Bookmark and Share

I had to run a few errands, starting with a stop at the bank. As I was “checking in” via Foursquare, I thought to myself. How boring is this? Time to play…

Why Do I Blog? It smells of rich mahogany.

Bookmark and Share

I don’t blog as much as I’d like to, but I’ve done it off and on since 1997.  Why is that? Jeff Hilimire, President of Engauge (the awesome agency where I work) posted a call to others to explain why they blog and so I started to write a comment on his post and found [...]

LinkedIn: I have many leather-bound books.

Bookmark and Share

Ahem… I was LinkedIn Member #8,828.  Jeff Hilimire beat me to blogging about his number, but I beat him to LinkedIn.  Yeah, baby!  This one’s for you Jeff!  Boo-Yah!!!  Who’s the bad ass?!?!?  INNOVATOR!

Getting Physical With Social Media

Bookmark and Share

Sorry kids. I’m not talking about the latest trend in Facebook dating or the best strategy for a 2am tweet to get you a little… hmm, hmm. Perhaps we’ll talk about that another time.

Social Anxiety Creates a Whole Lot of Social Media Noise

Bookmark and Share

Online, people are resorting to just pointing at stuff as the alternative to speaking. People are “contributing” by just tweeting/pointing at everything they can get their mouse on. Is this some sort of new social anxiety complex that needs its own label maybe? Perhaps the thought process is that such action allows them to somehow be a part of the perceived “social media party” because tweeting links somehow makes them a part of the club, adds social value and gains clout… all without the risk of putting themselves in the line of fire. Keep your thoughts to yourself and just point? Obsessive share zombies.

Your Refrigerator: Smart And Social?

Bookmark and Share

I’m fascinated by how technologies affect our lives and I guess because I’m a bit creative, I have a tendency to brainstorm and think aloud.  I explore possibilities, share my thoughts and ideas, even at the risk of sounding ridiculous at times.  I love interacting with people who do the same.  This morning I was [...]

And so it begins… another contrived blog?

Bookmark and Share

No.  Not really.  (Well… at least not for now.) It’s the first post! Relax.  I’m not trying to become another wannabe blogging superstar hack. Frankly, I just created this as sort of a digital brain dump to fulfill a need for me to park my thoughts and share some stuff every once in awhile with [...]
