This year I and my BlissPoint marketing team(www.blisspoint.us) will be posting and tracking activities at BrainShare on Twitter.
First, what is Twitter. It is a like a one to many chat session. You, the person doing the twitter, post a comment. Anyone who is following your account gets immediate updates to what you just posted. What is nice is that the updated text can be sent straight to your phone.
For example. It is Saturday evening before BrainShare. You just arrived and you don't know what is happening. You are subscribed to www.twitter.com/brainshare08.
Suddenly you receive a text message. Party at the Shilo for GroupWise guys. Everybody welcome.
So, off you go to the Shilo Inn and join the party.
Or, Danita is giving a really good presentation on Bonsai. I would send out a notice that people should come to her session. Everyone following me on twitter would be alerted automatically.
It is something worth giving a try.
