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!
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.
