Non-profits need to play by the rules too

Last week one of my connections sent me a video that the American Cancer Society made to support their new site, SocietyConnect.org. You can check it out below. But if you’re a fan of the Common Craft videos, especially the Social Networking in Plain English video, you’ll notice some significant similarities. Namely, the script. Despite […]

“Miss Guided” fails.

New series, Miss Guided focused last week’s episode around a blog called “Lindsay Lopez”, a gossip blog focused around the high school in the show. The characters even go so far as to say that the URL is lindsaylopez.net. While watching, I fired up the laptop to see how well done the site is. Thing […]

Indiana Jones IV – Mere weeks away!

OK, so maybe “mere weeks” is a bit overreaching, but still. It’s coming soon. Woo hoo! This movie franchise has been one of my favorites for most of my life, and last Christmas getting the four disc Indy DVD set was one of my favorite presents.

Do YOU believe in Harvey Dent?

I’ve been writing for a while about how disappointed I am in the way most entertainment companies have been handling character blogs. Heroes got pretty close, which was nice, but it still felt lacking. Batman: The Dark Knight has started their viral campaign (which is to say that it’s really cool and people are spreading […]

YouTube platform changes the net (again) for hobbyists

When I was in high school, one of my hobbies was building plastic models. My focus was WWII armor (tanks, jeeps, etc.) and I got marginally good at it. Not great, but good.
