The Future Of Business - The NEW Attention Shift

Are you giving it away? - The Future Of Business - The NEW Attention Shift -

The modem was screeching, trying to make that handshake with another modem, if I could just connect to that modem, I could get the information I need. I had a book with pages of phone numbers for most of the BBS’s out on there in the world, they published books with theme as well. You could download drivers and programs, it was great fun, but it took forever on a 300 or 2400 Baud modem. The days…

Content by any other name - Content Marketing Is A Scam! -

Teri Conrad

Who are you a fan of, who gets your attention, have you told them, if not, do it, tell them in as many ways as you can. We all look for validation, it doesn’t matter from whom really, we’ll take the praise from people we may never know, we just need to feel important, what’s sad about this need is, we’re already important!

The Shameless Plug Or Sharing

Some Thoughts On - The Shameless Plug -

We really do like to promote ourselves, oh sure we say we don’t like to talk about ourselves, or pump what we do and who we might be in the pecking order. We do want people to know what we do and how well we’ve done it, we merely disguise it as a shameless plug, well we jest that at it.

One not talked about often, is emails from those…

Security & Privacy

Which Do You Prefer - Security & Privacy -

There is a difference. With all that is changing in the world, countries considered super powers, all that they can do, one thing is certain, we can’t have both.
