I’m the #1 PM Blogger!

The Association of International Product Marketing and Management (AIPMM) held their educational conference this week and hosted a “Battle of the Product Management Bloggers” contest which I was happy to be asked to take part in.  At short notice my travel plans changed and when I let them know I couldn’t make it, they invited me to do my presentation remotely over Skype.

The last prize was a catered holiday dinner for 8 people from the Fairmont San Jose!  Woo Hoo!  I’ve got big plans for that one,...

Marketing Lessons from Foursquare

Foursquare is a location-based social networking application that’s been described “Twitter for locations.” It lets users subscribe to each other and the information shared is about where you are rather than what you are doing. It’s been rolling out on a city by city basis over the past few months. I finally got a chance to try it and I think there are some interesting things that marketers can learn from foursquare.
