On Inside PR 368, +Gini Dietrich  tells +Joseph Thornley and me me why #SpinSucks. You can listen...and then...check out Gini's book.

I may be biased, but I found it a great read with lots of cautionary examples and cases - all told in Gini's inimitable voice.

Do boomer view social media the way boomer's parents viewed rock n roll? Here's my take via +SpinSucks... 
 
+Martin Waxman doesn't think social media's a fad ... but there are plenty of boomers who do ... (Including, perhaps, Jerry Sienfeld)
Do some boomers view social media and mobile technology the way their parents viewed rock and roll? Have you turned into your parents?

#SXSW, PressFriendly and video spokespersons who might do better as cats...or maybe not. That's what +Gini Dietrich, +Joseph Thornley and I talk about on Inside PR 367.

Have you ever produced a video that surprised you and actually went viral? We'd love to hear your stories.

There's always so much content, creativity, insights and ideas at +SXSW. And what an opportunity to meet smart people.

Here's my recap.

Did you attend? What stood out for you?
