Richmond Web + Media C3 Roundup: Copeland Casati Media
- My friends Matt and Jen uploaded *crazy* videos of the storm on YouTube and FaceBook
- I breathlessly watched multiple views from the docks at a local marina's web cam, which refreshed every 30 seconds
- Later, a neighbor emailed pictures of the house and my aunt's house so that, even though the road was still flooded and we were unable to reach the house, we could see how we, and other family members and neighbors, fared. (Here's our dock under water, in the picture on the right...)
- And I literally went, "Aaaaaaaa!" when Jen, the pirate bandit she is (that's why we're friends : ) ), sent me this: A video of our house after the storm. And the boat is ok. Even the canoe is still there.
- Not just Microsoft. Not just Google. T'ain't stopping there: Twitter and LinkedIn. Really! (Do we care? Kind of. But not passionately.)
- Right when you got the hang o' twitter lingo and methods, the RT (retweet) evolves. Here's a good article to update you on what's going on: "Retweets Will Never Be The Same (Unless You Want Them To Be)"
- I keep bringing up SideWiki... here's how to keep track of your own site SideWiki via rss.
Again, although I "get" the arguments FOR SideWiki, it just doesn't feel right. I have not seen one use of it in a traditional, wiki, helpful way.
I understand that people talk. And that they talk about your business, and that you need to be out there, engaging them, ensuring you are part of the conversation about your own brand. But shouldn't you have the right to shut the door in your house, on your own site, at the end of the day, to detractors? (Note: SideWiki is through the browser, not actually on the site, but visually it is the same effect.)
I "get it," I really do. But I can't help but wonder what Miss Manners would say.
As Amy agreed, "'If you can't say something nice, at least try not to flame the pants off of them?'"
You know the sayin' about eggs in one basket, right? Well, in the internet world, you always need to look to new markets, new venues, for ways to spread, cull information.
- Here is why Bing and The Wall Street Journal Could Hurt Google.
- Check out Spezify. For someone like myself who uses image search often, it is a site to note. Not just for the results, for seo of your own product.
- A useful search engine API launches today:
Factery Labs Makes Other Search Engines Look Incomplete
P.s. If sustainability and urban chickens interests you, I was quoted in the Richmond Times Dispatch this week on the subject! Take a gander, head over and check out the issue here!
...If you note any trends or local media items of note, feel free to send 'em on!
