I like the NHL's website from 25 years ago.

Journalists still ambivalent about social media.

A year ago there was mumbling in Fast Company and other places about whether the blog was dead. As a blogger I don't agree — but that's evidently self-serving. However, I think it's important to remember that blogging in many places is an expression of — and vehicle for — freedom. The Bobs award for online activism is a helpful reminder.

Mark Schaefer may be right when he says that "content marketing is not a sustainable strategy". One solution — become better at creating engaging content and combine it with paid media to drive people to find it.

The pessimist's view of the future of digital life: "[I]t seems that being online augments humans’ tendencies toward all of the ‘seven deadly sins’: envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath.”
From augmented reality to cat videos, big thinkers weigh in on where the Internet is after 25 years, and where it will be in 10 more.

Story
Tagline
Senior digital strategist, writer and consultant
Introduction
Engaged by ideas, debate, the concept of 'story' and social web activism. Have a habit of expressing a strong point of view in most cases — although admittedly not always — well argued and presented. Impatient with the simple-minded and partisan in politics and popular culture, and prefer literary fiction and foreign films. 
Bragging rights
I don't brag . . . It lacks class.
