Maria and I are heading out of Boston and hitting the road for NY right now. We’re moving into our new place in the city and will have five days of no home access to the Web (gasp). Luckily, I’m sure we’ll find thousands of WIFI spots to grab a connection, but it’s still thrown […]


Last Monday, as most of you know, @amyyen @mariagarcia and I graduated from Emerson College. Our commencement speech was delivered by Emerson alumnus, Doug Herzog, president of MTV Networks Entertainment. In true digital native style, I sat in the audience armed with my Flip Video so I could record the anecdotes and advice he offered […]


Last night, at the Spring Social Media + Boston Communicators Outing @swirlingmedia (ie. Patrick Richardson) and crew discussed the need to start a fund to save Twitter.

@amyyen and @mariagarcia try to tweet as we walk, talk and shop in the city. Let’s just say, it takes some pretty good coordination to make that work. I know that one of the great things about Twitter is how mobile it is, but I find it really hard to tweet when I’m not totally […]


Three years ago, Steve Baker and Heather Green told BW readers why “Blogs Will Change Your Business.” As Steve and Heather say, “a lot has changed since then.” They’ve teamed up again and partnered with experts in digital as well as average readers of their Blogspotting blog and Twitter feeds to update the story and […]
