“…it’s all about the fine folks at intel who are so passionate about networking that it was about time to launch their very own little popurls at blue.popurls.com. the site is built exclusively for enterprise IT professionals and comes in a strictly limited blue edition…”
the popurls blog: thank you intel!
This sponsorship has proven to be a great story to tell how we can aggregate and emphasize blog posts and conversations around topic important to Intel. Sure Intel is blogging and connecting with others in communities, but there are many great conversations out there that are great to collect and watch. And bringing related blog posts and information from Intel experts near this collection helps create the association…and makes it easy for readers to dig deeper, learn more about the topics of interest.
To me, this is a similar example to the widget Tom Foremski created for my team. It features a Podcast player and feeds from Intel blogs, all updated dynamically whenever a new video, audio or text story is published. My Intel team sponsors Tom’s SiliconValleyWatcher site because he covers the topics and talks with many of the people we’re interested in. Plus, we have a long history of working with the trusted journalist turned writer/video blogger on the enterprise scene.
Both the PopURLs and SiliconValleyWatcher sponsorships have helped us visualize new directions we can take — advertising conversations vs. inactive billboard ads. These are steps I believe will suceced if they are mutually beneficial, cost effective and truly add value to audiences enjoying new media.
For the second year in a row at CES, PodTech’s BlogHaus was the place to be whenever you weren’t on the showroom floor, eating or taking a bathroom break (notice I didn’t say sleeping). It was a great place to see friends like Tom Foremski, Michael Johnson, John Furrier, Reboot gaming guru Rio Pasino, Robert Scoble and his video shooting/editing partner in crime Rocky. I got to catch up with many of them and made new friends. The PodTech crew pumped out lots of great video, audio and blog stories from the BlogHaus, located deep inside the bellissima albergo di Bellagio.
I got to hear about the blogger bus ride from the Bay Area and see what Tom Foremski was excited about as he arrived in Las Vegas for CES 2008. Here’s a look at one thing Tom released from CES:

Robert is an extraordinary and tireless media producing machine. He would run 24/7 if he could, and he sometimes does.
Here are a couple of days of Robert at CES2008 in Las Vegas and the PodTech BlogHaus, (which was a great place to hang out…)
Tom Foremski captures a group of Facebook application creators in Palo Alto. I’m one of the millions loving the fun apps on Facebook that help tie together different social media tools I’m using. Great stuff! Thanks, Tom.

I spent Saturday afternoon crammed into a room in Palo Alto with a couple of hundred people listening to presentations from young developers creating Facebook apps. The enthusiasm was great and there was a sense of being at the start of something big.
