TWiSM – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

This Week in Social Media

Another weekly episode of This Week in Social Media on Mountain FM with the awesome, lovely and clearly very smart for having me as a regular guest – Sabrina Pearson.

The topic – the good, the bad and the ugly. Here is the audio from the interview (note how much joy I bring to Sabrina’s life):

THE GOOD

UBC economics major and current law student Chris Thompson’s awesome Fight Fight HST video. Grass roots at it’s finest, this one video has almost DOUBLE the views than ALL the BC Government Youtube videos combined and it really annoyed former Premier.

Here is a link to my blog piece on Chris’ video and below are Chris’ video and then a short clip of Vander Zalm slamming the “lawyer student” for his video…which he has not seen.

THE BAD

Guy gets on Skytrain with sword, acts weird, people Tweet out this guy’s behaviour, take photos, cops arrive, hilarity ensues and is captured for Youtube glory. Two clips below.

THE UGLY

Ontario politician George Lepp has some interesting reasons how a photo of his genitals ended up being Tweeted out to the world this past weekend. I do not believe him and frankly, he just got caught with his pants down.

(wait for laughter to subside)

Checkout the piece I wrote on this plus my attempt to duplicate this 21st century “junk mail”. (the laughter will be deafening at this point so best end the post)
