Social Media Doesn’t Fit Every Business Model

July 27, 2010

Social media is a lot like leggings; they naturally look great on some people, others need to work hard to pull off the trend, and yet another group should steer clear at all costs. A quick Google search for social media and business returns 257,000,000 results, most titles declare social media and business to be […]


Editorial Pet Peeves


July 26, 2010

In honor of the Bureau Chiefs (those witty folks behind @FakeAPstylebook) putting some new swag up on Zazzle, I’m sharing some writing mistakes that make my red ink boil.

Of all the tools and widgets available, I must confess to have resisted […]


Journalism and the Internet

Did new media kill the beat reporter?

July 12, 2010

In truth, the Internet didn’t kill journalism, big business killed journalism, the Internet simply helped speed the flow of the poison.
