Do messages to multiple addressees still have the option to hide everyone's name apart of course from that of each individual receiving the message?

I just started a message, put some names in, started the text, but no box appeared at the bottom for me to uncheck.

What re-use/distribution rights do you require from podcast show guests?

Today I accepted an invitation to be a guest on a local podcast show. An email confirming the date and time included the following:
________________
By participating in the interview, you agree to allow (company) to record, distribute, and disseminate the podcast in any manner. You also agree to allow (company) to retain rights to the produced media for potential future use in speeches, books, and in all other public distribution.
_______________
I understand the efficiency of getting this commitment in advance. However, especially as the interviewer is not someone I know, it inclines me to say no.

Thoughts/ shares?

With a bunch of others I've taken up a blogging challenge that has me posting every day for a week. Not onerous for some but I'm out of practice. The challenge from Problogger +Darren Rowse is "Find Your Blogging Groove" - or "re-find" for me. Post #2 had me re-focusing on who my ideal client/target market it and how I find and connect with them on LInkedIn.

More about the Challenge (not too late to join) at Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/737221239714666/

It's not the blogging that does me in. It's all the reposting, sharing, promotion, social media, and all the other stuff that is so time consuming.

I just changed the iTunes cover art for a client's podcast, via PowerPress. The change is there in the feed xml but has not shown up yet, several hours later, on iTunes. Anyone know how long such a change would usually take to kick in on iTunes?

Des, did you contact Apple about the issue and did they get back to you with the reason why this is happening?

Looks like I need a micro to mini usb cable to connect my Gear VR to my Samsung Galaxy. Is that the right specification or do I need something more specific. Frustrating as I was planning to take this to a local tech meeting tonight, but at least I would like to know what I need to buy at some point to be able to use the device. And wouldn't you have thought they could have tossed one in? First time I have ever needed one.

If the global nonprofit sector were a country, it would be the 16th largest economy. In 2012 alone it contributed $878 billion to the US economy alone (world Bank data). So leadership of nonprofits would be a big deal, right? You might think so, but if so why so little research?

I was just now told about Squarespace podcast hosting as part of its blog hosting service. As far as I can gather from the website it allows an unspecified number of file uploads as long as each is no larger than 160 Mb.

I'm not thinking of switching but I am curious, especially for when someone asks me about options. Anyone have experience with/ knowledge of this?

I wouldn't use sq for anything. I like WP but regardless when it comes to hosting it's always better to use a hosting service specific to podcasting. That is if you plan on growing.

I may have spoken too soon. After problems today with Skype+Pamela I'm thinking seriously of switching to use Zoom or another platform for recording.
 
Did my first podcast interview using Skype and Pamela. I did my editing using Sony Acid Pro. I've got a little tweaking to do but I thought it turned out pretty well.

I'm no expert on either Salesforce or MS Dynamics. What do your crystal balls say, O Experts, about the potential impact of the Microsoft+LinkedIn move (could we have an acronym for that? MLM? Maybe not.) on Salesforce. I've seen a couple of passing references in the past 24 hours but not enough detail for me to really get a handle on it.

Is the character limit for a LinkedIn summary still fixed at 2,000 (with spaces)? I've seen at least one which is well over that limit.

Has the Pulse interface changed?

I use Pulse weekly to pick up interesting posts, especially about social business. Today I opened Pulse and all I can see is a Daily Digest, which from the category/people links looks like it has been selected for my known preferences/connections. But I can't anymore see the left sidebar menu with various categories: as you will see from the screenshot there is just a blank where there was a sidebar. And there is no search feature.

So I don't get to see a bunch of posts under one category and I don'g get to browse. Progress?
