Please join James Howard Kunstler for a live author conversation about his newest book, "Too Much Magic," this Tuesday night.

TOO MUCH MAGIC: Wishful Thinking, Technology, and the Fate of the Nation

A conversation with bestselling author James Howard Kunstler

Tue 7/31 from 9:00pm - 10:00pm EDT

Cost: Free

Participation is limited. RSVP now.

http://www.shindig.com/event/james-howard-kunstler

ABOUT:

In April of 2005, James Howard Kunstler's "The Long Emergency" became a phenomenon. His shocking vision for our post-oil future caught the attention of environmentalists and business leaders and was the subject of much debate, stimulating discussion about our dependence on fossil fuels.

In the seven years since its first publication, many of Kunstler's warnings from "The Long Emergency" have proved prophetic, and in his new book, TOO MUCH MAGIC: Wishful Thinking, Technology, and the Fate of the Nation, released in July 2012, Kunstler builds on the core arguments of The Long Emergency and argues there is now compelling evidence that forces including the economic depression, decreasing oil production, and increasingly dramatic climate change are combining to "reset the fundamental terms of everyday life."

Just getting word that there were some technical problems with last night's "Shindig." Too Much Magic, indeed. Anyone "attend"?

And I must be computer illiterate.  I was invited by JHK, I accepted and RSVP'd but had no clue how to "attend"  The website didn't give me any info either...

You needed to click the RSVP button. I'm not sure what the process was from there. I assume you signed up. I know everyone who signed up received an email that had the WRONG DATE in the message. That was written by the Shindig folks, not me!!! They sent out another email to correct that.

I'm not sure what invite you got. I sent out an invite through JHK's facebook page, through this discussion forum and through the email mailing list. in all of those I explained that you had to sign up through the Shindig page. Early on, I did realize that the facebook invite might have been confusing because facebook events have their own "attending" button you can press. You needed to sign up through Shindig, not facebook. I corrected that early on, but that MIGHT have been what tripped you up. Don't know.

There were technical glitches but it turned out OK. There is a recording of the event and I plan to release that on the podcast for those who missed it or who gave up. JHK might do more of these, might even do Shindig debates. I don't know.

I got to see it live, along with a friend who is rather new to Kunstler's material.  Me?  I could listen to Jim talk all day.. he's quite entertaining and thought-provoking.  As far as how well my friend recieved it, the humor in the slideshow definitely made an impression, along with the fact that he doesn't come-off as a crackpot.

Nood,

I was a week late posting the results of my live experience.

The pictures are what happened that evening of 7 31 2012.

And I really don't like you right now...and I probably never did and never will.   Undecided

Jeez, that was unnecessary.

"page is loading" is present tense...a million apologies for interpreting it as such.

I do NOT accept your apology a million times.

I agree your reply to my post was unnecessary.

I think moderators are unnecessary. Let be perfectly clear to everyone that I don't know nood and I probably never will and that I don't like moderators and probably never will.

I think addressing people personally on a message board is COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY when you can PRIVATE MESSAGE them instead.  It's sort of like when a child misbehaves, you take them aside to correct them in order to maintain their dignity.

Anyway...you have the "power" to erase the "unnecessary"...so if you're so apologetic, then just erase your mistake.

Thanks.

SMS marketing is a cost effective way to reach customers in a very short time frame. Most of us keep our mobile phones within arm's reach and check new messages within minutes. So it's no wonder SMS marketing is now a popular way for marketers to connect with customers. But have you ever considered how SMS can actually support your other communication channels, such as email? Here are three ideas to get you thinking how your SMS and email activities can work together to grow, maintain and engage your customer base. 1. Email acquisition Web forms are a great way of capturing new subscriber details to your database, but they're not the only way. You can also do it via SMS with something called virtual numbers. Virtual numbers are a mobile phone number that is connected to your database instead of a handset. So if someone sends a message to your virtual number, it is captured directly within your database. Virtual numbers are extremely effective for offline email acquisition campaigns as they provide a simple, familiar way for people to submit their email address. You simply ask people to SMS their email address to your virtual number and they become instantly subscribed to your email database. This is a very popular method with offline competitions aimed at growing your email database. 2. Update bounced customer emails Before deleting a customer's record from your database because their email address has bounced, try contacting them by SMS. Tell them you've tried sending them an email about "xyz" and that it has bounced. And ask them to reply with their current email address. This is where technology becomes your best friend too, because email and SMS marketing software platforms can automatically capture your customer's reply SMS and update your database with the new email address. You can even automatically re-send your original email message to your customer's new address, so this whole process can happen in close to real time without you even lifting a finger. 3. Engage email subscribers Integrating SMS with email as part of a promotional campaign can be a very effective way to capture people's attention, particularly when people aren't reading your emails. Consider this example SMS message that seeks to drive people back to their email inbox to register for an event. Matthew, last chance to register for our webinar. Registration closes tomorrow. See your inbox for more & hope to see you there. Reply stop to unsubscribe. With the right targeting, these sorts of messages can work really well to entice people towards opening your email and following through on your call to action.
