Blogworld Expo: The Executive and Entrepreneur Conference

Email Email Print

Blogworld runs through Sunday, and has kicked off with new media consultant Dave Taylor and features a strong line-up of the corporate new media professionals, including innovators like Southwest’s Paula Berg, LinkedIn’s Mario Sundar and Compendium’s Chris Baggott.

Politics of course overwhelms this blog and many others every four years, but the explosive growth in new media is on the corporate marketing and customer service sides. This is the second year of Blogworld, and the growth in this sector is astonishing.

InvestorVillage is the “platinum sponsor” of Friday’s business-oriented sessions, and whoever made that decision has got to be happy to have pushed its profile so far forward with this particular group of entrepreneurs.

As Wall Street clears away the wreckage of the past week, month and year, how many of the casualties ought to have seen the storm coming, and how many had new media strategies in place to sweep the online world for clues of incipient upheaval? Rob Neppell at Kithbridge is an evangelist of the web as an early warning system for corporate America –one of the reasons I invested with him– and there are clearly a growing number of converts to that view.

UPDATE: Deborah Micek of TribalSeduction explains Twitter for business better than anyone I have spoken with since it began.
