Twitter has been great this week! I woke up (kinda late) this morning, grouchy and pissed off. Logged onto Twitter and what did I see? ?uestlove of The Roots shouted out my other blog, VerySmartBrothas.com, on Twitter (he has over 1.3M followers)! And yesterday? I got a DM (private direct message) from Jaleel White. Yes, […]

A while ago I got wind that actor/singer Tyrese Gibson had joined Twitter and was begging people to follow him. I knew this because Tyrese hijacked MC Hammer’s Twitter account and was telling people to follow him. I didn’t pay him any mind because although I like his music, and I think he is very […]

The time has finally come–GRAMMY festivities are in full swing for me and my fellow Community Blogging comrades. My schedule is about to get pretty crazy between now and Sunday night. I just wanted to invite you all to follow me on Twitter as I cover some GRAMMY events (official and unofficial) this weekend. Some […]

My first piece for GRAMMY.com was posted on Friday! You can read it here: 10 Ways The GRAMMYs Are Taking Over The Social Web. It may or may not sound a bit over-indulgent, but I truly was impressed with all the social and digital initiatives the Recording Academy has produced. I spent an afternoon earlier […]

Stop The Startup Madness

November 13, 2009

in #Tech,Startups

It’s not often I read anything said by Robert Scoble and agree with everything he has said 100%. I find I disagree with him more often than not, but usually that’s somewhere in the Twittersphere or Friendfeed-ersphere. Either way, he’s spot on with his post, The worst things startups do. If you don’t know who […]

A few days ago we installed the second round of additions to the WIRED SCIENCE Facebook application (which I discussed first here). We gave the application more elements (10 elements, instead of 5), more compounds (55 compounds instead of 15), and I redesigned the quiz algorithm (and added one more question). Take the test again […]

Although it wasn’t quietly kept on my Twitter stream, yesterday was my birthday. I just wanted to take the time to thank all my followers on Twitter that sent me Happy Birthday tweets. Lately I have been pretty amazed at how your own personal Twitter families are at times an instant cheerleading section. On graduation […]

Four Days Off The Grid

April 17, 2008

in Personal

It’s been four whole days since I officially took myself off the grid (meaning off the internet). I am pretty much continuously on the grid. Between my twitter, my feeds, my iPhone and e-mail, I am pretty much connected to the web at all times. Try and catch me by phone, or in real life? […]

A quick post over at Web Worker Daily asks are we entering a Post-Reader era? I think for me, the answer is yes. Since September of last year, I’ve been struggling with my Google Reader. Every time I look up, my unread count is over 1000 posts. I just can’t keep up. I subscribe to […]

For the past six months, I’ve been experimenting with different internet video broadcasting formats. I’m not sure why, as I don’t have any personal interest to be in front of the camera, regularly. I’m quite shy when it comes to strangers, so naturally, broadcasting myself via video (live, or taped) would practically be a nightmare […]
