    [Blog] How Your Cub and Girl Scouts (and Youth) are Being Cheated in the Personal Manufacturing Era
    For long-time followers of this blog, you are well aware of my passion for 3D printing, and predictions for the disruption of modern manufacturing within just years from where we now stand. 'Our youth are in for a wake-up call when they grow up. Gone will be blue-collar work. Gone will be factory and manual labor jobs. Gone will be construction and mechanical jobs. The fact is, machinery, robotics, and computer programming are replacing all of this, in favor of devices average families can buy and set up in their living rooms. It''s already happening in fact. If you have kids.

    [Blog] Day-to-Day Social Media for Business: Tip 2 – Thank Your Customers By Name
    There are some who hold their Facebook profiles sacred and refuse to interact with anyone other than Aunt Tilley and the nephews in Georgia, but most have accepted that Facebook is only partially personal (which is a topic of another blog post in the future). This post is part of a series titled 10 Ways to Use Social Media for Day-to-Day Business. Every day we will be expanding upon a new tip until the list is complete. As a child, you were hopefully taught good manners. When people did things, you thanked them. Social media has opened the door to thanking people in a whole new way.

    [Blog] 2010: The Social Media Year in Review for Bloggers

If you’re someone who runs an online business, you’ll have realized that social media has joined the ranks of SEO as a must-do activity (and, for some, has started to rival the number of traffic referrals sent, too). Are you participating? If you’re not participating in social media, you’re missing out on a lot. In fact, every minute, 24 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube. The bottom line.

    [Blog] Debate: Do All Community Managers Need Social Media?
    This is my response to the twitter debate and that blog post. Photo cred: Rishi Bandopadhay. Seems that a lot of people are under the impression that all community managers have to use social media. Social media is one tool.  It’s one of the many tools available to marketers, community managers, PR professionals etc. It is not a requirement for all roles that a community manager could possibly take on. On twitter, I had a long debate with Alana Joy on this topic.  This discussion led to this post on the ever insightful social media explorer.  don’t know…maybe it can.  Maybe.

    [Blog] Three Ways to Avoid the 5K Fundraising Event
    You can find her blog here and like them on Facebook. Today’s post is written by  Linda Olatunde. Most nonprofits stick to some of the tried and true fundraising events to support their organization, raise money, build supporters, and gain wider recognition throughout the community. These events are the annual 5K run and the banquet dinner. As PR professionals and marketers, we take our clients’ requests to get the word out and promote these standard fundraising events in all of the traditional ways. Not quite. The strategy behind putting together a 5K is effective.
