Ep. 164 – Social Media Geeks

TOPIC:  You’d think twittering, facebook, myspace, and other internet “timewasters” would have no place in the business world – well, you might be right!  Jay Garmon sticks around for an extended Geek Trivia talk to discuss his recent presentations in Louisville and tells you the hits – and misses – on the road to awesomeness in your quest for business popularity on the social media scene!

That’s in addition to awesome new geek trivia (check out http://jaygarmon.net for more) Dave and Mike babbling about random news stories and the usual inanity you’ve come to associate with us weekly.

Wouldn’t really be a show without some great cool sites of the week either!

  • Using Google Voice to call from your cell phone for FREE – We love free stuff, and though this might not be a free website per se, it tells you exactly how to enable Google Voice to make free phone calls all day and all night using the ‘fave 5’ and ‘friends and family’ options that most carriers have.  If you’re looking to shave a few bucks off your cell bill this is the way!  Via our good friends at lifehacker.com
  • Microsoft SharedView – Like the idea of ‘GoToMeeting’ but don’t like the sky high cost?  Believe it or not, Microsoft has a perfectly serviceable (up to 15 attendees) and even more perfectly FREE option called SharedView.  Like netmeeting but on steroids. Free steroids, that is!

Feeling a little down and slow this week, so we capped it all off with Rufus Wainright’s “Going to a Town” from his album Release The Stars.
