David Armano Chats With Ze Frank

Link to the video of David interviewing Ze (I took the embed out because it kept playing automatically, very annoying)

David Armano did a hell of a job at the Forrester Consumer forum, running round with a laptop streaming the whole conference to the Critical Mass media mashup at alwaysinbeta.criticalmass.com, including their twitter feed, chatroom, and ustream video feed.


One of the high points of the conference for me was hanging out and chatting with Ze Frank and David did an impromptu video with him via Ustream. Ze is apparently not thrilled with most of the interviews he does, and I can imagine he gets asked the same crap over and over again. Armano did a good job of just having a conversation with him and it’s interesting stuff. I find that Ze has an outsiders perspective and helps deflate mental models that business people have quickly built to navigate the tumultuous changes in the business environment. Some might call Ze’s approach common sense, but you know what they say about common sense, it’s not too common.

    Good to see Ze is out there (since the show ended) but did David really call him “Zee”? Hah, oh well..

    Yup, I totally botched Ze’s Name. But hey—maybe that’s why the interview was decent. I didn’t treat him like a celebrity. Truth be told, I think I’ve only watched 2-3 of his vlogs. But he’s a smart dude, no doubt about it.

    Karl, great meeting you in person. Can’t wait to record our first Podcast. :-)
