    Good list. Pity it’s entirely US-centric. I’m a Yank myself, but I doubt that the only marketers to watch live in America.

  • Thank you very much for including me. It’s really a testament to the work of the Community and Social Strategy teams at Radian6 and the philosophy of providing useful content to our community that was created by David Alston and nourished by Amber Naslund and Lauren Vargas. But I’m still gonna get a t-shirt made. 🙂

    So here’s the idea…I want to fly. Not in a plane though. I want to fly in a wingsuit. and I’d like to film the whole deal beginning to end. Call it something like “training icarus-the making of a wingsuit pilot”. Problem here is that if I pay for it all myself, it’s gonna be not as high quality production video, and it’ll take me forever. So… I need a sponsor. AFF school is $3550. And if paid up front, you get an extra 10 jumps with the package. After I get qualified, it takes another 200 jumps to be able to start wingsuit school. Those are $25 a jump at 13,500 feet. That’s another $5000. Then there is the wingsuit itself. That’s $1600. Ok so without going any further into the grimy details, I’m at $9050, and we haven’t even filmed anything yet. Why should anyone pay for this? extreme sports is the largest growing spectator sport out there! People are nuts for watching this! And the closest they’ll ever come to doing it is drinking the same energy drink as those doing it and watching them on TV. So…I’m dying to do this…And I have a career…so you don’t have to pay me…just my expenses. I really just want to fly! So be a party of history and let’s do this!
