TummelVision 9: Brian Oberkirch on the art of small good things


Episode Notes

Episode 9 Download the show

We had a great chat with Brian Oberkirch on  the implicit and explicit  impact of the social and geo-loco services rippling through our lives.  Brian is a ‘multi-lingual’ understated tummler and marketing guy who speaks geek and non geek alike.  He looks at the web from a uniquely human place. We focused a bit on the need for web services and sites to do a better job educating their users on the implications of the data they are sharing in plain english as well as discussing  how the features we choose to include on sites set the tone for the community – i.e. ratings systems, game mechanics, “number of followers” etc.
