"We're just at the tip of the iceberg"

This morning, Geoff Livingston of The Buzz Bin is giving the keynote to Success In the City's "New Media Nouveaux" attendees. About 50 local business leaders/lead marketers are hear to get the skinny on social media. I'm speaking on a panel later this a.m. about how to "do" social media, and will have more on that later.

Meanwhile, Geoff is the right one to break in the day. He is considered a "local blogging guru" in these parts, and his blog is hot.

He just shared McKinsey data stating that 63% of businesses are already engaging in social media. (Details via Bruce Nussbaum: McKinsey's recent global survey revealed that, while those 63% of corporations are playing with Web 2.0 services, only 16% are down with blogs.) I bet blogs will be a notable topic today.

Favorite question so far: "Geoff, what's a Second Life initiative?"

To quote Geoff (out of context), "we are just at the tip of the iceberg."
