For 2009, MSP Films takes an original look at the sport of skiing. All of the skiers in the film--park rat or big mountain charger--share a common bond: the overwhelming desires to ski. Each person finds stoke in his own unique way, whether it be a double cork 1260, a deep turn on a storm day or ripping a giant AK line. Skiing is an incredibly diverse sport that offers it all.
Boot Camp Digital founder Krista Neher came to Cincinnati from Toronto in 2005 after being transferred here by Procter & Gamble for her finance and marketing job. A few years later, she left the company to become VP of Marketing for local internet startup Photrade.com. That company was eventually sold and Neher lost her job, leaving her unsure about what she wanted to pursue. "After the company was sold I didn't know what I wanted to do next. I'd gotten a few local job offers, but I turned them down because I needed some time to think about it," Neher, who lives in Over-the-Rhine, said. In the meantime Neher devoted her time blogging about a new passion: social media on The Marketess .
From PRWeek , "Required reading - a definitive guide to PR blogs" by Sheelagh Doyle... Everybody has an opinion. Social media provides an unrivaled avenue to share it with the world.

I'm ever so sorry for putting this tutorial off for so long! Alas, I was nudged into action by a reader who had been patiently waiting for this since my first mushroom shelf post back in December (yikes! I'm so sorry!) Please accept my most sincere apologies and lets do just jump right into this! One's active participation in this tutorial is rather dependent on access to suitable mushroom specimens, and while I regret that I'm unable to offer any specific advice on where to go looking, do just keep a keen eye in the trees (up and down the trunks, specifically) the next time you are out on a ramble through a forested area, and your diligence may well be rewarded. The correct sort of mushroom (there are actually a handful of different varieties that work) is typically espied growing from the trunks of trees that appear ill of health, or perhaps even dead, however there are never any guarantees of finding the mushrooms.
With or without an official nightclub, the experience that these hotels offer is essentially about human contact. “It’s the single thing that can’t be duplicated on the Internet,” says MacPherson. “Social networking tries to, but it’s not the same thing.
Everyone has a good digital camera these days. Strobist teaches you how to be a good photographer. The project of a former photojournalist, Strobist explains techniques beyond point and shoot, with an emphasis on lighting on the cheap. Think cinematic-type images on a film-school budget.

New Media Business Models
Unnoticed by almost no-one, the startup financing landscape has been transformed: a combination of ease of entry, lower capital requirements, failing incumbent venture capital (VC) firms, and general fervor has driven the emergence of a host of new “super-seed” firms. These small-ish outfits — usually running less than $20m — specialize in seeding a bazillion companies, following on in very few, and generally trying to be fast-moving and networked. Now, however, the super-seed crash is coming. We have silly numbers of companies being seeded — I had someone at a well-known, larger venture fund tell me yesterday in San Francisco that they were seeing dozens of Series A-seeking newly angel-funded companies a week.
