John Moore over at Brand Autopsy has an interesting series of posts going on rightnow that focus on the impact that business are making. The legacies they are creating - or not creating - aren’t really thought about. This can apply to anyone, including you and I. How would you answer this about yourself or what you do?: Does [insert your brand] provide such a unique product and customer experience that we would be saddened if …

My friend Robert Scoble put up a couple of Seesmic videos on how to reverse-engineer Techmeme. For anyone who doesn’t know, Techmeme is a fringe site that aggregates technology news from blogs. The more a story is talked about, the more likely it will appear on Techmeme. And the more authoritative the people talking about the story, the higher they will appear on the Techmeme home page. I watch both videos in their entirety, and enjoyed …

Categories: Blogging, Business,

I did an interview a few days ago with Jennifer Jones, the host of PodTech’s Marketing Voices. We talked about the future of journalism, and what we referred to as “the death of print.” For those not in the know, major companies are starting to approach bloggers more and more for coverage of their products. Heck, at CES, we recorded almost 200 episodes of The Bleeding Edge, something I am almost certain no other “traditional” …
