How To Impact Customer Relationships With Social Media And Messages On Hold | Expert Advice | Easy On Hold Blog

Steven Cook, KVCC Social Media Strategist, says the college had been a topic of frequent conversation on the Internet. Only, the college wasn't doing much of the talking.
"We knew we needed to insert ourselves where we could by answering student tweets about registration times or financial aid, for example. And of course trying to calm the angry rants that are bound to happen with any institution of our size," Steven says. "We can post a response on a Twitter conversation that clarifies a misunderstanding, or points a student in the right direction with college administration. Who better to jump into the conversation than KVCC itself?"
Steven admits it's easier to do with Twitter than Facebook.
"With Twitter we can talk to one, to many, or to all of our followers, something you just can't do while managing Facebook pages," he says. "We have been able to use Twitter as a tool in customer service, student recruitment and retention, news and events promotion and more. It gives a real sense of what conversations are happening around our school's brand. Students don't even have to talk to us; we can find them if they just talk about us through Twitter searches."
Steven uses http://hootsuite.com/ to easily manage the internet chatter at a glance. [Editor's note: Hootsuite recently acquired Seesmic, another popular social media content management service, and is going to a paid platform.

Ilyce's Blog: July 2011

Steve Cook of Real Estate Economy Watch wrote a surprising post for the Equifax personal finance blog today that shows that the fifth most common reason Americans cited for buying a home was to avoid paying more to own a pet.
That ranks above "wanting to live the American dream" in terms of reasons people switched from renting to home ownership.
Last year, the number of U.S. households that own a pet climbed to a record high of 72.9 million. With that kind of devotion to our animals, pet ownership is sure to be a factor driving the real estate market. For more details on how Fido and Fluffy shape the real estate market, check out Steve Cook's full blog on pets and home ownership.

I'In the space of 24 hours, Martin Fowler and Michael Platt both point to this article by Steve Cook about Microsoft's views on MDA.
...
Furthermore ... the fact that the MDA is based on the use of the UML and MOF specifications restricts its usefulness even more. [Domain-Specific Modeling and Model Driven Architecture by Steve Cook, page 6]
Keith and Steve are architects in the VS.NET group, so this is straight from the horse's mouth.
...
Steve joined MS last year, leaving IBM where he had worked on (among other things, I'm sure) the UML 2.0 specification process.It's interesting that someone who has worked on UML so extensively appears to have such a negative opinion of it's direction.
Since "MDA" and "Model Driven Architecture" are registered trademarks of OMG (even though they are often used to refer to the generic approach of using models in the design process), Steve refers to Microsoft's approach as "Domain-Specific Modeling" while Keith writes about "the idea of a family of inter-related, but individually specialized modeling languages the industry is calling domain-specific languages".
...
At the recent Microsoft Professional Developers' conference, we announced modeling tools-we call them designers-that help the developer to design and deploy distributed service-oriented applications. [Domain-Specific Modeling and Model Driven Architecture by Steve Cook, page 5]

Steve Cook responded to Grady Booch's latest comments on software factories and DSLs, which was in turn a response to an entry by Alan Wills.
...
As Alan and Steve both point out, we're not rejecting UML.
...
Steve refers to UML as having "cognitive semantics", which means there is no one objective definition for a specific element of UML.
...
Because of this lack of objective precision, Steve describes the resulting discussion of UML and its semantics as "political, rather than objective" which IMO is not a good foundation to build your own language on.
