An Apps in Judgment

March 26, 2013

Yessssssssss! Thanks to the lovely and generous Ava Naves of Online Strategy I’ve got me a spanking-new used iPhone 3, and thanks to the warnings of numerous friends I know not to update the basic software, lest it become confused  in typical outdated-tech-steve-wants-you-to-buy-another ways. By the way, Richard Branson, your Virgin Mobile staff (particularly at […]

Jobs: Analytics Engineer at Kiip

April 20, 2012

Got this from Kiip founder Brian Wong on Google+, if memory serves. He’s one of the most brilliant people I’ve ever met, with the ability to see the long-term effects of decisions. If I were going to work for any barely post-pubescent startup guy from Vancouver, it would be him. They’re also hiring a number […]

Those who’ve been following along on the Workshops page or the GCalendar will know that our Social Media for NonProfits course is co-taught with me and Wesley Regan of Building Opportunities With Business. Wes is the nonprofit communications specialist and I’m the social media specialist, so it works out to be a very well-rounded presentation […]

Storytelling: Antique vs Modern

April 27, 2010

Yep, there you have it: the decline and fall, summed up in two images. It’s a meme we’ve visited before. And I believe it was Fran Lebowitz, who said everything interesting which neither Shaw nor Wilde said, who said, “Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about things, and small people talk about wine.” […]

The Fashion Police

This will not end well. Neatorama reports that thanks to a company called Ping, clothing has now become sentient. It contains sensors that discern what you’re doing based upon your body movements and automatically updates your Facebook profile accordingly:Technology is integrated into the mechanics of the garment. For example, a sensor is entegrated into the […]
