I was talking with a friend this morning about networking online. Specifically, how there is such a fine line between wasting time on social media and making productive use of social media. It’s a balance between entertainment and fun, and meaningful and useful. I shot a quick video last summer about one of the areas […]


Every week, Feature Friday will highlight something…cool. It might be a person, it might be a business. It could be a new product, a new site, a new book, a new idea. There are so many amazing people and stories out there that deserve more attention. Attention from all of you, my five, lovely readers. […]

Cuteness overload

May 31, 2011

You guys, I can’t handle it. A few minutes ago, cuteness exploded onto my television. And then, after a quick query, it infected my computer. And I’m not sure I can handle it. So I’m passing it along to you. Also: I dare you – double, triple, super dog DARE you – not to smile. […]
