A must-read post from +Tripp Braden for anyone even thinking of marketing to #Boomers  in #leadership  roles http://www.trippbraden.com/2015/04/14/connect-with-baby-boomer/
If you’re the average baby boomer today, you are exposed to over 20,000 messages every day. How do you connect and engage to the person you're writing to?

Recording an episode this afternoon, with my ATR2100 mic as part of the setup, I noticed that the LED light on the mic did not come on, but the recording seemed to go ok. Is there something for me to worry about? Something that can be done to fix this. Recording seems fine and I don't recall that light not going on previously.

Blog post as self-administered therapy when kicking myself for missing an important appointment. Seems to have worked! 
OMG, I missed that appointment! Have you ever missed an important business appointment? I missed one this morning and was both embarrassed and annoyed with myself for doing so. Ironically, although I had the appointment date and time correctly listed in my Google calendar, I’d been using a separate backup/reminder system and that had a …

The perennial question, "should CEOs blog?". Three examples in this post of very good CEO blogs, one of which has been maintained for over 10 years.

So in the wake of the latest announcements of #Google+ reorganization, what are the Google+ pundits (as distinct from the G+ haters and scoffers) saying about the future usefulness or otherwise of the platform? Should we just all leave now, last one to turn out the lights, or is there still hope?
