New must-read book available in pre-release!!! Congrats +Yalda T. Uhls!! Children spend more time with media than they do with parents or in schools, making their world somewhat foreign to parents who did not have early exposure to the Internet, mobile phones, and gaming. The key, says former film producer turned child psychologist Uhls, "is to understand the pros and cons of media to make informed decisions about cause and effect, boundaries and exposure." #mediamomsdigitaldads   #parenting   #parentingadvice   #newbook  #digitalage

Are you on #Flipboard ? I'm testing it out as a #curation platform with  magazines on #socialjustice, "SJW: There's nothing wrong with wanting to right the world", and forward thinking in #culture , #media , #tech & #digitallife . See what you think and say hi there!

I often see patterns emerging across all my information feeds, from thousands of sources in my realms of culture, media and publishing, technology, marketing, entrepreneurship and leadership. What bubbles to the surface across multiple fields is what’s in my larger future.

A reminder: you’re the curator of your own timelines. Let them be your advance warning system for sea-changes and meaningful shifts of all kinds.

Come ask me some questions?
