There’s an easy way to get your PR and marketing clients covered on InformationWeek TV: Just bring them to Valley View, our monthly, live Web TV show at 4 p.m. Pacific Time on June 27 at our San Francisco-based studios. At the end of our program, David Berlind and I venture out into the audience and choose two companies at random (we pick a business card out of a fishbowl) to give us their elevator pitch. And, this is a special Google I/O edition of Valley View — Google I/O is the company’s annual developer conference, during which Google typically announces quite a bit of news.

Give Us Your “Elevator Pitch” On InformationWeek Valley View

Fritz Nelson invites tech marketers to give their elevator pitch at a part-party/part-industry showcase event each month. “There’s something about live media that gets my blood flowing. It’s partly the urgency of the moment and the unspoken, but omnipresent notion that there’s no room for error — even though, let’s admit, there’s always error (I usually try to blame someone else, though). I get the same juice whether it’s a live event, like Interop or the InformationWeek 500 conference, or live TV, which we’ve been doing much more of, namely with InformationWeek Valley View, a monthly Web TV broadcast that includes interviews with industry luminaries, product demos, breakdowns of technology at a whiteboard and debates.” Continue Reading →

BYTE is Back

BYTE is back. For those who remember it, that little phrase will likely perk up your ears and straighten your spine. For the better part of 2011 we’ve been building a team, designing and developing a new site, and crafting the kind of content that will remind people of the old BYTE, but also usher […] Continue Reading →

A Bit About BYTE

It’s been quite a year so far for our soft launch of the new BYTE. You remember BYTE, right?

There was never as […] Continue Reading →
