For anyone who has been following my writing career since the beginning (i.e. me, maybe my mom….and that’s about it), there were some exciting developments last week. I covered a big advertising and technology conference in San Francisco called ad:tech for AllVoices.com, a citizen-journalist rag thing.
Anyhoo, it was a ton of fun and I would like to think I did a good job. I saw some mind-blowing stuff, like augmented reality and HTML5. It also drove me to join Cowbird (a flash fiction community, sort of), Turntable.fm (an online night club) and Pinterest (I know what a Pinterest is now). Look for updates later on how to find me on all those things.
If you are interested in reading my pieces, the general ad:tech coverage site is here. You can find all of articles right conveniently right here. Some of my faves include an interview with Gravity Jack–an AR developer, Occupy Madison Avenue, and a piece on the next steps in digital innovation. My biggest hit so far, with 11,000 views and counting, is a piece on integrating marketing strategies (a little drier, but hey, I’ll take the eyeballs).
Read on, and come back here for all sorts of new information on Barry Eitel.
