Curating your butt

I was inspired by Marc Hedlund's post to look at what I like and make some suggestions in the blogging world. Or as he suggested, "curating your butt" on to someone's blog I like. I know this is not dissimilar to blogday, but why not share the wealth all year round?

My first suggestion is "Bit of Business" from Brian Landi, who started blogging around the same time as me and provides a mishmosh of topics like myself. 
We've interchanged a bit about topics we talked about online at virtually the same time, which fuels my "crowd conscience" notion (for another post) about how bloggers may be posting about similar topics at the same time. 
Second, Stanford over@pushingsocial. He's actually been willing to engage and has largely (at least according to what I've seen) put his thoughts into action. Learning lots from his output!
Finally, Wayne Howard over at Business and Pleasure. He started near the same time I did, but was well ahead of figuring out what he wanted to do with his blog. His is a good model for what you can do with blogging as a business (I think).
Any suggestions?

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
