WordCamp MSP 2010

Had a great time at WordCamp MSP on 13 November and I’m working to summarize what I thought were the most important things I learned.  But I’d like to just thank everyone I met and open up a post for comments.  Any feedback?

MediaHare Goals

Welcome to MediaHare!  This is my new site for integrated marketing solutions.  I’m going to be concentrating on a few areas that I think are often neglected in the usual chatter about social media, specifically:
