Job Seekers Use Social Media To Stand Out.

Porn and Pancakes. The Gap Between Personal and Business Innovations.







Yes. The sign you see in that picture says, “Porn and Pancakes."



That picture was taken at my church, Southbrook, in Dayton. They are advertising a breakfast where they’ll be discussing the dangers of porn addiction.

Signs That You Definately Need A Social Media Mentor

While I’m the proud mentor of many Social Media newbies, technology and trends move so fast that I also maintain my own collection of Social Media mentors. From my 16 year old mentor Cameron who I often bug with questions like “Is this cool?” or “How do you do this on a Mac," to online mentors I’ve never met like Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, who wrote this great read on “How… Continue

Ironically, something about flying grounds me.

Just reclined the chair in seat 5A and powered up the laptop. I hate airports and miss the days when I was able to travel on “the company plane.” But, I love flying. Like, a lot. It’s weird.



Ironically, something about flying grounds me.



Here are a few things I love about my airplane safe haven.



Productivity:



No internet. No phone. Just me, my thoughts, earphones and laptop. With Web 2.0 comes a lot of noise and distraction. It’s nice to take… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
