The MediaSnackers Meme #1

scoble

Blogging elite joining the MediaSnackers fold.

(WORLD) Christian Long has been a great advocate of MediaSnackers, posting about our developments and continued growth. His recent post highlighting our MediaSnackers Explained vid (which was embedded in the front page of our site) illustrates, what I call, the ‘digital-ripple effect’.

Robert Scoble is an A-list blogger. He used to work for Microsoft and was one of the first blogging behemoths (he currently works for Podtech). MediaSnackers is honoured he likes our stuff and especially our name:

I like that term. It’s what I’m doing today. Snacking on media.

The start of the MediaSnackers Meme…

UPDATE: The ripple are spreading, check out this great Media Snacking poll from Greg Verdino and also the reference Snacks vs Meals post from Mark Cuban’s.

NOTE TO SELF: Pay more attention to those talking about the MediaSnacking meme :-)

Thanks Christian for starting the ripple.

British Youth Council Training

Short film review of our recent two day youth professionals training course.

(UK) This is a short film review of a two day training course for youth professionals in London for BYC (including staff from Changemakers, Youthnet.org and TimeBank).

The MediaSnackers training workshop provided BYC staff members with crucial knowledge of various media being used today; as well as the confidence to better connect with young people of the UK on their terms and through their preferred mediums of communication. We have had nothing but positive comments back from the youth professionals who attended the workshop regarding DK and Mark, as well as the training in general.
