VIDEO: HubSpot’s Dharmesh Shah, The Engineer Who Hacked Marketing, Chats At MarTech

Now poised for a $100 million IPO, HubSpot’s co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dharmesh Shah, says the company’s early aha moment came from the success of Shah’s company blog.
Speaking with host Scott Brinker at the inaugural MarTech conference in Boston, Shah explains he saw a philosophy shift in how marketing was evolving. His blog took off, he says, because of SEO, social, email and other tactics the company has since dubbed inbound marketing.
In the fireside chat with Brinker, Shah shares the creation story of HubSpot, similarities he sees between marketing and engineering, why he’s bullish on the marketing technology sector and much more.
The full conversation video is now available on YouTube and embedded below.

Disappearing Act: LinkedIn Lays Off InMaps Network Visualization Tool

One of the slicker connection features that LinkedIn offered has been quietly discontinued. InMaps was a tool from LinkedIn that allowed users to better visualize their connections that they’ve made on the service. As of this week, InMaps will be retired as the following message is present on the main InMaps page:
InMaps is being discontinued on September 1, 2014, so we can focus on developing new ways to visualize your professional network. Please check out the LinkedIn Help Center if you have any questions. And don’t forget to download your InMap by August 31!
InMaps allowed uses to color code the various clusters that they’ve created in their professional history.

According to follow up Tweets by Mr. Oestlien the new user experience has been thoroughly tested, performing better than the old process which will hopefully keep users engaged with the service. Some of the focus in the new user intake redesign is on an interest picker, a cleaner user upload process and a better blended mix of content coming from a user’s graph.
