What do you care about?

Posted by Suw Charman-Anderson

Whilst we were in San Francisco, Steph Booth and I recorded this episode of our occasional podcast/videoblog, Fresh Lime Soda. We talk about defining and describing what we do, and how that overlaps with what we care about.


Full show notes on the original post.

Social Tools for Business Use

Posted by Suw Charman-Anderson

I’m at Dave Gurteen’s conference today, talking about social software and Web 2.0. It has, as Dave’s last social tools conference was, been attended by some really interesting people. I’ve had some great conversations during the breaks which is always fun.

No live blogging today, but then, I don’t really need to because they are recording both audio and video, and the audio at least is up online already on the Focusbiz website. They have a number of pre-conference interviews up, including one with me, as well as the audio from the sessions - mine was called ‘The Beauty of Web 2.0: Tools that get out of your way‘. Do have a listen and let me know what you think.
