We'll hear a lot about the Millennials in the coming decades, but here's a first look at the generation that will stand in their shadow.
Many of the regular readers know all about Generation Y, but may wonder about the following generation: Generation Z. The next fifteen year generation completed its final year of birth (2011), and wil...

My son is in this generation. I sure hope his future is not bleak.

This piece is worth bookmarking and referring back to periodically. I think Cerf is spot on. Technology is just a set of tools to make us better humans. It will evolve, but the basic human needs it serves will remain fairly constant.

Spending some time today looking through the accepted interactive panels that will take place at +SXSW this March. Whoa. Amazing list of topics being discussed!

As someone who once lost a lot of weight using WW, I found this article fascinating.

A hunch that the science underlying his company's venerable weight-loss formula led CEO David Kirchhoff to make big changes—and ask a million members to alter their diet.

Slowly Google+ creeps up on Facebook. Sometimes it's good to be second.

Sitting in a SXSW session with Vic Gundotra from Google+. Seemed like it might be a good time to post here again.

This is one of those articles you read and think, "Yeah, I guess I do kind of learn like that." Good stuff.
Taking notes during class? Topic-focused study? A consistent learning environment? All are exactly opposite of the best strategies for learn...

Since the launch of Google+, Google has been putting a lot of muscle behind promoting and integrating the service into its core products. Fire up a new Android 4.0 device, and you'll be prompted to cr...

Facebook Like ads are highly effective...which makes them natural bait from privacy lawsuits. It will be interesting to watch how this plays out.

Story
Introduction
Suggested Circles You Could Add Me To:
  • Social Media
  • Public Media
  • Technology
  • Future Trends
  • Strategic Foresight
Always watching the skies (or the interwebs) for the next hint at where we're going as a society. Much of my career was spent working for PBS stations focusing on content curation, creation and marketing. And I am currently drawing on that background to work in social media strategy around Washington DC.

Quick bio...was raised and went to college in Bloomington, IN. It's a good place to be from. Since then I've been on a bit of a wander. Lived in the megalopolis that is the American 'East Coast,' for over 10 years, and then spent a few years in New Mexico working while getting an MBA. Now I'm back east, and have been for a couple of years.

Stuff I like: dogs, music, cycling, convertibles, photography, travel (pretty much being on the move),  and having lots of information at my fingertips. And I also like reading new and interesting things that get me thinking. If that sounds like the person you were Googling? Well, then, "hi."

Oh, and by way of standard social media disclaimer, I should mention that the views expressed on Google+ (or via other Google tools) are my own and don't represent those of my current employer.
