Survey Says…

The results are in! A while ago, I sent out a survey to you guys on Surveymonkey, and the responses were OVERWHELMING. Just kidding, a ton of people took the time to click the survey; a mere 17 of you took the time to complete it. To you 17...a sincere and heartfelt thanks... To the… Continue reading Survey Says…

4 Things You Can Do Instead Of (Or In Addition To) Participating In Vacuous Social Media Campaigns

First, I'd like to get something out of the way: I'm sorry. I'm sorry if you participate in social media campaigns; if you participated in today's big social media campaign (#bumpday).

STFU Fridays: Political Posters

I'm not sure if I've talked about political posters before, but we're going to have a little elaboration today for STFU Fridays. I mean it seems only appropriate now that the conventions are officially over and the vitriolic hate-mongering from both sides of the aisle is about to begin.

Almost anyone that has blogged has posted - at least once - about Facebook. It's a part of our daily stream of consciousness; and moreover, it's a relevant topic. I've posted about it at least twice, maybe three times. My favorite was about how Zuckerberg's got us all by the balls. Today I woke up… Continue reading Further Facebook Failures
