I'm famous?

I spoke at the Word of Mouth Marketing Association a few weeks ago and did a podcast on creating corporate blogs. Apparently the podcasts are also available through iTunes, Odeo, Yahoo, and every other major podcast channel. Pretty cool.

Both of my presentations are available through the WOMMA web site at:

You'll need to scroll down (or do a Find in your browser by my name) to get to them, but they're both good primers on each topic ("How to Create Great Blogs That Get People Talking" and "How to Sell WOM to Your Boss").

I also met the PR genius Steve Rubel of Micropersuasion.com. Steve is such a visionary in this field, if you want the latest and greatest on Web 2.0 and PR then subscribe to his RSS feed.

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States.

I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."


Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to yougotrickrolled.com.
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.


Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…
