Yesware – Integrating Email and CRM

I continue to be obsessed about email – it’s by far the most significant comm channel I use. And – it’s accelerating, not decelerating, especially as it proliferates across devices as well as other comm channels. I’ve watched as many of the companies we’ve invested in use email and CRM systems (such as Salesforce) as though…

Implementing Social Media’s Secret Weapon

Fred Wilson had an excellent post up this morning titled Social Media’s Secret Weapon – Email. I completely agree that email is the key communications channel for social media and have written about this before in posts like 100% Click Through Rate, Email – The Original Social Graph and Email Is Still The Best Login. I’ve…

I Love Google’s Style

Today Google announced that they had now raised the limit on number of contacts to 25,000 (from 10,000) for all Gmail users (including Google Apps users.)  Boom – done – deployed for everyone – and announced in a short and to the point blog post. 70 days ago I wrote a post titled Dear Google,…

Dear Google, I Have More Than 10,000 Contacts

I just received the “amusing email of the day” from Google. I feel like I’m in one step forward / one step back with Google Enterprise Support. If you read my two recent posts on this, you saw that I started by saying that it’s Time For Google To Get Serious About Enterprise Tech Support…

RIM Acquires Gist

Congrats to my friends at Gist for being acquired by RIM. I met TA McCann, the CEO / founder of Gist at the first Defrag Conference when he took me for a pair of runs along the Denver Creek Path and it’s been a blast to work with him and the Gist team ever since….

Gist in Gmail for Chrome

Gist just released their Chrome extension for Gist in Gmail.  Chrome is my browser of choice for Gmail and I’ve been anxiously awaiting this release.  It’s just awesome. It’s tightly integrated with both consumer and enterprise Gmail.  It’s fast, light weight, and takes advantage of the huge amount of data discovery that Gist does via…

Gist for Gmail

Yesterday, Gist released their new Gist for Gmail Firefox plugin (the Chrome plugin will be out in two weeks).  As a long time Gist user and investor, I’ve been anxiously awaiting this as it makes Gist available to anyone using Gmail (vs. previously just Google Apps users.) Since I just finally completed my move over…

New Email Newsletter on Work-Life Balance

While at the amazing Tahoe Tech Talk, I heard Dave Morin mention a new service called Letter.ly.  It’s a great example of brilliance through its simplicity. In my never ending quest to use all the things I find interesting, I’ve started an email newsletter called Feld On Work-Life Balance.  While I periodically post on Work-Life…

Gmail Made Me Go To Bed Earlier Last Night

My week-long experiment with Gmail continues with my first big bump happening last night at around 9pm.  After sending a lot of emails (apparently 500) I received an error message “You have reached a limit for sending mail“.  I tried again.  This perplexed me.  So I clicked on the link. I read through it and…
