#iahsfb, tweets and the “news”

My previous job to Clickstop was in “the media”.  At Source Media group in the web department team – to be exact.  Back in those days I used to have what may be referred to as “spirited discussions” with colleagues about social media and twitter and the like.

Profanity filter for WordPress

Image via Wikipedia We’re working on a new version of our website at work.  We currently use Intense Debate for comments – but we want to leverage Buddy Press more – so we chose to go with the built in stuff.  That being said – we need a profanity filter – I think we’ll give […]

5 tips for better craigslist response

My dad passed away about a year ago and he was a collector.  You’ve seem the show “Pickers”?  How about “Hoarders”?  We’re somewhere in between – unfortunately, closer to the latter.  Though this process I’ve started to become really familiar with craigslist and seen things I’ve done work and not work and thought I would […]

Some of my latest posts there have been about the new Mac Mini, which I recently purchased for use as an […]

Why TV Lost

Why TV Lost. “About twenty years ago people noticed computers and TV were on a collision course and started to speculate about what they’d produce when they converged. We now know the answer: computers. It’s clear now that even by using the word “convergence” we were giving TV too much credit. This won’t be convergence […]

Rebuild a TV Station on the cheap

I’ve been having some hallway discussions with our CEO Chuck Peters (or as I affectionalty refer to him as “Chucky P”).  I think it started after I was talking too much about how cheap I thought I could rebuild a TV station.  I was tossing around a number which was close to 10% of the […]
