Others may never find traction at all. There are three major truisms in technology.

    [Wireless] Can You Take a Vacation From Social Media?
    hotel employee actually asked me if I had wireless, which was pretty amusing. Why haven’t you frontpaged yet? want to go for a swim already. The short answer: no. The longer answer: So I’ve been out for most of the week on vacation. Which got me to thinking – can you really take a vacation from social media? mean, how can you expose yourself to risking all those great tech/news nuggets like Wordpress 2.5 Release Candidate ? Once you have social media in your system, it’s hard to step away from all those RSS feeds and social sites. They’re in on it too.

I was initially going to write about dog weddings, the subject of nearly 60,000 Google results and 215 matches on YouTube , such as last week’s nuptials of schiperkes Cricket and Black Magic and a complementary blog post of the honeymoon at a Salem hotel 20 miles away. I was going to include educational links on hosting dog weddings and tips on including your best friend in your own wedding. They do.
