I forgot to mention the most valuable piece of information I picked up at the EconSM Conference.
No it wasn’t how to monetize social media.
It was what to do in NYC. Seth Goldstein, CEO of Social Media, mentioned on a panel that he had sent one of his employees a long email on what he should do during his upcoming visit to NYC. Seth knows how to live the good life, so I followed up with him afterwards and he agreed to share his NYC must-see list with VCMike:
