- Matt recommends: Mountain Dew introduces new banner advertising using the Facebook API -- when you click on the "like" button, it ads you to the Mountain Dew business page, without taking you away from the site you're watching the ad on. Good stuff.
- Maris recommends:Google Moderator -- you open up the topic, and then other people can vote the content up or down by popularity, date, etc.
- Ron recommends: SonicBids.com -- electronic press kit service and Dmitri recommends reverbnation.com
- Dmitri recommends: Sivers.org -- cool blog by Derek Sivers, all about music and business
