I wanted to share my lightning round talk in September at the tremendously brilliant and successful CS Forum 11 in London. It’s quick.
Less than 24 hours ago, I was in a meeting with 5 writers and each of them was petrified. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss “innovative” ways to make content more relevant to our audience.

The great thing about live blogging a conference is the insane amount of information received, retained and interpreted. That bad thing? You run out of steam.

Car dealerships have come a long way since the dank, dimly lit showrooms of years past. Today, you can walk into a an area that looks more like a museum bistro […]
Here is the final blog post on today’s #wcconf sessions. Again, this is a rapid fire/real time reaction to the speaker(s). My thoughts in (). (People coming in, I have remained in the same seat for two days. I am going to miss it. In fact, my unhealthy attraction for the Gleacher Center has reached […]
