I am a boardmember of the AJC – Bay Area Chapter. I consider them my good luck charm as during our association: I met Ryan, had two children, got married and adopted “Aaya DOG!” (as my oldest call her.) I have been assisting them on redesigning their website to incorporate new technologies and web2.0 practices. Its been a learning experience on both side, but with the support of the staff we have had traction in several key.
1- Shai Agassi event has turned into a viral marketing campaign with invites sent out via facebook, evite and this blog.
2 – A link to David Harris’s blog now sits on the main page. Hopefully this will help drive traffic to his site. This is a pet peeve of mine: people sending blog posts and website copy in emails. Just please send the link referring people to the right place on the http://www. The page owner, blog owners, advertisers, and people with bursting email boxes will love you.
3 – Jono (my main AJC contact) and I are using a prologue themed blog instead of IM. Otherwise I would have to drive 60 miles one way and pay outrageous garage parking fees, or increase my cell phone plan to the outrageous minutes per month option.
Now we have a long way to go before the site is complete and our work is done, but I just wanted to give everyone at the AJC office a shoutout for getting on the latest and greatest technological bandwagon.
