TMC Builds You Online Communities

March 26, 2009

Many people in the communications space have asked me recently what TMC's secret is. After all, we are in the toughest media environment of our lifetimes and we produced our best show ever and have more paying customers online than at virtually any other time in our history.

The answer may lie in a bit of luck and some skill. The lucky part is we built our first online community for a customer about a decade ago.

Bailout Nation

February 18, 2009

What I've learned from the US government - regardless of party...

The more irresponsible you are, the more money you get and the better you do. Sorry - just blowing off steam, I am not sure how much of this we can take. Every person who made a bad decision seems to win the lottery.

Never in my life do I remember the rewards for doing the wrong thing being so great.



The Downward Spiral of Snail Mail

January 28, 2009

As snail mail volume drops off due to the growth of email and perhaps fax, the post office has responded by increasing the postage rates of companies which mail catalogs and magazines. And this in turn continues to help kill off both of these industries which in turn are competing with the web.

I think it has come to realize you can only get so many eggs out of the goose and if it you squeeze too hard, you kill it.

So now the backup strategy is to cut down the number of days in which mail is delivered. This is likely what we will see happening.

And if companies feel this hurts their cash flow, expect them to focus more on automated payment systems which in turn will reduce the number of checks being sent in the mail.

This in turn will lead to more catastrophe for the post office.

Don't say I didn't warn you.









Some Important ITEXPO East 2009 News

January 28, 2009

Here are some links from a recent ITEXPO Show Daily sent to ITEXPO attendees. It doesn't live online yet so I can't post a link. (Show daily 1, 2) Instead I cut and pasted some of the more important parts with the important links and videos borrowed from the ITEXPO home page.

Keep reading to the end and be sure you are at the show to potentially win the Jeep (you must be present to win). In this economy I am not aware of too many places you can win a car -- just because you showed up.
