Thought I would jump into the group with a conversation about Local SEO and branding. I wrote up a story about Reputation.com and in part II of the article detailed some of the 'local review management' processes they implement to game the system. 

I'd love to get some hear some viewpoints on it (anyone care to share a local reputation issue for comparison?)

As an entrepreneur and community leader, I can only echo Avinash in his words about why the United States is so far behind.
Some percent of American's have to go hungry, that is unfortunate. But it is sad, and astonishing, that it is 24%! In the richest country in the world. I expect the US to be closer to Germany, Britain or Canada. We are higher than Indonesia and Jordan!

From the article, http://goo.gl/qUK4S, In fact, the percentage of Americans who say they could not afford the food needed by their families at some point in the last year is three times that in Germany, more than twice that in Italy and Canada.

President Obama should be ashamed of this. So should presidents Bush and Clinton. How is it possible that the we are so shamefully letting down so many in our country? We are richer then the whole planet!

An ounce of prevention goes along way!

Calvin and Hobbes should always be animated, evolved, and shared.
Saw this on Reddit. This guy animated a Calvin and Hobbes comic by using Bill Watterson's art as keyframes. It's lovely.

Working through quotes I like, I decided to apply a little visualization to this simple statement.
