The MailChimp Interview

[Watch Video here] [Subscribe to Newsletter here]

[UPDATE: Because I want people to see this video, I'll be keeping it at the top of the gapingvoid homepage off n' on. Please scroll down to see newer content etc.]

I’ve done a lot of interviews over the years; I daresay this one is probably my best: MailChimp, one of my top five web apps I use, interviewing me about the daily cartoon newsletter that we send out (via MailChimp). Thanks to CEO Ben Chestnut and the MC team for making it happen.

[I talk a lot about “Social Objects”. Click here if you don’t know what those are.]

Thanks to the spammers and the hucksters, e-mail marketing went out of vogue for a while, at least with the cool kids. But I think it’s making a comeback; I certainly couldn’t do what I do without it.

So yeah, five-star recommedation for MailChimp. They rock. Use them. And I REALLY hope you watch my interview. That is all.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
