A great evening this past Tuesday with 18 CMOs in attendance at our NYC CMO CLUB dinner (photos above). Dean Harris' insights around Online Video and additional discussion from a number of CMOs in attendance from the digital music industry was valuable for all the participants.

“Social Media: Friend or Foe?”
Social media like blogs, MySpace, YouTube, etc. can spread news
about your company or products to millions of people with the
click of a mouse. But, bad news and attacks on your brand can
spread just as fast. So, how should you think about social media
in the context of your marketing mix?
