The Year of Business 2.0 - 2009 sees fast-paced integration of new technology by businesses

J. Maury Harris wrote a nice piece in The Vancouver Business Journal featuring a quote from me:
As in the past, emerging technologies fundamentally changed the way companies do business, with the explosion in popularity of social networking websites, Smartphones and an expanding list of mobile applications in 2009. But this year, the real story was how businesses, large and small, public and private, integrated these technological advances into their day-to-day operations.

Bruce Elgort, president and CEO of Elguji Software of Vancouver, has had a front-row seat to 2009's accelerating transition from traditional media to a more flexible online marketing model, helping to encourage what he called an inevitable and crucial "online conversation" with businesses about new technology.

"Companies are adopting social media more than they've adopted any other paradigm in history," Elgort said.
