No comment

I recently went to a blog that I hadn’t been to in a long time. Not because they’re less relevant. I’ve just been busy. At first the site appeared as it always has. Good content with ads running amok down the right hand side of the screen. It took a minute but I finally realized that there were no comments on their posts. I remember there consistently being 10-15 comments per...

How is Tron Legacy like good social media?

H

Yes I know the movie has been out for a while. I’ve been busy! I was actually watching some of the DVD extras and found out that Joseph Kosinki, the director of Tron Legacy was an architect. My bachelors degree is in architecture and I understand that mindset. The job of an architect is to create the potential for relationships to occur. They create spaces, lighting and texture that...

After all, 33% of all Internet traffic in the US is on Facebook. Shouldn’t I be where my customers are? Also, if my customers are moving to...

Exit through the social media shop

E

I finally got a chance to see the “Banksy Movie” (Exit Through the Gift Shop) and it was not what I expected. Never is. For those of you that don’t know who Banksy is; he’s a street artist. He uses stencils and cans of spray paint to share his point of view. He’s from England and other than that, we don’t know much. His identity is a mystery. (If that’s...

The impact of social media on architecture

T

I have a friend who’s an architect and we recently had an interesting conversation around the concept of community; online and off-line. Online communities extend to all areas of the world, filled with people that you’ve met over the years. LinkedIn and Facebook are excellent mediums for international connections as well as connecting with people in the next cube over. As for off-line...
