The Inaugural Blab … with Sean Smith, Paul Holmes, and Special Guest Steve Dotto

December 11, 2015

It's all about that Blab - the hottest new tool in online conversation.


Think Periscope, but with multiple people. Or Hangouts, but with a recording function, and a simple login using Twitter.

Think what you like - Blab is hot, and we jumped on it to kickstart our new podcast season.

Blog Editor Sean Smith was there, as was #SMCamp Co-Producer Paul Holmes ... then Steve Dotto showed up, rather unexpectedly.

What do you think of the new tool? Does it work as a Podcast after the fact? Let us know.

The new website is now launched, and we're rolling out the campaign for 2016. It's going to be an exciting year!

The Future of Google+ with Janice Mansfield

March 10, 2015

Janice Mansfield is the proprietor of gluten-free baking and catering company Real Food Made Easy. She's also a Google+ celebrity, with well over a million followers.


With the announcement of some big changes coming at Google with their social product, the reaction in the tech media was predictable - by and large most media seemed to declare Google+ to be on it's death bed (again).

We thought we'd chat with somebody who uses the platform reguarly for her business, to get her take on what these announcements mean, and where all this is leading.

You may be surprised.
