Every once in a while, someone comes up with an idea that allows us to kill a TREMENDOUS amount of time.

When my Dad was a kid, back in the late 60’s and early 70’s (sorry for that Dad), they had comic books and GI JOE’s. Today, for better or worse, we’ve made our way from the “life-like hair” of the GI JOE, and “Captain America’s shield” to FarmVille and Twitter feeds.

But my own time waster of choice is StumbleUpon.

I’m rather obsessed with Social Media (an understatement at best). Apparently, so is Snoop Dogg!  Social Media is a broad term that means much more than “the use of web-based…technologies to turn communication into interactive dialogue.”

Want to know if you have clout on the Web?  Now there’s a way to track your self-brand!  It’s called Klout!

I love anything that not only premeditates the presence of an issue, but that also includes a thoughtful solution for it.

The Issue: As people become increasingly focused on the world of internet marketing, social media, self-branding and social networking, it’s easy to lose track of how well our efforts are actually doing.

About.Me, a new tool for self-branding, is a free way to make an introduction to… yourself! 

As the business world takes faster and longer strides into the future, it is also heading towards the technological age. Along with this progression and evolution, there is a budding burden upon the shoulders of the citizens of tomorrow. It is no longer optional for those who wish to succeed in business to choose whether or not to pay attention to the surrounding technological advances; but an absolute necessity.

Foursquare, a geo-location social networking tool that pioneered the “check-in” sphere, hit a user base of 10 million this week.  People use Foursquare to check in and let people know where they are at the moment.  To commemorate a modest growth from zero users to 10 million in a little over 2 years, the NY-based company published

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.

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.

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.

Social Media has changed relationships, the way we communicate and even break ups with our ex’s.

Once upon a time, breaking up meant an awkward conversation, removing a picture or two from your bed stand, and packing up your ex’s things into a box –never to be seen again.  If your ex tried to call you afterward, you could ignore the call by sending it to voicemail.  These days breakups are way different.  Aside from having to publicly display your changed relationship status to 500+ Facebook friends and then field tons of questions from people you hardly speak with (case in point: misery loves company), there are so many things to consider, like: do I unfriend? Just the ex, or the ex and his/her friends? Their family? Where do you draw the line?
