A fresh article from my friend and digital guru, +Wallace Ryland -- worth a good read if you're in the digital content business! Buddy Ryland is the man with the answers in this field, or so he tells me constantly...lol

I don't know everything--in fact, I'd love to hear back on what you think I get right and what you think I get wrong :-)

Hey +Rich Campbell Look who is at the top of the Adult Contemporary music sales list on Amazon.com! Way to go "America" with the new album and the greatest hits collection. Good news on a week that included such sad news as Dan Peek's passing...

Mohandas Ghandi said "Action expresses priorities." Words are meaningless, behavior reveals truth. If you say you value something, you make it a priority and your actions show that.

This may be one of the coolest networking ideas I've seen yet....creating a collaborative list of photographers on Google+ using a shared Google Docs spreadsheet....brilliant....and so simple. It's a new world out there.

The Google+ Photographer's List

Sign up at: https://spreadsheets0.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGE2cmEyRlI3YllRdXlTRTUyRDd1b3c6MQ

See the list at: https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aib5TdAOOX-UdGE2cmEyRlI3YllRdXlTRTUyRDd1b3c&hl=en_US#gid=0

I'd like to thank +David Snuckel for creating this Google Doc spreadsheet as a clever evolution to this process.
List Background: Well the old list turned into a problem... I started it and it hit 1500 ppl spread over 3 threads, so then I asked for suggestions on who wanted to take this albatross over. I got tons of great responses, and, during that, +David Snuckel started that thing above.

Why the List? It provides a good list of people to check out to consider following... no one expects you to follow everyone or put them all in a circle, but it's a great resource to explore, and perhaps you'll find someone you kinda dig!

The original 1500 are below! :)

Story
Tagline
Creative Genius at Bluestone Thompson Multimedia. Communications guy at FUMA.
Introduction
Dan Thompson is an expert in web development, social media marketing, video and film production, podcasting, online and email marketing, traditional advertising (print, radio, television), and public relations. 

Or so HE says...

In any event, Dan has worked more than twenty years in the marketing, film production, and public relations business. 

He is right-handed, enjoys reading, smiles and laughs a lot, and thoroughly loves describing himself in social media using the third person omniscient point of view.

Since 2004, Dan has served as the Director of Communications for Fork Union Military Academy, a premier boys boarding school. For FUMA, Dan has created and managed the school's Web site (forkunion.com); written, edited, and published the award-winning alumni magazine Call To Quarters; served as the Academy's principal photographer; and designed and managed the school's marketing and advertising programs.

Dan also enjoyed his role as the producer of the long-running sports radio shows "Shuman Says" and "In The Paint" on the Academy Radio Network, carried by more than a dozen radio affiliates throughout Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. He was also the original producer of "The Passing Game" -- an hour-long show with basketball legend Coach Fletcher Arritt, and co-host Brooks Berry. Although Dan has stepped away from day-to-day producing duties and now just delegates all the hard work to others, the show continues to air weekly on several radio affiliates in central Virginia and the Tidewater area and past shows are archived at http://www.thepassinggame.com.

While head of Product Development & Marketing with Edge Training Systems, Inc. (the company he co-founded in 1995 and left in 2001) Dan Thompson built a strong reputation in the corporate training industry for writing and directing cutting-edge films of high quality and effectiveness. His best-selling videos produced for Edge include With All Due RespectOn The Edge: Preventing Violence in the Workplace, and Different Like You - all used in employee training by a significant number of Fortune 500 companies. He also designed and built web-based assessment applications and 360-degree survey systems used by clients ranging from Kraft Foods to Amazon.com.

Believe it or not, Dan actually began his work career as the only criminal investigator in a rural Virginia sheriff's office. Following his seven-year career in law enforcement, Dan moved into the corporate film and marketing field full time and left the chasing of criminals to others.
