Social Media Glutton
I’m really, really excited and curious about where social media is headed. Each new platform has the potential to become the next unexpected (but obvious in retrospect) step in its evolution.
That’s why I feel it’s my duty and obligation to join as many social media platforms as possible…

Why I won’t be deleting Snapchat just yet
We’ve tasted Freedom of Information, and I don’t think we’re going to easily let go of it.
A Rolling Sunrise on Twitter
I happened to notice a few folks I follow on Twitter had posted sunrise photos today. Then the sun sent pink and gold rays into my own window, so I thought I’d join the chorus.

Everything Comes Together in the Lifestream

Twitter’s not a higher mountaintop to shout from, but a noisy brook and a chorus with which to sing.

NY Times: Exquisite Handling of Massive Content
Check out the beautiful page announcing the New York Times social network beta, MyTimes. It only displays if you haven’t already signed up, so I’ve placed a screenshot here:
