My First Video Blog Post!

Spurred on by David Burch's 10 Reasons You Should Post Your Video Today while at WordCamp Detroit, I've created my first video blog post. I talk about being thankful (Canadian Thanksgiving), TEDxDetroit, WordCamp Detroit, 140 Character Conference Detroit, and the 10/10/10 campaign to stop child trafficking. David Burch's 10 Reasons You Should Post Your Video Today You obviously have a reason to do video if you bought all that equipment. 80% of success is just showing up. Success Continue reading

Better Than Reality TV: I LOVE These Guys! Chevy SXSW

Better Than Reality TV: I LOVE These Guys! Chevy SXSW

I am so not a reality tv buff, but I think the Chevy Challenge should be a made-for-tv reality show. The concept is brilliant. Yay Chevy! Take four community and social media active people from 9 locations across the USA. Give them a Chevy to drive from their home city to the South by Southwest Conference & Festival. Enroute they are required to complete 50 challenges, with the winner getting an epic Chevy sponsored tweetup in their hometown. (You can suggest a challenge here! I Continue reading

30 Days of Thanks – Day 5

I expected today to be a somewhat challenging day to feel thankful... unless it was for my lawyer or for Lori Williams who helped me find her. (@loritwilliams) What I found instead was many, MANY additional reasons to be grateful. One of those reasons is a twitter friend that goes by the name of ShopperAnnie.

I've followed Annie for a while and she's such a wonderfully warm tweeter, I knew she'd Continue reading

The Social Media “Village Green” is the Place for Local Businesses to Meet

The Social Media “Village Green” is the Place for Local Businesses to Meet

Social media is creating the online villages, towns and cities of the future. Instead of a geographic center of town, each is centered around common interests. Our new virtual realtionships can be broken down into 3 types of communities: Cities hold millions of people, and so do large social media platforms. Belonging to a social network of Mom's is like hanging out in a bustling city center where there's generalized conversation and a wide variety of things to see and do (or click Continue reading
