John Battelle is an interesting guy: the author of The Search, an excellent book on Google and its predecessors and rivals; the proprietor of the indispensable Searchblog, one of the sites that inspired me to blog; the coproducer and cohost of the Web 2.0 Summit and Web 2.0 Expo conferences; the founder of the old original Industry Standard and one of the first editors at Wired before that; and the founder, chairman, and CEO of Federated Media, the company that sells advertising and other marketing programs for scads of blogs, one of which is–full disclosure!–Technologizer.
He’s also being interviewed on Thursday, April 29th at 4pm ET in a live Webcast. The topic: “New Marketing in the New Normal.”
As with earlier Webcasts in this series, I’ve been invited to watch and tweet my thoughts as I do. You can do the same if you like–the Webcast interface has a built-in Twitter interface. And if you have any questions for John right now, you can leave them here as comments (or tweet them, using the hashtag #HPIO). We’ll round them up for the event.
(Further full disclosure: The Webcast is sponsored by HP and hosted at its site–hence the @HPIO hashtag. Photo of John Battelle by me, taken at last week’s Chirp conference.)
