General Podcast Discussion  - 
I've spent the afternoon reading about this new measurement tool with +Triton Digital and Edison Research. While I applaud their efforts to put together another podcast metric system, I have to wonder if this is a "For Sale Only, closed wall environment going after the Carola size podcasts and basically ignoring the little guys" metric system. 

After all, spending millions of dollars on those podcasters who don't spend even $500 on their shows is not going to make your money back...

Yes, I've been too busy to blog lately, but it's for a very good reason. We put out a press release today. Now normally, I don't get all that worked up about a press release. But this one is different, because it's personal. And yes, I'm pretty excited about it. Today, my company announced that we are partnering with Triton Digital on a new audience measurement system for podcasts. I'm a bit giddy about this, though my press-release-...

Question of the Day - Backup Plan So I don't expect Google Communities to disappear, but if they did, where should this group set up camp? I didn't want to do Facebook - especially since there are a lot of them out there already. LinkedIn is in a weird growing pain. 

Is there another place where this community could live? If I created a BB Forum, would people go and sign up?

I would encourage you not to rule out Facebook. Anything that requires me to use a network I don't already regularly use is likely to fall by the wayside.

After the Sponsorship issues that arose and many confused what that meant, I put together this video hopefully explaining it better. Of course, its all my interpretation to what I read from the guidelines and can change at any moment.

This week on +Wearable Today - +Luke Wallace and I talk about how a Moto 360 was connected to an Apple iPhone. Can the same thing happen for an Apple Watch to an Android smartphone? Will it require a jailbreak? 

We are also looking for someone to talk Apple Wearables on the show. If you can commit to a Monday night schedule (8:30 PM EST start time), let me know!

BTW - thanks to +Eric forty for being part of the show this week via the Q&A section!

One of my favorite spots to get work done. Great food (Sonoma Chicken Sandwich is one of my favs), many choices of coffee and tea. Yola's is also active in Social Media Breakfast, so it's a destination to meet with clients and interact. WiFi is free and a little more secure than the others around Madison. Staff is friendly and will help you if you need it. Walk up and say hi to Lance and Lisa.

Awesome pizza, and many good extras! If you want a specialty pizza like the Margarita, Chicken Alfredo, etc. They are the place to go. If you order online, the system is a little buggy. I had to restart my pizza order a couple times. There was no way to delete the order otherwise.

Just was over there. Awesome store, fresh look. If you go to the mall for Apple help, you might be sitting for a while because it's always busy. But by coming over here, you are able to surpass the crowd and get one-on-one support.

I enjoy AJ Bombers burgers whenever I can. They have some great twists on the craft of making a hamburger, and their other sandwiches are pretty tasty, too. Need some peanuts? Their bombers can get you a bowlfull in a jiffy. And they're a lot of fun to watch.
