On Being an Über Blogger: Cory Doctorow

Blogger Thomas Crampton shares with us the following video interview with Cory Doctorow on how to be noticed in the attention economy.

Drawing on his wealth of experience, particularly with Boing Boing, Cory emphasises that you’ve got to write relevant headers to be captured by RSS feeds. Leave the puns at home (awwww). Apparently Cory also points to the condensed wisdom of Jakob Nielsen on design.

Surprisingly, as someone who’s contributed to the International Herald Tribune and New York Times, Thomas’ video blogging skills need an instructional guide! Lose the long shot unless you're sure people don't want to converse in the middle of your set, lol!
