This is Why Google Scares the Sh*t Out of Companies

Wow. I mean really, WOW! One announcement of a Web based product that is currently inferior to your product that only runs on a very limited number of devices and your company looses Billions of dollars. Wow. This is what happened to TomTom and Garmin stock prices when Google announced Maps Navigation. I suspect their [...]

Pandora Makes Music Sharing on Twitter and Facebook Easier but not Music Blogging

Image by SqueegyX via Flickr I’ve had a music blog (kind of) for a while now - Wall-Notes. I say kind of because it’s a pretty effortless blog. And honestly it’s more like a link blog. When I listen to music in Pandora I figured out that there’s an RSS feed for the songs and [...]

The Time I was Written Up for Blogging

Image by Tac Anderson via Flickr About a year and a half ago I was written up for blogging. It was kind of a weird moment and I’ve never really talked about it much. It wasn’t that big of a deal but I thought I’d share how it happened and what I learned from it. [...]

Facebook Fan Pages are the New Microsite

The holy grail of data filtering in our over data flooded world is surfacing the quality content above irrelevant noise. This has proven to be the true value of Twitter. This strength is serious enough to [...]

Being a Social Media Ninja

I’ve blogged here almost every day but not yesterday. But I did post, A LOT not just here. Why? Well because I was putting into practice some of the things I’ve been talking about here and consulting on with my client. I actually got to get my hands dirty, something I don’t do much of [...]

Twitter and Distributed Influence

Last month I wrote about the dillema TechCrunch found themselves in after TwitterGate. The problem arose when Twitter removed TechCrunch from their Suggested User List (SUL). It now seems that Twitter has recently taken TechCrunch’s key rival, Mashable, off the list as well. This gives us an interesting point of comparison. The first graph here [...]
