With the recent Initial Public Offering of Facebook, I thought it might be worthwhile to level set my thoughts on the major Social Media players currently.

The big draw of Social Media from the beginning has been the connectedness. The things that made this possible were the freedom to communicate without barriers (for the most part), the democracy of reciprocity – it was a two way relationship, it was no longer solely about those that could speak hogging the microphone. Everyone had a microphone and there is disruptive, wonderful beauty in that.

I am not a big proponent of Valentine’s Day. I am not a big fan of holidays in general for that matter. It just seems that we, as a culture, take great ideas and over think them to the point that we destroy all the fun in them. Look at Sundays for instance – a […]

While attending CES this year for work, I tweeted my adventures, but since I am fundamentally a very boring person in real life, I figured it made sense to tweet my fake adventures too, just to make it interesting to others. Here are my #FakeCES tweets.

I no longer consider myself a full-fledged nerd or a full on geek. At a certain point life just kind of takes over and those things that dominated our perception of ourselves lose some of their traction, as Craig so aptly explained previously. Right now, I tend to refer to myself as a Reformed Geek. Life has staged an intervention for me and forced me into its own 12 step program that has curtailed my dogged determination to be fully immersed in nerdology.

BLOGMASTER 2000: Mr. Ben Kent – filmmaker, programmer, funny person, and genuinely good guy. How are you doing and thanks for being my inaugural interview here on Blogmaster2000.

My main hope with this series of interviews, as we discussed briefly when I reached out to you about participating, is to connect with people I genuinely admire and try to dig in a little bit to get a better idea of what drives them (you) and how you got here from there. So, if you are ready, here we go…

What was your dream job as a kid? How is this different from where you are now?

This video was recorded and animated, by Mike Terrell, at mediaRif studios.

Have you noticed on Facebook that not everyone or every page that you are following shows up in your newsfeed? This has become much more pronounced over the last couple of months as FB has pushed through several relatively big platform updates. It becomes especially noticeable if you simultaneously browse your newsfeed on the website and on an aggregator app like Seesmic, or on a mobile app like SocialScope for Blackberry.

Good music, the kind that thumps along so hard that you can’t help but start dancing, whirls out from a core of rhythm and repetition. Once a good song gets under your skin, it doesn’t leave you. You sing along; you move your feet; you smile and settle in for the ride. Developing any skill, writing being no exception, is like letting a good groove get into your soul and dancing along.

Just a quick thought if you’re looking to up your geek Cred: Should you find yourself delving into the deepest and darkest corners of the internet (don’t wake the Balrog) and find yourself on YouTube, do yourself a favor and enjoy a game of snake.

That’s right, you can play snake on any YouTube video.
