In case you missed it... here's the recording of our #UltimateShowroom Hangout with +Best Buy! Now if someone will please fill a panini press with bacon and give it to me for Christmas I'll be very happy.
 
Thank you everyone for hanging out us last night for the #UltimateShowroom shoppable hangout! If you didn't get a chance to join in or want to see it again, we have it recorded here for you.

Hey everyone! I'm hosting +Best Buy's #UltimateShowroom  Hangout on Tuesday. Join in as I lead a discussion with people who are much funnier than I am.
 
Of course you haven’t completed all of your holiday shopping!  That's a given.  But what’s the latest and greatest in techie and electronic gifts? How do you get them and what are our best deals?

Come hang out with a group of passionate, tuned-in (and self-admitted techno-nerd) consumer electronics enthusiasts as they check out the coolest gifts for the holidays.

Join +Caroline McCarthy   -- author, speaker, former CNETer, former CBSer, and former Googler (‘course) as she leads a Hangout focused on plugged-in fun.  Riffing with her are +Austin Evans  (tech reviewer extraordinaire), +Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), +Machinima, +Mark Watson (Soldier Knows Best), Dan Duvalian (Best Buy Blue Shirt guy), and…..+you!  Join the party by asking questions at #UltimateShowroom – and find great gift insight and in-the-know info.

See you Tuesday, December 17that 8 PM EST / 7 PM CST!

Not only did I actually like "The Internship," I think it did a pretty good job of picking up on subtle Google cultural quirks.

I'm writing again! In the wake of the "Princeton Mom" controversy, I had this published on Date Report (most of what I write is on +Quartz, but this didn't have a ton to do with global business news...)

Introduction
I'm a freelance writer and branded content consultant, working with awesome clients in the tech industry to help them tell their stories to the world.

Previously I worked at Google on the business marketing team for Google+, and on the Trends and Insights team, which publishes Think Quarterly.

Before that I spent five years at CNET/CBS as a journalist covering digital innovation, social media, and various other antics around Silicon Valley. I had a side hobby as a TV commentator so you might've seen me on Countdown with Keith Olbermann or the Today Show.

I live in Brooklyn, but not the trendy part. I read a lot and I travel a lot, but I still lug around giant books on planes instead of an e-reader because I don't think I need to stare at any more screens than I already do.
Bragging rights
Climbed Kilimanjaro. Made it through one marathon and hope to run the second soon. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I was once in an ad campaign for Tanqueray gin.
