Welcome to episode #169 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. Two of the regular co-hosts of Media Hacks are Chris Brogan and Julien Smith. After meeting at the first PodCamp Boston, the two decided to write a book together. The result is Trust Agents. The book - which was released this week - made it to the New York Times' best-seller's list. Not only are we all very proud of the co-authors, but we decided to spend the bulk of this episode discussing and dissecting the concepts in Trust Agents. We also wish C.C. Chapman tons of continued success on his recent news (you have to listen to hear what it is). Enjoy the conversation...
