  14. 14. Leroy  S(ck,  pretending  to   be  BPs  global  press   office,  mocked  their   handling  of  the  New   Orleans  oil  spill•  Raised  $10,000  for  a  non-­‐profit   conserva(on  group,  Gulf  of  Restora(on   Network•  Started  May  19  within  1  month  has   165k+  followers  and  countless   mainstream  coverage
  15. 15. I started @BPGlobalPR, because the oilspill had been going on for almost amonth and all BP had to offer werebullshit PR statements. No solutions, nourgency, no sincerity, no nothing. ‘Treat communication seriously. Treat engagement seriously. Treat your consumer seriously.’ Ruby Psuedo
  16. 16. If you have an idea.Make it.

  25. 25. People would ignore the instructions to aim the Tweenbot in the “right”direction, if it meant sending the robot into a perilous situation. One manturned the robot back in the direction from which it had just come, sayingout loud to the Tweenbot, "You can’t go that way, it’s toward the road.”
  26. 26. On motivation, community & social media1.  It’s easier to accomplish big things if we breakthem into lots of little parts.2.  Psychic rewards are a great motivator.3.  Make it easy and learn to trust the community.4.  Don’t be afraid to ask.5.  Remember that joy and passion are contagious.
  27. 27. Rushkoff’s 10 (well 4) commandments for the digital age1.  Time: dont be always on.  We have lost the benefit of thinkingthat comes from the original nature of the web.2.  Distance: dont do from "afar" (email, texting, 2nd life) whatcan be done in person or close up.7. Contact:  contact, not content, is king.  We are humans.10.  Program or be programmed: When it comes to devices andapps, stop thinking "what can they do for us," and start thinking"what can we make it do."  We dont even teach kids in schoolprogramming languages anymore.  We teach them Microsoftoffice. 
  28. 28. In an industrial economy we focuson physical things. In aninformation economy relationshipsare built on knowledge & services.Positive interactions with brandsallow people to make up theirmind based on experiences, notmessages.
  29. 29. audience communitymessages experiences target invitemedia plan conversation plan penetrate collaborate

  45. 45. "Optimism. If we took the loopiest, most moonbeam-addledCalifornian utopian internet bullshit, and held it up against the most cynical, realpolitik-inflectedscepticism, the Californian bullshit would still be abetter predictor of the future. Which is to say that, if in 1994 youd wanted to understand what our lives would be like right now, youd still be better off reading a single copy of Wired magazine published in that year than all of the sceptical literature published ever since."
