Skype’s blogger-in-chief and Robert Scoble talk shop

10 07 2009

Nice video interview here conducted by Renee Blodgett with Robert Scoble and Skype’s blogger-in-chief Peter Parkes earlier this week during the Travelling Geeks TweetUp on 5 July.

It’s definitely worth watching, and in it Peter shares his thoughts how blogging has changed over the years and how Skype is using social media (Blogging, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) in Europe and the rest of the world to engage directly with their customers.

I missed but Travelling Geeks, but here’s what it was all about:

The mission of Traveling Geeks is to collaborate with technology innovators and influencers in various regions of the world, then share what we’ve learned through blogging, video, podcasts, social media tools and meet-ups.

Text 100 Blogger Survey on FIR

8 07 2009

fir_100x100Throughout April and May this year Text 100 conducted a survey across 21 countries and received feedback from 449 bloggers about how they like being contacted, the content they find useful, how much time they spend blogging and a variety of other topics. It was a great process to be a part of and on 25 June we released the results publicly.

This morning Neville Hobson posted the details of an FIR Interview that took place with Jeremy Woolf, Text 100’s SVP and global social media lead, about the results of our survey.

This interview was conducted by FIR Asia Correspondent Michael Netzley, and in it Jeremy discusses the results and their implications for the profession. It’s definitely worth a listen.

If podcasts aren’t your thing, then you can download the decks on Scribd and Slideshare, or check it out below.

I have also jotted down some of my thoughts about the survey results elsewhere on Text 100’s hyperTEXT London blog.
