Mashable Writer Contributes to The Industry Standard (That’s Me)

tis-logo.gifThe Industry Standard has returned to the tech scene, not as a printed publication, but in the reincarnated form of an online publication and interactive prediction market. I was fortunate enough to get an early look at TIS prior to its launch, and covered its emergence here on Mashable.

I was also fortunate enough to receive a request from TIS to be a contributor to the site. TIS has garnered notable contributors from across the web, like Guy Kawasaki and Matt Marshall, so I’m honored to be in such good company.

kristen-profile.pngWhile contributing to TIS won’t be interfering with my job at Mashable, it is a good opportunity for a Mashable writer to be part of the larger conversations going on about today’s industry. Of course, my specialty happens to be rather focused on social media and all the implications therein, so if you’d like, feel free to check out my first contribution to TIS.

It’s actually a collection of sites that are likely to fail or succeed. The basis for determining the potential fails included seeking out sites that have gained a lot of press, but don’t quite live up to the hype. In regards to the potential successes, I looked at sites that have a great concept, but are still diamonds in the rough. Bill Snyder also contributed to this particular article, which can be found here.

I’m excited about being able to contribute to the ongoing discussions of our day, and carrying these discussions through Mashable, and even through my personal website as well.
