Media Hacks

New Thinking on New Media from More Mouths.


Another fine mess that we’ve gotten ourselves into. This is the new episode of Media Hacks and features some great conversation and some coloured language (so, it’s not work safe). We discuss everything from buying ads on viral videos before they break big and how things spread (and how fast they go away). Do brands still need to worry about what people are saying about them online? Enjoy the conversation…

    Welcome to episode #9 of Media Hacks. Somehow we managed to get the whole gang together for a brand new episode of Media Hacks. There was tons of rambling, debate and back and forth on why ideas spread, what really worries us about the coming year, and the power of education (and why it’s in need of immediate repair). Enjoy the conversation…
