The New iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – My Discussion With Mark Reardon on KMOX Radio

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are scheduled to ship any day now. The 6 is a 4.7″ phone, while the 6 Plus is a 5.5″ monster phablet. Which one am I going to buy? I am still undecided, but that big phone is so tempting. I use my phone for email, tweeting, texting, […]

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Click below to listen to my most recent appearance on the Mark Reardon show on KMOX 1120. We discussed the super-successful ALS Ice Bucket Challenge charitable campaign that’s generated well over $60mm in donations, and even more visibility and awareness. Has the backlash begun? How did this campaign take off? When people refuse to do […]

Texting and Driving – Dangerous!

A few months ago, I joined Mark Reardon on KMOX for a discussion on texting and driving. He noted that I posted about the subject on Facebook and foolishly challenged me to a debate. In all seriousness, I always enjoy going on Mark’s show, and I hope you enjoy the discussion we had. And I […]

One Tweet to a Life in Hell – The Justine Sacco Affair

Some people are scared to use social media. It seems too “Wild Wild West” to them. Some of those people are fearful of learning how to do it, some are scared to make a big mistake, and some wish for a simpler time when the definition of “friend” was narrower and “in the flesh.” As […]

Workplace Horror Stories – My Appearance On The Mark Reardon Show on KMOX

Recently on Facebook, I posted about a restaurant in Jerusalem offering a 50% discount in exchange for the patron simply turning off their mobile phone. Then, I posted a request – give me your worst workplace horror stories – negative events that have happened in your working life, and my Facebook friends lit up the […]

The Price of Soda at Work – A Discussion with Mark Reardon of KMOX Radio

Through the haze of Obamacare website snafus, government shutdowns, gun control and all of the other sticky issues of our day, only one topic is worthy of serious discussion and consideration here on my blog: what should a can of soda from the work soda machine cost? Don’t laugh! There’s simply no way a can […]

Larry Conners and His Facebook Problem

I’ll spare you the details, as they’re available here, here, here, here, here and here. The summary is that local St. Louis TV anchor Larry Conners, who had been on the air for 34 years, was fired after alleging on his work Facebook page that a 2012 interview he did with President Obama drew the […]

Unfriending People On Facebook

When scanning your Facebook news feed, do you ever run across posts that infuriate you? Do you have certain trollers that always jump in on your posts and make comments that get your goat? Did you make Facebook friends with a stranger a year or two ago, and now you wonder why you’re staring at […]

The Bud Light Blind Date Ad – Yay or Nay?

As Mark Reardon sat in front of his TV watching the first and second round of the NCAA basketball tournament, he claims to have been tormented by the spectre of the Bud Light ad you see above. He contacted me and asked what I thought of the ad, and I told him we likely had […]

Birth of a Meme – Why Did The Harlem Shake Take Off?

In a scant eight days, the Harlem Shake went from a song that was released in August 2012 to an crowdsourced international YouTube phenomenon. One can claim to be sick of this meme, but 1 billion YouTube views and over 300,000 versions later, I’m thinking that all of us watched at least a few Harlem […]
