I really enjoyed getting to know Melissa during the pre-production, etc., of our webinar. She's amazing! Very happy to see her on the hot seat today! :)
@ginidietrich @JRHalloran Oh, to be 26 again. ;)
@ginidietrich I totally get this. Maybe it's a Canadian thing? LOL She means the socks may both be black (or brown, or grey) but they are from different pairs! Probably because us Canucks are so inclusionary. ;)
I miss video so much. I mean, I would never want to work in TV land again, but man, I really miss video. That's why it's so hard for me to watch most of it (because MOST of it's bad, or filled with mistakes). There's just so much that goes into a good edit - inflection, tone, continuity, making sure your cutaway *actually* works (nothing worse than bad lip flap) - and that's *before* you get to editorial and context and story arc and... Sigh. I really miss video. :)

Jason, you are correct. ALS did not create this challenge. Though, it's history is convoluted, at best. Here's an interesting investigation from Slate, re: the origins of the 'ice bucket challenge' - some go back as far as early 2013. http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/technology/2014/08/who_invented_the_ice_bucket_challenge_a_slate_investigation.html
As for where the money goes, Clay, I think it's safe to say that most if not all charitable orgs use donations to fund their charitable side. BUT, if we're talking about elevating recognition of a relatively obscure illness (I mean, come on - how many tweens and teens had heard of ALS prior to this summer...?), than the IBC campaign sure as heck did that. And that's a very, very good thing.

Too. Much. Data. Though, as a visual learner, who hates numbers, I'll take the visual kind any day! ;)

@ImMarkBernhardt @belllindsay @timfrick HA!
@IndiaAM @biggreenpen @belllindsay @timfrick Thanks for being here!
Well, it's time! Thanks a billion to @timfrick for spending an hour with us today! This has been fantastic.
@timfrick Excellent answer. Much food for thought there.
@ImMarkBernhardt @belllindsay @timfrick Would you say most mobile sites aren't really that pleasing to use, though, Mark...? That's my humble opinion.
@ClayMorgan @Eleanor Pierce @timfrick My dad used to home brew. Scarred me for life.
@timfrick @AlinaKelly That's what I thought you were talking about... ;)
@ImMarkBernhardt LMAO! ;)
We'll be wrapping up very soon, but just so @timfrick knows, people can still come by and comment, up until 11:59 pm in the hopes of winning a book! Last question from me: What’s next for website design?
@AlinaKelly @belllindsay @timfrick Bien sur...!
@timfrick @AlinaKelly I am NOT even going to touch that one. ;)
@ImMarkBernhardt People still phone...?
@timfrick YAY!! You win the internets, today!
@Eleanor Pierce @KateNolan @timfrick Also true.
What is the one thing that every home page should include? #askingforafriend
@timfrick Wildly different areas, topographically speaking.
@Eleanor Pierce @timfrick She is.
@Howie Goldfarb @belllindsay @timfrick @vermontcreamery @ginidietrich HAHAHAHAHA!!!
So, @timfrick - If you could cycle anywhere in the world, where would that be, and why?
@ClayMorgan @timfrick I use Twitter mostly for news now. FB is my "friendly" area, more chatting and networking.
@biggreenpen @Eleanor Pierce @belllindsay See?? We're performing a public service, here! ;)
@timfrick @KateNolan @Eleanor Pierce #insidejoke ;)
@KateNolan @Eleanor Pierce My ignorance has been redeemed.
@timfrick @Howie Goldfarb @ClayMorgan I did TV for 20 years, Tim! I am SO with you on the two to three minute rule!!
@ClayMorgan @belllindsay @Howie Goldfarb Sigh. Some people never learn.
@timfrick @Howie Goldfarb @belllindsay @vermontcreamery Aw, jeeze Tim, now you've done it. Howie'll be all over you!
@ClayMorgan @belllindsay @Howie Goldfarb You should!!! Royals!!
@timfrick @Eleanor Pierce It sounds fantastic, actually. Bet you have NO problem sleeping at night. ;)
@timfrick Also, the MaRS people are amazing.
@timfrick @belllindsay Hmmmm. Should have said "As a 'not very socially conscious' Canadian...." #derp
@timfrick @belllindsay @Howie Goldfarb @ClayMorgan Are you making fun of my use of the word 'espouse'...? ;)
Being Canadian, I had never heard of B-Corp before. It’s very cool. Have you always been a socially conscious guy? How difficult is it to run your company this way?
@ImMarkBernhardt @belllindsay @Eleanor Pierce @timfrick That's our goal! :)
@Howie Goldfarb @belllindsay @timfrick I didn't, actually. Though I did say "we like to have fun"....
@Howie Goldfarb No. I mean Wills and Kate are having another baby!!!
@Eleanor Pierce @belllindsay @Howie Goldfarb It will be richer.
@Howie Goldfarb Waiiiiit a second. There's going to be a NEW Royal Baby!!!!
@Howie Goldfarb @belllindsay @ClayMorgan 100% agree, Howie.
@Eleanor Pierce @timfrick Love it. Great answers Tim, thanks.
