In the spirit of journalism, it seems important to acknowledge sources, and give them credit for their work. The following 100 plus bloggers and online personalities were cited in Welcome to the Fifth Estate‘s 180+ footnotes. The book itself, which has been delayed by a […]

I’m not sure if you saw the Social Media Rabbi video yet, but if you haven’t check it out. In addition to the video, I did prepare a short outtakes film of some silly moments shooting the movie.  Here they are:

Several folks received emails today from Amazon indicating they will not receive Now Is Gone until November 26th for the U.S., and December 5th for European Union customers. First of all, let me apologize for this up front. A confluence of issues have occurred:
