I'm not at all concerned about him driving while wearing Glass. 
 
This is indeed the best (and funniest) reaction to Google Glass yet.  If you think +Ron Richards needs his own pair, re-share and let +Project Glass know. He gets my vote.

Just introduced the big kid to the Sifteo Cubes. He picked up on them immediately and is playing a tricky alphabet/reading game with no intervention from me. (You do remember the Sifteo Cubes I started talking about before I left for Argentina, right?)
Tilt, flip, shake, and neighbor! Get your brain and hands moving with the award-winning Sifteo Cubes.

My new favorite hotel in the world, just because of their landing page. Skeep intro. Work that into your conversations tomorrow.

Did you hear that? It was a collective motherly shriek, rising up into the universe via social media networks, as a direct result of the fact that it looks like bedtime (it's dark), it sounds (whiningly) like bedtime, and yet it's only early evening.

This is oversimplified--if it were as easy as finding "brand ambassadors", every brand would be doing it (and I know we have been looking for straightforward ways to target those women for well over a decade now). I think the conclusion isn't that we need to find brand ambassadors, but that we need to use social media to reach women. That may seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised at the number of big brands who still do not have a dedicated social media team in-house (or leave it all in the hands of a PR firm).

He spends his time in derivatives meetings in which not one minute is spent discussing how they can help clients? So where is his integrity? Why isn't he spending a minute in those meetings discussing the clients' needs? I have a feeling it's a lot easier to kvetch about integrity and culture when you've already banked tens or hundreds of millions of dollars on your clients' backs.

Sorry, Mr. Smith. I'm not buying it. Goldman has issues--that much is clear just by reading the news--but this is a shameless ploy to float your resume to an enormous audience. (Really? Your Rhodes Scholarship was germane to this conversation?) I hope the truly good executives who might hire you, the ones with real integrity, see through this and you're blackballed, both for your lack of integrity and your lack of loyalty. I like a whistleblower as much as the next person, but this isn't whistle blowing. This is horn tooting of the ugliest kind.

Pinterest drives more referral traffic than G+, YouTube, and LinkedIn combined.

Still growing....
Pinterest now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January.

Ahhh...yes! Oh, yes! I completely agree. It's going to be interesting to see what rising stars come from Pinterest.

The Sifteo Cubes have arrived. Expect me to talk about these non-stop for the next month. Sifteo is my new Pinterest. I'm pretty sure my husband okayed the purchase just to shut me up. Silly, silly man.

I am a geek. We've established that with my raving posts about Pinterest, right? I love technology. I particularly love consumer tech. (No offense to all of my ex-clients who make things most people can barely pronounce.) What I really love is consumer tech that is bigger than it appears. Like Pinterest, which just look like a cool place for us to pin neat stuff, but is really a platform for far more interesting things lurking beneath the surface and has already begun to change ideas about how we interact with design and the web. Now meet Sifteo. You know those teeny, tiny Post-It pads? Sifteo Cubes are computers about that size.

More soon, but remember this: First games. Later, the world.*

*Yes, that is tongue-in-cheek. Sifteo isn't going to take over cloud computing or run government databases. Yet. (See that? More hyperbole.) But the introduction of the form factor will make consumer computing more interesting. Just watch.
