There were cameras galore at the Midwest Moms Brands & Bloggers Summit. We counted 8 and a half at our table since one was a very small camera. MJ Tam (left), editor of Chicagonista.com, organized last Saturday's conference.
Some memorable quotes include "I have no vision. I really don't bother
with ideas. I am very good at cutting through bullshit."
The Craigslist customer service rep (that's his real title) is now
focusing on Craigconnects.org - "Connecting the World for the Common
Good" . The first campaign focused on helping veterans and military

transparency in non-profits.
Chicago Sun-Times yesterday at Chicago TechWeek. She talked about top
reasons why women blog: 1) express myself 2) have fun 3) connect with
people like me. She talked about clients such as Procter & Gamble and
PepsiCo want to authentically connect with bloggers and create more
virality. She also talked about the democratization of media and the
wisdom of crowds.
