Tyrone Rubin thinks and learns

The wonder-minds of the Social Media space dish it out

Posted in Business, Internet, Technology by Tyrone Rubin on March 4, 2010

This morning I was lucky to find out, from a tweet from Robert Scoble, that these talks were online. As mentioned in previous posts, I absolutely love video lectures. I listen to numerous podcasts, listen to a plethora of audio content, read countless blogs but my favourite treat is online video lectures, talks and content. It makes learning a fun experience for me, as I get to watch the person dishing out the goods, talking the talk. Doing his or her thang, first hand. First prize would obviously be to be in the actual presence of the lecturer or speaker but watching the person online is pretty much second best. These four talks are a must watch for any internet entrepreneur. Social media is the most important part of online business. In fact, social media, is online business as its most fundamental. Social being the people and media being the platform to the people. On the subject of social media and the internet as a tool for business I can ramble on for hours but instead I will rather let the best in the business dish it out, in a very short and informed way. Thanks so Stanford and the people involved.

‘ This Discusion was part of the Stanford GSB marketing course, the Power of Social Technology (Dr. Jennifer Aaker). A panel of experts, including Robert Scoble, MC Hammer, and Loic LeMeur, discussed how social media can build successful brands.’
