Did You Know - updated

Tonight a tweet by karen Janowski (karenJan) pointed me to Karl Fisch’s blog post here: http://thefischbowl.blogspot.com/2008/08/did-you-know-music-industry-remix.html

THAT pointed me to this: http://release.theplatform.com/content.select?pid=x7aVOMrlfkkijQwcLllwk6WjB5JE0zrF or http://tinyurl.com/6s8l3k This is the Music Industry’s version of Karl’s Did You Know presentation.

Those who know this presentation will get a kick out of the new version. Those who haven’t seen it.. Well.. You’re probably not reading the blog post.

Can you imagine what a kick it must be for Karl who made this presentation to show to his faculty a couple years ago in 2006? ( http://tipline.blogspot.com/2007/03/tips-did-you-know-sequel.html, http://thefischbowl.blogspot.com/2006/08/did-you-know.html) He released it with the purest of intentions, saying that if you wanted to use it, go ahead. BAM! WORLD FAMOUS in a matter of a few weeks. It has done more to start conversations than anything else we’ve seen. People didn’t read, “The World is Flat”, perhaps, but they DID see this presentation.

And now THIS version. Why? The STORY! The MESSAGE! Are schools listening? Probably not. This is in a blog – and it’s blocked at school.

Congratulation, Karl.
