No such thing as free time.

No such thing as downtime.

All you got is life time.

Go.

Asbestos & roadkill

Not sure I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I’m a cyclist. As in I ride a road bike for as many miles as time and body affords. For those of you that ride, you understand the attraction to the sport and the calm that it can bring.

I’ve posted about the flavors of social commerce before and mentioned Diesel’s in-store connection to Facebook in Spain. It looks like the experiment is over and they’re going to promote this form of social commerce using QR codes. I love it!

Does your business need an app?

I keep hearing this question. Well, actually it’s more like, “Does my business need an app?” but you get the idea. The answer is, of course; it depends! It depends on whether your business has a brand. (Yes. There are many companies with almost no brand and some make quite a lot of money.) Apps are brand tools. They facilitate your brand experience on a mobile device. That brand...
