Friday Frivolity – Web Site Story

Geek dinners tend to resort to nerdy talk about tech news, the latest shiny social media gadget, and the latest social networking stories and stats. In our space, it also tends to turn into a discussion of the latest PR and marketing gaffes. It is called a Geek Dinner, after all.

I was pleased, while in Toronto last week for a vacation with my wife, when she agreed to join me for such a meet up with some of Toronto’s PR and marketing best, Donna Papacosta, Dave Fleet, Martin Waxman, Ed Lee, and fellow FHers David Bradfield and Eden Spodek. It was a blast to meet some of my coworkers face-to-face finally and shake hands with some of my inspirations and corporate rivals. Bonus, my wife even enjoyed it, so she says.

Donna, in addition to organizing the whole thing, tipped me off to this hilarious gem from College Humor that turns West Side Story into…well, I imagine what a Geek Dinner Musical would sound like. Thanks to all for making the trip downtown for the meet up.

Jimmy Eat World Gets Social

Here’s a cool update: I just got a DM on Twitter from @jimmyeatworld “thanks for the nice article! and thanks for listening.” Nice work, guys. I’m hooked.

As a fan of both social media and music, I like to report on outstanding social web exercises. One of my favorite bands, Jimmy Eat World, has been forcing me to engage with them online – and I like it.
