Geeks dig him, both guys and gals alike, probably because he never makes fun of anyone, no matter how dumb the question. And, he is rarely stumped ("Let's ask the chat room"). Leo Laporte is just as friendly and personable live as he is on the radio, although a tiny bit more sarcastic. But, to be honest not as sexy in person, as his voice sounds (okay, a tiny bit disappointing).
Here are the three big things I got from Leo's talk:
- He uses a Samsung Galaxy (just like Guy Kawasaki),
- Leo believes brands will continue to turn to niche content creators for endorsement (a trend that was prevalent in 2012 and is great for bloggers, videographers & podcasters alike),
- He thinks old media has finally figured out that the mid-century formula of "put it on TV and they will come" has bad ROI in this day and age. And, Leo built his own studio to prove it (similar to Guy Kawasaki and his book self-publishing).
On to the Help Us Pick a Masthead Contest from last week. And, the winner is Terry Buckner! Trouble is, Terry's blogger profile does not have an email addres (waaah, waaah, waaah, waaaah). So Terry, if you are out there, email me your address and claim your beautiful mid-century modern vase firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don't here from Terry within a week, I shall draw again!
And, thank you, everyone for the masthead feedback. It was very specific and quite helpful. Crowd sourcing works! And drum roll. If we take our mastheads strictly in the order of voting...
#1 Squares & Atomic (way out in front)
#2 Chairs (nearly tied with #3)
#3 Chair Legs (nearly tied with #2)
#5 Clock and Chairs
Our Graphic Designer is taking all the suggestions into account and coming back with her revisions. Yay.
And, we'll get back to our regular programming tomorrow with another fabulous Vegas Mid-Century Vegas shop of retro-ocity. Stay tuned.
