IN THIS EPISODE: – We had a neat surprise today. Thought Jim wasn’t going to make it, but he showed up in New Orleans for a conference where he’s speaking this weekend. So we ended up tackling privacy and talked about Google, Facebook, Skype and related privacy topics for businesses and individuals on the web. Should we be worried? Maybe. Surprised? No!  Also a great tip on testing your market before pulling a “Netflix” on your customers!

I blogged a lot at #SHRM12

I soooo enjoyed myself at #SHRM12, SHRM’s National Conference in Atlanta. I tweeted more than anything else and was later surprised by that stats I generated. (Hat tip to @joelyoh) During my time at #SHRM12, I tweeted more than anyone else (369 tweets), my tweets were the most popular (retweeted 277 times) and collectively generated 5.3 million impressions. Wowzers! I guess I was more into it than I thought I was. (Smile) Below is a screenshot of the stats (click for an even better look) and here is a link to where I got it from. Just felt like sharing…
