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.)

Does an infographic consisting of two circles inherently look like a pair of boobs?

How detailed is your company or organization's internal social media documentation? For example do you document what you will share on each social network, how you will decide what to reply to/mention, how often you plan to update, etc? Would love to hear how others do this.

Interesting use of Trello! That's one of those apps I try periodically but never stick with.

I am emotionally exhausted by the mere anticipation of syncing all my iDevices and de-fucking iTunes Match. If I don't have the juice for iOS syncing, where on earth am I frittering away my emotional energy?

Do you update your LinkedIn status regularly? Do you update it with the same news and links you post to Google+ and/or Twitter? What value do you get from your LinkedIn updates, compared to these other social networks? I'm gathering experiences/perspectives for an upcoming ebook in my "Work Smarter with Social Media" series for Harvard Business Review Press.

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?

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.

I am in the middle of downloading a 240 MB file and couldn't figure out why it was taking so long. +Rob Cottingham  helpfully pointed out that 240 MB is actually quite a big file, and you know, the Internet isn't technically instant. But I always itch a little at these moments when I have to face the limits of my digital/instant gratification mechanisms: it's like peeling back the curtain and remembering that the Internet isn't actually magic.

Story
Tagline
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.
