Ricky Shetty is a tireless connector, networker, and internet powerhouse who has, like many people who have these skill sets, decided to integrate his work and his non-work life more directly, and the result: Daddyblogger.com. He asked me a few days ago if I’d do a Google Hangout, so I said yes and the power […]

The Rush with Fiona Forbes: Talking Bitcoin

February 13, 2014

2

It’s finally up: here is me on The Rush with Fiona Forbes, talking about Bitcoin basics. Note to self: de-um my speaking voice and wear more makeup next time. I told her before the cameras rolled that I would be nervous, except I see her on FB every day, so it was just like talking […]

Job: Strategic Account Manager at HootSuite

August 30, 2013

Whatever that is. Got this job from a Facebook post from the highly informed Wayne Shaddow. Not a tech position; sales and account management. HootSuite is a terrific company with great people, many of whom are personal friends of mine, and I hear that it’s a – yes – hoot to work there. Although you […]

Job: Social Media Manager, Blink Media Works, Gastown

October 1, 2012

0

This job came via LinkedIn, appropriately enough almost like a flashback. Jeez, remember 2006? Didn’t it seem like actually DOING social media would be the way to that income you turned your back on when you refused to go to law school? It’s been many years since Gastown’s tech scene featured the Friday Night beer […]
