A Day of Publications and Media Attention
I, personally, have never competed in a “World” anything… so I tip my hat. Way to go, Matt!
That last link should have some video of him in action. As does this earlier blog entry, when a bunch of us went to get get served by the barista-master himself.
On a related note, Johnny B was the DJ who had Sumo Wrestlers in the Conference Room.
We got news, a few weeks back, that Rey and Deb (my bosses at work) got interviewed for a piece in Billboard Radio Monitor. We saw a few advance copies (black and white), but it wasn’t until today that I saw the real deal.
Check it out – “the Rockstars of Emmis Interactive.” Awesome! :)
Shot of the article itself. Pretty awesome press, and what makes it even cooler is that I was involved in several of the projects they mentioned in the article.
What a nice ego boost, and a nice boon for our division. Dare I hope for the day when some magazine, somewhere, decides to publish a big group photo? We need to get ourselves over to Sears, and get one of those “Family Photo” package deals, soon.
We were talking a bit, at the end of the day, about our recent iTunes Music Store launch. Rey mentioned the longer, on-air spot they were playing in New York on Hot97 (with Jay-Z), but none of us had really heard it. So we all went into Rey’s office, where he turned up the speakers and gave us a listen:
We also ended up doing a few quick searches, and found a bunch of links about the store from all over. Some from hip-hop news sites to Japanese blogs, we seem to appear in a wide variety of sites. A nice big arc, going from Macworld UK to ThugLifeArmy, from Yahoo! Finance to Chronic Magazine.
Pretty fun day, overall. :)
