The Internet Time Warp: The Web Never Forgets

January 11, 2011


  A post on CBS Interactive’s Bnet (link) articulated an important business lesson about social media from the recent attention on political rhetoric. The media’s had their fun and pundits on both sides of US politics have done their finger-pointing. In particular, we can’t help but bring up Sarah Palin. Well, everyone likes a rebel […]

The Value of a Good Theme

January 10, 2011


For those of you who may have tripped over this blog in the last two years, you’ll notice that things look different. It took me a few hours, but I changed my blog’s theme over the weekend.  It looks different and it’s going to probably sound a little different too. The value of this new […]

The Joys of Fresh Ground Coffee

2011: Doing, Finish, Being

Finish, Doing, Being

As a fan of Chris Brogan, I was quick to catch on to his three words idea instead of resolutions. I was never a fan of resolutions. I’d break them by Jan 2 and then feel guilty the rest if the year. No, the idea of having three words to reflect on gives you some […]
