John Simonds on Twitter, blogs, & tags in Analyst Relations

In the last of our RSDC video series I had the chance to talk with John Simonds of IBM Analyst Relations. We spend our time talking about how John uses Web 2.0 tools and concepts to help out with his day-to-day analyst relations. For example, we talk about his use of Twitter several times with a couple of examples of how he and other IBM AR staff have monitored analysts Twitter streams to find things they need help with.

We then discuss blogging, esp. as it relates to Twitter. Check-out some of the photos of John’s from RSDC include “Mr. Black Socks,” and also the video he mentions.

Finally, I ask John about the tags they’ve been coming using for events like ibmrsdc08 for RSDC this year. At the end, I squeak in some therapy for my (personally) vexing issue of two or four character dates in tags – “08” vs. “2008.”

Disclaimer: IBM is a client, paid for T&E to RSDC, and sponsored this video.
