Technology isn’t Scary. You’re Only Making It Scary.

“You’re hurting your business by not embracing technology at this point.”

One of the many great tips from Chris Pirillo, who has been participating in Internet conversations since 1992, having launched Lockergnome as a content publishing network and building Gnomedex to be one of the blogosphere’s highly regarded conferences. In 1998, he authored the authoritative book on e-mail publishing — further establishing himself as a thought leader. WHO AM 1040, a popular Midwest talk radio station, invited him to start hosting a weekly “tech show” broadcast in early 2000. His presence was ultimately noticed by both talent and executive producers at the television station, TechTV. He moved from the middle of Iowa to San Francisco in 2001, and began hosting “Call for Help” for them – driving a live, interactive program that focused on solving common technology frustrations.

    Technology must be embraced otherwise you are not moving nor progressing towards innovation.  A business must have an online presence in order to move along with technology and also create more sales of those tech savvy prospects that don’t flip thru the yellow book anymore.
