Big Boulder is an amazing conference I’ve been fortunate enough to attend for the past four years. The conference is focused on social data and I’m working on a summary post about the event. Until then . . . enjoy!

What season is it?

Checkout Whole Foods Pinterest board. What do you notice? Look again. It takes a couple of seconds. (Hint: Read the post title.)

Social needs to be timely and seasonal is a kind of meta-timely. Login and rearrange your boards to be contextual. It’s like Tweeting about a Christmas event in March.

Curation – Now there is a amazing tool called Twitter. Twitter allows you to follow specific...

Privacy

P

I recently received an update on the Big Boulder Initiative from Gnip. (More info here.) There were three things in update that really interested me. 1) Privacy – what is it and how can it be provided,  2) ROI – because we all hate wasting money and 3) Education – I love to teach. The biggest potential to derail social data and it’s application in making businesses...
