Recap: Speaking at WordCamp Chicago 2009

Truly an outstanding weekend! Thanks again to Brain Gardner and Lisa Sabin-Wilson for organizing an outstanding event event! Other than venue issues with Wifi access, it went as smooth as glass.

It was also nice to meet Matt Mullenweg and Jim Turner in person for the first time.  Having all of my great friend from the Chicago SEO friendly meetup group was awesome as well.

It was fun to be part of a late afternoon speaking trio that put myself in between Kevin Palmer and Micah Baldwin. My talk was about the lessons of social media and search engine marketing measurement and how the driver is truly becoming web analytics management consulting to determine the proper course of action in the content strategy revolution. On your domain and blog you own your terms of service, on a social network you do not – this has major implications that need to be considered deciding what is the right path for your content. The talk got some nice reactions both offline and online…


All in all, it was an outstanding weekend and I made some great new friends.  I’m looking forward to Wordcamp Chicago 2010!

  1. I did enjoy the talk and thank you for approaching me. It was great to meet someone and not feel like I was talking strangely….lol.

    I actually linked your site on my blogroll and told people on a recent blog about Tweetmeme and mentioned you. It was about time I put the Tweetmeme on my site anyway, and most of all, I got awesome comments from the developers about them having a beta version of Tweetmeme that is XHTML compatible.

    Thanks again!

  2. Thank you! I’m glad you loved the insight!

    It was great to meet you. It will be interesting to see how Tweetmeme’s relevancy model evolves.
