From “Social Media Self Preservation” by Douglas E. Welch

“I am deeply convinced of the importance and effectiveness of social media. Like the Internet itself, which made social media possible, social media allows you to expose your talents, your products, your creativity to a huge number of people all over the world. The “loose contacts” we make online are the beginning of what I call our own global family.

This isn’t one unwieldy global online community, but rather our own personalized family made up of those that bring value into our lives. Our communities might overlap in some ways, but they will never be the same. They can’t be. We are all unique individuals so therefore our communities will reflect this uniqueness In fact, when our communities are too alike, we might be just following the crowd instead of building our own community.”

Social Media Self Preservation is now available in the Amazon Kindle Bookstore.

Reaching Across the Distance –
Love Letters for Valentine’s Day 2012


A Live look at Love Letters and Poems Through History
– Reaching Across the Distance
Presented by

Love letters can reveal the true personality

of the individual that puts pen to paper.

Love letters can bridge time and place.
And they come in many different forms. 

Sometimes a love letter offers the love of a friend

and reaches across desolation
to bring the recipient back to the world of the hopeful.
Sometimes the loss a letter conveys is unexpected.
A few words can bring the reality of home
across an ocean
to a distant battlefield. 

The love can be written between the lines.

Some love letters are the trumpets that herald

the return of their author.
These letters leap across time and miles
to escort in the future.  

Do something different this Valentine’s Day,

reach across the distance 
with a love letter written in your hand,
speaking your words.

Mat Langley of the Robot Underpants podcast (Content Advisory)  let me know about this device today after he picked one up for his iPad. Mat does a variety of shows and also uses his iPad to join Google+ hangouts and wanted/needed a way to get better audio into his iPad. I have asked for Mat to give us a review of this device sometime in the near future.
