Anthony Edwards Gets #SmallBizCool

December 15th, 2009 :: Michael Dougherty

This is the final installment of #SmallBizCool from BlogWorldExpo 2009 for me and one that I am most proud of. Supporing worth while charities is something I’ve always been a big fan of. And when you find that a celebrity you like feels the same way…it is something magical. Rather than go into greater detail, let’s let Anthony Edwards himself explain why charity is so important and how he sees the new media landscape changing to better help support them.

Learn more about Anthony’s chosen charity Shoe 4 Africa or you can follow Anthony on Twitter @AnthonyEdwards.

It’s time for another awesome installment of #SmallBizCool from the floors of BlogWorldExpo 2009. If you haven’t had a chance to, check out Jill Foster’s #SmallBizCool interviews over at WomenGrowBusiess.

One of the most memorable moments, for me at least, was Kevin Pollak’s part of the final keynote for the Expo. His insight into how social media has changed the landscape of media is insightful. Here he talks a little about why he thinks social media is cool.

December 1st, 2009 :: Michael Dougherty

I’m really excited to bring you another #SmallBizCool, thought up by the great Jill Foster of WomenGrowBusiness, from the floor of BlogWorldExpo 2009. I met so many great people there, but I really got a great interview Entertainment Editor of BlogCritics and Technorai, Dawn Olsen. Dawn and I shared a lot of laughs, but she gave a great insight into what BlogCritics is all about and a little into what’s new with Technorati.

BlogWordExpo 2009: CNN’s Don Lemon Gets SmallBizCool!

October 29th, 2009 :: Michael Dougherty

It’s time for another awesome installment of #SmallBizCool from the sunny floors of BlogWorldExpo 2009. If you haven’t had a chance to, check out Jill Foster’s #SmallBizCool interviews over at WomenGrowBusiess.

BlogWorldExpo 2009 was filled with so many awesome exibitors, speakers and panels. One of the best moments, for me at least, was CNN’s Don Lemon as part of the opening keynote for Friday on “The Death and Rebirth of Journalism”. His insight into the evolution, not the death, of traditional media gave a lot of us a reason to think. Don was kind enough to take a few minutes, after that keynote, to explain why social media is cool to him.

Learn more about Don on CNN or you can follow Don on Twitter @donlemoncnn.
