“I am a dreamer but i’m not the only one.” - The word “dream” gets thrown around a lot and means different things to different people. I agree with Don’s definition. 
With the launch of our new website, we unveiled a concept that we’ve been playing with for some: Dream Acceleration. We say that “COCO is a dream accelerator — a destination for building your venture and exploring new ideas in the company of other creators.” All this stems from our mission: Inspire and enable people to live … Read more

The first of many: Lately I've found myself having similar conversations with friends and colleagues about lifestyle design and maximizing output at work.

It's a bit embarrassing to admit, but it just dawned on me that sharing these resources and synthesizing the lessons I’ve learned and will learn is an excuse to write more. I’m not sure why it took me this long to arrive at this realization.

All that being said, here are a few products, tools and books I've been obsessed with lately.

It was so great to see so many of our members, alumni, friends, guests and new neighbors mingling and getting to know each other. We truly do have a special community here in the Twin Cities.
After such a fun evening I think we can officially call Northeast home. As always the conversations were inspiring, and the food was amazing thanks to our friends at Chowgirls. It was great to see so many of our members, alumni, friends, guests and new neighbors mingling and getting to know each other. We truly … Read more

Story
Tagline
Father. Husband. Data driven / empathy inspired: Your network is your net worth, invest in and curate it accordingly.
Introduction
I'm a digital strategist. I'm also a fan of human-centered designmusicphotojournalism and social technology

I do it for a living.

My Personal Why:
I believe each individual is capable of the amazing. I also believe each individual has the potential to be the catalyst by which others unlock their full potential.  

...

Below is a break down of my social web ecosystem: The social networks I use daily to organize & archive my experiences.

Google+
I don’t view google+ as a social network, I view it as my unique identifier the web over. The central hub I use to openly organize my thoughts and digital activity as it relates to both life & business.

...

Facebook:
My Timeline on the other hand is a window into my personal life. Which is why it’s the only place I can be found on the web with a different profile picture.

I use it to archive and organize the interests, social connections, memories and experiences that shape my perspectives.

...

Linkedin:
Linkedin is pretty much my living resume, an archive of my professional experience. It’s also where I map and maintain my professional graph as well as stay on top of industry trends.
...

Twitter:
I rarely use twitter to actively communicate. In my case tweets replicate the functionality of the status update, both on google+ and on Facebook. I do however use it to publicly archive my process. I also use it to share content I find interesting during research. More importantly I use it to listen, actively consuming content from a carefully curated list of twitter accounts I follow using Flipboard.

...

Instagram:
In 2010 I committed to taking a photo a day: Project 365.

Since then I’ve renewed my love for photography and find instagram perfect for capturing random observations & practicing photo composition.Your best camera is the one you have with you.
...

Foursquare:
For me Foursquare is less about the broadcasting of my location, instead I view it as an archive of the places I’ve been. Again, framed in the context of passively documenting my experiences for future reference.

...

— In life and in business the journey is the destination.

Pretty low key environment. Great for reading and catching up on emails. The food is pretty good, but not the greatest, however the baristas are friendly and the coffee is great. Not a bad way to kill a Sunday afternoon.

It's your typical coffee shop, friendly baristas, low-key atmosphere. Great for getting some work down.
