Thanks to Innotech and WebVisions for sponsoring Silicon Florist

I’ve been a bit remiss on thanking Silicon Florist’s sponsors. And they happen to be two great events, one coming up this week and one coming up in May. In terms of bang for your buck, they’ve got a lot to offer. And I’m not just saying that because they’re sponsors. Well, not entirely.

Got some time this week? Head over to Innotech on April 21. Interested in the future of the Web? Think about attending WebVisions, May 25-27. Read More

Why? Because if you’re good enough and smart enough and the judges like you, you could take the stage and go home with a robot during WebVisions, this year. Read More

Hey social media! Turn that frown… err world upside down

To employ on old phrase, you’d have to have been living under a rock the past month or so not to recognize the impact of social media. From unrest in the Middle East to earthquakes in Japan, social media outlets have provided both the outlet for news and the platform for thousands of opinions and voices of support.

In many ways, the world is upside down. And social media made it that way. Empowering individuals and giving them the means to communicate on an international scale. And the folks at WebVisions would like to take some time to discuss that. Even if their conference is still a month or two off. Read More

But what does this mean for the world of media? And how is changing the business of media?
