Guide to Cloud Computing for Media and Marketing

Busy Busy Bee Been Me

Media Marketing at Cloud Expo

It's been crazy the last few months of 2009 in terms of travel and projects.

Monaco Media Forum was a huge success, yet one that sucked up massive amounts of bandwidth before and during the event. Superb speakers and networking. I don't know if I'm cut out to be an editorial programmer in the long run but having the experience of doing it at this level of intensity was great. Hopefully, I'll be able to announce participation to help program a major event on emerging media economies over the next few weeks. Stay tuned.

After Europe, I took a DEEP dive into mobile augmented reality for GigaOm Pro. That one should publish later this month or after the beginning of the year. I'm going to start 2010 with a series of posts about mobile AR here at Media Dojo and on Mediabizbloggers, which is part of Jack Myers site. I've already done my first post there.

Also during November/December, I pitched and scored a presentation gig in the olde country for one of the UK's largest digital publishers. It's a small heavy hitting audience of 25 managing directors with serious budgets and a bad case of WTF is going to happen in media and marketing during 2010. We've got 90min together so it's not a quick and dirty PPT but real deal analysis of media's flip to a mass customized business and what that means.

Of course, there's the ever pressing Media Dojo Guide to Cloud Computing for Media and Marketing, which will publish near the end of January 2010 or early February.

And then, to top it off, I've entered the Pacific NorthWest Indoor Rowing championships for January 30, which means about 40,000+ meters on the indoor rower each week.

In order to balance out all that industriousness, I've penciled in a proper 2 day drunk during February to coincide with the Superbowl.
