  • I’ve joined HubSpot as VP platform ecosystem, and this is why

  • 72 hours in Shanghai in a parallel martech universe

    The world’s three largest Internet companies are American: Google (Alphabet), Amazon, and Facebook. The fourth largest — actually the 9th most valuable company in the world by market capitalization — is the Chinese giant Tencent.

  • Marketing + Technology + Management – Hype = MarTech

    I have an allergy to hype. I know, that’s an unfortunate condition given that I’m in the field of marketing technology. It’s like being a lactose-intolerant maître fromager. Luckily, the symptoms are relatively mild — mostly involuntary rolling of the eyes and rapid finger twitching on the delete key.

  • 3 thoughts on Marketo’s domain outage this week

    This was a rough week for the folks at Marketo. If you hadn’t heard, they somehow let their marketo.com domain expire. This brought down their website, customer consoles, and — most unfortunately — things like Marketo tracking scripts, landing pages, and web forms that their customers were relying on for their customer-facing web experiences.
