So I am just now updating my LinkedIn Profile to reflect the fact that I am looking for client’s and looking for opportunities to join an extraordinary team. If you have some suggestions for me as to what sort of position I should take and/or which company I should really work for, I would love to hear them…
But I came across this job posting, which I just had to share with you. They are anonymous (hopefully not personal friends, but they might be) and offering equity to someone who understands ‘tagsite linking’ and can deliver 1M+ users in the first week… I really did not think there was much of a bubble, and there isn’t, but there sure is a lot of delusional entrepreneurs out there! I don’t think this team is one I would like to join, perhaps it is good for you though?
Marketing advisor/CMO must have personally headed the marketing effort for one or more successful Web 2.0 companies. Deep knowledge of the most effective tagsite linking methodologies, web related press generation, and viral user accumulation is key. The ability to add 1M+ new registered users to our site during the first week of your tenure with would be considered a plus.
Another job I just saw was looking for 5 years of Web 2.0 and/or Social Media experience… Ah, that brings back the memories of the large corporations looking for 10+ years of Java development experience back in 1998 when Java was but an infant.

Well, it’s been a tough couple of weeks, so this is going to be pretty good to get away for a couple of days with my best friend and a few other buddies (unsure who to invite really, so if you don’t hear from me on this don’t be offended). In fact, I will be heading to Vegas shortly after facilitating a workshop with FAST Search down in Los Angeles on the Future of Media June 14 (you should come to the conversation if you are in LA for Digital Hollywood, details will be posted again shortly after they are updated).
I was really pushing back on my buddies about not doing a bachelor party since it is near the wedding date, and I am getting worried about money etc… but seeing that we can have a fun time in Las Vegas with a few friends that is not all centered around gambling and sinning makes it much more interesting for me. In fact, seeing Roger Waters was playing there the weekend we spoke about going down was the real clincher for me, and for my buddy Scott. I last saw Waters play when I lived in DC back in 1999, with Scott, my big brother Zez and our buddy Beeber. That was one crazy night after a great day of golf, a BBQ and a limo to and from the show. If you are going to be in Vegas and want to see the show, I recommend you get some tickets from StubHub right away (though he is playing Oakland right afterwards if you aren’t in Vegas).
Of course, we can still go out afterwards and have a great time running around the city. I don’t gamble much, though do enjoy it occasionally – I am really looking forward to getting some golf in though as I have not had much chance to golf this past year as I would like – maybe do dinner at Joe’s Stone Crabs or Mortons. One thing is sure, it won’t be as crazy as that night we went to the MGM after Community 2.0 with Carfi, LeFever and Jake… Wish I could get my grandfather to come to Vegas or the Wedding to join us, but he won’t travel any more, just plain stubborn about it really… so instead it will be me and my best friend Scott and hopefully a few other good friends who can afford to travel and want to get away for a guy’s weekend.
For a while, I was thinking about doing something bigger like a BachelorCamp, but quickly realized I had no time or energy to put something together like that – no matter how much fun it would be – better off being with a handful of good close friends and making some new memories to last a lifetime…
Talking about Social Media and Social Media Club, hopefully a bit about the “Listen. Join. Start.” work we are doing for the Social Media Workshop too… From my few conversations with Ray and listening to a few of the archived shows you can download, Ray is a really sharp guy and has a great team working with him on his show. (I wish I could get a producer like Stacey!)
So tune in tomorrow, or if you can’t be there live, go back and download the podcast – I love this stuff and can’t wait to do more of it…
