A homeless guy was holding a sign that said:...
malty: I stared at the sign thinking it might actually read Veteran. It didn’t, it said Vegan. When you are homeless, do you get to be picky? I guess beggars can be choosers.

A little positive reinforcement goes a long way. Give someone props near you; it’ll help them out.
Marco Arment, you do good work

My article about America’s abysmal cell phone scene ran on Dave Taylor’s website a few days ago. I don’t know how I missed it but give it a read and maybe a comment, will ya?

Twitter is peaking....or is it?
Micropersuasion’s Steve Rubel argues that Twitter is peaking in this article but is it really? I doubt it. Here’s why: Twitter is experiencing a temporary high from all of the commotion about the service in the past two weeks. That isn’t to say that Twitter is going to stop growing, but it isn’t growing as it normally would. Between Oprah encouraging her army of followers...

The Cure - A Letter To Elise
I missed my Tumblr birthday which was two days ago (April 23). Thanks to everyone who has made this site what it is in the past 367 days. From the people who helped me design it along the way to the people who participate in discussions with reblogs and likes, I appreciate every little bit. Here’s to another 363 days and many, many more! Thanks again. Zack
I'm back (now with more social media!)

I got a job at the paper I work for (well, online paper), the CU Independent, as their Social Media Outreach editor. They liked the ideas that I have for making our small paper so much bigger as...

Since jumping off of Tweetdeck and onto Tweetie one thing has become apparent. I get more done. No more refresh button to taunt me and say, “Hey Zack, maybe new Tweets came in. What the hell, refresh me.” No more notifications telling me that my saved searches have updated with new results or that I got a new direct message which I have to check because I have no self control.
