Presidential campaigns and the Internet

In case you haven’t seen it yet, a great stop for tracking what the presidential candidates are doing online (on both sides of the political spectrum) is TechPresident. Joshua Levy has a Daily Digest of the day’s activities or news of interest. For today, for example, he writes about TechPresident blogger David All and his…

Spider-Man’s Promo on Google Earth

Here is another innovative way to promote a product. Very creative to say the least, and considering its “geek” factor, probably very well targeted. In keeping with the vastness of the “Spider-Man 3” franchise, Sony worked with Google Earth to bring the superhero’s Manhattan world to fans around the globe with a “Spider-Man 3” layer…

Politics, politics, politics…

I’m sitting here debating whether I should join the fray on the GOP Presidential debate. I’m a “people” and “issues” sort of person, and its hard to focus on that in DC’s political driven environment. So, in that spirit, and because we all know that ideas matter, and we know that politicians make policy decisions…

Blog Post Topics Ideas…

Blogging transforming DC neighborhood

This is a fascinating story, and just the sort of story that brings together my passions — group dynamics, communication and technology. Sam Diaz wrote an article about the DC neighborhood that is being transformed through the use of blogs to bring together its residents. “Shaw is a community buzzing with activity and discussion,” Geraci…

Web Development and Usability: Sweating the small stuff

Interesting blog post over at Silas Notes. Blogger Rhea quotes Jakob Nielsen, who said: “Of course, it’s important to get the big things right, or you won’t have any users. But getting the small things right enhances usability and fosters user comfort.” I’ll ad to that. From personal experience, there are a few other important…

NPR’s “Tell Me More” with Michelle Martin

I had the pleasure of being a guest on Michelle Martin’s new radio show. It didn’t have a name at that time–it’s in pilot stage. It was just announced that they now have a name–Tell Me More. Nothing is assumed.” That’s the unofficial motto of the new Monday-Friday talk show under development at NPR. Grounded…
