—A new series devoted to social network know-how, news, reviews and more—
San Francisco, CA (April 28, 2008) – With a new social networking site launching every day, how do you cut through the clutter? Revision3, the leader in exclusive Internet television, serves up a tall glass of…um… water with “Social Brew,” its brand new series devoted to the online social networking phenomenon. “Social Brew” is a concoction of news, reviews and how-to’s for all social networks, including the biggies: MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Episodes of the hit new show will launch Mondays at 3:00 p.m. EST at http://www.revision3.com/socialbrew.
“Social networking is part of our daily internet lives, but it’s impossible to keep up with all the new developments”, said Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision3. “Whether you need advice on how to navigate tricky interpersonal situations, or you just want to know who’s got the hottest new Facebook app or Twitter utility, Social Brew keeps you up to date. Plus our hilarious host Irene McGee adds a special, leavening ingredient.”
“Social Brew” acts as a discussion forum for all things social networking, and features the weekly segment “NETiquette,” offering advice on how to navigate Web 2.0 sites with poise and dignity intact.
About Social Brew host Irene McGee:
Media activist and pundit Irene McGee continues to bring Web fans her unique perspective and pop culture hilarity—this time as host of Revision3’s Social Brew, debuting at revision3.com/socialbrew in mid-April 2008.
Irene is perhaps best known for her award-winning podcast No One’s Listening, created in 2005, that addressed a range of subjects spanning popular culture and the forces that shape it. Within the first month of the show’s inception it was featured on BoingBoing, The San Francisco Chronicle, and iTunes. The show garnered various awards including a “Pubby Award” for Best Bay Area Podcast, and featured over 100 guests, such as academic Noam Chomsky, creator of Wikipedia Jimmy Wales, rocker Jello Biafra, and author Amy Tan. Show topics ranged from “The Commodification of Punk Rock” and “Bling It On: Race and Media” to “Iraq the Spin Cycle.”
No One’s Listening led to a talk radio show in the San Francisco Bay Area. One critique compared McGee’s style as “Ira Glass meets Jon Stewart.” McGee holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Georgetown University and a Masters of Arts in Broadcast Electronic Communications from San Francisco State University. She is excited to join the team at Revision3.
Revision3 is the first media company that gets it, born from the Internet, on-demand generation. Unlike aggregators, mash-ups, and user-generated video sites, Revision3 is an actual TV network for the Web, creating and producing its own original, broadcast-quality shows.
