Why HoiPolloi? 

When I began blogging in May 2004, communication was being disrupted; media was under siege. I was convinced that the hoi polloi –Greek for that derisive term the masses– were going to rearrange our molecules, so to speak. Radical change always arrives from those on the edges. Johannes Gutenberg was not a printer, but a goldsmith. He adapted a wine press to disrupt the publishing business, and change the knowledge industry!

Hoipolloi Report’ is my sandbox where take notes of media and marketing shifts brought on by emerging technologies and tinkered by ‘people like us.’ Today the hoi polloi certainly tell better stories. They speak their mind, they talk back. They are noisy, funny, unpredictable.
