Update! The Beyond Web Analytics Podcast has won the 2011 WAA Award for Excellence Innovator/Technology of the year award!
Earlier this month I was thrilled and honored that the Beyond Web Analytics podcast I started with Adam Greco had been nominated for 2 WAA Awards of Excellence! When searching for the right words to express my gratitude to all of the amazing guests, hosts, and listeners of the podcast my mind kept drifting back to this quote.
“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” – Sir Isaac Newton
In the past year we have recorded 41 podcasts with over 74,000 total downloads. And through this process I have been fortunate to not only work along side longtime industry luminaries like Adam Greco, Gary Angel, and James Dutton, but I have also been able to talk with and get to know countless others along the way that I now count among my friends. Each of them willing to give of their time and expertise to not just the podcast, but to the digital measurement community as well.Last year at XChange John Lovett asked me what my motivation was for starting this podcast. I will tell you as I told him then, that it started out as I just wanted to do a podcast to be able to give back to this amazing community that has been so welcoming to me. And it is truly that. I am very proud of the work we have done and excited about the work left to be done.
I would like to those those who thought enough of our podcast to nominate it for such an honor. I would also like to thank IQ Workforce and eMetrics ( Jim Sterne ) for helping us promote the podcast and giving us the exposure and audience to really help it grow. I would be remiss if I did not thank our great listeners and guests who are the backbone of this effort.
Thank you to all the of the giants that have let me and the podcast stand on their shoulders.
Thank you to all of our listeners and guests! It is all of you that has made this possible.
