In case you hadn’t heard, there is a big collective experience going on in the Tech world right now – CES. I say that with some sarcasm, because this event tends to transcend “business vs. consumer” quite well, so you’ve probably heard of it. Anyways, my point is that I don’t see a lot of […]


… now that I read Amber Nausland’s recent post on Brass Tack Thinking. I’ve been a bad blogger lately. Well at least on this blog. I’ve been a *bit* better on my theatre blog, but I’m also in the midst of “hell week” for the show I’m directing. I have had tremendous guilt about not […]


Today’s post was inspired by the exercise in censorship that recently appeared on the ASAE Acronym blog. There was a post entitled “Consultant Wasteland”. It was a really insightful post about the relationship between staff & the consultant. If you haven’t seen it yet, myself and Maddie Grant have shared the post on Google Buzz […]


Somewhat recently (I’m trying to catch-up on my blogging) Socialmedia.biz posted this article about why Cisco thinks vlogging is better than blogging. I can see Cisco’s point. Video is definitely more impactful, it allows you to connect with an individual face-to-face, there is an authenticity to it. There are definitely multiple benefits to vlogging. There […]


Sometimes the timing of a project affects what you do more than you’ll realize. I’ve learned that lesson recently with one of my social media projects at work. My timing was by no means perfect. Last year at conference we launched The PAnel. It’s a blog that is almost completely written by Physician Assistants (I […]


Or at least some one does enough to nominate me for a Baltimore Sun “Mobbie” (Maryland’s Outstanding Blogs). So I’m excited about it. This is the first time (I think) that this blog is being recognized by something other than another association blog. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the link-love, but it’s also […]


It’s been a little bit since I’ve done a link oriented post, so here’s what I’ve been reading lately: Google is brilliant. Seriously. Their WOM advertising techniques & styling are so simple, yet so perfect for the setting. Can we all be as brilliant as Google? Thought this was a really interesting way to put […]


This post is a collaboration between Mashable’s Summer of Social Good charitable fundraiser and Max Gladwell‘s “10 Ways” series. The post is being simultaneously published across more than 100 blogs. Social media is about connecting people and providing the tools necessary to have a conversation. That global conversation is an extremely powerful platform for spreading […]


So I was tagged by Elizabeth Engel last month in the “Why I Blog” Meme. Basically I need to explain why I blog… Well I write two blogs on my own and then I contribute on another blog, so I’ll break this down by blog. SNAP (aka this blog you are reading now) – Blogging […]


Recently ASAE released the “Power of A” campaign (aka #PWRA) to, from what I can tell, little acclaim in the association world. I really haven’t see anyone be like “wow that’s fantastic, that will really help us as an association reach our members”.  In fact, Chris Bailey from Gravit8 had some suggestions to make the […]
