Klout and Personal Branding Online

Monday, November 14th, 2016

During my never ending job search I sometimes get questions or comments about something on my website, sometimes the comments are positive, sometimes less so. In fact I think people who don’t value honesty and integrity probably never interview me at all. That said a lot of effort has gone into this website over the last ten or fifteen years.

I finally found a use for Google+

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

I only have so much time for online social networks, the one I use the most because it works well on my iPhone is Twitter.

Turns out I was partially correct. Some people on Twitter were happy for the founders of Gowalla as they made some money selling out to Facebook but their users weren’t happy…

“I told you so!”

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

LinkedIn recently had it’s IPO and miraculously it kept going up even after the IPO price had been increased several times. This seemed to have surprised some onlookers and doomsayers talk of another ‘tech bubble’. I don’t think that is likely to happen again as too many people learned too many lessons, however greed is greed.
