A Postcard from Topaz Partners’ Adam Zand
SNCR Day 2 - PM Sessions
The first talk I attended after lunch was given by Katie Paine from KDPaine & Partners, which focused on how to measure social media. Katie offered a pretty complete framework for measurement of social media that included: Defining goals Priorit...

Oh Adam, we all know that the content on Strumpette is relevant, insightful, and necessary...but let's not start spreading gossip and rumors....after all, if it were true, you would have broken the cardinal rule of Vegas ethics. Besides, if it weren't for pushing back, things would never move forward.
And in regards to not going up to the beautiful women of Las Vegas to get us in to Tao, well, I only can say thank you for writing that so it appears on the Web. You see honey, I was a good boy out there!
But, truth be told, Adam is an awesome drinking pal and an even better rebel rouser. He kept things hot during the New Comm Forum....and he is more than capable of handling the ladies himself - as obviously proven by his letter to Strumpette.
"If it weren't for pushing back, things would never move forward."
Crotchal region? I think that is the name of a new band.
And I was just having that same discussion over BizWire and PR Newswire's costs for tagging. Hey, I love the Biz Wire folks, but the cost to simply tag a release is way too high. Like 5 years ago when all the new Intenet wire services came out, someone is going to come up with cheap ways to do this. Sure, there are ways to do it yourself, but I would much rather have it automated as part of a wire service I already trust and use. Just too expensive right now.
And I know Adam Crispin Zand. He needs no help meeting women because he can dance and loves Madonna.
Wow, Adam. You really know how to light up a conference and a blog post.
And I really don't want to know what the Happy Ending reference is to...
Needless to say (but I'll comment anyway), this is the proudest day of my non-client-related PR career. *Strumpette*, you like me, you really like me.
The post yielded such a lukewarm reception that I've decided to work on more content for the site. More details to come as my budding rap star brother NIZ (www.kosherhiphop.com) is looking over the offer shite; oops, I mean sheet.
In the meantime, a quick shout out to those wondering about Strumpette’s photo editor – that scandalous bedroom image is all theirs, not from my extensive Google collection. Although the room is remarkably similar to my "bungalow" at soon-to be-demolished Summer Bay Resorts.
It got a chuckle and later cringe from me, but I was reminded today about how much damage a little blog post can do ;-]. To partially rectify that, I’m sharing a video (http://www.sportinsociety.org/vpd/mvp_video.php) representing a PR initiative I worked on a decade ago. The important Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University changes a lot of folks' attitudes, and hopefully actions, on the issues of preventing men’s violence against women.
