SEMPO is becoming more corporate by the day it seems. I would have never dreamed of seeing someone from Hewlett-Packard on the board. Whether going corporate is a good or a bad thing, only time will tell.

Oddly enough I could find no mention of this info on the SEMPO site, but the full release is on Search Engine Land.

  • Interesting mention about whether it’s good or bad for SEMPO to become “more corporate”. I’ll keep that in mind. Regarding someone from HP being elected for the board, I hope, since I am that person that it had nothing to do with corporate vs non-corporate objectives but rather my profile (submitted as part of the election process) and what I can offer as a board member. I manage search engine optimization for Hewlett-Packard and find great value in organizations like SEMPO. What I hope to do with my board seat is provide a global enterprise in-house search perspective. I’m excited to see that Duane Forrester, a fellow in-house search marketer, was also elected.
