Factiva Forum - A Hit!

I had the chance to serve on a panel at the Factiva Forum in N.Y. this past week. It was great on a number of fronts. They had about 100 of their top clients from the east coast attend to hear Factivas strategies for premium content. For those of you that are not familiar with Factiva, they produce premium content for consumption by organizations world-wide. As the world of content, especially content produced in an RSS format, increases, companies like Factiva become more and more valuable as a source of "trusted information". David Scott blogged about the event here.

Undertsanding RSS

Hartford Courant publication does a nice job of simplifying RSS. If you're already reading a few blogs, or are thinking about creating your own, this article is a must read.

It's a "Severe Clear" day

Ya gotta love Colorado, this morning when driving to work the weather forecaster mentioned that there was a "severe clear" warning. Translation; the air was so free of any particulate, the sun was so bright, the air so crisp that you should wear sunglasses and be careful driving. And he was serious about it! I love this time of year, mornings, afternoons, evenings - absolutely perfect.

Running in Central Park

I've been in NY the last couple of days on business. This morning I got up early and took a run through Central Park as I continue on my quest for my "Fall Get Healthy Plan". Some random thoughts I had while running;

- What a perfect day, sun shining, low humidity, beautiful!

- Gorgeous park, the city planners had amazing foresight in planning to dedicate this much space on a small island.

- Man. there's a lot of people that run early in NY. And most all of them are in great shape.

- Yowsa!

- 5 Miles is a long way to run, but it's so beautiful outside I forget all about how long it takes

- All this in the middle of the craziness of Manhattan. Unbelievable.

- The pavement is hard, it's starting to get hot, my legs are hurting, I need new running shoes (mine are 3 years old although they don't have a ton of miles on them)

- ah, done.

My New Approach

A friend of mine mentioned I should post to my blog more often. Normally, I take a Saturday or Sunday morning and write about a significant event that happened to me/around me that week. I'm going to take a little bit different approach moving forward. I'll continue my normal habit of the Saturday/Sunday post but I'll also start posting short excerpts or link to blogs that I read that I find interesting/informative, a couple of times a week. I read 50 or so RSS feeds a day (300+ posts) so the content is certainly there, now it's up to me.
