Pilgrim’s Picks for April 4th

It’s Friday!

I’ll let that sink in for a second…..

Yeah, now you’re feeling it…it’s FRIDAY!

OK, so that the boss thinks you’re doing "important research" have at least one Marketing Pilgrim post open in a tab throughout the rest of the day. And with today’s cool Picks, it may as well be this post. ;-)

  • Loic Le Meur’s startup Seesmic has acquired Twitter app Twhirl. If you use Twitter, you’ll love Twhirl. As for Seesmic? Can’t tell you much, other than it’s like Twitter but for video. If I ever get hooked-up with a "closed alpha" invite, I’ll tell you more about it.
  • Valleywag–the bastion of tech rumors–reports Google executive chef Josef Desimone has left the company to join Facebook.
  • Another SERP test from Google. This time it’s testing the display of "one box" results in the middle of pages. (via)
  • Mark your calendars for two upcoming SMX events from the D-man. First up, SMX Social Media Marketing takes place April 22-23 in Long Beach, CA (we’ll have coverage from the event) and SMX Advanced is soon after June 3-4 in Seattle.
