Social Media Top 5: Bryper and Web 2.0 both found alive, Ontario CA still smells like cow poop

This week’s Social Media Top 5, still awaiting more Top 10’s from Bryper:

  1. Bryan Person gone missing: search party discovers him alive and well behind the paid event firewall. Come back to us Bryan!
  2. Podcast & New Media Expo and Hug-a-Thon opens in manure-soaked and poorly-named Ontario, California. Dozens of confused podcasters arrive at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
  3. PodCamp SoCal a success. Chris Brogan removes pants, hilarity ensues– and I didn’t even have to make that one up. Jeff Pulver threatens to up the ante for PodCamp Boston (October 26-28!)
  4. Death of Web 2.0 deemed premature. Web 2.0 can’t die until irrational exuberance has killed our rational thought (all of it), VCs, start pouring on the gasoline, and the Net-arati have produced a new Industry Standard and a new Jason Calacanis
  5. Another one I don’t have to make up: Apple knows what volume is good for you, in case you were looking for the volume control on the iPod touch.

Social Media Top 5: TechCrunch, Guy Kawasaki, and TMI Twittering

Let’s make this a regular thing, just like Bryper’s Social Media Top 10, shall we?

Well, Bryan could actually use a little blogging bran, as he seems to have missed his Top 10 for this week (he has been busy showing people how incredibly smart he is – btw– there is still time to register for his Webinar!).

Disclaimer: Might not add up to exactly five:

  • TechCrunch40 theme revealed; taking inspiration from Agatha Christie, it’s “40 Little Indians.” Be careful out there, everyone.
    • In response to TechCrunch 40 featuring MC Hammer, DEMO signs on the entire Sugar Hill Gang.
  • Wikipedia employee reprimands self for editing “Wikipedia” entry on Wikipedia.
  • Guy Kawasaki’s “Truemors” starts trend; smartest people in tech follow suit:
    • Bill Gates: The Britney Spears Chronicles
    • Steve Jobs: Geek Set Fashion Faux-Pas
    • Larry Ellison: Dead Celebrity Limericks, starting with a 13-part tribute to Don Knotts

Social Media Top Five. Half the Items, Twice the Quality

Bryan Person does a decent job, with his “Social Media Top 10,” but I think the list needs more spin, more pizzazz, more “je-ne-say-what?”

So, here is my take on a “Social Media Top 5” as of today:

  1. Joseph Jaffe bans letter “C,” renames company “rayon.”
  2. Bryper“-style naming convention fails to catch on, according to DoHas, ChriBro, ScoMo and JoWa. SheHo vehemently lobbies against the trend.
  3. Twitter News: AntiChrisBrogan and BritChrisBrogan revealed to be Brogan Horcruxes.
  4. Call for info: Top 10 most ignored FaceBook apps.
  5. Jaiku schedules major event for next Twitter outage.
