Social Media Top 5: Virality and Death (of Twitter, Newspapers, Likes) http://doughaslam.com/2016/01/30/social-media-top-5-virality-and-death-of-twitter-newspapers-likes/

My Pan-Mass Challenge 2015 fundraising recap: a review of a great year, as I look forward to raising money to beat cancer again in 2016! (to donate: http://bit.ly/pmcdoug- thank you!)
Every August, I put on a ridiculous spandex outfit, a pair of shoes not made for walking, a helmet and gloves and get on my bike to ride from Wellesley to the tip of Cape Cod for the annual Pan-Mass Challenge.
