 1. 3 Symantec Case Studies – and Me
 ===================================
 Michael Parker is the Vice President of Strategic Marketing
 at Symantec. I spoke with him for about half an hour and can’t
 wait to see his presentation on Wednesday in Burlingame. He’s
 got some great experiences, some great stories and more than
 a little passion about online marketing metrics.

 Which makes me slightly nervous, because I follow his
 lunch speech with a workshop on Social Media Metrics.
 See you there?

 3. Experience Catch 22
 ======================
 Do you go about getting experience if you don’t have any
 experience? You reach out to a mentor who has a project
 and will guide you through the endeavor in an avuncular
 (or materteral) manner.

 Where do you find such people and such projects?
 Glad you asked.

     The Analysis Exchange is an effort to dramatically
     increase the number of people on Earth doing web
     analytics the right way. We (Web Analytics Demystified)
     provide free webanalytics consulting to non-profits
     and NGOs around the world and our projects take less
     than four weeks to complete.

     Generously sponsored by IQ Workforce, The Analysis
     Exchange is creating an entirely new way to teach
     digital measurement best practices by connecting
     great causes with experienced mentors and motivated
     students.

 That just rocks.
