@alexlehm you're too kind, Alex. They clearly hired a professional video team (which means they have money to make something good) and gave birth to a dumb concept that may have been funny for 30 seconds if you were really, really high.
It didnt go viral because this video should have never been made.

@KateHall What if the future of blogging looked like this.
Content creators creating content. Content promoters promoting content. Blog technicians handled the technical aspects of setting up a blog. And they all had a stake in the game.
Wouldn't that be an interesting future? :-)

@IleaneWizard – The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla is a great read if you love Tesla as much as I do :-)
I've read books on him, watched documentaries, etc. and yet I've learned so much more from Wizard. I dont get paid to say that either.
@Rick Noblett The paying component is an interesting angle. I ALWAYS charge people for consultations and "lemme pick your brain" sessions.
And here's the funny thing. I dont charge them for my sake. Few hundred buck here and there makes no difference to my bottom line, but it makes a HUGE difference to them. When people pay for information, they pay attention to it, and they execute.
1 month ago on Google Helpouts: A Gamechanger or a Lame Attempt at Relevancy
@Dragon Blogger There's a segment of Triberr population that cant use Triberr comments due to a bug. I'm in that segment :-(
I will definitely be going back to Triberr comments after we update the plugin, but in the meantime, I figured I'd experiment with Livefyre.
I know I like DisqUs, so I havent used LiveFyre in about 2 years, and I decided to see how it changed. So far I'm pleased with it :-)
@RalphMRivera I wondered if they took real Helpouts and turned them into a commercial, or they created fake helpouts just for the ad. Google certainly has the resources to make a real commercial, so thats probably what they did.
Will be interesting to see how this plays out :-)
@wordwhacker The killed app in this case is the real time component. So I think Youtube is safe...for now :-)
@Howie Goldfarb After having a chance to think on this, I'm convinced it has something to do with the World Cup. At least I hope, because having a product behind this will just be lame.
But I think it will just fall apart before it has a chance to make an impact. Will be fun to watch tho :-)

@WomanlyWoman I think I figured out why social interactions drain the crap out of us. It's not the social or the interactions that are the problem. It's the certain types of social interactions.
1. Me talking about me all night long = drain
2. Me listening to someone boring and uninteresting talk about themselves = drain
3. Me listening to someone passionate and interesting talk about ideas they love = charge
Whenever I'm lucky enough to hang with people who are passionate about their ideas, I become energized by it.
And I think most social interactions can be placed into the above 3 categories. Dont you think? :-)

@dessertsreqrd I always tell people to use their blog as a platform to accomplish other things, like speaking gigs, book deals, client leads, etc. And thats a really a great option for the rest of us who are not getting 100s of thousands of visits per post and we cant monetize through ads and similar nonsense.
And for the record, I care about desserts, and by extension, ipso facto, I care about your blog, too :-)
