Introducing friday flakes



We're going to try this podcast thing. Here's our goal:
+ A quick ten minute-ish clip from the makers of Brand Flakes for Breakfast.
+ Hosted each week by two Plaid employees, and posted every Friday.
+ A little bit about the industry, cool stuff we've noticed, and life at Plaid.
+ Un-rehearsed, quick and dirty, no editing, just sit down and chat.

Our first episode is above. This week, we talk about:
+ Returning from a long, long holiday break.
+ CES and MacWorld
+ Robert Scoble stuck on a bus.
+ David Armano makes social media magic.

And we highlight three posts we thought were interesting this week:
- A cool way to do testimonials
- Some new thinking on "free"
- How not to be a tweetscumbag

We've already torn the first episode to pieces and know what we'll do better next week. This is absolutely a work in progress. But what about you? What should we do more of? Less of? Get better at?

Alexa is a very important benchmark to determine the rankings and traffic of sites. Google is placed at the 2nd position as per Alexa rankings and traffic rankings and is facing tough competition from Live.com and of course Yahoo.

Congratulations on an awesome inaugural podcast! Friday Flakes will obviously be a new weekly habit for me.

And thank you for the shout-out! That was an added surprise bonus!

Friday Flakes is great. I couldn't help but wonder while the podcast was going... how is the phone in between you guys going to come in play with all this? Anyway... enjoyable watch, though, as a side note, I did have to crank up my volume a bit.

Thanks for the peek into what sparks you. Haribo gummies?
David - Good job on the haircut - way to be prepared for the first day of school! It doesn't suck, totally.
I have to second the comment about bumping up the volume.
Hope to see more next week!!
