See you in Vancouver!!

Yup. I’ll be joining forces with my old friend Mark as we co-keynote at Northern Voice 2013! (Isn’t that the cutest social-media-conference-canadian-animal-mascot ever?) I’ve been wanting to go to Northern Voice ever since I heard of it. People who’ve attended both tell me the NV and PAB vibes are very Read On..

Podcasting lite

One of the things I always disliked about (audio) podcasting was having to link each episode to a blog post. I understood that podcasting grew out of blogging to a certain extent, but it bugged me to have to create blog posts, and make show notes or whatever. Video, somehow Read On..

Something useful from a comment thread

I know! I was surprised too! I was reading a comment thread about the new iBooks that (obviously) degenerated into the usual Pro/Anti Apple slop between haters and fanboys..

The ability to dislike

Somewhere, as social networking expanded online, the masses lost the ability to dislike stuff. I know, it’s because existing online is a wonderful kumbaya everyone loves everything everywhere kind of place, right?!

My three words

What a year. Went by in a blink didn’t it? I do hope it was good for you. I have no personal complaints about 2011, other than it did seem to go by faster than 2010 (which in turn went by faster than 2009, and so on…). I have a Read On..
