Most of our listeners will already know of our two theme nights, Moronic Monday and Techmeme Friday, but tonight we are starting the third of our theme nights. On this, and future Wednesday Sean and I will be bringing you some of the coolest things we have found in tech for the previous week and sharing them with you.
We are really looking forward to doing these shows because as much fun as picking on people and stupid tech news might be, we wanted to also celebrate the good stuff out there.
In some ways this could have been a Moronic Monday show given that we ended up talking about some really stupid things that everyone is getting all excited about even though we’re not sure why. A bonus for Sean was that he could tell me that it’s all because it’s Apple – which seems to becoming his favorite saying.
Sean may hate Moronic Monday’s because of the damage he says it does to what remains of his brain but I think he’s lying. In fact I think he lives for Moronic Monday’s, just like our faithful listeners do but we’ll let him keep believing that if it makes him feel like he is in a safe place.
I like Chris Brogan. He’s a smart dude who writes some pretty clever stuff that sounds really good – like this
But what you’re selling is more business. What you’re selling them is more connected business. What you’re selling them, one hopes, is human business.
Problem is, business isn’t about being human. It’s about (con)vincing us to buy their product or service. That’s the reality and all the Twitter chatter in the world and all the Facebook fan page fawning isn’t going to change that.
It’s basic business 101 – do whatever you have to in order to get the chumps to buy the goods.
Hey, like this post? Why not share it with a buddy?
This has to be consider one of those non sequitur type shows where everything stems from tech talk but has absolutely nothing to with tech – well at least the closer we get to the end. From dead kid in the street to sneaky quadrotors to really bad tacos we cover it all not to mention that Sean gets his revenge and blinds me with a website so bad that it is actually awesome in a GeoCities way.
Wow what a change. Tonight’s show has both Sean and myself actually really liking something that happened to. However don’t get your hopes up that this is a new theme because we also found something (or a couple of things) that really irritated us – so not all is lost.
Both Sean and I talk about the frenzy that occurred this morning after some photos of a HPOA appear on the web that supposedly illustrated a woman quitting her job. Neither one of us felt that everything was copesetic about the story or the so-called unhappy employee. Time will tell but were pretty sure this is a prank that will come back to bite someone on the ass.
