Its a balance. This was a conference I had an interest in attending. Some sessions I made no media. Being audience and amplifier needs thought. What to capture and what to experience. It's a rare opportunity to spand the day with fellow stagemanagers. I'm looking forward to SMAconf 2014. Continue reading

Quite some press coverage but lets get a little perspective. Bots boost your follow count, this is true. The relationships on Twitter of most importance are those with 'friends'. The ones you follow back. They read your Tweets and you read thier's. We don't control who follows us the only option if you want these bots to disappear is to block them. A twitter count inflated by fake, purchased followers and bots kids no one but your self. Continue reading

Mass media is lazy, passive with ease of access leading to consumer apathy. (ZeeBox is a great antidote to this with its related content links and twitter filter but there is no voice.) It is also expensive and it's production mechanism expensive. Comprehensive coverage be it mainstream production or our 'on the ground' insights require planning and preparation before the delivery of the experience. Continue reading
