Connected Marketing interview with Justin Kirby
I also used to run a little site called Greylodge. You may have heard of it.
Our Greylodge/GSpot kudos:
MSNBC says: “Check out their whole podcasting section, there’s some really good stuff there.”
Wall Street Journal says: ” It’s the latest reflection of an online culture where fans can function as curators of digital entertainment, bypassing libraries and museums with their own collections of music or movies.”
Boing-Boing says: “Greylodge regularly posts links to cool arty stuff on YouTube and elsewhere.wow. Subscribe to their video linkdump RSS feed.”
Ubuweb : “... is pleased to announce our new alliance with the incredible avant-garde resource GreyLodge…”
MetaFilter: ” Dang, GLOR gets better every issue.“
