Are you a social media slave?

Miley Cyrus left Twitter because she felt like a social media slave and I certainly felt like one last week as my to do list kept bugging me that I haven't blogged in a while.



No one ever said it was easy to do this social media thing, but I think it's especially challenging for businesses. I try to blog once a week. If I have ideas during the week, I just pop them into a folder and then when "blogging… Continue

On a good day you might even hear me tell some stories about DARPAnet. I've played with mainframes, minicomputers and PC’s starting with DOS 1.0.



I’d giggle inside my head when visiting friends and I saw… Continue
