Here in the Austin area, there are 220 minutes left until 2010 begins.  I realize that there's already been a lot of talk about this next fact, but I still find it amazing that ten years have passed since the Y2K scare.  My wife was a computer programmer at the time, so she was utterly unconcerne...

I think I've mentioned here a few times just how much I like to read.  In fact, if you were to visit our home and look around, you might be struck by the sheer number of books that we have here.  My wife is also a reader, as are our kids.  I have no idea how many books we have, but it's definitel...
In case you missed it, our guest today on Social Media Edge was Jeff Turner, president of Real Estate Shows, serial entrepreneur, and Renaissance man.  Jeff also reigns in my mind as the most active listener I have met in person to date.

Offered at $314,000, this large one-story home backs to a densely wooded gr...
My mom, Margie Wright, is the director of the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas, which is located near downtown Dallas.  She's been working there for just over a decade, as part of a long career in social work and public service for those who really need help.  I just wanted to help get he...
I am in the midst of developing a new Wordpress blog that I intend to use to write about marketing, social media (or "new media", if you prefer to be really cutting edge about it), and some of the random business ideas that I seem to have floating around in my head these days.  I have already pai...
I read a comment responding to one of Jeremy Blanton's posts, and it struck me as old-fashioned in the era of social media.  In a nutshell, this member stated that they didn't have any interest in sharing ActiveRain with others in their office, since it was too valuable a tool, and they wanted to...
