Twitter DM used to be the best way to contact me. I used it as a defacto messaging service. I agree with Michael Arrington on this one.

I was made aware of your video (and channel) by a friend who posted it on my Facebook wall after I put up a CNN iReport about my aspirations to build a world where the mistakes of men and women carry equaly weight, especially online. I have subscribed and shared this video widely. :-)

A cool Kickstarter campaign for #EarthDay from my friends at +Green Vegetarian Cuisine and +Earth Burger 

Crowdfunding campaigns are some of the most strenous communications challenges out there. My friends, Ellen and Paul are in the midst of one right now on Kickstarter to raies funds for a vegetarian drive-thru restaurant concept called Earth Burger. They have already raised over $33K. With only $6K to go to meet their goal. She took time out to share what she has already learned in the process. Have any of you run a Kickstarter campaign? What tips and lessons can you impart?
Here are five things to help you jump start your Kickstarter planning when you’re the lone communications practitioner.

The amazing +Rae Hoffman will join us at the Social Media Breakfast Houston to have a frank discussion about the things you need to know, and more importantly do, to make sure that your webpage ranks in Google searches. We will talk about what good content is and talk about other signals that search engines are looking for, including usability, social signals and link building. 

Just a few of the things we will discuss:

-Are links still relevant in search?

-Do social media mentions impact search, especially Google+ and Authorship?

-What about guest posting, is that still allowed?

-What is duplicate content and how can you avoid it?

-How will mobile impact search results?

-What are the old habits of SEO that will hurt you the most? What still works?
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Kami Huyse. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Have to miss Bobby Keel. Love this song. I wish someone like +Blake Shelton would pick up this song in Bobby's memory. With a little crafting, it could be a hit.
