How having one successful company spawns others.
After years learning about business working for the domain registrar, three former GoDaddy staffers are ready to emerge from stealth mode with Sourcely, a startup focused on the growing used mobile device market.

(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.

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!).

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.
