Jon Rivers of Data Masons is doing a multi-part series “Convergence Climbs the Social Ladder” featuring the views of the official Microsoft-appointed Convergence bloggers.

Make sure to check out the rest of the series, where he’s interviewed (so far) Microsoft MVPs Gus Gonzalez, Belinda Allen, and Joris de Gruyter.
Convergence was huge for many reasons, one of which was the prominent emphasis on the social community. Prior to the event, Microsoft tapped 11 bloggers to serve as the conference’s official bloggers and promoted the social community with its release of the Live Wall. Once onsite we heard from Wayne Morris, Corp VP of Microsoft Business Solutions Marketing, about the integration of mobile and social capabilities within its go-forward strategy. The Result… A measurable growth in the Microsoft Dynamics social community with a very impressive ranking for the Twitter hashtag #CONV13, climbing to one of the top 10 trending hashtags for the week (that’s global, that’s a huge success!)
