TSOT’s New Office – True to Toronto’s Tech Scene

15 01 2008

Yeah, that’s right; This IS a gratuitous post about TSOT’s gorgeous new office! Our company has just opened an awesome ‘playground/workspace’ for our developers, and I have to say it really embodies the ‘tech business’ culture of our city. Anyone who has spent time in the heart of Toronto knows that we tend to be a little ‘outside the box’ when it comes to business etiquette – casual everydays and flex-schedules aside, we like to embrace the fun side of our tech community. 60” plasma televisions help, as does having Wii and Xbox 360 systems in the office… musical instruments and a karaoke mic also help induce a bit of extroversion in the workplace 😉

Our team is really happy with the new space, and we’ve already begun to invite the community in to take a peek. Our next event for the tech community will take place Tuesday February 12th at 5:30pm – please call me at (416) 640-6144 x229 for details, or visit http://www.tsotinc.com to sign up for our newsletter.

Press Release Me!

7 08 2007

So, with all the buzz going on at work surrounding the FraternityLive and SororityLive websites, particularly as we draw closer to Rush events geared at getting students connected as they return to campus, I’ve had the opportunity to look into press release services to distribute our news. The company I work for, TSOT Inc., needed to find a fast and reliable way of getting the word out – beyond the world of blogging, that is. Based on the nature of our products, which are internet based and largely fueled by users in the web 2.0 scheme, I chose PRweb (eMediawire affiliate) as my distribution outlet. So far I’ve only submitted one release… a tester of sorts… just to feel the waters and see what sort of interest I can garner along the way. Much to my surprise, and despite the Canadian civic holiday, the article has already gotten quite a few hits. It was picked up by google news (though not as a top story 🙂 as well as another UK newssite… it’s pretty gratifying to see that PRweb’s online editors gave the release a 4 out of 5 editorial rating, too (speaking to my ability to write a press release, yeehaw) – I think the real question is will there be any correlation between the release stats and our site stats… only time will tell.
