Last night we previewed Kred, our brand new scoring system for Influence and Outreach, to a packed house at our San Francisco headquarters. Kred invitations will start going out on Wednesday, October 6th; you can sign up for yours at http://kred.ly.
The word is getting out fast. As of this writing, our preview presentation (embedded at top) had 44,000 views since it was first posted last night. (There is also a booklet available at http://bit.ly/KredGuide.) Within 24 hours, Kred had been mentioned on Twitter over 5,000 times.
After Jodee presented Kred, he was joined onstage by Jeffrey Hayzlett, Porter Gale and Shira Lazar for a thought leadership panel on collective influence. We also had a surprise virtual guest in Robert Scoble, who dialed in over FaceTime from Half Moon Bay. Several articles on Kred appeared today - highlighted by great stories from AdAge, TechCrunch, San Francisco Chronicle and the TheNextWeb - generating a lot more curiosity and enthusiasm. Here are just a few of the great tweets mentioning us today:
