I’ll …

Who does your LinkedIn profile belong to? Wait, I know we’ve asked the question of who do your LI contacts belong to… but I’m asking… who does your LinkedIn profile and all that lovely real estate within your profile belong to?

Mad Men Season 5 started this past week. Full disclosure, before this past week’s episode, I’ve watched a total of 6 minutes of Mad Men.  But the hype was too much for me to bear, so I DVR’d it and sat and watched it the other night.  It’s awright. But… I liked it a lot more when I heard this …

This past week I’ve been putting some finishing touches on a Pecha Kucha presentation I’m giving at the end of the month. Pecha Kucha – pronounced “pa-chok-cha” – is a style of presentation made up of 20 slides (predominately images) shown for 20 seconds each.  Originally devised by architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in 2003 in Japan, it was …
