It was announced today that Laura Fitton, or as we all know her more appropriately as @pistachio, and her company oneforty.com received funding in the amount of $1.6M. Those of you that attended BlogWorld & New Media Expo this year know that Laura was our opening keynote address for the Social Media Business Summit which was our first day of the entire event. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Laura for making us a part of her 2009 and also congratulate her on her success. She is one of our people to watch in 2010 for certain and someone that I will be looking for to lead us in 2010.
Those that did not get an opportunity to watch or listen to the keynote given by Laura can see it over at MyContent.com. Her talk was both inspiring and a good look at how she was able to succeed in her start-up! Twitter has truly changed Laura’s life and now we can see how and why!
