Chapter 1

The beeping monitor on my wrist felt like needles in my ears. Spammy piece of drek. 

Pedaling hard around the corner, I had to dodge the people walking home from their shifts, the afternoon sun glowing off the white, curving walls of the huge dome buildings lining the sidewalks. Shouts followed behind me, telling me to slow down, warning me of the knockout. As if I needed warnings. I'd worn the Personal Assistant on my wrist since leaving the Nursery at age four; I knew about the knockout. 

Everybody did. It hadn’t cured the Bug, but it protected us, saving humanity from extinction.

I studied the path ahead through the spaces between the people; I was still a hundred meters from the Enjineering Dome. I forced myself to breathe slower and deeper. I glanced at the beeping Personal Assistant, which everyone called the Papa, on my wrist, ignoring the three flashing digits telling me my heart rate. The time readout was small, but I was used to focusing on it. 14:28. 

I wished I'd had time to deactivate the bugging speed suppressor in the cycle; I had two minutes to get to my position in Development 4. But if an Admin or Enforser caught me tampering with the cycle, I'd not only be in for a longer shift in the Enjineering Dome, but I'd also get a shift in the Dumps. Working with Rojer was nothing but tek paradise, but scrubbing kilometers of smelly conveyor belt sucked bug, and Enforsers could tell when you were going faster than your cycle was designed to. 

You had to be careful and lucky if you wanted to have fun in New Frisko.

Wow! Nice data +Ana Hoffman. Thanks for sharing!
 
YouTube, Google+, & LinkedIn drive most engaged traffic, Reddit & SU the least

Six months of sharing by 250 million people says that YouTube drives some of the most valuable web traffic of any social site, according to a study published by social sharing and analytics company +Shareaholic  this morning http://tgcafe.it/social-media-clicks.

_Here's the Skinny:

1.   YouTube is the undisputed champion. YT drives the most engaged traffic.

2.    Although Google+ and LinkedIn drive the fewest social referrals, they bring in some of the best visitors.

Go, Google Plusser!

3.   A referral from Twitter is as good as a referral from Facebook — at least, in terms of bounce rate, pages per visit and time on site. 

4.   Pinterest isn’t exactly the social media golden child we all play it up to be.

5.   Reddit users are the most fickle.

6.   StumbleUpon drives the least engaged referrals.

What's your take on it? How engaged are your visitors from your favorite social networks?

DANG +Jeff Goins! I felt like I was listening to +Tim Grahl or Brene' Brown. I deeply appreciate the vulnerability and the "it's okay that I'm not what I think everybody wants me to be."

I had an "oh yeah" moment as I listened to you speak about getting up in the morning and writing for 2 hours. I was remembering the time when I wrote often and how connected I felt with myself & how much insight I had into the lives of people around me. It was a profound time.

I was also reminded of how much fun I like to have with anything I do. Great talk! Thank you for sharing.

Gratefully,

Ryan

I went to Tru-Line with a bad muffler problem. I had backed into a curb and messed it up pretty bad. I was afraid it would cost me lots of money. Bill had his guys look at it, they determined that it would need to go to another shop. They called the shop, had me in and out the same day and even had someone take me over to drop me off and pick me up. These guys are top notch!

Sarkis was very prompt to return my calls from day 1. He's bent over backwards to make sure I get the car insurance that fits me best, at a rockin' price. He even helped me after I was no longer a client and moved away. He got me up to date with what I need to do to improve my driving record and sent me some needed documents. Highly recommend!

I started yoga with Amber from Kickstand Fitness and I've had some super cool results. I was having lower back pain and within a couple weeks it went away. Amber's worked with me personally to increase my awareness of my body and because of that I'm more able to recognize when I need to move around so the back pain doesn't return. She's a great teacher and very supportive. I've done Skype yoga with her when one of us was out of town or when we didn't have time to meet up. That's very cool! It makes doing yoga with her more flexible (no pun intended), able to meet my sometimes hectic schedule. I've been working with her now for over 5 months and I love it!!! Highly suggest giving her a call. :)

Went last night to see Man With the Pointed Toes. They did a great job! Fun and comfortable. Small theatre-in-the-round where every seat close to the action. They said they've been in business 65 years. Audience was also older. Seats weren't filled, surprising. Perhaps they don't do lots of advertising? Had a great time!
