Is there a way to show a different default view depending on whether a user is accessing from a mobile, tablet or desktop browser?

I can see the benefit of this.  When you view your app in a browser, you have much more room on the screen, same thing with a tablet.  Being able to specify which type of view is default for each device, and even which columns are displayed in what order, would be very helpful.

I could envision using a table view for the mobile, but maybe a gallery for the browser or tablet.  It's much more efficient to display only the essential data on a phone where the display space is limited, where in a browser or tablet you could have a much more pleasing view while still displaying a sufficient amount of data. +Alexandra Samuel  I support you!

I'm looking for the perfect Kitsilano coffee shop for my work-from-home days. Here's what I think constitutes "perfect coffee shop".

Hey Rob, do you think we should snap one of these up for the house? 
Summary: The box takes a minute to set up and promises anonymity for all surfing done through the connected router. It may not prove quite that simple to use in reality, but it’s certainly an intriguing and cost-effective privacy tool.

Yes you should!

Also send them far and wide as presents.

iTunes Match just scared my daughter. OK, technically she was scared by a noise I made, but I never would have groaned like that if I weren't trying to troubleshoot iTunes Match.

Whenever a software developer redirects me from their site to the Apple App Store in order to download their software, I feel like I've just slipped into one of those dystopian novels where the narrator's every move is subject to state approval.

I try so hard not to succumb to that kind of pressure.

I am beginning to think that the only way to make sense of the non-stop email/Twitter/LinkedIn assault from B2B salespeople is to think of them as an Internet-wide computer virus.

Sitting with the family while you watch the torrent comes in is the new sitting around watching the fireplace.

Is this really the best fix available for the recurring #mavericks  glitch that constantly makes the "name" column in Finder too wide? Better ideas?
Does your Finder window randomly open with the name column extremely wide? Read this post to get my fix for this really annoying OSX bug.

At long last, finally got the push I needed to commit to Google+: Facebook has locked me out, and some of my thoughts are longer than 140 characters.

+Scott Nelson Very interesting you got to witness the opening day of the court case. Though they are different beasts with different purposes, there are some similarities. I am curious why you think Google+ does or will side step the skullduggery of Facebook?

Won't it be great when we have tiny robots that live on our desks and plug in all our cables for us each morning?

Yes! (I also want one that will nag my kids for me so I don't have to listen to myself doing so.)

VP Social Media at Vision Critical & social media blogger for Harvard Business Review
Introduction

I'm the VP of Social Media for Vision Criticala research technology provider that works with more than 600 organizations worldwide, include a third of the top 100 brands.

I write about how social media is transforming our politics, our work and our personal lives. The best way to get to know me is through my blog at alexandrasamuel.com, on the Harvard Business Review site or on Twitter as awsamuel. The Lavin Agency represents me for speaking engagements.

My writing on technology issues has appeared in media outlets like the Toronto Star,CBC RadioBusiness 2.0, and the Chronicle of Higher Education

My writing on social media is informed by my experience as a web strategist and by my research background. As the co-founder of Social Signal, one of the world’s first social media agencies, I shaped the online strategy for a wide range of online community projects, including TyzeChange Everything and NetSquared.  

I hold a B.A. from Oberlin College and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Harvard University. I live in Vancouver, Canada with my husband and Social Signal partner, Rob Cottingham, and our two kids.
