HEY! This Is Important: Vol. 9

HEY! This Is Important is a (semi) weekly series in which I examine developments in the past week that impact internet culture.


Scott Dadich, EIC of WIRED, released a fascinating memo on office cleanliness, revealing himself to be a total lunatic. I guess we should have seen this coming.

Getting Social With Small Business: Content, Community and World Domination

I recently spoke at a fantastic workshop put on by Fikriyyah George – the thinker and doer behind Brooklyn’s own SUPER HARBOR.

We covered a lot of ground in this presentation:

-figuring out which channels make sense for which businesses
-how to establish metrics and track your progress
-what a content strategy looks like, and where inspiration comes from

Why Streaming Music Makes Me Sad

Tunes, it seems, have finally become entrenched in the cloud. Why download and store your music locally when subscription services (either very inexpensive, or based on incessant, obnoxious social media posts) ? I’ll admit it: Pandora is awesome. Rhapsody has a huge library and catchy TV advertising. Spotify has the ability to annoy me. YouTube seems to have just about everything.

I know the inextricable march of technology pauses for no man. I understand streaming is a superior music delivery, but it mostly makes me sad.
