Yahoo! annouces the lauch of the Yahoo! Web Analytics Consultant Network (YWACN)

Yahoo! just announced the launch of the Yahoo! Web Analytics Consultant Network (YWACN) which will replace the good old IndexTools Partner Program. It’s great and exciting to that Yahoo! is moving and that Dennis and his team in the US and Hungary are still alive and kicking.  I am looking forward seeing the latest updates on the system and actually also reading the book Dennis Mortensen wrote onWeb Analytics. Met Dennis at the SES NY at the Yahoo! stand and he was very excited about the book and knowing him the quality of it will be great.

Twitter is a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time.

Yes and so? I have been following the Twitter phenomenon and I must say I have no understanding of what the cool is all about? I am sorry, I will be using it further but I have witnessed a group of people just loose them self’s in twittering. I know that it is the information age, but is there nothing that is not worth mentioning? If Facebook is a time killer, man Twitter goes far beyond that.

And now Facebook has something called Tweeter it’s a Twitter Interface that allows you to post new tweets through Facebook, automatically update your status whenever you tweet, from anywhere. Imaging that!

Okay I might be little to gloomy here but I am still not seeing the real advantage of Twitter over Facebook or for that matter MSN Messanger, but then again I am not Twittering all day in and out as some of my friends seem to be doing. Phfeffff!!!

There are not many that did predict the success of Twitter and I must ask what is next? We write only every other word in a sentence or instead
of writing we blog by choosing pictures only?

I think it’s time we step back a little

Speaking at the London SMX

One of my favourite conference, the SMX London, will be held on the 18th and the 19th of May. I have been offered to speak on the Brand & Reputation Management Strategies session with Mel Carson, adCenter Community Manager – Europe, Microsoft and Mikkel deMib Svendsen, Creative Director, deMib.com. Both great guy’s. The conference is

Session description: “With the proliferation of blogs, social media and other “consumer generated content” sites it’s getting more challenging for organizations to manage perceptions about their products and services. How can you respond to negative opinions, much less find them? How can you correct misleading information on sites you don’t control-including search result pages? Learn how to “take back the web” in this session.”

You can find a great summary of last years conference at the DataDial Blog and a Video Round-up at You Tube. Not sure that the Video does the conference full justice but at least some climbs into what is going on.

On my way back from a really successful SES in NY
