I'm doubtful that I'll be close enough to the Google Fiber boundaries to make the cut, but man I'm praying to the Google gods.
 
We're so excited to bring Google Fiber to Austin in 2014. Share this graphic and let your friends and family know you that you'll be one of the first to sign up for Fiber.

You can sign up for updates about Fiber in Austin here: https://google.com/fiber/austin/

I'm not sure how the Google+ "Suggestions" algorithm works, but it gets a big fat MINUS in my book. It probably is right less than 1% of the time.

Google+ tip:
Remove several Suggested Contacts at once by clicking & dragging to select.

Big (good!) changes coming to Google+ :
Jul. 11, 2011 - It's been a couple of weeks since Google+ launched, and with the exception of China already blocking its use, people do seem to like it. That's good news

So far, G+ is a toy. But it's very early.

I'm trying to imagine my wife, friends and family taking the time to learn a new platform. Facebook changed their behavior a few years ago. Does Google have the power to shift everyone from FB? We'll only know after they fully open the floodgates.

After the first week, I have my doubts. But then again, I never thought my 78 year old dad would ever be on Facebook.

Or - is it a bigger threat to Twitter as gigaOM asks? http://bit.ly/rua6Dp

Or maybe Tumblr should be most afraid, as one commenter noted.

I haven't had time to properly explore - - but am loving how tied it is with my gmail. Feels more "natural" to my digital life as opposed to making facebook into default email standard.

Which platform gets the most engagement?

+Guy Kawasaki spoke last night in my 'hood of Costa Mesa.
In a live demo, he did the exact same photo post on Twitter, Facebook, and G+.

G+ got WAY more responses in real time than the other platforms, even though there were only 10k followers on G+ (compared to 400k on Twitter, 60k on FB).

One person asked, "do you think that's because Google Plus is so new and people are playing with it more right now?"

Guy's response: "I DON'T CARE! I just want to WIN!"

That was so surprising, especially since there isn't a mobile app for iPhones yet.

Story
Tagline
Digital marketing entrepreneur and family guy living in Austin while dreaming of Montana.
Introduction

As a marketer, I figured out how to build my first 17-page website in Notepad in 1995. Ever since that moment of enlightenment when I got my own hypertext link to work for the first time, I have thrived on discovering how we as marketers can make [what we now call] digital strategies advance successful businesses.

From software in the cloud to online advertising to web analytics to search to social media to mobile and beyond, I've established my career around being the guy who recommends practical digital solutions (as opposed to bright and shiny ones).

I've always either been an entrepreneur or in roles that were entrepreneurial by nature.

My home is in Austin, the bulk of my career was in Los Angeles metro (Orange County), my soul is still in my home state of Montana.
