Want to keep a diary but don’t know what to write?  There’s an app for that!  Introducing Grid Diary, a new app for keeping a diary. It asks you questions to inspire your inner journalist.

Keeping a diary is a great way to document your life. By writing down your story, it often feels as though you’re writing yourself into history, capturing a piece of yourself for the sake of posterity with the added accouterment of your very own literary quips and flourishes.

Technology in Israel: I spent a week in Israel meeting with leaders in tech. The result is a thoughtful view of a tiny country that few ever get to see.

If you’re wondering why I haven’t blogged in the last week or so, it’s because I was traveling (with a very tight schedule). Last week I had the pleasure and privilege of taking part in a delegation trip to Israel to meet with the country’s leaders in technology (startups, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, investors, incubators and more). The invitation was extended by the Israeli Consulate of NY and Israel’s Foreign Trade Ministry. The attendees, in addition to myself, were a handful of fellow U.S. bloggers. The trip’s objective was to immerse the delegation into technology in Israel, a tech and startup scene that’s been dubbed the ‘Startup Nation,’ which is also the title of a best-selling book on the very subject.

Are we living in the moment or too busy with our smartphone cameras, taking pictures?

Imagine this: you are watching your favorite league game in a stadium for the first time ever, and it turns out to be a big match. With the final home run, you know victory is yours. The entire stadium is on its feet, yelling happily at the top of their lungs – their happiness rests only in the moment. But you’re not “there” – you’re too busy talking pictures!

The Internet is awash with job offers; all you have to do is check your spam folder –you’ll find a “guru” telling you that he/she will teach you how to earn $1,000-7,000 a week after buying his/her book or CD. That’s a scam– and no matter how tempting the email/video offer looks, do not buy it. You don’t have to pay someone to give you a job; it should be the other way around. Last year, more than 17,000 work-from-home  internet scams and spam  were reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center, costing victims over $20 million in losses.

Facebook is initiating an advertising exchange that will let advertisers reach their target audience via the Facebook site.

Facebook Exchange will be a new revenue boosting measure for Facebook, one that is sure to parlay investor fears, to some extent; especially after the company’s turbulent Facebook IPO late last month.

Here’s how Facebook Exchange works: suppose you’re browsing a travel site to check flights to Heathrow but you don’t end up purchasing one.  The travel site can drop a cookie into your browser, and now, when you return to Facebook, you will be “retargeted” to see display ads for discounted tickets to London.

Today Geek is Chic. In fact Mark Zukerberg‘s wedding got the Paparazzi as excited as Lady Gaga’s latest world tour. In our day and age it seems as though there’s been a paradigm shift. Techies now draw the same attention as Hollywood celebs. Ironically, unlike many “reality stars,” techies are famous for actually doing (or creating) something.

The eBook erotica craze didn’t begin with the bestselling book Fifty Shades of Grey. With respect to eBook erotica, there were writers, mostly women, writing erotic stories to be later sold on the internet, way before Fifty Shades of Grey came anywhere near the mainstream. In fact, women writing erotica began way before the Internet. Just google Anais Nin.

Spirituality for Kids is a novel site that was designed for parents and kids to have FUN, solve problems together and develop spiritual values.

Technology can make or break a life –it’s a fact. This is especially so for kids. Children growing up, left alone to play violent video games, may have the tendency, later on, to view life as nothing but a series of battles to be fought. Today, even child psychiatrist will advise parents to train children from early on to instinctively distinguish virtual life from real life.

What’s ‘Tech for Women’ Anyway?

Statistically speaking, women are far more tech savvy than many think. I’ve often cited a Bloomberg article on female tech prowess, and for the sake of substantiating this post, in recap fashion, let me share again those incredible statistics
