As many of you know, we are a compulsive networker. It’s part of our job. We meet a lot of you at the various functions we attend, and a number of you have asked us for introductions to people who could potentially help you to move the needle forward.

Good morning, All, and for today, a Missive to Social Media Week:

The larger networking events have their place, too, don’t get us wrong, but nothing wrong with having something for everyone. It’s March 15th, 8.30 am – 10. $20 with an RSVP or $25 at the door.

If yoIu believe that reinventing the wheel is a waste of time, you are sadly misinformed, unless you can somehow convince us that the guy who invented the very first one somehow managed to chisel a steel belted radial out of solid rock. Privacy is going the way of the dinosaur, thanks to Big Data – and so has trying to get meaningful search results using google. It has gotten so bad, we personally now google someone on linkedin – and we’re sure that there is at least one or two of you out there who does the same, and GOOG, thanks for the verb. This is not a diatribe: this is a cautionary tale: Read More...
