Sitting is the New Cancer: Sound Advice or Crass Marketing? 
Possibly the strangest and some would say offensive sound bite that you are likely to hear this year surfaced when Apple CEO Tim Cook recently declared that “Sitting is the new cancer” to market the new $349 dollar smart watch that will prompt users to move every hour.Although the intended message raises a valid point about personal activity and a sedentary lifestyle being a major cause of concern throughout the world, many have questioned the us...

CES 2015 Technology Show Hits Las Vegas
2015 has started with an unintentional digital detox of sorts for me after the vibration of an incoming text message caused my Sony Xperia Z3 phone to slip off a low shelf and fall 12 inches onto the floor. Despite the incredibly short distance, I turned the phone over to see a cracked display ...

What happened when I went 5 days without a phone #linkedinpulse

For example I am often asked how I find enough time to write blog post on LinkedIn with so many other responsibilities to juggle. I have no secret ingredient, magic spells ...

Site Manager - This Is My Joystick ★Application Specialist at the NEC ★Social Media ★Social Networking ★Innovation★Klout★BzzAgent
Introduction
I am fascinated by the word of mouth revolution of Social Networking and the power of online engagement and influence.

BzzAgent seem to be leading the way in social media marketing, brand advocacy, word of mouth marketing (WOM) and most importantly the much-maligned social media ROI.

Our world is changing rapidly and companies who ignore the power of online customer influence could end up regretting their short sighted strategy and business models from the past. 

The future is quite exciting but I cannot help but wonder how long it will be until we are all judged by our Klout scores?
