Welcome to episode #49 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. You should thank John Wall from The M Show for this episode. I had recorded it and CastBlaster crashed on me. For close to twenty-four hours, I thought I was going to have to re-record the entire episode, but thanks to CAPOW – Communications And Podcasters Of The World, John Wall helped me find the temp file (which was in perfect condition) – Thank You John Wall! We’ve got a great conversation with Darrin Keane from Apple which was recorded at the Shop.org Online Marketing Workshop and an in-depth conversation with Ben Yoskovitz from Instigator Blog. There’s a lot to listen to. Enjoy this conversation…
Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast – Episode #49 – Host: Mitch Joel.

  1. Speaking of link baiting in a good way, I got a link from you based on the fact that you’ll be playing my audio comment … *next week*. Love it!
    Excellent episode again, Mitch. Particularly enjoyed the interview with Ben Yoskovitz. Have already subscribed to this blog.
    Looking forward to the big five-oh!

  2. Good to meet you face to face as well!
    I almost walked up to you and said “nice to meet you Seth Godin!”
    all the best

  3. Bryper – thanks for the feedback. I’m not sure I’ll do anything special at 50 or 52 for that matter. I’ll just keep on going.
    Colin – that’s fine, I was about to come up and ask you where your bow and arrows were. You’re a dead ringer for Ted Nugent (or Gary Busey). Both should be worrisome for you.
    Ben – it was a great conversation. You’re welcome to come back on any time. Feel free to linkbait the post so we get some good ole fashion Digg Juice.

  4. Hey Sallie,
    Just ask Julien Smith, Bob Goyetche, Mark Blevis or C.C. Chapman – it’s ALL LOVE.. and definitely a term of affection.
    Sorry to offend (if it did) – not my intent.
    I have a potty mouth (only sometimes).. I will fix it 🙂

  5. Once again, sorry Sallie.
    I’ll apologize on my next Podcast.
    It was meant as “my gang” or “my boys” – not as a derogatory term.

  6. Hey Mitch,
    I know you meant absolutely no harm by that sentence… you can tell by the tone in your voice that you were talking about your close group of friends.
    Your apology above is accepted. Keep up the great show. I thought your interview with Ben was stellar.
    What do you think of everything that’s going on with Digg now? It seems like we’re hitting a new level of censorship in the online world.
    I’d love your insights and thanks for the Podcast!
    Kelly Green

  7. Thanks Kelly,
    I was actually reading about the Digg story this morning. It seems like the a great case study for the “wisdom of crowds.”
    There are now MySpace pages, t-shirts, buttons and thousands of sites with this “code” on it.
    It really is a prime example of decentralized and democratized information. I know people are nipping at Digg for taking down the original post with the code in it, but – as we all know – that did little to stop it. In fact, one could argue that the removal actually created more news and awareness of this code.
    We’re going to see how this plays out.
    It reminds of the difference between Napster and Kazaa from the music piracy days. Napster was a location/destination whereas Kazaa was a peer-to-peer network.
    It may sound like semantics, but it makes a world of difference in terms of who lawyers can run after.
    As the story develops, I’m sure my thoughts will develop into a full-on Blog posting.
    Watch for it.
