Social Media Club’s Call to Duty

What Heather got me thinking about is the importance of getting outside your comfort area, extending your reach, and communicating upward and outward.  Heather isn’t one to run with the VC types, but […]

Thank You, Patti Smith

Full Disclosure – the best part of my Seattle trip had nothing to do with Gnomedex. On Saturday evening, Keturah and I started randomly walking around downtown Seattle looking for a good place to have dinner. We started walking down Pike Street and were almost at Pike Place Market when we saw a long line […]
