Media Hacks Audio Podcast #20 Is Live (And Live From New York City)

Episode #178 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It's also episode #20 of Media Hacks.

This episode was recorded live in New York City. In a very rare moment, the entire Media Hacks crew - Chris Brogan, C.C. Chapman, Christopher S. Penn, Julien Smith and myself (with the exception of Hugh McGuire) - converged in New York City for the Web 2.0 Expo (and Web 2.Open). Wednesday night after dinner, we all met up at the Roger Smith Hotel (in Julien's chambers) and recorded the following rambles, tangents, swear words and non-relevant-to-marketing conversations. That being said, it got interesting, we wavered, we switched, we debated and we made a ton of inside jokes. In the end, the conversation looks at the audience, the new media and those swimming in the deep end of it all. Enjoy the conversation (but keep in mind this is not work safe)...

    Great episode. It's nice to hear everyone back together again and having fun. It was also nice to hear the variety of opinion (and downright disagreement) on things like the value of Twitter. No echo chamber on Media Hacks, that's for sure...

    I was excited and humbled at the end of the show to hear my question about 'community' come up. Wow! Again, the discussion showed a range of ideas which was nice.

    I'm probably more in the Seth Godin / Chris Brogan camp of defining a community as a group of people with a common goal or purpose who work together to move the goal forward.

    I see that very clearly in Brogan,Penn and Seth's work -- they are growing their influence and businesses and developing a movement at the same time (around social media marketing, internet marketing and leadership respectively)

    I don't see it in Hugh's, CC's or your work as much but that's more because I'm not in the agency / publishing world. I'm more of an curious observer. I'll bet you can't see the movement happening if you're not fully part of the community.

    Maybe that's fodder for another post: How has the Six Pixels community changed the world? :)

    I completely agree with the sentiment that communities need a leader. Otherwise it's a mob. Maybe that's the problem with the Twitter backchannel at conferences. In the moment where someone is speaking, the backchannel becomes the mob and community breaks down.

    Can't wait till the next Media Hacks. Thanks for leading it.

    On the "Twitter at conference" topic -- Scott has a good perspective on this:
