Freshly Squeezed Edition of Five in the Morning

Fresh Five in the Morning

Steve Woodruff asked me to host his Five in the Morning series and give it the Fresh Peel treatment. So here’s 5 juicy reads for today!

First, start your day off right with the music mix of your choice. Mashable shows you the top 5 sites to build a playlist.

Tim Stock from Brand Noise takes an in-depth look at how trends spread through culture networks.

Mark Ritson at the Branding Strategy Insider explores the fluid nature of consumers expectations versus what we as marketers expect.

There is one particular quote from Chris Anderson’s The Long Tail that continues to stand out in my mind as I filter through and consume large amounts of information everyday,

In a world of infinite choice, context not content is king.

John Bell from Digital Influence Mapping Project drives this point home as he adds some context to The Most Social Brands List. (Also a great study for advocating the importance of reputation management.)

Finally, a avid fan of Trader Joe’s has created an Ode to Trader Joe’s commercial (spotted on PSFK), which is starting to make it’s rounds in the blogosphere. David Armano from Logic + Emotion wonders how the store will respond since they typically aren’t a fan of customers taking video footage or photos inside their stores, and makes his recommendations for Trader Joe’s and other brands watching.

Thanks Steve!

    Fun stuff- we have 80s Thursday in my office.

  2. Darn, I was hoping to become a generic brand, or really anything but a brand. Thanks for the hard work, Steve. Congratulations on your success, which has caused this departure.

  3. Noooooooooooooooo! I woke up late today and look what happened.

    Ok, I understand – this has been one of the best blog series ever and every morning was on my reading list. Now back to your Pharma news…but this was awesome!

    Thanks for the series Steve, it introduced me to some talented new people to read.

    Steve, you rock – what’s next?

    As for you and the early, well…

  5. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! That’s it, now I have no reason to be a morning person.

    Okay, well, not like I’ve attempted something so ambitious on my blog. Hell of a run.

  6. Say it ain’t so Steve! Although I’m sad to see the series end, I am consoled that you will still blog. I really did look forward to these posts and was exposed to some great blogs and bloggers.Without you every morning, whatever will I do? This calls for more coffee. Well, as they say in showbiz, always leave your audience wanting more. Well done Steve, well done!

  7. Congratulations on your run, Steve. Maybe one day the luminaries category will include some women. It does in my book : ) Thank you for all the efforts you expend on behalf of the community.

  8. Elegantly done from beginning to end. You’ve certainly given me something to think about for keeping up with the wisdom out there and having fun in the process. Thanks for including me. See you soon!

  10. Hey Steve:

    So sorry to learn that ‘Five in the Morning’ is riding into the sunset.

    Thank you so much for giving us a great series (5 months & 100 posts is a fabulous achievement).

    Also, thank you for the opportunity to be a guest contributor in the series.

    I’m looking forward to your next contribution to the conversation.

    Till then… keep the spirit soaring!

  11. @all you folks – thanks for your kind words! And, of course,
    @Valeria,
    The luminaries certainly do include both genders – I happened to carelessly pull some off the top of my head and they were all males. Mea Culpa. An oversight I will fix right now in the post…

  12. I’m starting the Official “OMG NO you can’t End 5 in the Morning” club. We’ll have a Facebook group, twitter #hashtag, LinkedIn Group, MySpace group, MeetUp’s planned and all sorts of other SM stuff I can’t think of right now.

    We brought back Battlestar Galactica we can bring back 5 in the morning!

    It’s not over yet Stevie.

  13. Steve,

    We have valued your 5 in the mornings (and I was so proud to be mentioned in a couple!) but understand the need to move on. I look forward to more of your words of wisdom even if it isn’t every morning

  14. I knew it! Those early mornings were getting to you!! LOL!

    Steve thanks for this series, it was wonderful and I am sad to see it end…but know you are brewing some other wonderful ideas instead.

    Thanks for letting me be a part of “5, in the Morning!” It was a blast!

    See you in Austin!

  15. I will miss this great “filter” that had become part of my brain flakes breakfast. Still, now maybe I can sleep in:-)

    Thanks for this slice of our infosumption, Steve. Look forward to the next serving of whatever you cook up.

  16. It was a great run and fun to read (and even more fun to be on!). Sorry I didn’t get to guest post on it – I’m having a hard time keeping up with my own blog!

    Cheers!
    Doug
