How Unofficial Activity Drives Innovation: Lessons from Google, 3M and Pitney Bowes

Something about September makes me yearn for a new side project to tackle. I chalk it up to a combination of back-to-school withdrawal, the crisp fall air and my general inclination towards multitasking. I read a Wall Street Journal article about a new concept the author dubbed “work-work balance,” juggling your main work duties with more experimental side projects. The concept is intriguing and...

Ten Years After 9/11 – Words and Remembrance

The 10th anniversary of the attacks on 9/11 is well behind us now and I was not planning to write a post about it. I stayed away from much of the media coverage, as I did ten years ago. The farewell voicemails from husbands, wives, mothers and fathers, and the footage of people jumping from the towers was a heartbreak I could not relive. But then I finally picked up the September 12 issue of The...

Social Media and the NHL: Let’s Not Ruin a Good Thing

The National Hockey League unveiled its social media policy yesterday, and as you might expect with anything ending with the word “policy,” there’s the potential it will take the fun out of hockey players using social media. This move wasn’t unexpected: the NHL is following suit after the three other major U.S. sport leagues set their respective policies/rules. The NHL is actually kinda sorta...

WebInno31 Summary

This week’s WebInno is in the books. It was a good event. Several of the participating companies were sales or marketing focused which created more consistency than at some past WebInno events. I wrote a preview of the event (you can find it here). The previews are always fun to write because they’re not really based on much but my initial impression of the various sites and services. The...

The Mess of Conflicts of Interest: Consider the Source

The recent controversy surrounding Michael Arrington’s decision to start a new venture fund while continuing to run TechCrunch that ultimately ended in his departure  from the blog he founded (he appeared at TechCrunch Disrupt wearing a green t-shirt that read “Unpaid Blogger”) and the public berating of Arianna Huffington is just one blip in a history of conflicts of interest in the press.

How Playing, Reading & Singing Improves Your Writing

Recently, I caught up with a pal who teaches a writing course to students at a local college. We were discussing whether the ability to write well is innate or if it has to be learned. We agreed that the answer lies somewhere between the two – some people have the natural ability to express themselves succinctly and elegantly, others need to be taught. I’m sure that maturity plays a role too.

Social Media as a Ubiquitous Force? Not Quite

I came across a Mashablearticle the other day that stopped me in my tracks. Shockingly, only 50 percent of adults in the U.S. use social media, according to a new survey by Pew Internet. Being entrenched for so long in a field where social media is ubiquitous (in fact, it’s a primary job requirement), I had a hard time believing that this could really be true. That is, until I got a call from my...
