SPOS #155 – Media Hacks #9

Posted by

Welcome to episode #155 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. Somehow we managed to get the whole gang together for a brand new episode of Media Hacks. There was tons of rambling, debate and back and forth on why ideas spread, what really worries us about the coming year, and the power of education (and why it’s in need of immediate repair). Enjoy the conversation…

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast – Episode #155 – Host: Mitch Joel.

  1. Are these people actually doing stuff on the web? or are they just philosophizing about the web?
    Were it not for these “dinners”, “conferences”, etc. they be able to “make” money on the web?
    They sound like they’re 60 “Twitter is zeeping into the kids!”…
    Sit behind one of these 15 year old kids and watch them interact on Twitter…. Maybe then you’ll get a glimpse of the future of the web and where it will go. And more importantly how you can use it to your marketing advantage.
    Couple of pointers:
    1. stop name dropping about who you were talking to and what they do… No one knows them!!!
    2. Stop using old people buzz words such as : “digital,” “Kindle,” “editors,” “over-abundance of information,” “attention deficit society”
    3. “everyone likes to look cool digging and retweeting and redditing and all that other stuff” hehe that was a funny quote.
    And Seth Godin doesn’t accept comments on his blog. Isn’t the web about debate and “communicating back and forth”? did you see his twitter account? 5 followers and its a “placeholder” LOL
    Hopefully this comment gets “approved” and we can start a real discussion.

  2. Comments don’t need to be approved. They just go live.
    Discussion is nice. Confrontation is something else.
    I posted this at 9:50 pm and the Podcast is 50 minutes long. So, you listened to some of it and didn’t like it… I’m sorry. Maybe this type of content is not for you.

  3. Thanks for responding.
    I’m not a newbie.
    And if there’s anything to know about marketing is that confrontation is always good πŸ™‚
    I know exactly who you guys are… and most of you write books that are inspirational and “empower” employees at companies that are trying to find the holy grail on the web for their next “maketing Campaign.”
    None of you get the granularity of social interaction, the virality or the creativity of producing the content that goes viral to the masses.
    We want to hear some examples of what you guys did, what the results were. Its not about someone’s 15 yr old kid and how “craaazy�? it is that they asked their parents if they could open a “twitter account�?… face it: the kid was on twitter since he was 13 πŸ˜‰
    Try to see why these kids feel the need to communicate in this way and you may learn something… Maybe even how to reach out to them through the interwebs.
    Its not always a bad, anonymous and sneaky internet boogeyman that is on the other side of your 13 year old’s chat window.

  4. Oh, you work for Guillaume. Send him my regards.
    Like I said in my previous email, I’m sorry if you don’t like the content or if you feel like we don’t have a strong knowledge base. Perhaps this show is not for you.
    As for your references between Twitter and 13-year-olds, you must know that the teen demographic is the smallest for Twitter. The majority of Twitter users are actually 35-49 (about 42%): http://tr.im/l7a0.
