M3AAWG in Philly This Week

Today marks the training day for M3AAWG 37 in Philly. With all the traveling and speaking I’ve been doing lately we’re not going to be there. So no tweeting from me about the conference. We’ve been attending various M3AAWG meetings since way early on – 2004? 2005? in San Diego. The organization has grown and matured […]

It’s only getting better and better. I’ll be tweeting from public sessions (and probably tweeting random things that […]

Another M3AAWG on the books

Another M3AAWG is over. It was great to see old friends, some of whom I’ve known for more than a decade. It was even better to meet new people who I’m sure will become old friends. The conference has grown so much bigger than my first MAAWG back in San Diego (MAAWG 3 in 2005). […]


Whirlwind that is M3AAWG

It’s been a great conference, and it’s only about half done. As is common at these conferences, I write down lots of things we should do and need to publish. The difference is now that we are growing I may have the time to put the polish on them and get them published. Today’s keynote […]

May 2015: The Month in Email

Greetings from Dublin, where we’re gearing up for M3AAWG adventures. In the blog this month, we did a post on purchased lists that got a lot of attention.

Friday fun stuff

Between the rampaging llamas and a photo optical illusion the internet has been a silly, silly place the last 24 hours. I have a little present for folks. I hinted there may be pictures from Kilt Day at M3AAWG in an earlier post. There are, and all of the subjects have granted permission for me […]

  • Vague reports of Yahoo problems

    A number of people, on different forums, have been asking if anyone is seeing a higher bounce rate than usual with Yahoo. Not sure exactly what's going on here. As I understand it, folks are talking with Yahoo about it. If I hear anything more, I'll share. For now, though, if you're seeing a small increase in Yahoo bounces (or other weirdnesses) others are seeing something odd, too.No Comments

  • Brief blogging break

    Sorry about the unexpected hiatus. I picked up a cold that really made me feel fuzzy and writing was an exercise in futility. I'll be back Monday. Meanwhile, Oracle bought another ESP (Bronto) when they bought NetSuite.  No Comments
