Kelsey Thinks Social, Acts Local

With small businesses increasingly heading onto Facebook and other social networks, local media advisor BIA/ Kelsey is launching a social media practice geared to the local market.

Recent research by the firm, in partnership with ConStat, shows 48% of small and medium-sized businesses are using Facebook to advertise or promote their business, outstripping email at 43%. Among those surveyed, 40% said they have a dedicated Facebook page. Among other findings, one-quarter use other social networks, 22% have a blog, and 19% use Twitter to promote their company.

Face off: Survey shows Foursquare is losing out to Facebook Places

Face off: Survey shows Foursquare is losing out to Facebook Places Facebook Places seems to be going places fast and has powered past start-up location-based discounters Foursquare and Gowalla to achieve a commanding market share in the five short months since its stateside launch.

The Financial Times' tech blog has reported that 32 per cent of social networking site MerchantCircle's 1.6 million local business owning users currently promote their business through Facebook Places, while just 9 per cent use location-based start-up Foursquare - even though Facebook Places is said to be largely styled on the start-up.

A Jerry Quote!

This probably best describes the band for me!

"You do not merely want to be considered the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones that do what you do."

No reason it baffles when Phish are considered to be Dead! Phish is a great band, with similarities, and personally it stops right there!

A Grateful Deadication



What a Long Strange Trip It's Been!

Grateful Dead was an American rock band, which was formed in 1965 in San Francisco from the remnants of another band, Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions. The Grateful Dead was known for its unique and eclectic songwriting style—which fused elements of rock, folk music, bluegrass, blues, country, and jazz—and for its long modal jams. The band's numerous fans, called Deadheads, were renowned for their dedication to the band's music; many followed the Grateful Dead from concert to concert for years.

The Grateful Dead's career began, under the name The Warlocks, in the San Francisco psychedelic rock scene of the 1960s. Many bands from this area went on to national fame, such as Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother & the Holding Company, garnering San Francisco an image as a center for the hippie counterculture of the era. Of these bands, the Grateful Dead had the "most musicianly background", including banjo and guitar player Jerry Garcia, blues musician "Pigpen" McKernan, the classically trained Phil Lesh and drummer Bill Kreutzmann [1]. In addition, the Grateful Dead most embodied "all the elements of the San Francisco scene and came, therefore, to represent the counterculture to the rest of the country".

Playing originally as The Warlocks, and later Grateful Dead (a name chosen at random from the dictionary by Jerry Garcia), the band became the de facto resident band of Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters, with the early sound heavily influenced by Kesey's LSD-soaked Acid Tests as well as R&B. Their musical influences varied widely with input from the psychedelic music of the era, combined with blues, jazz, and bluegrass. These various influences were distilled into a diverse and eclectic whole that made the Grateful Dead "one of the most experimental and improvisatory bands in rock".
