SEMPO's gained three new members for its advisory board: Chris LaSala from Google, Neg Norton from the Yellow Pages Integrated Media Association and Safa Rashtchy from Piper Jaffray. More from SEMPO in this release. The new members fill spots vacated by the departure of Chris Sherman and myself (more on that here: Reflections On SEMPO). To discuss, please visit this forum thread: SEMPO Announces Three New Advisory Board Members.
Meanwhile, a parody site lampooning SEMPO, SEMPO-Tahoe, has been moving up in the rankings for a search on the organization's name. Today, it jumped to fourth place on Google. Discussion of that site can be found here on our forums: SEMPO Gone To The Dogs?
