Ok, the heading is misleading and would constitute baiting if I cared enough. Found via Dianne Mueller and sure to become an internet meme. Explaining an accounting process need not be dry when you see these cartoons (click on the image). Sure to give the Plain English versions a run for their money. From JICPA, the Japanese Institute of Certified Public Accountants. […]

Good link via great chum Elan Lohmann. Steve Ballmer (Microsoft). This is a semantic follow on from a convo we had once at the Gourmet Garage, where scales lifted from my eyes about Google and advertising. This is an established industry, if you read Dorothy L Sayers you’ll see that advertising in the 1930s and the client-agency-paper relationship is wholly […]
Great research conducted by Brodeur, found via Valerie’s blog. I think the analysis is clear to understand from the stats alone: The biggest impact of blogs is in the speed and availability of news. Over half also said that blogs were having a significant impact on the “tone” (61.8%) and “editorial direction” (51.1%) of news reporting. We’d like to think […]
In February 2007 the London Stock Exchange (LSE) introduced new rules for companies whose shares are traded on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), notably Rule 26 which requires listing corporate information. AIM Rule 26 requires all AIM-listed companies to maintain a web site displaying the details of a company’s management, corporate governance, and financial information, among other particulars.

Hmmm: what if I wanted to reach women age 18 and older who are single or married in Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, and London who like Britney Spears. Oh no, metrics, focus groups, surveys or….. Facebook This is the end of the post, there are far more qualified people to talk about social advertising.
Video says it all really. More here:
Web 2 has always been about communication, not technology. About using all different methods of getting accurate information, collaboration, dissemination. What better time to put it to the test in an organic, non-rational, human situation: the california fires. Mashups of maps, microblogging and user-generated video are some of the uses. Remember the London bombings 2 years ag, where mobile phone […]
Love it or hate it, Facebook and other social media are here and they’re changing the online habits of your employees and customers. It would be churlish to dismiss social media as a fad with no impact on your organisation other than being a tool for employees to squander their billable time; at the same time, Facebook is not going […]
Microsoft is, like SAP, rapidly conceding that Web 2.0 and E2 is a worthy model to deploy into their conventional businesses. Took a look at MS Live yesterday, where users can create a www for free (and paid) and plan an advertising model around it. Good idea, now I see that MS is moving rapidly into advertising. I paraphrase from […]
I blogged last week about techpresident.com and the impact Elections 2.0 is having on the campaigns. Well, YouTube has just upped the ante by getting in on a debate where voters are sending in video messages to presidential hopefuls (much like sending an sms to a live panel show). Read it at the Guardian.co.uk “YouTube, which did not exist during […]
TechPresident is an online aggregating service about all the US Presidential candidates’ use of online social media. You get to measure their effectiveness, or newsworthiness, on Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, and Technorati. Votojournalism The excellent portmanteau of Voter and Photojournalism, for voter-generated content where users post pictures of the candidates on the campaign trail, online. I think the term will be […]
No time to Digg or Muti or Reddit: Heinz writes with an article in Forbes on how advertising in techmedia is drying up and going — where else? — into specialist blogs andGoogle. “Silicon Valley is booming again. But if you work in tech media,there’s blood on the floor. Take Red Herring. It hung onto its officesafter getting the eviction […]
