"Today is your gift; that's why it's called 'present'." @RummelAnnette at #DMAI14
"Embracing change also means being willing to admit that you're wrong." CEO of @rocketfuelinc at #DMAI14
Some time talking with my travel heroes @reidontravel & @jenleo is worth the price of admission. #DMAI14

RT @nerdseyeview: dear rocket wielding lunatics, just stop it, okay? yours truly, everyone else
A7. Go where online media hang out, online & off. For ex: there's a beer blogger conference & there's the #craftbeer hashtag. #tourismchat
A6. More on the @HawaiiHTA blogger fam that included locals (was in 2009; thx @christinelu!) http://www.bizjournals.com/pacific... #tourismchat #DMAI14
A7. Best way to start connecting w/bloggers is....on their blog. Twitter chats are great, too. #tourismchat
A6. Yes, @HawaiiHTA paired visiting niche bloggers w/local bloggers in same niche. Wish more DMOs did this. #tourismchat
Side note: don't ask for honesty from online media & then get mad if they point out that your local dump is, well, a dump. #tourismchat
A4.Content quality trumps all, & remember that little bloggers can grow up to be big bloggers (HT @lizstrauss) #tourismchat
Connecting with media isn't new, of course (hello, Rolodex.) Build relationships b4 asking for something. #tourismchat
A3. I hope destinations that are hunting for out-of-town "influencers" have already built a foundation w/local ones. #tourismchat
