SXSW Or Bust

SXSW Or Bust


It’s that time of year again: SXSW (aka Geek Spring Break)—the time when all good social media types head to Austin, Texas, to actually interact in real life with people they usually only talk to via a keyboard. While they are there, they will pinky swear that they won’t go back next year because it’s been overrun by the big brands.

This year, I go there—as I always do—looking to meet people who are using social media to do new and amazing things online, discover exciting applications and tools that are out there, and catch up with old friends to learn what they have accomplished.

It will be different for me this time. I’ll be there as part of the PayPal team, which I’m very excited about. At SXSW I’ll be running the social media team on the ground for PayPal. What does that mean? Let me share some of the things PayPal will be doing there in list form, as people like lists.


–       PayPal will have a week-long Digital Lounge at SXSW. Everyone is invited to Pop! in and play at PayPal Exchange our PayPal Developer Lounge located on the third floor of the Convention Center. Enjoy a blue slurpee (#tweetyourtoungue) and create your own personalized SuperHero Sticker – there’s something for everyone! We’ll be there during SXSW’s Interactive week from March 8-12.


–       On March 9, there will be a PayPal party. Okay, I’ll just be having a fun time there (shhhh!) We’ll be hosting a Superhero surprise at Mohawk; along with exclusive live performances from Man Man and other local favorites you won’t forget.


–       The whole week we will be using Twitter to—oh, wait, I can’t tell you that. That one is a surprise…my bad! So you might want to follow the PayPal Twitter account for something really cool happening all week.


Are you headed to SXSW? If so, make sure to stop by the Digital Lounge and say “Hi!” If you do, you might be surprised and delighted.

An Open Letter To My Blog

An Open Letter To My Blog


Dear TheDavePeck.com,

First, I want to say I’m sorry. Really sorry… I’ve taken you for granted.  I would ask how you have been, but I know you haven’t been well. I haven’t visited you, posted, or even upgraded your widgets in more than a year. I know it’s not fair. You have done so much for me, and I just tossed you aside like a MySpace page.

I want you to know that what you have done for me is not all for naught. If it wasn’t for you, I would not have accomplished what I have in the past year.  Nor would I be where I am today. Let me share with you some of the amazing things that have been going on. I’ll do it in list form, because well….people like lists.


  • I wrote a book. No, really, I did! Don’t tease me like my high school friends do. It’s called Think Before You Engage. And, yes, it’s a real book.  Well, no, that doesn’t mean it’s real. You’re right. But, look here.  I even have a real publisher. One that’s been around since 1807!



So this brings me to where I am today. I am exactly where I want to be. I have the most incredible job as the Head of Social Media for PayPal.


(Let me know when the shock and awe has calmed down.)


Yes, it’s that PayPal. The site that’s changing the way people pay and helping anyone, anywhere, anytime send and receive money. It’s the dream job for any social media expert, guru, ninja, master, black belt, buzz term.  I’m working with amazing people, doing amazing things, and changing how commerce is done.

So, I hope you can understand that I have been really busy. It’s not an excuse. I get that. And, I want to turn this around. It’s my goal to publish to you more frequently. I can’t promise my posts will always be long and helpful, but I’ll do my best.

I look forward to spending more time with you and hope you do too.


Sincerely yours,


Dave “I won’t blogfade” Peck

The Social Media Shameless Blogpost March 2011

The Social Media Shameless Blogpost March 2011

It has been a while since I have done one of these, so with so much going on, it seems like a good time to do one.

Let me start with a few “house cleaning” items, in no particular order. I will do them in list form, as… well.. people like lists.

-I want to thank everyone who voted for me, tweeted and shared my video  To Be Ashton’s VP of Pop Culture“. I do mean that. As  so many of people took part like, my family, friends, kids school, the Twitter community, my Facebook Community, my Blog community, folks at SXSW and so on.

– Being one of the top 3 allowed me to meet some amazing people like Jessie Csincsak from the Bachelor.  Jessie and I ave actually become “buddies for life” as he put it. I have also gotten to talk to  Diane Mizota an actress from such things as well.. here  you’ll recognize her:

-Then there is of course the  Twitter king himself Ashton Kutcher. I got to spend sometime with him on the phone. He was a pleasure to talk to and seemed really easy going.  This is the week that popchips team and Ashton will decide the winner of the contest, so send me good luck. I would be thrilled if you left a comment telling them to pick me here.

-While at SXSW Meshin demoed our soon to be in closed beta: MeshinMobile.  It got nothing but positive feedback. Wanna be part of the beta? Sign up here.

-One of the panels I took part in was  My Kindergartner Markets better than You, you can read a review here.

– I thought I would share the Crowdtap SXSW Launch Party video I go to be part of, it was really well done:

Carrying a Torch for.. Well… The Torch

Carrying a Torch for.. Well… The Torch

Recently, the folks at Research In Motion (RIM) were kind enough to supply me with a Blackberry Torch.  Now as an iPhone user, I was a bit skeptical about the phone. I really, really like my iPhone.

Being the risk taker I am, went to my local AT&T store to get the phone activated. While waiting in line (has anyone been to an AT&T store without a line?), the person behind me started commenting on the Torch.  “I have heard wonderful things about it, I wish I was able to get one.” Now, keep in mind, prior to getting this, I knew nothing about the Torch, so I was surprised he knew about it. Once getting home, my 12 year old son, could smell the phone enter the house.

“Sniff, sniff…. Dad, did you get something new? What is that in the box? Did you get a Torch?”

“Time out, how do you know this is a Torch?’ I asked

“I have seen ads, for them. Let me try it.”

He quickly rips it out of my hand and starts showing me the features. Are you kidding me? The kids was all over this thing.  Slides it up to display the keyboard, starting taking these amazing crisp photos and making videos!.

“Son, do you think I might be able to use it?” I humbly ask.

“Sure, but if you need any help just let me know.” he says.

I think to myself, no doubt I will be asking him for a lot of help. I quickly sit down and attempt to load some apps, take a photo, create a video & zoom in. Yep, that is correct. I needed no help for son #1!!  This thing has such simple  navigation it is crazy. Oh did I mention the flash? Love it. (hey I only had an iPhone 3).

I took the phone with me around town and tested the GPS. Now, this might sound strange, but I found it to be a lot more accurate then my iPhone. Am I the only one with issues with GPS on the iPhone? Same goes with the mp3 player..much better on the Torch.

So, overall this phone rocks.I am not saying that for the benefit of the RIM folks, it really does.  If I did not like it, I would say so.  Heck, I could go on about the cool features and scare you off, but you can just read about them here.

Also, I reached out to them via Twitter at there BlackBerry account and the response time was really good. That is something that really impressed me, as other companies seem to not be on top of it.

iPad Cases For The Win

iPad Cases For The Win

So, it seems that if you talk enough about something on the web, things happen. I mean it is not like I am vocal or anything on social networking sites. Right? 😉

Recently, I mentioned my need…want.. for an iPad. They are damm cool, ..trendy.

Now to be trendy, you need something cool to carry them in. Heck, you don’t want to see my iPhone. Its covered in a brick like case and screensaver film thing. As my wife says, I am very hard on my phone. So you can only imagine what I would do to an iPad.

Well, I was thrilled to come home and find in a mail a wonderful item from the folks at Griffin Technology! A Elan Passport iPad case!!

This thing is slick! Awesome quality on the outside, pockets to put stuff in the inside. I am actually toying with idea of ditching my old school backpack altogether. Yes, I am geeky that way.

Here.. look .. video of it..cause video makes everything better:

Now, I look super cool at work, walking around with my iPad and case taking notes!!

So, yes I got this for free. No, I was not forced to write about it. I did this cause the folks at Griffin Technology rock.
