LinkedIn's 2nd PR hire. These are my thoughts on products, public relations, and startups.

Well, I always thought that my blogger friends are divided into 2 categories the EC & WC bloggers…you know like the east coast and west coast hip-hop artists! Just kidding…

And I have always wondered what’d happen when “the twain did meet”. Last week, our friends from the Bay Area — Jeremiah Owyang and Robert Scoble, travelled to Chicago for the Ragan PR conference and hung out with very our own marketing bloggers David Armano and Chris Thilk.

What’s better; they actually thought very highly of each other. Here’s Scoble:

Well, tonight I met a bunch of great people, including David Armano who has the very fine Logic+Emotion blog (it was featured in Business Week this week). Now, I’m far more likely to remember David because he made a deep impression on me when meeting face-to-face (he looks a lot like Vic Gundotra, actually) and now that I’m reading his blog I see that it’s an awesome look at design, among other things. Subscribed.

Maybe we should have an Annual Marketing Bloggers Convention. That would give us all a chance to meet each other. Also, Congratulations to David for making it onto Business Week. He shares the stage with Jim Carrol, TED Blog, and the Innovation Tools Blog as one of Four Sources for Trends & Ideas. Way to go, David!

//del.icio.us party at Yahoo! HQ

While on the topic of events, It looks like the whole of the bay area will be at next week’s del.icio.us event at Yahoo! HQ. So if you haven’t RSVP’d yet, go to the link above and confirm.

Why are we having the party?

It’s apparently an excuse to party but the “real” reason is that del.icio.us has made it 3 years running and that’s good enough of a reason to party for us. So if you’re from the Bay Area. Be there. RSVP.

    Thanks Mario. I didn’t think I was the type to go to these kinds of things, but it really is nice to meet some of the people you hear about in person.

    Never underestimate the “face to face”.

    I’m with you on that one, David. Face-to-Face still rules.

    Hope to meet you and the blogging gang sometime soon.

    Yes, I vote for an Annual Marketing Bloggers Convention. There are many where we can meet each other (e.g. WOMMA, Syndicate, etc.) but I’d love to meet all…perhaps we can hold the 1st in NYC :-).

    Thanks, CK, for jumping onto the AMBC bandwagon!

    It’d be great to have one and what better place to hold it than in NYC. I’m totally for it.

    In the meanwhile, keep me posted of any trips to the Bay Area and we can meet up then.

    Likely I’ll be in SF by end of year, if not next month. I’ll definitely be reaching out to you when I know my dates of travel. But you’re welcome in the BIG apple anytime :-).

    Sounds great, CK.

    Looks like we’ll soon have an opportunity to meet. Let me know when you’ll be in town and we can organize a Bay Area blogger get-together.

    I’d love for an excuse to travel to NYC. Will keep you posted of plans.
