Tweet …Don’t wipe your hands on my drapes. That’s not what they’re for, you know? I use ’em to keep the windows covered, or at the very least as decoration. If you’re like me, your home is your place, where you have your own rules. When you visit someone else’s house, you don’t conduct yourself […]

Tweet I woke up this morning with a post in mind, ready to be written, until I came across this post on ActiveRain. Before I get into it here, let me say that I am NOT going to comment on the politics here, which is the exact point I want to make. On a site that […]

Tweet I went to an uber-liberal Quaker school for the majority of my formative years. Hippies reigned supreme, we didn’t have a football team, and competition was deemed “not in the spirit of Friends.” In my freshman year of Upper School (high school), I learned two things in gym class (before it went independent study, basically […]

Tweet Happy New Year, everyone. We’ve reached the first Monday of 2010, and with it comes the steely resolve to keep the promises we made to ourselves on Friday (weekends don’t count, right? We always start on Monday). I call shenanigans on that. TOTAL shenanigans. Resolutions are nothing more than promises designed to be broken.We […]

Tweet http://www.flickr.com/photos/dpstyles/ / CC BY 2.0“> Have you heard about foursquare? For the uninitiated, it’s game where you earn points by visiting different points of interest in a city (nightclubs, restaurants, museums, etc.). Visit a place more often than everyone else and BOOM, you’re the Mayor. It’s simple, fun and extremely addictive (especially when you’re […]

Tweet I spent the wee hours of this morning walking down San Bruno road in the dark and the cold, walking over the 101 and into the San Francisco Airport until my father picked me up and took me to the airport monorail. Why, you ask? Well, to be honest, it’s kind of mix of […]

Tweet …or so says my lovely wife Jennifer. We were driving to dinner last night, discussing a recent plumbing crisis my cousin had. Flooding was involved, just so you know. Her husband spent the day working on the problem and was able to fix it with a little help. In talking to my wife, I […]

Tweet I hear it all the time when it comes to social media: “How much time is this going to take?” “How much time should I spend on this?” “I don’t have the time for this.” People look at the dizzying array of social media tools and instantly think that their time will be monopolized […]

Tweet As more and more companies and professionals adopt social media, they tend to just rush in and get started. I believe those people are setting themselves up for disappointment when they don’t see money come rolling in, or when the 10,000 followers they’ve quickly amassed on twitter aren’t visiting their site or buying from […]

Tweet I found out about this great video from friend and social media speaker Ricardo Bueno – I think it very nicely paints the picture of the world today, the shifts that have occurred so far in the social landscape, and the idea that social media is not a “fad”, and that those who refuse […]
