So, it’s been a year and what have you done?

April 1, 2011

Have not updated this blog site for one thing. I’ll endeavor to be better about this from now on.

So, last post was about books…I just finished “Socialnomics: How Social Media Transforms the Way We Live and Do Business” (Erik Qualman) this week. He had some intersting ideas and insights about social media but in the future I hope he gets a better editor. Some passages were clunky, a few sentences made no sense and “fizzle” is not a positive thing as in the section header “Turning lemons into lemonade with fizzle” – I believe he was going for something along the lines of the old advertising saw of “You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle”

Dear Erik, fizzle is what a firecracker fuse does right before it becomes a dud (it fizzles out) where something that has fizz, is effervescent and bubbly. Semantics, like spelling, does count.

Anyway, the next books will be Project Management related for class and Anthony Bourdain’s latest “Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook”
