GEOFF LIVINGSTON [Wireless] Life as a Walking Typo
| FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2012
My masters thesis on wireless Internet diffusion was published by the Strategis Group. Image by grafician. Yes, I know. There’s a typo. Almost everything I write has a typo. Before you rush to deliver an admonishment or advise about proofing more, the fine art of editing, blah, blah, blah, please wait. Believe it or not, I proof these posts, as many as five or six times before publishing. No matter how many times I proof an elusive typo seems to appear. Even the posts that seem OK always have a few sentences that could be tightened, more active, or simply rephrased. Baggage Alert.

After all, I never trained in public relations (fuhgeddabout social media), and my background is in Economics (probably why I like numbers so much) and drama, but I think I’m doing ok.

There are books on free Android apps and wireless apps, reference apps and geeky guides. Apple's lock on the iTunes application store is legendary. In contrast to more "open" marketplaces that don't rely on centralized editorial control, iTunes applications are hand-reviewed by Apple employees, and the company controls what gets in and what gets out, what applications are featured, and can take weeks or even months to give your application the thumbs up. As of now, the ruling looks overreaching - and to be honest, it's also wildly inconsistent with existing content already available.
