An Open invitation to Kevin Rose, former CEO, Digg.com

Crossposted from Social Blade

We have never begged a guest to be on our show before. There are so many interesting social media people out there that finding guests is possibly the easiest aspect of doing the show.

Kevin Rose, CEO, Digg.com

Kevin Rose, CEO Digg.com

This week, we’re changing things. I, JD Rucker, am BEGGING Kevin Rose to be our guest on either The Drill Down Wednesday night at 6:30pm Pacific or the Social Blade Show Thursday at 7:00pm Pacific.

So that it’s easier to fit into your (obviously) busy schedule, we are opening it up to either show… or BOTH! Your appearance on TWiT was nice, but we would like to ask some more challenging and perhaps better-informed questions than what Mr. Laporte was able to pose.

Simply Tweet to @MrBabyMan or @0boy and let us know which you can make.
