Mobile Marketing Class: Day 1 – Overview


Tonight was the first night of my mobile marketing class. I’ve got 14 students and many of them are VERY sharp. Before class even began I heard students discussing Flipboard and Instagram.

Dennis Crowley of Foursquare at Le Web (video)


I didn’t see it (since I’m unfortunately not in Paris) but I guess the CEO of Forrester proclaimed Foursquare dead at Le Web. This is an interview from the WSJ right after the incident. (I don’t believe Foursquare is dead but I do think that now the masses are joining that their target audience has changed.)

What does the post-PC era mean? (video)


People have been talking about us entering a post-PC era for a while. With the rise of the smartphone and the iPad, it’s finally happening but it and it doesn’t mean that the PC is dead. It simply means that the PC will be the primary device for work while the smartphone will be for computing “in the wild”. The iPad will be the true personal computing device – on...
