Mr. Jingles
This is Mr. Jingles. He is the G+ mascot…seriously. Here, he is happy that I viewed all of my notifications and even more happy that today is G+’s 2nd Birthday!

It would seem that the only reason we use so many social networks is because each of them cannot be all things to all people.

100 Jobs in 1 Year

I have this friend. His name is Dave. He is a like minded media professional and is always searching for the next interesting thing to dive into head-first. In 2012, he started this new project, campaign, quest; I am not really sure what to call it. Regardless, it looks like a lot of fun. He will attempt to work 100 jobs in a single year! He already started off strong by becoming an NYC street musician right after the New Year. He has quite a lot of fortitude to take on a challenge like this and I wish him the best. Who knows, you may even see me in one of his jobs. Please check out the website, his videos on YouTube, subscribe on Facebook, follow on Twitter, or just send him some encouraging words via email. He will appreciate every last letter of good will. Enjoy!

Listen up, Facebook Readers!

Readers on Facebook, listen up! I understand that certain notes seem to get cut off. That is because the app I use to copy my blog to Facebook truncates every note. To view the full post, click the name of the note, then click “View Original Post” at the bottom of the note. Then you will be able read every word and examine every picture. I hope this will clear up any confusion going forward. Thanks!
