Welcome back to another week of The Network’s top stories! We have an exciting week coming up, with Cisco Live in Las Vegas- if you by any chance have any extra plane tickets, feel free to send them my way. Even if you aren’t making your way down to Vegas, stay tuned. We have plenty of exciting stories happening here as well.

2.) Social Spoken: Aja Money on Technology Bringing Us Together

Aja Monet is the third poet in The Network’s summer poetry series. Her poem, “Mobilizing a Movement of the Mind,” tells the story of technology’s impact on connecting us as humans across continents and generations.

3.) Rethinking the Marketing Funnel in a World of Social Media

As the adoption of social media continues to deepen, businesses today are faced with the challenge of rethinking many of their basic strategic paradigms. In thinking about customers, businesses are facing a shift from a paradigm of individual customers to one of customer networks. At the same time, many models for marketing need to be updated as well. One of the oldest and most widely adopted marketing models is the “marketing funnel.” Check out this feature by David Rogers.

4.) Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi Delivers “Next Generation Mobility Experience” for Fans at Sports & Entertainment Venues
