Get Connected to Austin Startups


#Austin   #Startups  
If you live in Austin (Or you're coming to visit) and you're wanting to get plugged in to the local startup business scene, there's a few good ways to go about it. For example, I recently stumbled upon a thread on Quora where one member asked the question...If I visit Austin for 3 days, who should I have coffee with to discuss startups and the Austin scene?Great question. Very SMART! The answers are a bit old, but the information is still very va...

What do you think?
Just as the glitterati of social media leaves Austin after South by Southwest Interactive I’ve noticed what I believe is the peak of social media as a succession of fads. I don’t mean to suggest the end of social media is near. Rather, I think –I hope– this “jumping of the shark”* is about reaching a new normal. Other than Meerkat, which basically stole the thunder from all others, hype didn’t seem to make it out of the trade show halls as much a...

First LinkedIn post...Hmmm...I'm beginning to see why people do this.
The problem with most business-centric social media efforts is that they are almost always focused on the Media, as opposed to the Social. Yes, you do need to share content (i.e. Media). This begins the process of “being social” and can help educate, entertain and equip your consumer-base. All too often this is where businesses stay. They are unaware that their human consumer is trying to have a conversation with them. This can be a simple genera...

You on #Ello?
My friends say that Ello is already boring. I'm going to take the Ello 30 Day Challenge and see if I can find meaning here. You with me?

Story

Married May 19, 2011 to Cheryl Slack
Introduction

Joey is a Southern California native Austin transplant, who loves helping people and making a difference.

What he does: Joey is an entrepreneur. He enjoys getting around people who want to make a difference in the community they live. He has a strong affinity for movers and shakers and tends to stay pretty busy. See his current work projects on LinkedIn.

 

He’s a personal branding enthusiast. He thinks there are just as many new ideas and perspectives as there are people on the planet and he wants to hear them all. He’s passionate about what makes us all different and how we can use those differences to come back together, larger than the sum of our parts.

An, “End User Advocate,” experimenting with everything he can get his hands on, Joey wants to have the best experience available and then to become an evangelist who shares it with the world. Often, he finds things that don’t work or could be a little better. When he sees this, he wants to find out who’s responsible so he can offer his services to improve the overall experience. His greatest joy is “plusing the world.” He loves when he finds something that he can’t add value to; it’s very rare.

Also a Philosopher, Idea Man, Polymath and something he calls a, “Why Guy.” A Why Guy is the opposite of a Guru. A Guru has done everything there is, experienced the pinnacle of potential. Joey doesn’t think he’ll ever peak.  He just keeps getting better, because he never stops asking questions. It’s true, he has the curiosity of a 5 year old.

Joey is many more things. Here’s a short list in case you’re interested. Joey is a(n)…
