And, NO, I'm not talking about Accountable, Bold, Collaborative and Diverse.
At Digipalooza, the Digital Mavens, digital delegates and all in attendance
had a great opportunity to learn about digital and social media...yada, yada,
yada...you already knew that right? If you didn't, check out the 800,000
live posts Niall Cook wrote on the subject
while we were there. Good stuff. Surprised his comp didn't light on
fire from all that typing...
Digipalooza was about allowing mavens to develop their own analyses as much
as it was about learning from existing ones. In order to do that, I'm
first going to share the A-B-C and D's of Digipalooza. These are
links to engaging digital content we looked at during the 8 HOURS of
presentations and they're awesome. If I haven't lost you after
looking at all those humorous videos, challenging crises and rather bizarre Web
sites, jump to the final paragraph for one lingering thought.

Okay, we'll pretend that the Digipalooza alphabet only has 21 letters :P
Truthfully, I don't have a favorite. But I do have a theory.
Since it needs a cool, generic name like "Freakonomics" or "The
Tipping Point," and is currently nothing more than a skeletal thought
bubble, it'll have to wait until next post before seeing the light of day.
