As social media has been catching on and commanding mainstream attention, as legions of folks started following the tweeting Oprah and Ashton Kutcher, businesses have started to adopt social media into their marketing, PR and operations mix. Because social media is not a silo, but rather cuts across multiple organizational silos and departments (if that’s […]

Consumers have many shopping options, and retailers are starting to realize that. Brick and mortar retailers (well, at least some of them) are working hard to stay relevant and compete with more efficient and ubiquitous online retailers, and now that social media and realtime communications have blown conventional fashion and retail secrecy to pieces, the […]

The job description of a community manager has evolved, and the jury is still out on the “official” description. Some companies consider community management closer to moderation, the more traditional sense of the word. This makes a lot of sense for companies who are building and nurturing their own vibrant communities. However, if you are […]

Last Wednesday, Macala Wright Lee, Crosby Noricks and myself were amazingly lucky to share our passion for blending fashion and technology during our fashion and retail panel during Jeff Pulver‘s 140 Conference. The major issues we tried to tackle (as much as possible to do in 10 minutes) were: innovation in social sites and applications, […]

How memorable are you?

Last Sunday night, I went shopping for two airline […]

Twitter and Otaku

14, Jun 2009

I wrote about the state of otaku and the near-fanaticism that some products, brands and product categories inspire. Seems that my favorite tool Twitter (including applications within its ecosystem) had produced quite a bit of otaku within its lead users.
