AOL will take over Microsoft ad sales for display, mobile, & video in US; Bing to replace Google on AOL for search

Under the AOL pact, Microsoft’s Bing search engine will power search results and advertising on AOL’s properties for 10 years. Bing is displacing Google Inc., which had long provided search technology for AOL.  
AOL and Microsoft struck a partnership that will result in AOL taking over ad sales responsibilities for display, mobile and video ads for all Microsoft properties in the U.S. and eight other markets.

I Went Paleo and Now I Hate Everything

Please put aside whatever religious sentiments you have about the Paleo Diet, and read this because it is simply the funniest thing I've read in months.

Recently, I went pseudo Paleo.

I say pseudo, because, like most things in my life, I’ve jumped in headfirst without putting any thought or research into it (this is also how I ended up taking a workout class called “Insanity.” Afterwards, I was drooling and delirious. So I guess it delivered).

It just happens to be by Geraldine, the wife of +Rand Fishkin, and I don't even know why I mentioned that because she'd be just as good a writer if she were actually sleeping with "the guy from the farmers market" instead of Rand (read the piece!).

(Please repost widely!)

Just a week to go before we launch "MediaLIT: Overcoming Information Overload," our free online course that asks folks to be active users, not passive consumers, of news and information.

It's not a huge time commitment, but we've packed a lot into this, including guest videos with folks such as Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales, Margaret Sullivan (NY Times public editor), Brian Stelter (CNN), Len Downie (former executive editor of the Washington Post), Renee Hobbs (Media Literacy Project), Joi Ito (MIT Media Lab), Lawrence Krauss (physicist), Latoya Peterson (activist and editor at Fusion), Baratunde Thurston (author, comedian, etc.), Amanda Palmer (musician and author) and many others.

The course is a project of ASU Online and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication (where I teach part-time), and is running on the edX platform, the MOOC initiative started by Harvard and MIT.

Join us!
Take control of information overload and make media serve you better.

That is a big change.
 
Wow, that's a big jump -> Twitter Will Increase DM Character Limit From 140 To 10,000 via +Martin Beck 
Brands that use Twitter for customer service should benefit from the extra room for private messages, which is coming in July.

Congratulations Kara Swisher​ and Walt Mossberg​. You built something of value. I love Recode. Vox is acquiring Recode. This makes perfect sense to me, unlike some of the other mergers I've seen talked about lately. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/27/business/media/vox-media-acquiring-recode.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0

Got this press release this morning. Hard to believe it will be the same GigaOm. Gigaom.com Acquired by Knowingly Corp Knowingly Corp, an Austin-based Internet startup, announced today that it has acquired a portion of the assets of Gigaom. These assets include the website, gigaom.com, as well as the content library. At the helm of Knowingly Corp is tech entrepreneur and author Byron Reese, who describes Gigaom as, “second to none in what it does.” He adds, “We are excited to be a chapter of the Gigaom story and look forward to continuing its mission of ‘humanizing the impact of technology.’” “We live at what I believe is the great turning point of all of human history, and that is being driven in large part by the technologies we are creating. This new world we are making will not just be more prosperous, but it will be more fair and more just than any time in the past,” says Reese, echoing the theme of his book, Infinite Progress: How the Internet and technology will end ignorance, disease, poverty, hunger and war. He adds, “Gigaom will continue documenting this transformation and the technologies which are driving it.” Knowingly plans to relaunch the site on August 15, 2015. Until that date, visitors will find only minimal changes to the site and no new content. Founded in 2006 by Om Malik, GigaOm began as a technology blog and soon grew to become one of the industry’s most respected sources for tech-related news, events and research. Founded in 2014 by Reese, Knowingly offers a number of websites and services, including iforetold.com, where people can log predictions about the future, and Correctica, a tool which catches errors in documents and websites that spell checkers miss.

It's 7:11 AM and already over 100 people have posted to my timeline wishing me a Happy Birthday. On days like this I remember how truly lucky I am that the internet happened during my lifetime and I have the opportunity to know all of you and to enjoy your friendship and support. We may bitch over the small stuff, but look how wonderful our world is with all the opportunity to connect. And special thanks to Mark Zuckerberg for bringing us all together when he was just a puppy, Today is his birthday, too.( Randi​ please tell him how much I appreciate what he has done.)

Story
Tagline
I'm a kickass coach for early stage businesses who also need a good evangelist.
Introduction
I'm an extrovert for whom social media was made. Three time entrepreneur, angel investor, and mentor to over 600 businesses. Now coaching and mentoring all over the world.

I've also been an English Professor, an author, a mother, a foster mom, a yoga practitioner, a world traveler, and a catalyst for business growth.

Oh, and I built a geodesic dome home in the 70's. That probably says it all.
Bragging rights
I raised three foster kids to be taxpayers

This salon is very different from your average salon. It's a quiet, intelligent place where the customer is taken seriously, and gossip is at a minimum. Both David and Frank are true professionals with many years of experience and a willingness to learn new things. They are also fun to talk to. They're good listeners to what you want, and really try to give it to you and/or make constructive and honest suggestions. And this place is CLEAN.
