On this week’s GeekWire radio show and podcast, we analyze Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s booming response to the question of whether he should resign, serve up some behind-the-scenes tidbits from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s visit to Seattle, and assess the impact of the new Google+ social networking service, unveiled this week by the search giant.

Joining us in the studio to talk about the latest in the Internet search business is Rand Fishkin, the CEO of SEOmoz, the Seattle-based search engine optimization software company. We also give the answer to last week’s Name that Tech Tune contest, and name the winners.

 Here’s the MP3 file for this week’s show.
