RSS and Blogging on CNBC and in Fortune

Comments (6)

RSS and Blogging are starting to permeate mainstream media.  It’s both a blessing and a curse when something makes the front cover of the major business rags.  In this case, we’re still so early on the adoption curve that these major press mentions are good early indicators that RSS / Blogging is growing real roots.

CNBC’s segment is two minutes long and was at the tail end of Closing Bell a week ago.  The segment was an introduction to RSS and features NewsGator / Greg Reinacker and Yahoo! / Scott Gatz.

The Fortune article – Why There’s No Escaping the Blog – is a big one full of good stuff including mentions our of companies Technorati and NewsGator.  In the “best quote in the article” category, we have Steve Hayden, vice chairman of Oglivy & Mather, saying “If you fudge or lie on a blog, you are biting the karmic weenie.  The negative reaction will be so great that, whatever your intention was, it will be overwhelmed and crushed like a bug. You’re fighting with very powerful forces because it’s real people’s opinions.”

Karmic weenie – perfect – I wish I’d said that.

    Greg Reinacker got in the best quote in the CNBC piece: “First there was email, then there was the web. Now there’s RSS.”

    Hi,
    Global economies are feeling pain due to USA recession and now major outcomes are coming to prevent slowdown. Still USA is a hub of financial services and most of the banks in USA are bank corrupt now which is effecting every country.
    Indian stock market is trading at the almost same levels where it was 2 years back. All gains of 2 years are now washed out in few months. Most of the Indian stocks are trading at there 52 weeks low.

    Now investors are thinking that this is the right time to invest there valuable money for value buying still we suggest investors to stay away from market for few more days as still market is in bearish trend and we may witness more downfall before recovery.

    For any doubt please feel free to ask us.

    Thanks
