Sometimes, a link says more than I could ever say. Here are some fragrant little buds I’ve found recently, courtesy of ma.gnolia.
Fast Company features I Want Sandy
“Send a message to Sandy, and she’ll remind you in a daily digest, in a text message, or as an event on your calendar. Using e-mail, SMS, Twitter, or Jott, you can set up and receive reminders for appointments, contacts, lists, and random information. And, true to her human-like presence on the site, ‘Sandy’ speaks and understands plain English — just like a real personal assistant.”
Corporate Blogging Tips at Fast Wonder Blog
Dawn Foster writes, “I think we are finally moving past the era where people thought of blogs as a consumer phenomenon, where discussions focused on kids, pets, weekend excursions, and other personal topics rather than serious corporate content. Now most companies are past the question of should we blog and on to the discussion of how to write more effective corporate blogs.”
Jive Software attracts design talent
Oh my. Chris Kalani, David Carroll, and Josh Pyles are all doing work for the Jive Software design department? Stand back.
SplashCast redesigns, repositions to focus on big media
Alex Williams writes, “The new look for SplashCast, and the language / positioning behind it, has finally caught up to our business focus on media companies, agencies, and brands. The site now supports our strong value propositions for online marketers. In addition, the SplashCast blog will be tended to more diligently moving forward (we miss you Marshall), but with a focus specifically on social marketing.”
Bend Blogger Meetup Followup
Jake Ortman writes, “Amazingly enough, the local blogger meetup was a huge success. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, and when I got there (late, like I said), I was floored by the sheer amount of people there. I was expecting a few, not the 30 or so that were there.”
