WAMU FLUNKS HISTORY - 09/25/08 10:31 PM
Just heard the breaking news about Washington Mutual officially credited as the biggest bank failure in the history of our country (that's 231 years of dollars and sense accounted for). Washington Mutual, considered the largest savings bank in America, has been seized by Federal Regulations, with "insuffieient liquidity" determined as cause of pending extinction. Press reports are saying that J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo could be preparing to breathe new life into the left-standing assets and buy them up. But... who is next?! Will this spiraling ever begin spinning back to help with home loans? We need a message of hope here. Can anyone see a light at (13 comments)
refrain: WHERE HAVE ALL THE MORTGAGES GONE? Long time Passing.... - 09/18/08 11:00 AM
A grove of aspen trees share a common root system. If the root system is weakened, how long can the tree community survive, much less begin to grow again? I just heard about the massive assistance being given to huge banking companies like AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I just heard the news of how banks worldwide are now pumping money back into the economy like a huge wave--- of over 200 billion. Evidently, the fear in the economy is contagious and has now spread throughout the world. But, what about mortgages? What about this infrastructure close to the root (17 comments)
AN ARRANGEMENT OF CHAIRS - Sitting In On Social Networking - 09/15/08 10:37 AM
Katie Evans from Greenville, NC blogged about musical chairs this morning. Thanks, Katie. It got me remembering the childhood game and the overwhelming anxiety that charged my body and the cinch of a foreboding knot in my stomach...isolation and exclusion approaching...no place for me to exist in the world that is neatly set out where everyone else is securely positioned...wishing I could fly, far away, or simply evaporate into thin air. I really did not like that game at all. Are there any readers out there that grew up and actually liked that game? I thought it was purely punishment, just (18 comments)

MEDIA UNMUZZLED - Notes from the Social Media WEBINAR, Session 1 - 09/05/08 10:49 PM
Today was the first of 12 SESSIONS produced by the DOMUS CONSULTING GROUP's Social Media Webinar Series for ACTIVE RAINERS (and others, but very specially priced for us!) Practically a giveaway! Thanks to BRAD ANDERSOHN for the blog-rally about this (see Social Media & Marketing Webinars). He was in attendance, along with DOMUS co-founders, KEVIN BOER and PAT KITANO. I knew I couldn't afford to miss it, especially since I only pick up on these technological advances after lots of absorbing and practicing. My brain was wired from a different generation---and then some--- and so I usually seem to have a lot of (23 comments)
