  • The Social Media Evolution

    The Make Me Smart Podcast episode 96: Do it for the ‘gram had an interesting quip that Instagram was what the Facebook News Feed was before it got corrupted by ads and political arguments: the trivialities of our daily lives. All social networks became popular because of trivialities. “What’s on your mind?” THAT is what […]

  • 18th Anniversary of Blogging

    Here is my first blog post from 18 years ago, which makes it as old as a legal adult. Wow… Two Footballs I got started at a place called Diaryland. A friend, Lacey, had started using it. Back in those days, I was up for trying pretty much anything geeky friends were doing. Blogging was […]

  • Buffer Feature Requests

LinkedIn allows 700, and Google+ / Facebook allow about five thousand. I like to post things with a quote from the articles I share that captures what I found most interesting about it. […]

Especially funny for me because the product I run is the Blackboard Learning Management System Vista Enterprise. We just call it “Vista”. (Yes, very confusing when Windows Vista users want to know the compatibility of Vista with Vista. The […]

  • Follow on Google+ Too…

    Nearly two weeks ago, Google+ launched Pages, a version of a person profile for non-people. (Google does know the Supreme Court deemed corporations people too, right? So corporations should have a person profile.) Companies desiring a social media presence have created a page in addition to their Facebook pages, Tumblr, and Twitter accounts. Over the […]

  • Tumblr

    I’m not a fan of Tumblr. At the moment I use it for a partial life stream (a chronological aggregated view of your life activities both online and offline – thanks Krynsky). It is just publishing a feed of several of my blogs. It a very limited public view. The one main thing I dislike […]
