Streamified Presents: Let us Present
There’s a whole bunch of interesting information out there. From blogs to YouTube channels to podcasts, it can be hard to sift through the chaff to find the wheat.
It’s true, we have good discovery tools like StumbleUpon, Reddit, HackerNews and so on. Mobile apps like Zite, Flipboard and Pulse are beginning to present us new information. Still, I am personally bothered by a trend: it is difficult to find something new that is already not big.
Some of my favorite blogs, writers, sites, and artists are not already hugely popular. With most of them, I don’t remember how I first came upon their website. Generally, they were too small for the big content discovery engines.
Thankfully, in cities like San Francisco and LA we are constantly exposed to content creators who deserve more attention. In my opinion, there are not enough people out there trying to spread the word about these sorts of creators.
Let us Present
As we spent time having conversations with bloggers who we’ve featured in Streamified, we began to discover that many of them had fascinating stories. With some of them, we hopped on a quick phone call to learn more about what they were doing and why.
The result is the Let us Present Podcast (iTunes link). Let us Present is a collection of our conversations with innovators who are using online communities to build a brand which we believe deserves more recognition. We’ve been in touch with artists, musicians, bloggers, YouTube anchors, sports writers, novelists, and more. We think (and hope) that you’ll enjoy the stories of these people as much as we enjoyed meeting them.
The podcast is launching this week, and will soon go live in iTunes. We’ll be updating it every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (in conjunction with our new digest email).
If you like what we’re doing or think that you know a good guest for the show, shoot us a tweet @LetUsPresent!
