social media

I’m on YouTube

You can find me on You Tube for a talk I did on using Social Media to tell better stories, for a not-for-profit type workshop. The link is:

I haven’t watched the whole thing, but I’m not thrilled with the angle of filming (the person was on the floor, I was standing). Of course, the content is outstanding 🙂


Bitpim for Mac Rocks!!!

Ok, I lost my cell phone. If you’re trying to reach me, I may not have your number. But I may! Thanks to BitPim for mac. Bitpim is an excellent little application that allows you to do useful things like backing up your phone, without paying Verizon for one of their services.
A post here has a great summary of how to use this app on a Mac.
I had backed up my old phone a few months ago. So, I was able to upload the numbers from them back into my new phone. Awesome!!!


Ross Rubin, I salute you

Fun with Ross, my old Cornell buddy, who takes “Who’s on First” to a new level with the HP controversy. A small sample:

 Lou: Ah, then maybe you can help sort it all out for me. Now, the person who used to be HP’s chairman, what’s her name?
Bud: Dunn.

Lou: What do you mean, done? You didn’t tell me!

Bud: I just did. Dunn!

Speaking at the Association for Women in Communications, Westchester

I’ve been asked to speak on a panel at the Association for Women in Communications, Westchester Chapter.

The event is on Wednesday, November 15th, and the description says:

Do you have a fear of new forms of media? Are blogs, social networks, podcasts, RSS feeds, MySpace and YouTube part of an alien world to you? Or, are you media-savvy, but just not sure what’s a sound investment and what’s a passing fad?

Join us when our expert panelists—up-to-speed on a wide range of new media AND how they can be applied to communications and marketing—share their perspectives and practical tips.

I believe I have a few things to say about this, and there are some other great panelists too. My friend Renee Edelman of Edelman PR is moderating. If you’re in the Tarrytown area, please come!


Guess where I won’t be shopping?

My cousin David found this store on his visit to Prague. In case you don’t know what it means, here’s a list of Yiddish phrases.
