  • Wondering why people follow me on Twitter?

    About 6 months ago I got curi­ous as to why people were fol­low­ing me on Twit­ter. Basic­ally I asked them… and then found out some rather inter­est­ing things, both about why they were fol­low­ing me and also about the evolving etiquette around Twit­ter interactions. This has turned into a two-part post. Ini­tially I was going […]

  • A few Twitter tips for TV media

    Recently I had the oppor­tun­ity to help intro­duce a loc­al TV news anchor to the rather con­vo­luted world of Twit­ter, via Twit­ter.

Today’s inaug­ur­al item is par­tic­u­larly timely as we head into a reces­sion with […]

  • Cosmetically tweaking the laptop

    Did you notice how laptops and net­books are quickly becom­ing fash­ion accessor­ies? Rather than tot­ing around the dull black or obsidi­an tab­let, folk are car­ry­ing around cus­tom­ized art­work, pimped and detailed to the point that the lowly laptop rivals any­thing Chip Foose would do to a clas­sic Chevy. Heck, someone even laser-etched all the levels […]
