Sweet new batting cage at the Google office. Corporate softball must be getting serious.

Cameron Crowe's much-loved film turns 25 this week, and unlike a lot of high-school films of its day, it's aged surprisingly well.

Introduction
My name is Drew Olanoff, I work at Yahoo!

I coined the phrase "Social Good" for online charitable movements, and invented the online "donation by action" charity model. I founded #BlameDrewsCancer

I pride myself on being a connector. Connecting people, stories, information. I have worked under some amazingly talented and gifted PR pros while working for startups as a "Director of Community", "Community Manager" and "Technology Evangelist". I have the knack of working stories both mainstream as well as online. Bridging that gap is my passion.

My life motto is "failure is not an option".

The folks at Dana's Flower Basket were extremely helpful and came up with a beautiful arrangement on the spot that was very much not something that you'd find online. Definitely going back to them.
