NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.
Matt Marshall, editor-in-chief and founder of VentureBeat, kicked off the opening of the DEMO Fall 2010 conference today with a little too much information about his latest date and how she showed off her virtual farm to him. He was making the point that virtual farming didn’t exist a short time ago and now it’s the latest rage in social technology.
Marshall pointed out that the new trends happening in the industry include the new wave of e-commerce, cloud computing, and the growth of social media. Check out Marshall’s presentation, which is getting a little slicker with every new DEMO conference.
