88SLIDE: One-Minute Trivia Podcast

88SLIDE: the daily one minute trivia challenge is one podcast that I catch every day. It’s a one-minute game show … and I love game shows. Total gameshow junkie. Always have been. Plus, a total useless data / information / trivia junkie. I coulda been a contender on Jeopardy. But, was always too lazy.

Where Were the PR People at Vloggercon?

The past weekend – not the last one, but the weekend before – I went to Vloggercon.

Sitting at the Vloggercon show again, and I came to hear on the panel on Net Neutrality – an area that really does interest me, mainly because of the deafening silence in the Web 2.0 community. Huge silence.

The big announcement today was … ABC is unveiling the new ABC.com to showcase the new theatre that will allow viewers to see certain ABC shows immediately the next day. That, in a way, is cool.

Facebook + (No PR) = Car Crash

Facebook is an interesting phenomenon. It’s a college-only social network — oh, wait, college (but no junior colleges, and still some ignored colleges) and select high schools and some 8th grades — that is supposed to connect college students that are on the same campus, and then extend that to other friends on other campuses, so you get the Breck shampoo effect (tell two friends, they tell two friends …).

FORWARD: Lessons from Silicon Valley Journalists

CoComment Gets Half the Job Down

Okay, I track blogs. I always have. It’s not a big deal, it’s part of PR and what I hope to convey to others in the industry and the agency life – that it’s not just enough to be tracking the media, but you need to get your Pubsub / Technorati / Blogpulse on (yes, all three).

Going for that 25 Percent

There’s been a lot of talk about the 25 percent.
