with their traditional public relations and communications business
structures will not survive the fast-approaching social media avalanche. The
remaining 30% that need to reinvent their position real fast in their newly
morphed industry will prosper, compared to where they were and what they were
For publicly traded companies, current rules dictate that information can be
made public by a press release or by a telephone conference call but not
simply on a website. Ninety percent of today's PR firms are still in business
simply because of this single rule.
For the first time three years ago, in 2006, Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan
Schwartz asked the SEC to change this rule. Well, the new White House is
already posting the President's weekly address... (more)

Gartner analysts today highlighted the top 10 technologies and trends that
will be strategic for most organizations in 2010. Gartner defines a strategic
technology as one with the potential for significant impact on the enterprise
in the next three years. Factors that denote significant impact include a
high potential for disruption to IT or the business, the need for a major
dollar investment, or the risk of being late to adopt.
"These technologies impact the organization's long-term plans, programs and
initiatives. They may be strategic because they have matured to broad market
use or because they enable strategic advantage from early adoption.
"Companies should factor the top 10 technologies into their strategic
planning process by asking key questions and making deliberate decisions
about them during the next two years," said David... (more)

I must confess I am very new to Ulitzer as an online channel of social
communication media. But I am delighted about its raison d'être.
However, I cannot but ask these questions: Is Ulitzer the beginning of a new
trend or the ultimate death of journalism?
Or is it the glorification of e-journalism?
The realization of new journalism practice in the age of Web services and
These series of questions are being answered everyday as the new social media
moguls and barons and baronesses of the Internet Media launched another

Social Media on Ulitzer
I use all of these social media tools and although they haven't put me on my
own island in the Caribbean yet, I'm very pleased with the combined results.
1. Twitter – It’s the fastest way to share that you have created
something of value. As a bonus, Tweetdeck or CoTweet are good ways to manage
your Twitter efforts and research. Huge audience with lots of active
participants. There are a few shady characters on Twitter but just like being
at Grand Central Station, you just step aside and keep moving. It doesn't
mean you eschew the benefit. Micro-blogging is probably here to stay so it's
a good idea to get up on good habits regardless of what future tools look
2. Linked In – It’s the professional network standard where people will
find you. A terrific way to maintain knowledge of what former colleagues are
doing now. You can also join gr... (more)

if there was yet hope for me.
I am a technology blogger on the subject of mobile computing strategies. As
I was doing research I came across the author Ian Thain, a fellow mobile
computing blogger, who had a very professional website on Ulitzer
Professional envy motivated me to investigate this thing called Ulitzer.
Ian's website looked like he had spent a great deal of time and money on it -
all things I am short on.

an expensive industry portal with colorful graphics, animation and industry
It had tabs that filtered articles, by most popular, by date, etc. I have
blogged for over 5 years so... (more)
