37 Signals Karl Rove Attack Video

My good friend Jason Fried of 37 Signals never ceases to amaze me. Not only is he a highly successful software entrepreneur, celebrated public speaker, design fanatic, tea nut and all-round renaissance man, he has an uncanny ability to generate buzz about his company and its products. Now he is a best-selling author along with his partner David Heinemeier for their most recent business book “Rework” which is currently number 11 in sales on Amazon.

Jason and his team noticed that Karl Rove’s book was ahead of them in sales, so they made the “attack video” above. Very funny, clever and already has over 31,000 hits on YouTube.

Fried does it again.

Never heard of Gary Vaynerchuk? He is a god, and he’s from New Jersey no less. Oh, he knows wine too. Chateau Latour? No Prob. Margeaux? Ditto. CAA reps him. Watch his speech – a great example how being focused in a niche business/topic on the web can reap big rewards. Luv ya Gary. Go Jets!

Is Posterous the Future of Social Media?

Posted: July 16th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Social Media | | No Comments »

I am now on Posterous.com thanks to Paul Gillin who wrote: “Steve Rubel, a public relations social media visionary whom I profiled in New Influencers, recently announced that he’s abandoning his blog in favor of a lifestream. Steve is at the extreme edge of social media activity, so his experience isn’t typical, but I think his point bears considering. He’s saying that the action now takes place in so many nooks and crannies of the Internet that a website is, at best, merely a place to pull them all those activities together. Our own online presence is too expansive to be confined to one place.”
