Feel strongly about #netneutrality ? It only takes a minute to let your voice be heard... The vote is in two weeks.
The most important FCC vote of our lifetime is about to happen, but Congress is trying to kill net neutrality. Help us change history.

Something fun for your Friday... This Social Networking in Real Life video is simply hilarious! And a great commentary on how so many (too many) people use social networking platforms.

Heeding my own #digitalmarketing  optimization advice, last week we unpublished Denovati's Facebook page and shut down our YouTube channel (to the extent Google would let us). Judicious pruning is key to health and growth.

My assessment of where business schools are - and where they should be - also applies to other professional schools (e.g., education, law, public health, social work, public administration, etc. Coming up this week: a recommended digital transformation plan of action.

January is behind us, as are many people's resolutions. It's not too late to make and keep these though. Break them down into manageable tasks - and remember, all progress is good progress!
Digital resolutions should be an integral part of our annual vow to be better, more successful people. Given how integral digital technology is to managing both our personal and professional lives, one could argue that these resolutions are more important than some of the other improvement goals we set – and that they’re the ones most of us can least afford to break.It’s that time of year again, when we’re all vowing to take better care of our bo...
