In less than two weeks, an exclusive group of IMA members and partners will gather up in the Grand Cayman for two days of discovery and high level networking. The IMA and Cayman Enterprise City (CEC) have worked together closely over the last few months to put this extraordinary opportunity together and I encourage you to sign up.

The IMA continues to grow and is fully engaged in deploying its network of regional groups. Following in the footsteps of the NorthWest group headed by IMA Board member Jeff Marcoux (Microsoft), we are pleased to announce the launch of our Mountain West group headed by Kreg Peeler, CEO of SpinGo. IMA East is next in our plan to launch 200 groups nationally.

This month's IMA Research Lab report looks at validating the assertion that the "social media phase of the Internet is over," as stipulated by Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, in a business insider report on the last day of 2014.

Happy readings.
