Andrew Baron, creator of the Rocketboom Podcast (one of the first and most well-known) put out a request via Twitter asking people to call the number 867-5309 (remember…Tommy Tutone song) from all area codes — and better yet, to report their findings on the Rocketboom Wiki.
Here’s Andrew Baron’s Twitter page, from where the call-out was made.
And here’s the Wiki where people are leaving their results. (I’m assuming they’ll do a story on the Rocketboom Podcast.)
Using podcasting, Twitter, and a Wiki – all for a fun experiment. How can you apply this to your own online marketing? Maybe use it as an excuse to promote your own Twitter page – or better yet, your own wiki or community. The point of the story is a case study of someone using three burgeoning Web 2.0 media to gather and deliver information.
I thought it was cool.
