The news from Global Neighbourhoods is a powerful echo.
If you Tweet something of interest and you have an audience of 10, or 100 or 1000 and no one retweets it, that is far as your message goes. But if you have 10 followers, and one of them has 100 and he or she retweets you, your message reaches that many more people. If of you of this wider ring… and so on.

The news from idea blob is help him help us safe before we need to be.
I have a team already working on the first phase of a project which would aggregate both major media sources (tv, radio, etc) as well as citizen journalists (via blogs, twitter, etc) and republish the information about disasters and emergencies into SMS, email, web, and other mediums.

The new from Escape from Cubicle Nation is about what we’re focusing on.

The news from Bringing Brands to Life! is that video can be habit forming.
Budgets are approved. Management is on board. They bought your vision. Whoa! Not so fast.
You and your team may think your ducks are all lined up. But are they really?

    Thanks for linking to me Liz! I sure wanted to write a response to Seth’s great post about making (or not making!) money doing what you love, but alas I am too busy finishing the book.

    Hope you are well — maybe I’ll finally get to meet you in person at SXSW!
