Social Media is Just a Big Game

As a proud member of Gen X I have fond memories of my Atari 2600.If you are reading this chances are you had an Atari, Nintendo 64 or Sega Genesis and chances are even greater you have an Xbox, Wii or Sony Play Station in your home right now. In fact to carry this even [...]

Facebook Takes on Google Reader: Who Said RSS is Dead?

I’ve been playing around with Facebook. Both how to promote brands on Facebook as well as how users consume content within the walled garden (hint: there’s a direct correlation between the two). As blogs and media networks extend their reach using Facebook Pages, I noticed something interesting: Facebook can be used as an RSS reader. [...]

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this yet. Last year Alan Wolk asked me to be on the board for a new project he was working on, The Hive Awards. I loved the idea immediately and happily jumped on board. The Hive Awards are designed to reward all the unsung heroes of the internet: [...]

Barack Obama vs Steve Jobs: Battle of the Super Presenters

Being Trustworthy Isn’t About Feeling Good, It’s Smart Business

The goal of a Transparent Strategy is to *have* trust. To have trust in others and to have the trust of others. [...]

This is Why Advertising on Twitter is Wrong…for Twitter

Image via Wikipedia This month has seen a flurry of activity regarding Twitter’s growth rate. Does it really matter what Twitter’s growth rate is? Does it matter if Twitter ever gets close to the size of Facebook? Only if they plan to monitize with advertising which they swore for years they wouldn’t do. That is [...]

Hiding in Plain Sight. Fighting Privacy with Noise.

Not everyone is comfortable living in public. Some of us are pretty comfortable with it, but everyone is a little nervous about it. If you’re not you should be. There’s a simple solution. Not perfect but somehow poetic. Image by R’eyes via Flickr Here’s the fact: There is information about every single one of you [...]
