Sooo cool. #surfing
So when I say "drone," you say ... government secret? Cover-up? Military strike? Even if none of these is the case, the answer "breathtaking views" probably wouldn't make it onto the "Family Feud" survey board. But if you're not already in the know about all the good things drones can do, this spectacular video may change your perspective (no pun intended) on the pilotless planes.

Infographics have been popping up everywhere in wine these days, with a few really topping the innovation list. Sean Seidell & Wine Folly have made some so useful and beautiful that it's worth buying their posters.

Introduction
Ward Kadel@drXeNo is the West Coast Ambassador & Staff Blogger for WineLog.net and Le Wine Buff for Bordeaux.com (CIVB), as featured in their documentary short film.  He was named a “key influencer” and a “strong community manager” in the seminal white paper on wine + tech, VinTank’sWE ARE HERE: The State of Wine Industry Social Media. Raised in Napa, he is a proud Vintage High Crusher and has been around wine virtually all of his life.

He has published the long-running wine blog Vinopanion since May 2007.  Ward has also composed content and media as Influencer for Crushpad and Brixr.com’s TinyBottles, as Community Manager for Northern California Wine on Lunch.com and has consulted for wineries, PR firms and wine organizations for web content and social channel strategy and monitoring.

His freelance articles have appeared in Palate Press and Mutineer Magazine and his content is syndicated on the mobile apps Wine By the Bar and Hello Vino, rated #1 by Mashable on “Apps for Wine Lovers.” Ward is also one of the founders of the “Wine Badge” movement with his WKBadges and is a member of the VinTank Tasting Panel.

In his varied, hectic past and present he has hosted and produced the long running radio show TeK-IndUced EuPHoriA, worked as an assistant for the internationally renown progressive house label Loöq Records and its decade+ long DJ weekly Qoöl, in San Francisco.  Ever the avid investment addict, he was also a featured social investor for Covester.com and interviewed about the biotech business sector by The Wall Street Transcript.

Ward lives in the San Francisco East Bay, very lucky in love with his wife and their sleepy pug, Sebastian Guinness.  When not imbibing and/or tweeting, posting, filming, consulting or writing about wine, Ward can be found researching cancer, DJing at his monthly The Winchester, playing golf…or, just relaxing with friends and family with a tasty bottle of vino.
