We're talking Olympics on the show today, with ad rates, the NBCU sell-out, access and delays of our favorite sports, and more. And, not only that, we talk Mountain Lion — Apple's newest operating system, and the changes in behavior that come from the changing tide of app stores.
Dane wants you all to know that it's Pioneer Day in Utah, though he's not sure what that means, apart from the fact that there will be parades. Further, we talk about movies and releases, along with the future of the box office when all films are rated with a 1.5x factor against the box office of "Piranha 3DD". We also talk about Squarespace v6, how wonderful it is, while it breaks a bunch of stuff we used to love.
Falling right in line with our mission of facilitating genius even in spite of ourselves, this week social support and all-around whiz kid Jason O'Donnell joins us from IBM to talk social strategy, community, tips, and tools. We dig in on practical brand management inside the Facebook universe, and Jason answers, once and for all, whether we should care about Klout.
Pete's back from another trip to Chautauqua, NY and reports on his "Building Your Brand Online" class, some rants about storytelling, and a coda on Apple and EPEAT.
First, and most important, Pete has a new haircut. We talk mostly about cheating, stealing, and Mad Men this week, with a touch of Instapaper's run on Howard Stern, the state of the Live Read Advertisement, and the mispronunciation of eastern lakes.
