PBwiki is heading to the NBA All-Star Game!

13 Feb

Uber-blogger Henry Abbott of TrueHoop (now part of ESPN) is heading to the NBA All-Star Game, and he’s taking PBwiki with him.

Henry has asked TrueHoop’s tens of thousands of readers to join with him in creating a wiki for the All-Star Game which will include articles, posts, videos, and other original content.  And he’s chosen PBwiki.  Here’s what Henry had to say:

Let’s use that wiki to assemble, starting now and running all weekend, all of the best articles, blog posts, video, and original anecdotes about what’s happening all over the city. Not just the stuff that’s in press releases, but what’s really happening on the ground.

If you’re from New Orleans, and have a story to tell about having the All-Star game in your city, please share it here. If you find a great article or video about New Orleans, this is the place for it.

Basically, I am hoping that with your help this can become a go-to resource of the best real New Orleans information as All-Star Weekend rolls on. It’ll take a lot of you pitching in with thougtful contributions. But if you do, this’ll really be something.

Also, I’ll be honest, in the past I have found wikis kind of hard to operate. Not this one. It’s really simple. Try it. (emphasis added) Here’s the link again. Thanks.

Credit the assist to David Cohn of DigiDave fame for setting up the wiki.  Big thanks to both Henry and Dave for introducing PBwiki to such a broad audience.

    “to sell your story you need to tell your story”. I use this statement as the focal point in running my weekly BNI networking meeting. It does not matter if you are speaking to one person or many. Business cards are convienent but a trifold brochure is better. In my group it means 28 additional salespeople who have a story to tell about your business. That means more sales. Think about the statement and how you can tell your story. Good Luck. Tony Mastro

    […] same principle applies in business.  If you can get the press to do your job for you, why spend money buying ads?  What’s more valuable, a 1-page ad in Fortune, or a glowing […]
