“Reactionary Business Guy” Gary Vaynerchuk Talks Web Promotions and More on the Menu

On today’s Morning Media Menu podcast, Wine Guy Gary Vaynerchuk talks about changing the world’s attitude toward wine, using new media in the pre-Twitter age.

“I think we’re living through a shocking change in our society,” Vaynerchuck said. “The Internet as we know it is 14 years old and everyone is acting like we’re in the heydey or the golden era. This stuff has not started. We’re in a 40-inning, extra inning game and we haven’t even put our clothes on to drive to the stadium…There’s enormous opportunity.”

Vaynerchuk, who hosts Wine Library TV and is releasing his first book “Crush It!” in October, also discussed the paid editorial content controversy stemming from the weekend’s news that Gawker was set to purchase fake vampire blog Bloodcopy.

He’ll also be speaking at Mediabistro Circus next week.
