Radio Roundtable regulars Chip Griffin and Jen Zingsheim were both unavailable this week, leaving the Roundtable discussion in some rather questionable hands as I take on hosting duties and Luke Armour and Paul Young joined the chat.
Up for discussion this week:
New multimedia chat service ooVoo – Sarah gives a rundown of its functionality based on the numerous blog reviews she has read, while Paull and Luke note that excellent marketing campaign that created so much buzz around the service by Crayon. will they service and that being just the latest “cool thing” that creates buzz for only a short amount of time and then dies off? Or is it here to stay?
Shel Holtz’s recent post on corporate social website mashups – Is it truly inevitable that corporate websites will eventually incorporate (no pun intended) social networks into their interfaces as they have done with blogs? Sarah wonders if it isn’t a better strategy to get involved in the networks that are already in existence rather than trying to build your own, and Paull points out that building your own network might work best for those interested in reaching out to specific niche.
Juicycampus.com – We ended the show with a spirited debate about the reaches of the First Amendment. A salacious gossip website has been infiltrating college campuses across the country with scandalous message board posts that many fear will impact their online reputations. Paul disagrees with Sarah and Luke regarding the impact of such a site, arguing that it will likely die off in just a few weeks.
