So I have a couple of things today.
One is Mashable’s Social Media Day in Michiana: I’m going to be part of the group presenting and there will be a panel of Social Media experts to ask questions too. It’s also free and it’s after work at the awesome LaSalle Grill. Definitely worth checking out.
Here’s what’s gonna happen.
Club LaSalle (3rd Floor LaSalle Grill, @LaSalle_Grill)
115 W. Colfax Ave
South Bend, IN
Wednesday, June 30, 2010
6:15 Guest Speaker – Don Schindler
7:00 Social Media Panel Discussion
Event is free. Appetizers will be provided. A cash bar is available.
Then there’s also this news from PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Global Entertainment and Media Outlook: 2010-2014
Now this is some good stuff. Here’s an excerpt…
Consumer behavior dominant driver of change
Consumer feedback and usage provides the only reliable guide to the commercial viability of products and services, and the global consumer base is being used as a test-bed for new offerings and consumption models. PwC has identified three themes that are expected to emerge from changing consumer behavior and the industry must anticipate and pre-empt the needs and wants of consumers.
What is HTML5 and why should I care?
Unlike my designers and developers who live and breathe this stuff all day long, my focus seems to shift to managing budgets and people.
So when they suggest something that helps me understand what it is that people are talking about all the time, I figure it might be good to pass it along.
I like this graphic because it really showed me what HTML5 was all about. Then oaknd1 showed me apple.com/html5
BTW, you have to use Safari to look it at but it’s worth it.
I couldn’t believe what they could do with searchable text (instead of having to drop text into graphics) and the video portion.
Another reason I love social media. I didn’t actually talk to Jim Gosz about this and ask him about html5. He tweeted it and I followed the link.
I receive a lot of calls/emails about how the agency works within the University of Notre Dame. I was at a conference recently and a lot of people there were interested as well. One email in particular had a lot of great questions and I decided to try and give it some good answers.
From the email:
Who are the people that work at the Agency?
I’ve a got an awesome bunch of guys and gals that make up our team.
A web team with four developers, two designers, one information architect and an interactive director.
A print team with two designers and a print production person part time along with the print director. We’ve also got creative director who oversees creative for both areas as well as our one photographer.
For project management, we have one project manager, one account manager and one scheduler. There’s also an office coordinator.
How does the Agency run?
