We're almost through September, and I am wondering where the summer has gone. For me teaching this summer is a special treat, a time to step back and look at the industry, the rush of new Web 2.0 technology and their application, but it also seems to eclipse everything else. I look up and suddenly it is fall.
I learn so much from the students and the speakers. This last class was no exception, except for its size -- 3x the standard attendance. But despite that or perhaps because of it, class energy was high and the discussions lively and heated.
This quarter's speakers included:
. LaSandra Brill, Mgr, Web & Social Media Mktg, Cisco
. Mario Sundar, Community Evangelist, LinkedIn
. Jill Finlayson, Web Marketing Mgr, Skoll Foundation
. Pam Webber, VP Marketing, Widgetbox
. Paul O’Brien, VP Marketing, Zvents
. Giovanni Rodriguez, Chairman, Conversation Group
. Ramit Seth, VP PB Wiki, “I will make you rich blog”
. Justin Smith, author, Facebook Bible
. Jennifer Yip, Director of Operations, Creative Commons
An amazing group of talented and interesting speakers whose presence and presentations added much to the class. Thank you, each and everyone.
Because there were so many students I also received a bumper crop of papers and with the students permission, I am going to post some of the best (below). They represent in my mind, some current best practices. To these and everyone who made up our class, thank you! class will be Winter Quarter and be expanded from 6 sessions to 8 in order to give us more time.
