Thoughts on the Social Media Club meeting

by Rusty Tanton, May 31, 2007 - 9:35am

Show notes

Amber, SpaceyG and I attended the Social Media Club meeting deep inside WSB headquarters last night. Contained in this podcast are our reactions recorded on our roof later in the evening after a few beers at Central City Tavern.

In attendance at the meeting to bore us with institutional history and tell us kids how we are "irresponsible," "unprofessional," and lacking "journalistic standards" were the AJC's Marlon Manuel and WSB's Steve Riley. Can't say that this podcast will do much to change that perception, but hey, fuck 'em.

This is a fantastic podcast, folks. I really, really enjoyed hearing your thoughts and recap.

I think the dinosaurs who defend their entrenched, outdated model will eventually figure it out. Until then, they'll act as all entrenched, outdated businesses do. They'll treat you like three-year-olds and sneer at you as they run Jamal Albarghouti's footage for hours, start hiring bloggers, and then eventually pretend that social media was all their idea in the first place.

On that day, I'll come back and listen to this podcast and laugh even harder.

They can claim to be the second coming, but we'll be right there to call 'em out... or podcast it at least!
