A pattern is starting to emerge with my podcast partner, Jennifer Leggio, and me… With some of stronger featured a social networks and/or Twitterers of the week, we like them so much that we end up inviting them onto the show as our guest. This week was no different when we showcased the CEO of Plancast, Mark Hendrickson.
We kicked things off by reviewing Entrustnet — a new breed of social/digital sites that take into consideration the fact that we are not immortal and that eventually, we have to consider what happens to our social and digital assets once we die. While I haven’t had a chance to try Entrustnet yet (I don’t believe Jennifer has either), we liked the concept of what these guys bring to the table (interesting back story on how they got started can be found on their site). Jennifer’s one caveat which is worth considering and that is the potential security risk of putting one’s user names and passwords online.
Next up was our aforementioned guest, Mark Hendrickson, CEO of Plancast. You can see our earlier recap of Plancast here or see what Mark’s former boss, Michael Arrington, had to say about this social network that many dub “FourSquare for future events.” Two things I will say about Mark:
- He is smart and a true gentlemen. Jennifer and I peppered him with questions and he answered all of them directly and graciously.
- I love his transparency regarding Plancast’s product roadmap, something we discussed at length during the show. If you want real proof of what I’m talking about, see Mark’s comment on our friend (and next week’s guest show host), Kyle Flaherty’s, post regarding Plancast.
