    [Blog] Want to Come to Hawaii? I’ve Got a Great Excuse for You
    Anyway, I don’t mean to be pitchy on this blog – I don’t get paid for this, other than my travel being covered (and a great getaway with my wife).  I just thought Andy Beal made a great point – this is an opportunity many of you shouldn’t pass! I hear there’s no better time to visit Hawaii than October.  It’s just when things are starting to get cold in many states in the U.S., and I hear the weather is great there. Well, 2 great reasons: $97 and Double Bonus Miles on Delta. Expo at the end of this month in New York is $4-5,000 full price.
    [Blog] The Next “Facebook Platform” for the Modern Web, and Why Twitter’s Running the Wrong Way
    Blogger obviously survived and is now one of the largest blogging platforms on the planet. I’ve talked previously about “the web with no login button&# , a vision of the Building Block Web that follows the user where they go, knowing who they are and adapting as they move. With the advent of mobile, entire operating systems running on the browser, cloud-based personal information stores and APIs such as Kynetx to manage both user and application data for the user, we are so close to being where we want to be! However I think it’s much bigger than that.

    He maintains a blog that serves as a vehicle for his commentary on transitioning into professional life. Guest post by Jon Ivanco , a lawyer in training and entrepreneur. On Thursday, Above the Law broke the story of the Diesel underwear ads that came out showcasing the lovely Brooklyn Law School library. This story is continuing to pop up all over my Twitter feed that is cued to search “law school.” The reality of the situation is wherever there is a scandal, social media is there, front and center and ready to help spread it. The library could be any library. Sex sells. Should we?

    You can connect with her on her blog. Guest post by Heather Whaling , co-moderater of #pr20chat. “If you build it, they will come” may have worked for Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams,” but it’s not a wise approach to social media (or any communication for that matter). Yet, we’ve all heard stories about companies that simply created a Twitter account or Facebook page without a plan – only to be disappointed in the outcomes. It’s now the fourth quarter of 2010, which means it’s time to begin planning for 2011. But, a solid social media plan isn’t enough. Plan Smart.

    [Blog] Fifteen Years of Online Social Interactions
    Blogs are the new medium for a person to talk about areas in which the individual has exhibited some level of expertise or even to articulate thoughts on subject matters that interest nobody but a small group of people. The cost: over $4k for a 386SX/25mhz with 170MB of hard drive space, 2MB RAM, a 2400 baud modem, and a 13″ monitor. I’m typing this blog post on a $750 Dell Inspiron 700m laptop (which I purchased nearly 3 years ago) which is lighter than the keyboard I used in 1993 and sports a high resolution despite its 12″ screen size.

    Bloggers affiliated with established media outlets, such as the LA Times Sport blog and, earned less trust than traditional media outlets, but significantly more trust than independent bloggers, who were at the bottom of that scale.
