Thoughts on Google Buzz?

I think Google Buzz allows you to make way more meaningful connections with people as opposed to something like Twitter where you’re just getting “followers” who aren’t really paying attention (how can they when the dashboard is always full of posts and the posts are limited to 140 characters.) Not to mention most of these followers were likely generated / auto-followed by Bots anyway!

Don’t get me wrong, reading about what you ate for lunch or other random thoughts are cool in some respects, but if you want to make better connections and share content and engage your audience in a more meaningful way, I think Buzz is the way to go – nevermind the amazing interface with gmail, google reader, google wave and integration with your mobile device… Read more of Thoughts on Google Buzz?

Google Buzz – Is This the Next New Thing?

Google Buzz: What, Where, When, Why and How

High Achievement

It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement. And at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
