  • Blog Post: BlogHer| bet - why Bing reaches out to startups, and why a conference like this is fun in general

    Last Friday I had the privilege of both speaking and mentoring at the inaugural BlogHer | bet conference, both as a Bing PR/marketing person and as social media/community application/games program manager. It's an unusual conference and so I'll lay out a bit of the format and then give some flavor of...
  • Blog Post: Bing at Blogher 2009 (aka #blogher09): Part One

    I'm writing this in the Chicago airport in the familiar happy post-conference exhaustion. Unlike my previous Blogher attendance, I was doing more booth babe/evangelism of a product than being a social media expert, and it was cool to see how folks have reacted to Bing.

I click my mouse and a magic window opens up. I type in...

    Yay! I am going to be with a panel with other cool bloggers speaking about building online communities. (You can see the common thread to my speaking gigs. :) They do a very interactive panel, so it's not so much powerpoint decks and harrumphing but back and forth between the audience and the panel...
  • Blog Post: Betsy Does Austin: South by Southwest Interactive and 20 x 2

    I'm honored to be among the speakers at South by Southwest Interactive this year. Our panel is called World Domination via Collaboration (yes, I realized the irony of a member of the "borg" talking about world domination) and I think it's going to rawk! Jory DesJardins and Lisa Stone , co founders...
