Social Media is changing the landscape of, well… everything.  Even baking.  Check out these Social Media cookies!

My friend and fellow technologist Dawn Doherty re-tweeted this really awesome article by Katie Lance: An Impressive Example: Getting Social Media Right.  I thought Katie’s story was so phenomenal, I had to repost.

WABC Radio live ( with The SBA (@The_SBA)

This past Saturday, I had the unique opportunity to discuss Cloud Computing on the radio!  It was on the Small Business Authority Hour on WABC Radio in New York. This week’s program was 100% focused on cloud computing (a subject I know quite a bit about :)).  Cloud Computing is viewed as the most important trend for business owners over the course of the next five years.

Imagine running Windows 7 on an iPad… sounds cool?  It’s real!  Cloud Desktops make it possible.  A Virtual Cloud Desktop is a personal, centralized computer located in the Cloud. Using any Internet connected device or thin client (i.e. an iPad), you can access your desktop from anywhere in the world.

CuteGeek, a technology blog written from the female perspective, recently did a profile on me: Brilliant Women in Technology: Meet Renee Schmidt  so I thought it would be proper to return the favor.  CuteGeek is a unique and user friendly technology blog with a guiding philosophy that can be summed up in a statement made by co-founder Radiris Diaz; “we represent everything men are and more…” Not only does this mean that CuteGeek is operated by women who call themselves geeks (although I call them heroines), but also that its content is directed at the technologically inclined modern woman.

Integrity on the Internet is a hot topic!  Elizabeth Boylan’s article “Do Multiple Identities Reflect a Lack of Integrity?” hits the nail on the head!  I read it and thought the way she approached the argument was exceptional. Although it may seem to some that the Internet is a place where no harm can come of establishing numerous Bruce Wayne/Batman alter egos and using these various versions and visages of the self as masks for different situations, these types of individuals ignore altogether the concept of integrity.

The iPhone 4 / iPad 2 have enhanced camera functionality (FYI: the predecessor models had only one camera, while the new devices now actually have two: forward facing and rear facing).  The new cameras also have functionalities the old one did not, like:

Camera Flash
Open the Camera app; there’s a flash icon at the top left of the screen (looks like a lightning bolt).

As Osama news broke Sunday, I posted a link in my Link Roundup to a TechCrunch story on Bin Laden’s death spreading like wildfire on Twitter.  It all started with a little tweet and the topic was trending on Twitter within minutes.
