I know you’re not supposed to swear at your customers, but there are tons of times you really want to, right? At the Dreamforce 2013 conference in San Francisco, where I was reporting for Get Satisfaction, I asked attendees, “When is the best time to swear at your customers?” Watch their answers. I’m sure you’ll be amused.
This week I joined comedian Mike Spiegelman, host of “Hanging with My Tweeps,” for a conversation about hoaxes. Mike and I go way back to the late 90s when I was still doing stand up comedy.
The conversation was around an article I wrote last week, “The Hoax is the New Viral, and it Infuriates Us.” I took the side that it’s just an interesting form of storytelling, and Mike argued that it’s not a story once it’s revealed because the story eventually becomes about the perpetrator of the hoax. For 23 minutes it’s a really good argument. Watch.
