The vagina one caught my attention. Ha! Thanks @3HatsComm /Davina! Will have to go over the post again to comment and get your numbers up.
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.
Thanks for highlighting my post. Hadn't had the time to check out Spotify yet... as well as a few good posts I missed, thanks.
I love that you had the guts to feature Davina's post, Shonali! ha ha.
Otherwise - thank you for the reading material!
