Welcome to five ideas and one coffee. Each week, a combination of what's going on in the ongoing convergence of digital and social media, and how that impacts the way we communicate. Plus, something I learned about coffee this week.

See you next week. Hit reply if you've learned something, or if you'd like to suggest an idea or a coffee.
