Web2.0 Nets Me 50 Bucks

June 24, 2008

This is a quick post while I’m on vacation. I probably should post more than once a month anyway…

Went to a conference last week and learned about leveraging Web2.0 technologies to better grow visibility of our company and find more solid employees. It was interesting, and gave me a lot of ideas that I’ll have to flesh out for the next month. At one point in the discussion we had a “Stand up until something on the list doesn’t apply to you” activity, covering things such as blogging, forum posts, putting videos on the youtube, etc. Well halfway through I was the only person standing, and pretty sure I was the youngest person there by a good 15 years, my cohort excluded.

Apparently it was one of the first times someone made it through the whole activity, and the speaker gave me 50 bucks. I was stoked. Totally going to spend it on a nice steak dinner.

And, to link it to work somewhat, check out the homepage. The title was a placeholder until our graphic design master threw the 60’s-style background up there.
