Chatting social media on the Webconomist show

Several weeks back, Giles Crouch was kind enough to have me on the Webconomist show, live on  For those who don’t know about haligonia, they are “…a new and local online broadcaster that combines internet and television media with reality style shooting. We’re all about instant local gratification”. And well, who can’t get behind instant local gratification?

What follows is a rather meandering, two-part chinwag surrounding social media for the most part. It was good to meet the folks at haligonia and the interview was fun – thanks Giles!  All of that to say, while I enjoyed it, your experience may well vary. In that event, give this Rory Sutherland TED Talk a try instead (HT @joelkelly).
