  • 4. WHERETHERE IS SMOKETHERE IS FIRE.WHERETHERE IS AN EXPLOSION,THERE IS A CRATER. • The Mainstream media we grew up with is not dying, it’s in the crater. • Warren Buffett reads 5 newspapers a day, but wouldn’t invest in any of them for any price. (paidcontent.org, May 09). • In 2008, the internet surpassed newspapers as mainstream America’s top source for news (Gallup, Dec. 08) • Billionaire David Geffen wants to buy NYTIMES and run as a not for profit.Translation: business model not sustainable! Monday, May 18, 2009
  • 5. SOCIAL WEBTECHNOLOGIES ARETHETOOLS, NOTTHE SHED • The Web connects people.That’s what it does. Movements take connected people and make change (Seth Godin,Tribes). Get connected, and start a movement for your destination. • The tools will change, but you can’t wait any longer to see if Twitter will fizzle out. Evolve your tactics as the tools change. • Start building the shed! Have an over-arching listening/ connecting strategy and using current tools, and look for new ones to emerge. Monday, May 18, 2009
  • 6. TACTICS FORTOURISM: TWITTER • Listen. Realtime search: monitor what people are saying about you. Respond to actual realtime feedback. Share content. • Use it as an outpost for content distribution: new photos? Tweet it. New blog post?Tweet it. New event?Tweet it. • Twitter is not a strategy. It’s a tool and a tactic. Use it to support broader Content-building, PR, and Listening strategies. • Get familiar withTwitter.com, then move to a desktop client for easier monitoring, searching, managing multi accounts. Monday, May 18, 2009
  • 7. TACTICS FORTOURISM: BLOGS • A blog is simply a web publishing platform allowing easy content creation. • 28 million people have blogs they update at least once a month (about 14% of U.S. population). • 97 million people read blogs at least once a month (about 48% of U.S. population) • Blogs are now considered mainstream media • Search Engines (Google) love blogs: recency of content Monday, May 18, 2009
  • 8. TACTICS FORTOURISM: IPHONE AND MOBILE • We’re not talking about phones, we’re talking about the mobile web. • There are 40,000 iPhone Apps available for download. TRAVEL is the #6 category in iTunes App Store, yet it makes up less than 6% of all Apps. Create something useful. Clearly there is space. • The chokepoint for mobile web was the bandwidth, not the device.WiFi and 3G have opened up the pipes. Monday, May 18, 2009
  • 9. RESOURCES • http://www.newspaperdeathwatch.com • http://twitter.com/themediaisdying • Some of our favorite desktop clients: DestroyTwitter, Seesmic Desktop (still in Beta), Tweetdeck.Try Tweetie For the iPhone. If you use iGoogle as your homepage, try a nice little gadget calledTwitterGadget. • Free whitepaper on iPhone usage and iPhone apps: http://welikebig.com/static/downloads/Whitepaper_iPhone_Apps.pdf • Follow @Motorad666, @eric_hoffman, @pcski onTwitter • Use theTwitter hashtag #UTC09 to go back and review the timeline of tweets about this conference.
