Beautiful day for a baseball game in the nation's capital. The nation guardswoman who sang the national anthem appeared choked up at the end. No doubt she understands the magnitude of the holiday we celebrate this weekend. Murica. #natitude #instanats #memorialday

Alternatives to SoundCloud?
What would you use to embed 30-minute audio recordings on a site? I'm considering upgrading to the pro version of SoundCloud, but are there better options that you've tried? Thanks!

Here's why Google is in trouble.

Facebook owns social+pull (discovery, video, events, games)

Google owns business+push (search, calendar, email, drive)

We don't search for news, we get it in our streams now. We don't search as much on mobile, we use apps. Those are two big ad revenue areas Google will miss out on. And video? Now Facebook is going after that.

My 82-year-old mom just joined Facebook. I'll have to keep my snark over here in the Ghost Town. Actually, she was the first teacher in her school to have a classroom computer back in the day. And she reads books on a Kindle now. So you go, girl!

Like Hot or Not except for your Google+ or LinkedIn profile based on how much of a competence vibe you give off.
