Sign in to queue


Marty Collins is senior marketing manager with the solution architecture group responsible for and She wanted to interview me about the relationship between blogs and technical marketing, and I wanted to hear her thoughts on the same subject, so we wound up interviewing each other.

She was interested to hear my take on how professionals -- not only in the field of software, but also much more broadly -- can and should use blogs to communicate their public agendas.

I was fascinated to hear from her about an upcoming marketing initiative to monitor blog discussions and address questions and concerns by injecting responses directly into blog comments. It's a radical but, I think, clueful strategy for 21st-century marketers.
