Talk Show Launches On Tumblr Shot Entirely On iPhones…By The Guests

Talk Show Launches On Tumblr Shot Entirely On iPhones…By The Guests | Best of Social Media Tools, Tips & Resources | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Megan O'neill in Socialtimes today. It should be very interesting to watch it's progress, if it's successful, lots of new and creative shows could emerge on Tumblr as a result.

 

Intro:

 

"What happens when two guys that are constantly wearing plaid shirts get together for a few beers? Well, they come up with the idea to do a talk show all about plaid that’s shot entirely on iPhones, of course".

 

The show is called Plaid Forever and it launched today on Tumblr.

 

Plaid Forever is the brainchild of Michael Krivicka of Thinkmodoand his friend Andrew—two plaid loving guys that live in New York. Michael told me via email, “It all started with Andrew and I.

 

We are great friends and are constantly wearing plaid shirts. One day we thought: let’s do a plaid themed website! The idea was very broad at first and then we narrowed it down to a talk-show type format that will live on the web.”They launched the show today.

A Great Way To Curate Your Newsletter: Handpick

A Great Way To Curate Your Newsletter: Handpick | Best of Social Media Tools, Tips & Resources | Scoop.it

Handpick is a great new service which allows you to curate a set of selected links to send out each day/week to your favorite groups of fans.

 

Though the use of a simple browser bookmarklet you can easily pick and save all of the most interesting resources and then have them sent out to your relevant subscribers.

 

How it works: "When you find a link you want to share, you click it, and it pops up a simple form for a title, link, description and a checklist of recipient groups you've created.

 

When you click 'share,' it doesn't buzz all your friends' phones right away. It collects links for you all day and sends an email digest to each group in the evening."

 

"Recipients of your Handpick links only get one message, and it arrives late in the day, when there's more time for thinking.

 

You create groups of contacts using whatever criteria you choose, and each group gets one message around 5 p.m. Pacific Time.

 

It has support for desktop and iPhone browser bookmarklets, a Chrome extension, and it can link with Instapaper."
