Quick August update to keep in touch with you all listeners as I'm preparing for future episodes, scheduling conversations with creators in the weeks to come. So this is just a few minutes long to keep you in the loop and mention a couple of things that caught my attention in the past week or so as I've been catching up on a backlog of email newsletters, as I'm considering a few possible changes to the Ice Cream for Everyone website (about time, it's slow and clunky now), and the Ice Cream Sundae newsletter.
I logged back on the Steam gaming platform to redeem a couple of coupons from new video games I'd supported the development of during Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns like Pinstripe, found out about a recent game by the creator of Monkey Island called Thimbleweed Park, and recommend Nick Quah's Hot Pod email newsletter about podcasting news and trends.
I forgot to mention in the episode that I was also going to attend Genius Steals Faris & Rosie Yakob's WARC webinar about the ABCs [Account, Brand, Comms] of Agency Tools and Processes. This was Part 1 and it was excellent, the presentation will soon be available to download online. Part 2 is coming next month if you'd like to check it out.
