I started the day by boring everyone to tears with close to THREE HOURS of research, data, and analysis of how Canadians use music and what else is going in the competitive landscape around digital music. Seriously – by the end of it, people were begging for mercy. Lesson learned. Next time, only TWO HOURS of research, data, and analysis…
We had Ryan Holmes, the CEO of Hootsuite, come and talk to us about how they started and grew their Vancouver-based Twitter client into a world leader. Dave Olson from Hootsuite then gave us all a power-used tutorial which blew a lot of our minds, learning things we had no idea we could do.
We talked about our SECRET PROJECT. (I’m sorry – I would want to reach into cyberspace and punch me in the throat after seeing that I capitalized and bolded SECRET PROJECT. I am an arse.)
We gave everyone new CBC Radio 3 t-shirts! (Coming soon to trivia contests and other prizing opportunities very soon :-) )
And that’s it. I can only speak for myself, but it was awesome.
We’re so lucky to have such a great team here at CBC Radio 3, so it really is a blast to have everyone together in the same room at the same time. There were many, many terrific ideas generated and thoughtful insights into problems offered. And there were a lot of laughs, too.
Anything else you’d like to know? Ask about anything – EXCEPT for the SECRET PROJECT…
(I hope this is exciting like LOST secrets, and not annoying like M. Night Shyamalan secrets)
