Social Media Articulated

I’ve been thinking/saying something like this for a while…but never got it articulated like this. From My Infocalypse

Social media is just humanity, magnified by technology, and not an industry or ’space’.

At time I’ve pulled my hair out because of how people either mis-used or forgot the ‘social’ in Social Media (treated it too much like another channel) and didn’t stop to consider that the ‘media’ was the conversation…not some type of published content (like in the traditional magazine sense).

When will pressure change behavior? Pushing a message to the obvious.

Some quick thoughts on my bus ride in this morning…

When will gas prices and economic pressures change peoples behavior?
Maybe I’m just been looking in the wrong places but I would have thought by now we would been reading studies and stories about how Americans are changing their driving behaviors. Or I would have more bus friends. I’m just not seeing it, wondering when the tipping points hits and what it will be.

Messages to the obvious. I know having peace marches is important…but having them in the middle of Uptown Minneapolis is preaching to the crowd. How about peace marches is the middle of a suburb neighborhood where people need to think about it. I think about advertising this way…who do we really need to show our message to.

Call for Pecha Kucha entries (help)

I’m getting a Pecha Kucha night up going in Minneapolis. If you are interested in helping (or even presenting) drop me a line. What is Pecha Kucha? From the Pecha Kucha website

What is Pecha Kucha Night?

Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

Started by architects and designers. Below is an example from slideshare…but probably doesn’t do justice without the narrative to go along with it. Pass the word on to anyone who you think might be interested.
