The New InfluencersPaul Gillin has written about technology and now social media’s influence on it, for years. Recently he stopped by to talk about his book The New Influencers on the Duct Tape Marketing podcast.

Hint: You don’t get results by press release spamming with traditional media folks and you won’t get it with new media folks either.
