I have quite the mega-series going on the Metal Toad blog on "The Successful Digital PM" - check it out!
Now that I've outlined the major areas to look for in a great Digital PM in previous posts, this post focuses on something equally important: finding those great PMs and getting them on board! Hiring can be a time-consuming process, but it's critical to get right given the crucial role PMs play ...

Okay, maybe it's just me, but looking at the rear end of the lighter colored chick...it looks like a bunny.

Or maybe I'm tired and seeing things.

I still wish there would be a mass exodus from Facebook, or that Facebook would just really clean up that crap interface.

Got a beta invite to Visualize.me and checked it out. Not bad!

Interesting idea. I don't know if the current implementation is that useful, but people are visual and there are probably a lot of things that we have only expressed textually but which are probably well suited to be described visually.

A panorama from the top of Mt. Constitution on Orcas Island in the San Juans. One of the highlights of a great vacation!

Check out my Kickstarter project to return to my remote birthplace of Adak, Alaska and create a photo essay/book in the process!
A pilgrimage to my remote Aleutian birthplace to share this beautiful, nearly forgotten island with the world.

+Mike Mathews Yep. It was about 10 different photos stitched together to get about a 180 degree view. We could see all the way to Mt. Adams behind Middle and North Sisters.

Any of my fellow Google Plussers need a Spotify invite? I realized I had a number of Twitter accounts with enough Klout to get them (though I've given away all but one at this point).

I don't have any more invites to hand out, but it doesn't look like Amanda has used her invite yet. Amanda, you still want it?

Introduction

I grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska, and came to Oregon for college.  I graduated in 2008 from the University of Oregon and was lucky enough to find a job straight out of school where I got to travel the country full-time on a marketing tour for six months. Now I'm settled in and loving life in Portland, Oregon working full-time, cycling, and exploring the city.

Work & Skills:

I graduated with double honors from UO with a Business degree and focuses in marketing and advertising/communication. I currently put those skills to use working in the tech industry doing marketing, project management, search engine optimization, social media planning and execution, and other types of digital marketing.

Things I’m into:

I’m an avid cyclist.  I’ve ridden bikes nearly my entire life and have been a competitive road cyclist for the last 5 years.  I raced on the University of Oregon Cycling Team for 4 years, and now I race for Team Oregon, a growing state-wide amateur cycling team.

I also run, golf, play some tennis, fenced in high school, and enjoy a multitude of other mainstream and not-so-mainstream sports.  I’m an outdoor enthusiast and I enjoy living in the Pacific Northwest.

I’m a technology geek.  I got into computers in elementary school, started building desktops in high school, and now I’m knowledgeable in everything from hardware to software to social media and digital design.  If it’s tech and it’s new, I’m into it.

I’m an amateur photographer.  I’ve been into photography for a while, but I only recently got myself a nice DSLR.  With affordable high-end cameras that take great pictures available for all, it’s tough to call yourself a good photographer these days.  I’d simply say I’m competent, and I enjoy geeking out learning more about it all the time.

I love food.  All kinds of food.  This goes well with the fact that I’m a cyclist, because I can eat and enjoy food, and lots of it.  Mexican, Thai, Italian, Greek, American, and anything else - you put it in front of me, it’ll disappear.
