Edelman to teach classes on social media; hazing not allowed

Steve posted the answer to the question everyone wanted answered - What's next?

The me2revolution team I work for will be involved with teaching Edelman University classes on ethics in social media, reviewing programs before they are implemented and more.

This is obviously a good thing. The MS&L Blogworks team has a similar role in that we develop, pitch and execute the programs we run for our clients with our PR teams.

The big next step is for companies that run WOM campaigns to sign on to the WOMMA Ethics Code as DuPont announced earlier this year.

so they're basically announcing they're doing their jobs now? "hey guys, we're going to watch what we do for the client and make sure it's not some random act again." Um, I think I was expecting some form of repentance or admission of guilt but then again I don't know steve so maybe this is as far as he can take it publicly.

I saw your ad for your speaking engagement at the WOMMA conference in D.C.

I was so disappointed when SixApart canceled/postponed its Detroit 1/2-day seminar.

What about the Midwest? What about Detroit? Why are there no social media/blogging/WOM conferences here, or close by?

Think one needs to be organized locally. Any ideas who we can get to speak?

Also, I listened a bit to the Edelman U podcast. It was interesting and worth the time. As surprising as it seems to me, the top dogs at the ME2 Revolution were not involved with the Wal-Mart fake blog? That's the picture Edelman is painting. If that turns out not to be true, this'll blow up again in their face -- and rightly so. If that is true, then the corrective measures seem to be in place.

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. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

The biggest problem is, Trump is a well documented racist that tries to help legitimize FOX News and Alex Jones and every racist thing in between. What these media properties all know is that a) division works and b) some people of faith will believe anything. Trump pushed the Obama birther theory, he declined housing to African Americans and he employs employed a racist in former Breitbart employee Steve Bannon. 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
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…
