought… let’s go to bed early and do it “à la Steve”. Wife was laughing at me at breakfast, after I slept through the alarm clock until she had to kick me out of the bed. Man… there is some training ahead, but hey… I definitely like the spirit behind this. ; )

    Hi Steve, thanks for the link love! 🙂 Lots to check out here this AM. As usual I love that I only need to come one place to get it all the day’s goodies. 🙂

    Thanks so much for including the Cramberry post. Commenters are mentioning some other services of the same ilk, so hopefully folks will find one that they like. 😉
