“A Beer With..” S2E3: Baratunde Thurston

Baratunde, one of the most viral people on the internet, digital capo for The Onion, author, and recent magazine cover boy drops by for a pint and some conversation. We discuss his upcoming book “How To Be Black”, calling out social media “gurus”, #BlackTwitter, and a lot of other stuff. 

This is the best episode we’ve done. More to come.

One of the brilliant brains behind The Onion. Drinking. With Ernest. *kaboom*

What up, tumblrs? (Is that correct? Tumblrites?) Anyhow, I’m Scott Kleinberg, the social media director for RedEye and Metromix. Right now, I’m testing out Tumblr as a fun new hangout for RedEye fans, friends, followers, lookalikes - pretty much everyone.
I look at it this way … if Twitter is a place for a super-quick bite and Facebook is a casual sit-down restaurant, tumblr is the bar where you can wait for your friends to meet you while sipping a drink and nibbling on a mix of spicy peanuts and pretzels.
Here is my causal profile - the one you would see on RedEye’s staff page:

Scott Kleinbergsocial media director • RedEye-Metromix  | @redeyechicago / @metromixchiMy RedEye nickname is: The Twitter guy.My celebrity alter ego is/because: Steve Jobs - because I actually invented the iPhone and he knows it!I’m the one on the staff most likely to: Open a Starbucks at my desk
That’s me. I’d love to meet you. How about posting your casual profile? Photos welcome, but optional.
