Fifty-two years: Technology, social media, and me (and you)

I turned 52 today; I’ve seen over a half century of some of the most amazing changes in our world. I remember when we started locking our outside doors … when I was 6. Milk and potato chips were delivered to our basement door every week. There was no voice mail or answering machines or […]

Recap of the #140conf in Los Angeles

I arrived at the Henry Ford Music Box Theatre 15 minutes before registration – I’ve lived in LA long enough to know you leave early if you want to make sure you arrive on time, thank you LA traffic. The theatre is a very cool place; I was most impressed with the interior, which is […]

TriMirror – Crowdsourcing fashion

I found TriMirror (http://www.trimirror.com/), or perhaps it found me, thanks to @Bellpopping.  I’ve been dabbling in fashion related web stuff for a while now – I was a beta member of Swirl and I’ve started watching the Rachel Zoe Project and subscribed to her newsletter, among other bits. When Basya suggested I take a look […]

Like button stamp

Nation, a design studio, decided to make Like and Dislike rubber stamps that mimic the Like button from Facebook. When I saw them, I had to have them, so I ordered them. And they arrived today – here’s a sample: I can’t wait to stamp a paper at work with the Like stamp! Translate

The #140conf LA meetup May 10

I finally had time to crank up Photoshop and clean up pictures I took with my new iPhone. I had a great time, although I didn’t meet everyone I wanted to meet at the event; I did get to use the Bump app (thanks Linda!) and did meet some fun folks. And the speakers were […]

Facebook Connect: Without an SLA, can you trust it with your business?

I was just listening to a SpoolCast podcast, “SpoolCast: Moving Beyond Static Forms with Luke Wroblewsk.” Mr. Wroblewski talked about the value of Facebook Connect in speeding up and simplifying the form-based process for registration, especially for social media web sites. This reminded me of a huge issue I just had with Facebook, one that […]

Why unfollowing everyone is un-Twitter

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and I think @ev is wrong; I think unfollowing almost everyone is a bad idea. Let’s say you only follow a few people; why should a lot of people follow you? Because you tweet good content? That turns Twitter into a broadcast medium, which I think would […]

How @purplehayz tweets

Introduction This post was started because I get asked regularly if I ever sleep. I do, typically from 10P Pacific time til about 4:30A each night (regular sleep hours are best after all). But, you might not know that if you look at my tweet stream, since I have tweets happening at all hours of […]
