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.

I’m Here, I’m There, I’m Everywhere!

Apologies to Dr, Seuss, and to you, my readers, but sometimes you just get so busy that you forget you haven’t updated your blog in far too long (yeah, I know, Bad Neal). So here’s a quick rundown of some things I’ve done recently and some things that are on their way.

Understanding Twitter, Presented to the Center City Proprietors Association

On February 17, I gave a lecture to members of the Center City Proprietors Association called Understanding Twitter. It was a really fun event and I’d like to thank the CCPA for inviting me to present, everyone who attended (you were a great audience) and the law firm of Caesar, Rivise, Bernstein, Cohen & Pokotilow for hosting the event. I’ll be posting the PowerPoint deck shortly, but here are some pictures.

That's me!

Upcoming Speaking Events

Over the next few months, I’ll be presenting at several events. Some of them are listed below, but several others are still in the planning stages, so stay tuned. Details will be announced shortly. I hope to see you there.

  • April 20: Center for Architecture Spring Seminar Series
  • TBD: Social Media 101: How to use Social Media for Fun & Profit
  • TBD: JobCamp: Using Social Media to Find a New Job
  • TBD: PhillyTweetUp: We coming back with a new format and locations.

Also in this podcast:

  • Neal Presented “Understanding Twitter” to Philadelphia’s Center City Proprietor’s Association
  • PR nightmare: How fat is too fat for Southwest Airlines (ask Kevin Smith)?
  • Schools spying on your kids via their Webcams
  • Seth’s Pick of the Week: Google Buzz
  • My Pick of the Week: Yoono

Talking About SaveNASA

On February 3, I was a special guest on the Talking Space Podcast discussing President Obama’s budget proposal for NASA and its implications for the future of American human spaceflight. You can listen to the podcast here. If it sounds a bit choppy, that’s because the conversation was cut from over 2 hours to about one. Sorry about that.

The Talking Space crew also discussed my SaveNASA movement back on November 29, 2009. You can listen to that podcast here (Jump to the 19 minute mark to hear them discuss SaveNASA).
And Finally…

Read my post about Facebook’s Nefarious Plot to Destroy Email Forever! (and Own YOU in the Process) originally posted on Addicted to Social Media back on January 20.

Enjoy!

I’m Back.

EmergingHi, and thanks for visiting. I’m finally coming back from a blogging break. I’ve been doing a lot of writing recently, but most of it not for blogs. While I’ll be getting back up to speed over the next few weeks, here is a quick post I wrote for Addicted to Social Media called, “The Three (+) Principles of How to Approach Social Media.” It’s about what I usually tell clients who ask me to explain Social Media to them (please check it out and leave a comment).

What else have I been up to?

More to come…
