March Marketing/SocMed Madness Thursday First Rd. Results

In Uncategorized on March 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

The first eigth games have been played and we have some major upsets. Because the field, all 64 ‘teams,’ was filled with quality talent, a #1 v #16 match-up wasn’t necessarily a foregone conclusion. As a reminder, here is the statistical breakdown I devised:

  • 1 (73%) v 16 (27%)
  • 2 (70%) v 15 (30%)
  • 3 (67%) v 14 (33%)
  • 4 (64%) v 13 (36%)
  • 5 (61%) v 12 (39%)
  • 6 (58%) v 11 (42%)
  • 7 (55%) v 10 (45%)
  • 8 (52%) v 9 (48%)
  • As you can see, it’s pretty tight. So, without further ado, here are your Round One, Thursday winners:

    #16 Jesse Newhart defeats #1 Chris Brogan(!)

    #1 Malcolm Gladwell defeats #16 David Mullen

    #15 Steve Woodruff defeats #2 Jeremiah Owyang (!)

    #2 Brian Solis defeats #15 Jeff Pulver

    #2 Ann Handley defeats #15 Doug Haslam

    #3 Aloha Arleen defeats #14 Julia Roy

    #4 Brian Clark defeats #13 CC Chapman

    #4 Scott Monty defeats #13 Chip & Dan Heath

    #5 Guy Kawasaki defeats #12 Shannon Paul

    #5 Noah Brier defeats #12 Jane Quigley

    #6 Peter Kim defeats #11 Rohit Bhargava

    #7 Josh Spear defeats #10 Rob Walker

    #7 Amanda Chapel defeats #10 Faris Yakob

    #10 Mitch Joel defeats #7 Grant McCracken

    #9 Mike Arauz defeats #8 Connie Reece

    #9 David Armano defeats #8 Pete Cashmore

    Two huge upsets with a #1 and a #2 going down on the first day. Overall there were five upsets, which feels about right. Just so you know, all results were witnessed by my colleague and fellow blogger, Rich Gallagher.  Come back tomorrow around this time for Friday’s results.

    1. This is sheer madness. Great idea and fun to watch – thanks for doing this! (Still shaking my head about Chris Brogan though.)
