    [Social Media] Dice.com: Louis Gray on Google and Job Hunting
    Last fall, shortly after I joined Google , + Michelle Greenlee contacted me for a quick interview about the Google hiring experience, and what tech-savvy job seekers can do to leverage the influence of social media to influence hiring managers.

The story was finally posted this morning. More: louisgray.com | RSS | E-mail | Cell: 408 646.2759.

My friends actually make jokes about how many tabs I’ve had at once.  I’d have so many tabs open that I’d forget that I already have a hootsuite tab open and I’d open another one. Turns out people post a lot of links on twitter and facebook, so I’d obviously have to click them. It became a habit.

    [Social Media] What Marathon Training Can Teach You About Blogging
    You can join a membership site like the Third Tribe or Exploring Social Media. [Thrilled to have this guest post from Laura Click. Enjoy!]. Three years ago, I would have never dreamed I would run a half marathon. In fact, prior to January 2010, the longest I had ever run in my life was two miles – and that was in high school. Now, I have three half marathons under my belt and I’m training for my fourth race next month. Yes, it’s hard. But, it’s incredibly rewarding. Much like blogging. In fact, long-distance running and blogging have quite a bit in common. Don’t believe me?
