I just took +Cliff Baldridge  Helpout "Make Money on YouTube How to" by Cliff Baldridge. I highly recommend him - I learned more in 30 minutes than I've learned from all the courses and posts I've read in the past 5 years!

Use my code JUZOFS3UA to get $25 towards your first Helpout. Let me know how you liked it! #Helpouts

3D Printed band instruments were not only exhibited, but also played at Inside 3D Printing at Javitts Center in NYC this week.

They also sounded really good!

At Inside 3D Printing conference, Intel’s futurist Brian David Johnson offered the schematics and AI code for people to 3D print Jimmy, the 21st century robot

Working with a team of Intel researchers and engineers through Intel’s 21st Century Robot initiative, Johnson has created files for Jimmy - an open source robot that can be printed on a 3-D printer and programmed to do whatever you might like

Johnson calls Jimmy “kind of like a smart phone with legs” 

Johnson’s team has already shared the template for a pilot robot, Jimmy, with 10 teams at various universities, to download, print, and program their own smart mascots.
 Best of all, this technology is already here. In May 2014, Johnson’s 21st Century Robot event will unveil new robots created by 10 university teams–the first open source robotics 

You can download a free copy of Johnson's upcoming science fiction book, 21st Century Robot at

As a leader in social media marketing, I created the renowned, precedent-setting Up Your Budget Treasure Hunt for Cendant.

This 4-week, 16-city search for $160K in cash was the first-ever entirely blog-based viral marketing campaign, promoted exclusively through blogger outreach and blog advertising.

In only four weeks, it generated a million unique visits, over 10 million page views, and more than 300 online and offline stories – for less than the cost of a 30-second national ad on network TV.

I conceived, edited and launched and the 25-author blog-based online community Clutter Control Freak, for Stacks and Stacks a California-based top 300 Internet retailer of products for home and office organization. Launched in July 2007, the blog was recently voted one of the Top 10 Business Blogs.

My articles and case studies about Internet marketing trends appear in MarketingProfs, MediaPost, Businessweek Online, and several other publications.

Before turning my talent to the Internet in 1995, I ran an award-winning New York PR firm that I grew to one of the 100 largest independent PR firms in the US, with clients including Stew Leonard’s, Miracle-Gro Plant Food, The American Dairy Association, Kaneka Corporation (Tokyo: JKFC) and many more.
