Getting Social with CIMA

Wanted to share the highlights from last night's CIMA (Chicago Interactive Marketing Association) event on Social Media.

Copping out again by just cutting and pasting my Twitterstream rather than cultivating these thoughts into an actual blog post. I do think it's more hard hitting this way. But I worry about the what happens when Twitter becomes more pervasive (right now I think it's only us marketing types using it) and sharing quick slugs out of context becomes the norm. We've already become an ADD-riddled sound-byte culture (watched the news or picked up a People magazine lately) and this type of communication will only perpetuate that.

Remember to read the stream bottom up to get the chronology -- if not the context...

2 more book reco's. These from Brad Keown of Facebook. Meatball Sunday by Seth Godin and Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky (sp?) from TwitterBerry
