As I sat reflecting on the ideas and discussions had at the Inbound Marketing Summit, I grappled with finding an appropriate voice for providing review. I concluded that it might be best to look to Twitter for perspective from some of the talented individuals who joined me in experiencing #IMS09 last week.
What I found was an impressive collection of quotes, ideas and links from those in attendance and presenting at IMS09. Hopefully, you’ll agree
So without further ado…
