These are my links for June 29th through July 1st:

  • 10 Beautiful Social Media Infographics – I get pretty excited about pretty data. Good to see you, pretty data. Next stop for you guys? Keynote.
  • PayPal Launches Mobile Express Checkout To Enable One-Click Buying On Smartphones – Uh oh. Amazon is going to have something to say about this.
  • Cashmore: Google building a Facebook rival? Let’s hope so – CNN.com – I’m looking forward to this for a couple reasons. First: competition is good for this industry. Second: I want to see how the “do no evil” Google mantra holds up in a social networking environment that is starting to push back on privacy. Watch for them to connect their search ad model. I smell new ad options in Google Adwords.
  • Introducing SlideShowPro Mobile – Video: The popular, robust slide show solution for Flash just released HTML5 support for non-Flash devices, eg iPad & iPhone.
  • The Social Media Problem for Companies – @daveatnorth from Portland agency North reminds us that social media shouldn’t be thought of as a fix for marketing your brand in this year’s web. Rather, it is a medium that makes it easier to act on our social nature. Let’s not forget that social media connects people and extends our ability to cultivate relationships. That’s the core purpose of participation in social media. Brands are guests at the party.

Export your Torq M3U playlist to a plain text list of tracks

True to my Twitter bio, I still get to DJ every once in a while. My glow stick days are over, but I’m still addicted to the tools of the trade.

I’ve been using M-audio Torq to take advantage of my digital crate while retaining the actual vinyl on 1200′s feel that I was raised on. I was skeptical of going the “cheap” route, but I have been super impressed with the system’s stability and value for the coin. M-audio (I guess I should say Avid, now) don’t mess around.

I played a party @blizzle threw in March called Freedom Fest. My set was a sweaty journey though some tracks from my pegged-jeans, Reebok Pump wearin’ high school days. A few friends have requested the playlist, so I poked around to see how I might export the playlist the Torq logs each time you play.

It turns out the playlists are stored in /Application Support/M-Audio/Torq/Playlists in M3U format. Run the contents of that file through this nice M3U Playlist Conversion Tool for DJs from Calardo/Grant, and you’re left with a perfect, text only, chronological list of the tracks in your playlist.
