With Friends Like These…

Before the now defunct social network Friendster ever had a chance to become part of my mother-in-law’s vernacular, voila – it’s gone.

Check out this article at Slate (http://www.slate.com/id/2212833/) which didn’t really explain how it happened that every Friendster user just up and left…but did mention, what I like to call the “Spam-bot Factor”.

Have you ever gotten those annoying friend requests on Myspace from women named Candi or HottieXXX, subject line: Hot Naked Pics!? That’s the “Spam-bot Factor”.

When thousands of fake accounts claiming they can make you millions within days or get you laid within minutes invade Facebook what will replace it??  Perhaps more actual “face” time with actual “friends” – now wouldn’t that be novel?

New Media Vs. Analog Adguys

I recently attended the Chicago New Media Summit in search of new knowledge about my field and was sorely disappointed when the first day ended up being one long tutorial session for *coughs uncomfortably* matureseasoned...old people. There….I said it. (BUT LET ME EXPLAIN before you close this window and start sending me hate mail)

The summit was kind of negs on Chicago youth in media. One speaker said, and I quote, “the youth need to be held back a bit”…hmmm….I’m 24….does that make me “the youth”? Do I need to be held back?

It was also funny and sad to see a bunch of aging men from the adworld’s “good ole days” talking about “the facebook” and how it’s going to be a tool in changing the face of media.

The second day was pretty cool though! Lots of Web 2.5 talk and we all know how much I love that. Miguel Gonzalez of DraftFCB gave a session on viral branding and new technologies for advertising which was very informative and engaging. And my friend Jim Marcus of Ogilvy was there for a segment on the 2016 Olympic bid, in which he gave a little shout out to Foundation for shooting a video for the bid. =)

All in all, I’d give the summit a thumb up for the networking and a few good speakers and a thumb down for the bizarro ageism.

Jeff Landsman managed to join me for part of the first day. Jeff made the times when I was bored out of my mind, after hearing four speakers refer to “Blogger” as a “cutting edge” blogging tool, a little more entertaining.

Oh and btw, have you ever heard of Daisy Whitney’s “new media minute”? If not…look it up on youtube…and tell me you wouldn’t LOVE to see a parody?! Puh-Leeze!

Twitter Rant

Okay…first of all…I don’t know where I am half the time so why does everyone else need to know? Secondly, the whole idea of “following” people is bogus and sad. Thirdly, if I were a serial killer I would probably use Twitter to locate and track my potential victims…Is it creepy that my mind goes there?

Thumbs down on Twitter.

Oh wait…I have a fourth reason…And here to help me explain is the lovely and hilarious Lisa Nova…

Reason #4: You may turn into a Twitter whore.

TTYL!
