Justin Elliott is a Salon.com reporter who in the past has incorrectly alleged that our sister community, The Energy Collective, was editorially controlled by its advertising sponsor, Siemens. The Energy Collective is an independent site, and Siemens has no say in its editorial process. The same is true for all 10 community blogging sites published by Social Media Today LLC.
By accident, I recently emailed Justin a presentation that was intended for a potential client. (Thank you, gmail, for that handy auto-complete address feature.) Justin decided to blog about our presentation (which is available here) and he has asked a couple of questions during an interview this morning which is recorded here as well.
We'll see what Justin writes, but we're always delighted to have an opportunity, particularly in as big a platform as Salon, to explain our model of editorially independent social media community.
