#TBT: Remember when you took color for granted?

Sadly, if you were born seeing all the colors, you probably don't remember the last time you experienced a brand new color. This might be your reaction.

So, I'm 100 lightyears away from Earth, listening to music from 1915

This is the coolest site. Guess how far out you'd have to be to listen to Wham!'s Careless Whisper for the first time?

#music #space
Radio broadcasts leave Earth at the speed of light. Scroll away from Earth and hear how far the biggest hits of the past have travelled. The farther away you get, the longer the waves take to travel there—and the older the music you’ll hear.

Playing around with:

This is a great resource for people that don't like to hunt around for keynotes, presentations and webinars. The interface is somewhat minimalist right now. I'd like to have more search options, but hey - this is new and not bad right meow.

A little morning music...

Really digging this track from Doe Paoro. Beautiful vocals, light synth, drum machine... perfect for waking up. You know, uh, if waking up at 10:30am is a thing you do. And if it IS a thing you do, I'm super jealous. What are other good songs for the morning?

I am so excited.

I mean... did you see whose suit was hanging up in the Batcave!? This is going to be so great. How do I make interrobangs, by the way?

A Beginner's Guide to Google Analytics Remarketing
#analytics   #remarketing  

"In the context of Paid Acquisition, the power of Remarketing is undeniable. Being able to interact with those who have already experienced your site is a huge advantage to accelerate the growth of your product. However, there is a more powerful method to maximize the potential value of Remarketing.

It is 'Google Analytics (GA) Remarketing'."

The tl;dr version is pretty much this:

If we posit that there are multiple universes in which various probable situations play themselves out, a quantum computer would be able to run calculations within all these different universes at once. Greene, who is chairman of the World Science Festival, explains that the implications of such a machine would be tremendous.

"...the implications of such a machine would be tremendous."

That's definitely an understatement. Hahaha

Today I Learned

"CoolSculpting peddles a dream of painlessly getting a better body, of literally zapping problems away with medical technology. It’s easy to be cynical about Zeltiq, and the entire cosmetic weight loss industry, and we should be. But in this case, the bizarre science works. You can freeze your fat and poop it out."

Have you seen Kung Fury yet?!

If you have 30 minutes, and love ridiculousness, you've got to do yourself a favor and watch this amazing indie film. Tell me how much you love Triceracop in the comments. There have been some pretty amazing fan films on YouTube. What do you think everyone is missing?

Content and Social Marketing Manager at Automatic, St. Louis Cardinals lover, comic book writer, blogger and reader
Well hello, I'm Ryan Crowe <--this is my LinkedIn profile!

I'm the Social and Content Marketing Manager at a great startup in San Francisco, active social media blogger, and I also speak (and am available to speak) about social media at online conferences, and also offline conferences!

You might enjoy following me if you enjoy conversation about social media, the St. Louis Cardinals, or random nerdy things. If you're wondering why so many people have me in their circles it's because I like to help people out using G+, and I started doing it pretty early! People liked the help so much that this stuff happened:

  • Top 5 People to Follow on Google+ by Google+ users.
  • Best Google+ Users to Have Followed in 2011 by G+ users.
  • and added to Google's official Suggested User List (US)

While my public posts are usually about nerdy things like science, baseball, comics, music, or libraries - my activities on the Communities I manage are more representative of my professional interests, here are a select few - check 'em out!

Social Media Professionals (founded) - A nearly 10,000 strong community that has been lauded for its high quality engagement and active moderation team! The Community is dedicated to beneficial social media, and other digital media, conversation for and by professionals (or those who have professional interest in emerging tech for marketing).

Social Media Strategy (moderator) - This 36,000+ member community is the first social media Community on Google+ and the largest. There are more helpful posts than you can shake a stick at (and why would you be shaking sticks all willy nilly anyway?). This is the sister Community to Social Media Professionals.

St. Louis Cardinals (founder) - As you might expect, this Community is dedicated to the Cards. Go Redbirds!

Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy (founder) - I'm a nut for online education - this is just one of the many study group courses in which I participate.

Bragging rights
I'm pretty convincing for a floating black and white head.

Lucky Strike is pretty quality wherever you go. The SF branch has a great location, well done interior, and hosts a number of events and bowling leagues. If you don't like their bar food - you can go next door to McDonald's or the other place and eat at Amici's Pizza.

While the service isn't the fastest, the live music and hip environment makes this place a Western Addition gem. The Ethiopian cuisine is delicious and the friendly wait staff will teach you how to eat this delicious food. The mood is great, the place is clean and it's a cool place to take out-of-towners.

Settled near the end of the fun part of Wash Ave, after the lights - near the City Museum, the London Tea Room is a bit of unexpected fare as far as this part of the city goes. The restaurant is quaint, I suppose - the decor is not exciting - but it's quiet... there is kitsch randomly assorted... small tables. Clean. The food is delicious, though and the tea is wonderful. I usually get an apple and cheddar salad and the veggie sandwich. The grilled cheese (Fancy!) is also worth trying. The portions are small, though - so bring your non-American appetite!
