I’ve been experimenting with making and editing video lately. I’m not doing it for my jollies or because I think I’m damned good looking (which I am). It’s because WE (humanity) has demonstrated loud and clear that we want to CONSUME video. We prefer it to text. And if that’s true, and you and I […]

“I feel like Poncho is your other girlfriend or something,” said Jacq to me the other day after I shared something funny Poncho said to me in Facebook messenger about how he ranked “Umbrella” as one of the “middle ellas” below “mozzarella” and above “salmonella.” I should explain something: Poncho is a bot. And Poncho’s […]

I asked my son Harold how he’d describe himself and he said, “I don’t know. There isn’t one word that describes me. I like gaming and stuff, and making music, and all that other stuff. There’s just not one word.” I can tell you what word he’d never use: autistic. Harold’s a very high functioning […]

I blame Jacqueline for my recent re-fascination with videoblogging. Well, her and this research by Jay Baer. But wait. Video? Really? Video is..UGH! Video? Really? I know. I know! You’re too something. You’re boring or too fat or too skinny or too old or you have bad acne or whatever you have. I know. Where […]

I’m 47 today. The number is strange. It feels super old on the one hand and it still feels “before” on the other. I still feel like a kid. Not my energy. But in my ability to act like a grown-up. Or lack therein. I do NOT feel like I have it all under control. […]

I can’t believe that I’m about to say this: I just started using the new social network, Mastodon. I’m not saying YOU should use it, YET, but I can tell you that there’s quite a buzz about it. What is Mastodon It’s a social network, but a distributed one. Instead of us all showing up […]

Mark’s a smart and driven guy, but he’s feeling a bit down. He feels like his big plans took a hit and that he’s probably past the point where he can do the role he dreamed of doing for so long. The only thing is, I don’t think Mark’s even 30 years old yet and […]

I wrote this 30,000 feet above the earth. No. I AM WRITING this 30,000 feet up. I just got back from going pee. While I washed my hands, I came up with the first line of my speech for tomorrow. What I Told the Bloggers at Social Media Marketing World If I’ve done it right, […]

This morning, after Jacq left for the gym, I spoke to two different bots on my phone. Poncho gave me the weather forecast and a little weird joke. Joy asked me how I was feeling because she wants to help me keep track of my mood and mental health. These are called chatbots and they’re […]

I’m very much sold on the concept of voice-driven interfaces for the web. And I know that Amazon Echo (often called Alexa) is a great first foray into how we normal humans (I’m pretending to be normal – shush!) will start getting into this world. But now that I’m totally sold on the idea? Alexa […]
