Part 2: Squeezing 2 Days Into 1 Hour – The Best of Blog Indiana 2011 @ Social Media Breakfast Fort Wayne

Part Two – The second of a  series of posts detailing my impressions of Blog Indiana 2011.

How to Drink From a Fire Hose

One of the best aspects of BIN2011 was the sharing of resources to help make your social media efforts more effective.

Doug Karr’s presentation “40 Tools 40 Slides 40 Minutes” (now updated: 50 Tools 50 Slides 50 Minutes) is an excellent example. Live, it felt like I was drinking from the fire hose. Great information and categorized well, but the fingers couldn’t type fast enough. Extra bonus: Doug shared the presentation as a reference tool on Take a few minutes and pick a couple tools to explore. You’ll find yourself going back and finding new ways to improve your efforts.
