Let's have a show of hands: Who attended last week's virtual Digital Marketing World?
I know a lot of you did, and thanks for coming. It was an amazing event (and don't worry, if you missed the September 16th event, the whole thing is still available On Demand).
One of my favorite sessions was the keynote with Tina Brown. Prior to last Wednesday's event, I got a direct message on Twitter in which someone asked me, "What does Tina Brown have to say to marketers?" The answer is, "Actually, plenty!"
Tina isn't a marketer, of course. She's an editor, publisher, and writer. Most recently, she founded The Daily Beast.com, an online news source.
