For many innovators, making a splash through social media is the subject of long thought and a lot of trial and error. On the other hand, innovators like Elon Musk tend to have the Midas touch when it comes to combining innovation and social media.

The creative economy is a new a world in which people work with their brains instead of their hands.   A world in which innovation is more important than mass production.  A world in which investment buys new concepts or the means to create them, rather than new machines.

Along with many in the podcasting community, we've recorded a PSA (Public Service Announcement) to help raise funds for the relief effort. Rather than do the traditional Red Cross PSA, I created one for a charity organization that I'm personally involved with ... and one that I'm confident is providing relief to the area. Please take a listen to the PSA and feel free to forward to other podcasters or media outlets who could help get the message out.
