Killing cars, News Media and Coke

Christmas Coke Bombs + MentosWhat seemed like an easy week turned into a whirlwind, aside from a mid-March snowstorm, I had the chance to speak on a panel about social media customer support with Jim Storer, Carissa O’Brien and Rosalind Morville for the NECCF. The panel was pretty awesome, but driving home in the icy slush was not so bueno. The week closed out with my eyes glued to a PowerPoint hell… How was your week? Have any good weekend plans? Have a good one and look forward to catching up next week, until then, enjoy this week’s edition of Five for Friday.
