Mplanet Blogosphere Roundup

Doing a Google Blog Search on Mplanet shows that the blogosphere is really starting to eliminate the need for mainstream business journalism. A careful blog surfer can pick up good commentary on practically all of the large sessions, including photographs... even photographs of the lunch served on the first day. It turns out there were probably 5 or 6 people in every room that were reporting on every word that was said at the conference. It's kind of scary when you think about it.

Here is a small sampling of blog posts on MPlanet. Small Business Branding has the feel of a professional journalist, even to the point of photographing the lunch the guy had. It turns out that Small Business Branding was invited to cover the event for free by the AMA--he flew from Australia. Josh Hallett mentions his favorite sessions as the Nokia, Nintendo and Sony Panel and the Longtail discussion. This detailed post goes into the Succeeding in a New World of Media panel. He also gives a good summary of Palmisano's Speech on Globalization.

Magnosticism covers Dennis Dunlap's opening speech with the post Never a Better Time to be a Marketer. Ann Handley at MarketingProfs Daily Fix has a good summary of some of the bloggers at the event along with a good recap of the first day here. Last but not least, Eric Kintz covers his own session on ROMI along with some other coverage of the event here.
