Let the Countdown Begin. New Website FINALLY Coming!

Let the Countdown Begin

New website FINALLY in development, but it’s like one of those secret military space shuttle launches where they only gave you a launch “window.” My window: later this month. ;)

Stay tuned.

URGENT Message to Facebook Users

FoteFacebook is changing their Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. These changes will directly impact your use of Facebook and what happens to your content. While Facebook is offering users the opportunity to vote on the outcome, they are also requiring more than 30% of their active user-base to vote for that vote to be binding. If turnout is less than 30%, the vote will be “advisory.”

This means that over 300,000,000(!) people must cast a vote for the changes to be binding.

Additionally; YOU ONLY HAVE 5 DAYS TO VOTE! (As of 12/5/12. Voting will end on December 10 at 12:00PM (PST) / December 10 at 8:00PM  (GMT).).

300,000,000 people in 5 Days!!!

IMPORTANT NOTE: 

I have serious reservations about this process and find it significantly flawed. Reaching the required 300,000,000 votes in 5 days (and making sure people understand what they’re voting for) is not realistic and probably not possible. After all, two years of nearly continuous campaigning resulted in less than half that number voting in the U.S. Presidential Election and what was/is at stake in that election absolutely dwarfs what you’re voting for on Facebook.

However…

I absolutely encourage you to understand the issues (see links below) AND VOTE!

Why?

While I do not believe that Facebook will honor the results (Facebook has a long history of deceiving their users and there is no reason to believe that this will change), I could be wrong (and hope I am).

So, please click on the links below. Learn about the issues, AND VOTE!

And Good Luck to us all (PLEASE Share).

About Flash Mobs

Just catching up a bit. Back in January, I was interviewed by Pete Croatto of Suburban Life Magazine for an article on flash mobs. You can read the post here. Enjoy.

btw; In an earlier post I mentioned that a new version of this website is coming. I just wanted to let you know that it’s still in the works, but it is on its way. The delays are simply due to my workload. Clients come first.

2012 and All is Well

As I write this post on the first day of the New Year, I’m filled with excitement and optimism. 2011 was a year filled with unfulfilled promises. Fortunately, some major changes mid-year improved the situation dramatically allowing me to both complete over a dozen major projects and to “reset” my business in preparation for the coming year which has now arrived.

I’ve invested in new tools, such as the new MacBook Pro I’m writing this post on, and I’ve realigned my personal and professional strategies to allow me to work faster and more efficiently than ever before. I’ve got a new website coming (it’s almost done!) and I’m launching several new initiatives that I’ll be very excited to share with you in the very near future.

While I’ll be discussing things in greater detail in future posts, I will also be posting much more frequently this year on a variety of topics including the following:

  • Social Media &Interactive Marketing
  • Tools (app reviews and “How To” posts)
  • eBooks (I’ve got several coming out soon)
  • Events (speaking and training seminars)
  • Writing (both screenwriting and fiction that I’ll be sharing)
  • And much more!

I hope you will join me this year, both here and via my social media outlets; Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ (which will be a major focus for me in 2012). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing, sharing and helping you in 2012 and beyond!

And Happy New Year!

Create & Deploy Your Own QR Codes (Updated)

The Class

On November 10, 2011, I had the pleasure of presenting “Create & Deploy Your Own QR Codes” to a small class for the Center City Proprietor’s Association in Philadelphia. It was a really fun giving this presentation. If you’d like to see it, can download it from Slideshare.com (for some reason, embedding isn’t working – sorry about that).

I may repeat this class in a few weeks as a webinar. Please let me know if you’re interested by commenting on this post.

Also, I added a QR Code Campaign Worksheet at the end of the presentation which should help you organize you campaigns when using QR Codes. If you have any questions about QR Codes, the presentation or the services I offer, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks to the CCPA, Audrey Julienne and the attendees.

Enjoy!
