You’ve already heard about what a wonderful event it was, from so very many people. And I told you of how it was one of those OMG-it-finally-happened moments for me. Frankly, I haven’t written a wrap-up post because everyone else beat me to the punch.
I have a surprise/gift for you as far as that goes, but that’s at the end of the post. Please don’t cheat by skipping to the end!
But then, the other day I was reading Mark Schaeffer’s recent and most excellent post about the online-offline intersection at its best. He related an anecdote about seeing Ian Cleary (who is wonderful!) at SMMWorld:

“At the recent Social Media Marketing World event, I ran into Ian and asked him how many sessions he had attended and he said ‘none.’ At first I was surprised.
That’s what Lea Ann of Standing Dog said this past week as we were winding down the bi-weekly #measurePR chat, and it was such a great quote that I had to use it to kick off the recap post, as well as in the headline.
Die Hard and squirrels!

So, yes, it was a really fun chat. They usually are, but there was something in the air last week. Perhaps it was relief that YouTube wasn’t really shutting down (I thought that was a pretty lame attempt at an April Fool’s joke, Gmail Blue was much better… but what do I know), perhaps it was giddiness at being done with one’s taxes (are you done with yours?)… but whatever it was, it led to an extremely fun and engaged conversation.Events, Measurement, MeasurePR, Shonali Burke | Tags: #measurepr, affect pr, b2b pr measurement, b2c pr measurement, sandra fathi | Comments (19)
About a month ago I told you of my xPotomac experience, and we had a pretty engaged conversation around civility in the digital age.
I’m not here to rekindle that conversation, but I’m thrilled to tell you that all the speaker videos from xPotomac are now (drum roll, please) live!
The video quality is really good; Vocus, which provided the videography services, did an excellent job not just of filming but of editing them – so thank you, Vocus!
Geoff Livingston has done a great job of summarizing all the videos here, so you can watch them all from there. And mine is below.
