Foldera Lives!

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006
My buddy, Michael Sampson, the new World-Wide Director of something or other, blogs that Foldera has starting the public beta of their web-based organizer and messaging/collaboration service.
... [Foldera's] web-based solution can save time and boost productivity for a range of businesses and enterprises. Foldera's user-friendly solution uses proprietary intelligent "Activity Folders" to automatically and instantly sort and file emails, instant messages, tasks, documents and calendar events.
Seriously, I know it's become the mantra of the decade, but who wouldn't want to save some time and boost productivity? I've not worked with the product yet so I cannot make an specific comments, yet.
Seriously, I have a lot of respect for Michael, in addition to home educating his growing family in New Zealand, with his lovely wife, Katrina, he's managing several of the Collaborative Technologies Conference sessions. Michael and I went to CTC last year and I have to say that it was one of the better conferences I've attended in some time. Unfortunately, schedule conflicts prevented us from attending this year.

Michael recently quit his consulting practice in order to join the Foldera team as their Global VP of Word-of-Mouth Marketing. (I assume that VP of word-of-blog marketing is in there somewhere?) In any case, what amazes me is that Foldera could snag Michael and others like him. Speaking of snagging top talent, Marc Orchant, recently announced that he, too, was leaving his company to join the ranks at Foldera. I wonder who's next? Scoble? Gates? Mack?

I expect to see great things from Foldera, Michael, and Marc!

Foldera Lives!

Thanks for the heads up - I just registerd for the limited beta.

In terms of the marketing, a term I heard recently that I really like is "word-of-mouse".
