This week I’m in New York attending ad:tech, an interactive and digital advertising conference. After the first day, my head is spinning with new ideas and inspiration. Today I heard some of the most respected people in the industry discuss consumer generated media, the future of search, dynamic vs. static campaigns, the valuation of engagement, podcast production, the cultural and market effects of mobile media, and on and on. Not to mention – I got to spend a few minutes talking with Ze Frank, host of “the show,” after he participated in the CGM panel discussion. Anyone who knows me knows how much I respect and love that guy…it was an exciting moment for me. On a totally different level of satisfaction, two other celebrities I saw were The Question Mark Guy and Elmo. I’ve posted a few photos after the jump. Huffington Post Founding Partner Jonah Peretti and Ze Frank:
Me, Chad, and Elmo:
I plan on going deeper on many of the topics covered after I come home and have some time to digest. But for now, I’m about to fall asleep while I type, and tomorrow is another day of more special goodness. Stay tuned, this is exciting stuff.
