Social Meda Top 5, #6: BlogWorld, Virtual Thirst, & Web 2.0 Cheerleaders on Acid

Filed under: social media — doughaslam @ 4:01 pm

kool-aidYes, I know, I skipped a week. Not that you all were lighting up the comments asking where it was, but her I am once again with my value-added links to the social media topics of the day:

  • BlogWorld Expo: Todd Cochrane of Geek News Central (and many others I hope) up in arms as blog monetization advocates shrug their shoulders over voluntary disclosure of paid blog posts. As I site here, drinking my Pepsi, writing notes in my Moleskin with my Bic pen, I think I have to agree.
  • Coke Virtual Thirst Second Life contest winner announced. Doug Hayashi (my avatar) shut out of event due to lack of space. Did I mention how refreshing an ice cold Pepsi tastes, even on a crisp November day like today?
  • Self-aggrandizement department: Aaron Brazell of b5media apparently loses mind, includes me in group of five otherwise well-qualified social media and PR experts in a roundtable PR discussion.
  • Public relations flacks block email addresses of journalists who block PR people who spam them. Giant feedback loop created that would destroy the Internet if anyone cared enough to notice.
  • Web 2.0 cheerleader Steve Rubel successfully cured of “Web 2.0 Kool-Aid” addiction. Web 2.0 Hallucinogenics are another matter entirely.

  1. Looks like someone virtually forgot to RSVP…

    I’ll buy you a Coke the next time I see you, if it makes you feel any better.

    Smithers: “Sir, did you ever stop to think that maybe it was doing this that caused the previous care-takers to go insane and murder their family?
    Mr. Burns: “Mm. Perhaps. Tell you what; if we come back and everyone’s slaughtered, I’ll owe you a Coke.”

  3. That was probably my fault. I told CC “No RiffRaff”

  4. Scott, apparently my RSVP got lost in the mail *cough.* Or it could have been the groovy lunch-time sale at Radio shack that made me late to get in and the sim was full–

    Christina, you’re on! Of course I will read SLNN coverage

    Gideon I left my watermelon gun, my bling, and other assorted “door prizes” i have accumulated in my Second Life travels behind. what trouble could I have caused?

  5. That was probably my fault. I told CC “No RiffRaff”

    Except that I got in.
