With CES 2013 coming to a close over the weekend, the volume of announcements and new product releases rose to a fever pitch as the show came to a close… and even for a fanatic like me the volume of the #CES2013 hashtag (which according to some reports was used over 1.2 million times during the course of the 4 day event. In the interest of making that volume a bit easier for all of you to consume, today’s edition includes a terrific article on the ‘social conversation’ around the event as well as one of the best wrap ups I could find on the Web – courtesy of 9to5Mac.com
One the authors that I follow on a fairly regular basis on the Web is Randy Gage. Randy just published an excellent new book – Risk is the New Safe: The Rules have changed – and is prolific blogger as well… focusing mostly on innovation and disruption. His latest blog posting I've linked to below and would encourage you to read it with a mind towards how some of the disruptions that Randy is predicting in the coming year… may well impact you and your business. While you’re at it, I’d encourage an ongoing visit to Randy’s site… as there are a large number of great marketing insights and techniques I've been able to extract from his writings over time.
Finally, as our +1 for today, I’m always on the prowl for new voices to add to my daily ‘media diet’ (more on that concept in a future edition), and this week ran across a terrific listing on B2BMarketinginsideer.com that sports a great listing of the year’s best B2B bloggers. Covering a wide range of topics and disciplines, I’d certainly encourage you to take the time to review the listing, but just as importantly take the time to read and subscribe to some of these superb thinkers in the coming year. You can rest assured that a number of them will make appearances in our weekly “Buckley’s Best of the Blogosphere” edition as well.
