Loren Feldman originally shared:
 
"If you dedicate your existence to being likable, however, and if you adopt whatever cool persona is necessary to make it happen, it suggests that you’ve despaired of being loved for who you really are. And if you succeed in manipulating other people into liking you, it will be hard not to feel, at some level, contempt for those people, because they’ve fallen for your shtick. You may find yourself becoming depressed, or alcoholic, or, if you’re Donald Trump, running for president (and then quitting)."

Google+ just might be the tipping point on the multi-tasking boat if you're trying to manage 3 primary email accounts (it's all in the queue?), 2 Facebook accounts (my places for input, output, and to officially wish everyone a happy freaking birthday), and Twitter stream (oh how I avoided you so for so long like the sticky kid in the hallways.) Don't even get me started on Quora and LinkedIn. I got work to do! ;)

Quora? LinkedIn is easy. Though have managed to still avoid the sticky kid entirely.

Ha! I don't quite have the chatty fanship which would necessitate muting my own ;)

What's the best way to DM a person on here? I'm not much of an attention haggler on threads nor do I hunt down emails... but...

Introduction
Senior UX Design professional with over 15 years of experience in branding, UI, and production for Web and print. Entrepreneurial pursuits take up the rest of her clock cycles. Diana has been known to enjoy haute couture, haute technology, and the occasional haute drink on a cold Bay Area night.

Despite her Transylvanian heritage, Diana does not sleep upside down or in a coffin filled with dirt from an ancient castle.
