In the guest chair:
Kashi Sehgal, Executive Director of the newly named SouthWiRED joined me to talk about the re-branding from Digital Atlanta to SouthWiRED and what we can expect from this year’s conference. We also talked about the difficult process of re-bradning on social media. Why can’t Twitter and Facebook make it easier to change your name and why LinkedIn thinks everything little change to your profile is cause for celebration!
And in the headlines:
- Another Atlanta start-up gets funded to the tune of $50 million. We tell you who it is and what they do.
- So, did you hear the one about the UGA coach and the Ponzi scheme? Don’t be mad at me for this, but I don’t follow college sports, so this one was news to me, but might be just an update for some of you.
- Remember the other day when we talked about Coke and those fancy “Freestyle” machines their hoping will engage millennials? Well, now there’s an app for that too!
- And last week when we talked about Coke’s new executive compensation plan and Warren Buffet’s thoughts about it. There’s more to that story too.
