The ASL crew had an awesome night with Adrant’s Steve Hall at the ROFLCon party at The Barbarian Group office. In response to Will’s “She’s got MySpace Angles” post, Steve snapped this shot to show off his best angle for his profile (Note the filter used on the second. A nice classic B&W or better […]


Trendsspotting has an awesome post up/ presentation on SlideShare that gives a roundup of 10 marketing influencers’ thoughts on trends we’ll see this year. I want to know what the ASL crew and readers here think. What’s in, what’s out… you know the drill. -Amanda Mooney

My intentions were not to embarrass him, or […]


I recently read an interesting take on Chris Anderson’s assertion that the future of business is free from Max Kalehoff on his AttentionMax blog (a must-subscribe-to site). I want your perspective as digital natives. Most of us actually started high school in ’99 when Napster was formed. We suddenly had money in our pockets to […]


Oh man- the day finally arrived! We have Facebook Chat! My first impressions: I love it! I definitely like the UI better than GTalk and AIM but wish it had VOIP and group chat. I still prefer Skype as my platform of choice but I’m pretty excited about this shiny new social media tool. What […]
