James, I appreciate your videos. Nice job! Of course my wife is like "why do you keep watching these now that you already own (actually lease) a LEAF?" But I'm sure you understand. It just shows so much promise for the future. And it's a great car .... today!

Anyway, I was wondering what camera and mount you use for the dashboard videos looking back into the interior. I saw that you recently got a new camera, but wondered what you've been using. Seems you have a fisheye lens too. And is it a window mount? We're getting ready to do a 4000 mile road trip(!) in June (no, not in the Leaf) and I want to set something up so we can record some family memories.

Thanks, James. Great job with these!

Haven't heard much about Facebook Post Targeting, but it's important to understand for for social media marketing purposes.

It's true... I haven't been hanging out on Google+.  I haven't been hanging out in hangouts, which have admittedly been pretty interesting.  But the question is: who among my friends irl is here?  If no one else that I'd normally communicate with, then aren't I really just wishing that this was the cool place that people want to be?

Your best episode yet, I think. Leave "trip out" in there just to annoy Pete.

There are so many thinks right about this. Great video of a blind man taking Google's self-driving car for a drive. Happy that they continue to push envelopes and innovate.
 
I think that Google is working on two of the most exciting, disruptive products this century so far, with the Google self-driving car and Google Glass.  I have followed the car's progress, but the power of it really struck me in full force when I saw the image and video below.

Columbia, Missouri has #gonegoogle

Earlier this week, St. Louis, Missouri announced their move to Google Apps for Government. The City of Columbia, Missouri joins St. Louis today with their announcement that all 1,188 of their employees are going Google.

Columbia City Manager Mike Matthes is our guest blogger today. Read how Mike brought Columbia to Google Apps for Government after successfully transitioning the City of Des Moines, Iowa to Google Apps last year.

Whenever people say "If you're going to move to a new country, learn the language!" about immigrants coming here, I understand, but most times I just stay quiet. I WOULD say something, but I don't know the Cherokee word for "irony."

Introduction
Professionally, I'm the Interactive Director at Callis & Associates, a 25 yr old digital firm.  I provide strategy and project management for not only in the social media realm but a company's entire web presence, including web site development, e-commerce implementation, SEO, PPC, etc. I also support the agency's sales and execution of interactive marketing projects.

Prior to that, I was the GM and partner in I-Land Internet Services, a 17,000+ subscriber ISP in Missouri.

Personally, I like to stay on top of technology and spend time with my music (vocal, piano, ragtime, jazz, and more).  I also have a Walt Disney World obsession.  

Family-wise, most of my free time revolves around my wife and girls.  Oh, and I have a great extended family that I've developed through nearly a decade of involvement with the Rotary Youth Exchange (at the personal, club, and district levels).
