How to Freak Out!! And Go Crazy!! Are you being chased by shadows? Is reality being called into question by strange circumstances? Do you regularly fall into CGI-enhanced flashback sequences? If you a...

The path of the web designer is beset on all sides by the iniquities of Lorem Ipsum:
Samuel L Ipsum is an alternative Lorem Ipsum Generator, it uses quotes from films which Samuel L Jackson has starred in place of the standard ipsum text.

Google Adwords, Google Docs.... I have high hopes for the brand accounts!
Pete Cashmore originally shared:
 
Google+ Business/Brand accounts are coming soon!

Here's what people want to see in them:

-Google Analytics integration

-Google Places integration

"Circle groups" - follow a collection of profiles at once (like Twitter lists)

-API

-Bigger hangouts (for chatting with big communities)

What features would you like brand pages to have?

I love the concept of a smart infographic to compare the various open source CMSs. I dislike (strongly) the focus on things like "most tweets" and some of the info seems incomplete or flat out wrong when it comes to J! & Drupal. What do you think?

Interesting infographic comparing Wordpress, Drupal, and Joomla, the three most popular open-source web-based Content Management Systems.

I'm not quite sure where they got information such as the "average setup and customization cost", which seems to be a bit off, but otherwise it looks about right from what I know about these three systems.
Every IT person, developer, and programmer has an opinion when it comes to the various open source content management systems out there. It often comes down to functionality and ease of use, but e...

Of course! Marketing & PR workers are the 2nd most caffeinated profession.
Justin Siefert originally shared:
 
As someone who works in PR and is in the marketing department, I can say we make more trips to the coffee maker than anyone else.
Dunkin’ Donuts and CareerBuilder ranked the top 15 professions that most need coffee. PR is No. 2; writer/editor is No. 4.

So many good ones (thanks PR Daily) but I think this morning I'm relating the most to: “Writing is a hellish task, best snuck up on, whacked on the head, robbed, and left for dead.”

Finally starting to see some of my non-tech friends using G+ .. but not a whole lot. Trying to build some excitement with flat-out lies ;-) Good strategy?
