Creativity, Innovation, Leadership and Market Disruption: Lessons From An Underdog

Please bear with me while I uncharacteristically talk about sports. I promise I won’t do it again for a while. My love of Boise State football is perplexing to most people that know me. Sure on paper it makes sense. I’m from Boise and am a two time BSU alumni, receiving both my BA in Communications and [...]

Apparently Yammer Thinks I Can’t Manage Yammer Myself

I don’t get this, I really don’t. I just got an email from Yammer telling me I can’t follow everyone at my company (pasted below). Why does Yammer care how many people I follow? According to them it’s because of their experience that creates a bad user experience. Do you know how many posts a [...]

One I pushed live yesterday and a few others like this one that I’ll be editing [...]

What You Can Learn From Hunter S Thompson About Getting A Job In Social Media

I look around in the social media space and it amazes me how far we’ve come. The pundits, thought leaders and leading practitioners today at brands, startups and at agencies were the geeks living in the space, blogging and testing every new product that came out just a few short years ago. We are the [...]

Social Media Strategy the Presentation

Based on my previous post on social media strategy I was asked to speak at the Social Media for Defense conference, next week in Washington, DC. The thought of presenting social media strategy to the military was far to cool an opportunity to pass up. Now the irony of a business strategist talking about strategy [...]

First off let’s just realize that anytime Facebook or any major website changes something that a significant percentage of the sites users will complain.
