Re: As Rex Tillerson considers ditching reporters, bureau chiefs hash out the details

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:03:58 -0000

Media is not and should not be nationalistic. If Tillerson insists on traveling abroad without a press corps, then it should be the role of foreign media and/or US media with foreign bureaus to work cooperatively to keep track of him and share information without being devoted to their own profits.

Re: Ivanka Trump to meet with Al Gore

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 11:07:25 -0000

I don't understand why Gore is going to Trump Tower. Why can't Ivanka meet with him outside? Is it a Secret Service thing?

Facebook will adapt. As will its users.

Re: WATCH LIVE: PBS NewsHour Democratic Primary Debate

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 11:07:19 -0000

Lovely that PBS is hosting this -- but is it asking too much for PBS to host a Republican debate later this year? That would be heaven to me -- watching GOP candidates talk about the arts and their plans to keeping funding it.

Re: The Importance of Having a Destination (even if it's not perfect)

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 17:12:55 -0000

One of my favorite quotations is by John Steinbeck, which he pens in "Travels with Charley" the following passage:

"In Spanish there is a word for which I can’t find a counterword in English. It is the verb vacilar, present participle vacilando. It does not mean vacillating at all. If one is vacilando, he is going somewhere, but does not greatly care whether or not he gets there, although he has direction. Everything in the world must have a design or the human mind rejects it. But in addition, it must have purpose or the human conscience shies away from it."

Re: Are you someone that you’d want to pay attention to?

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:53:17 -0000

A few years ago when everyone was writing books on social media this, social media that, I asked my blog readers why I should write a book. Their response was swift: because we'd want to read your voice.

I always keep that in mind when I question my value -- on anything. Regardless how many other voices exist on that thing, if mine is vacant then I should say something. And, I usually do.

Re: Why Implementing the Plain Writing Act Will Take Decades

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:33:16 -0000

After four years, can any of us watchers and doers claim that anything worthwhile has been achieved? A few best practices in the federal sector -- but I'm waiting for trickle down adoption into state and local. That's where the real change would take decades to occur.

Re: Creating a Digital Marketing Budget

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:26:40 -0000

Hi Siobhan, how do you respond to the critique of digital marketing degrees in that they teach trends but not sustainability? For instance, Facebook is constantly rewriting its algorithm and changing features. Do students learn specific tactics that might use a Facebook feature that disappears when they graduate; or do they learn big picture concepts that are not platform-specific?

Re: Narrow Roads Are Better Than Crosswalks

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:05:38 -0000

That's a fascinating quote -- and a more fascinating Salon article. Erecting more signage in communities is not the answer, not because of cost but because of blight. There are enough signs alongside roads and another sign will blend in, not create focus. I don't know the solution other than what Rachel suggested to redefine why we have roads and to change them.

Re: Facebook Notes: The Next Publishing Platform?

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:52:08 -0000

...and people keep saying that blogging is a lost art and is dying. Bullshit, I say. Facebook Notes (both the past version popular with tagging friends in memes and the new version however it resembles) is further proof.

Re: How to Get Recognized For Your Work

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:02:39 -0000

I'm late to the party but thanks for tweaking your behind-the-scenes RSS settings because I'm now seeing the full post in my feed reader. I know a lot of people prefer to subscribe to blogs by email notification; but I'm old school and prefer RSS. It's annoying when I have to click to the site to read the full post. I now can see it all in the reader; and only clicked here to write this nice comment. Cheers Kevin.

Is your blog a product of your hobby or your business?

Re: What’s in a Word? Adding Definition to Public Relations

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 09:59:56 -0000

Perhaps you don't need a definition but a new term. A few years ago, I joined other bloggers and wrote why public relations is about people and should be renamed people relations. Who needs to define people relations, Vanessa?

Re: 4 Ways PR Agencies Capitalize on Snow Days

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 09:57:10 -0000

Waitasec Scott. You don't do those tasks on non-snow days? I ensure my email inbox is empty by the time I go to sleep and I've been practicing this for two years. Either I reply to messages or archive them for short-term response or long-term storage. GMail helps with labels.

Re: Why Social Media Is More Important Than Your Résumé

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 14:18:57 -0000

We are saying the same thing: Blanket and umbrella statements hold zero weight.

Re: Why Social Media Is More Important Than Your Résumé

Wed, 21 Jan 2015 20:52:11 -0000

I agree with you to a point, Kevin. You assume said employer uses social media. But if the person doesn't have a Twitter account, how relevant is it that you are tweeting? In my case, I have a hard copy version of my resume; but I also have comparable content on my LinkedIn profile and at which is what I suggest would-be employers visit.

See, people use social media differently. I use Twitter most of the time for casual chit-chat and an employer will only learn that I'm sociable. I don't allow search engines to index my Facebook profile (and the updates I specify for friends-only). What's left? Google+? What's that? But, like you, I also blog -- and, to me, that's the best way for someone to understand me. When job ads ask for writing samples, I point them to my blog and/or to specific posts that received a lot of social shares.

Re: What I Learned From Leaving The 9-to-5 (2014 Year In Review)

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 18:40:57 -0000

On the flip side you have someone like me who used to work 40+ hours a week until a layoff coincided with the recession, you created (or, I created) a business because nobody was hiring. I kept the business for five years and I'm now looking to return to the full-time workforce, to escape coworking and return to coworkers.

Re: Sweigh: A New Social Media App with All The Answers

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 23:58:33 -0000

Networking sites are launched daily. I don't grasp the value of joining new ones. I'd rather create a SurveyMonkey poll, tweet etc a link to it, and the app will give me statistics on what percentage answered which.

Re: Quitting Facebook For 99 Days: An Experiment In Digital Happiness

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 23:30:39 -0000

You don't need to unfriend people to maintain balance; just add the noisemakers to a friend list of their own and this enables them to see your stuff but you won't see them unless you click into the list.

Re: Why a Blue State Like Massachusetts Can Have Competitive Elections

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 08:18:10 -0000

You missed another reason promoting electoral competitiveness: party designation. Across the state, 53% of registered voters are "unenrolled" aka independents. Blue we may be, but we are also open minded.

Re: Local Targeting Using Yik Yak

I never heard of it but just installed it as I sit at a Boston Starbucks. It's interesting... and I see what you mean about NSFW screenshots!

Do you subscribe to other print magazines for pleasure, Scott?

It's been years since I've paid for a print mag. I receive a bunch of complimentary subscriptions due to different hats I wear but these are more industry publications and not mainstream ones such as Time. I know my Mom still gets Newsweek and she loves it; but even she recently quit her 20+ year Boston Globe subscription and reads it digitally.
