Digital Markets are the future: Technology’s future and my blog’s future!
“Where Technology Means Business” is ZDNet’s tag line and it also encapsulates the perspective I have been putting forth at my ZDNet Digital Micro-Markets Blog since last Spring.
Seven months and 750 stories later, I will now be writing under a “Digital Markets” banner, rather than the Digital Micro-Markets banner.
Why? David Grober, ZDNet Senior Editor, eloquently introduced my blog last May under the headline “Local Markets of One”:
You are a market of one. We all are.
Donna Bogatin, in her new ZDNet blog, explores how the increasingly consumer involved, on-demand digital world promises to transform virtually every market. Donna has been advising companies on Web-based business development for nearly a decade. She writes:
“As mobility and personalization become the norm, consumers will become local markets of one and companies will use technology and telecommunications to create and deliver product to potentially billions of individual, digital micro-markets, on demand.”
Still very true, but the stakes have risen, along with Google’s market cap!
So, in conjunction with ZDNet’s new look, we are rebranding my blog to say simply, but powerfully, “Digital Markets,” reflecting the ever increasing mainstream role digitization is playing not only in technology, but in business, worldwide!
My blog URL has NOT changed, however; You can still read me at http://blogs.zdnet.com/micro-markets
