crowdSPRING on U.S. National News Ross | January 28th, 2010

Don’t worry – we’re not replacing Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. But we did, like Conan O’Brien, have a brief appearance on NBC (on the Nightly News tonight) in a special report about the reaction of small businesses to the initiatives that President Obama announced in his State of the Union speech last night. That report (crowdSPRING appears at 1:37 of the video) is below.

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!

    Wow, Ross – fun surprise to see you guys on NBC! Tough times for growth, indeed, but a challenge of scarcity.

    Ross come on, be honest – the back of the head shot where you were typing away at the end – you were just doing that for effect weren’t you?

    You guys hit this on the head. Credits are so generalized in speeches, to the point that you can’t take the face value of a “credit” as the saving grace for the economy. Tax credits to small businesses are great, but many tax credits are not being felt immediately, or there is a backdraft on the ability to give future benefits to these companies, and small businesses are having to close shop because of that lack of immediate help or longevity. While an immediate break would help people survive, business owners are hopefully projecting their sustainability, and having a temporary break that turns into higher taxes later or no real long-term income to keep people on payroll will mean a band-aid turns into an infection.

    Will post a bit of this on my blog, http://www.joeryder.com/, as discussion.
