Everyone’s starting to buzz about Spotify (I got my invite on Friday and LOVE it).
“Everyone,” of course, being everyone who’s into this kind of stuff… which is still not a lot of people in the grand scheme of things (though my Facebook and Farmville-addicted mom joined Google+ yesterday, so I take that quite seriously).
At least for today, no Google+ or Spotify or other shiny new talk. Here are some good reads for you:
Why: Arik’s absolutely right. What with all the content we’re producing for ourselves, organizations and clients, how can we not be educating ourselves on the aspects of production?
Why: we all yell about “bad” PR, but Shel’s way of putting it is so much better. And reminds us that we need to support our own industry more.
Why: a pretty smart way to use Instagram to pitch a story. I also think it’s probably easier for AOL mobile-execs to get TechCrunch’s attention since they’re sister companies, but it’s still a smart idea.
Why: you already know why, don’t you?
Why: it’s brilliant.
6. The importance of meeting clients and prospects on their own turf, by Joanna Pineda.
Why: a pretty important thing for us to remember, especially since so much, if not virtually all, of our work is done virtually.
7. Watching Ushahidi’s Mumbai response unfold, with co-founder Erik Hersman, by Emily McManus at the TED Blog.
Why: when this past week’s terror attacks in Mumbai happened, my heart sank. “Not again,” I thought. And yes, I feel bad when such things happen anywhere, but when they happen in my country of origin, I feel especially impacted. I tried to do what I could to spread the call for help, and Ushahidi was instrumental in doing this.
Have a good Sunday, all! I’m off to Houston tomorrow, so I’ll “see” you in a few days. Some great guest posts are coming your way over the next few days, so don’t go away.
