The other day, like most days, I was playing around on Facebook. Someone in my online community posted a video from CNN and in the text box they wrote, "Congrats Qasim!" I saw this and did a double take. I knew that name! I clicked on the link to view the video and voila it was Qasim Basir. Years ago, Qasim and I attended middle school and high school together. I decided to track him down, so I did what another other social media guru would do. I reached out to him via his Facebook, Twitter, and website and guess what? A couple hours later, he called me at work. Wow, social media rules!

Movie trailer, my interview with Qasim, and more all after the jump!
