ooVoo – an example of what it can look like

Those of you who are thinking of dabbing in video might like to watch the movie Joe Jaffe took of the brief call he and I enjoyed the other day, whilst he was en route to somewhere. For reasons that are technically way beyond me (I’m still banging the rocks together, guys), I cannot screen […]

Women: they are such sublimely beautiful creatures

And here’s a very clever 2:52 video to prove the point. With a few famous paintings and clever morphing software the mesmerising beauty of the more graceful half of humankind comes fully to the fore. Vive la difference! Hat tip to Sharon Cartwright for the link

Man in black and my friend Mitch Joel and his buddy David Usher have put together a parody of the now-famous Macbook Air ad from Apple, showing off the assets of the Sony Vaio ultra-portoable notebook

  My colleague-in-arms Leesa Barnes (author of Podcasting for Profit) has organised the first Telesummit on Social Media for 2008 (that I am aware of). Leesa has kindly given me access to it so that I can ‘live blog’ some of the sessions. Thanks, Lisa! The Telesummit will take place between 20th and 28th Feb, […]

My ooVoo Day is where you can meet and chat with bloggers on video, starting in one day, three hours, 42 minutes and 43 seconds as I type this, and going for a week (so why is it a ‘Day’???). My ooVoo Day is a week-long experiment in blogger-to-fan interaction. Notable bloggers (aka ‘bloglebrities’) from […]

Courtesy of Michael Netzley in Singapore comes timely word about the dangers of blogging, especially if you are a male. Yossi Vardi gives an excellent, very serious presentation about the health risks involved with blogging. As he asks, “Help fight local warming.” Many thanks to Michael for unearthing this important health message. Technorati tags: yossi […]

Interviewed by Shel Israel

As part of his pan-global research on behalf of SAP, I was recently interviewed over email by the legendarious (I love creating neologisms*) Shel Israel. True to form, I don’t pull any punches on what I see happening in ‘Business Australia’ regarding social media… Please note: Shel inadvertently put my very old blogspot url up […]

Mitch Joel and his team at TwistImage in Montreal have outdone themselves with this year’s Christmas Card. Twelve luminaries from various disciplines share their top video of 2007 — compelling watching. Speaking of compelling watching: David Jones (vice president, digital communications at Hill & Knowlton in Toronto) sent me the link to a client’s Christmas […]

A ‘Social Media’ rulebook: yes or no?

by Lee Hopkins on December 14, 2007 · 5 comments

in Uncategorized

The wise Chip Griffin has started a fabulous meme over on his Media Bullseye site. Chip argues persuasively for the ‘throwing out’ of the ‘rules’ we leading-edge social mediarists have sometimes insisted be followed. As Chip says, I’m here to tell you that most of the rules are bunk, and we as an industry to […]
