Within the course of seven months, Reddit user Scopolamina went from relative newbie to 2012′s top ranked user on the social news site, amassing an unheard of 1.87 million karma points, the Reddit currency that marks the success and popularity of a particular user. Joining us to talk about his experience as Reddit’s top user, and his insider secrets to becoming a top user, is Reddit user Scopolamina…
This week we discuss the Google/Facebook data portability war, the return of lists on Digg filtered by content type (and additional changes to their UI), the debut of social browser Rockmelt, game theory to explain viral content on social news sites, Skype 5.0 beta for Mac, an alleged sexual assault on a Googler by a Twitter employee, Google instant previews, Google gives free in-flight wifi away for the holidays, installing Android on a jailbroken iPhone, Fox News blocks Google TV, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and an iPhone app that plays Flash video.
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
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.
