It will be interesting to see how this 'Digg Dialogg' interview goes. I don't think they will be taking only softball questions, and I was impressed to see that Jim Lentz had a generic link to other Digg conversations about the Toyota recall issues, that were not cherry-picked by someone in the PR department. Toyota has taken a black eye on all the recall talk, both in the traditional media and in the social media. For a brand that is built on quality, safety and owner loyalty, Toyota should be working hard to make sure that it also understands that today's public not only gets its information from traditional media, but also 'talks' to a wider social media audience. The email I received this morning at least it makes it seems that Toyota 'Diggs' where we're coming from.
