When Apple released Leopard, one of the cooler new features was creating individual work spaces (limited I'm sure by your memory) where you can set up work areas with only the tools you need. It's a neat concept, although I admit I haven't played around with it yet.
If you want to learn more, check out the TUAW tutorial and the video below to see it how it works.
As I reported last week in my DaniWeb blog, Steve Ballmer took a public swipe at Apple recently at the McGraw Hill Summit. Now comes this ad campaign going directly for Apple's throat. Smart play, Microsoft.
As regular readers of this blog know, I publish a series of interviews for FierceContentManagement called One on one. I am pleased to announce the publication of my first eBook called One on One with Content Management Industry's Movers and Shakers, Volume 1. I just love the layout by FCM Associate Editor Molly Bernhart (who also wrote the introduction). She did a great job on this.
I'm extremely proud of this effort and I hope you will take a moment to download it and let me know what you think.
ahh thanks....twitter...better than google? it' like "ask the audience" lifeline.
That got me thinking a bit. I opened up Evernote, chose my Blog Ideas notebook and copied and pasted Yorn's Tweet into the notebook. I jotted a few notes and left it at that.
A few minutes later my daughter texted me that she needed a ride, so I hopped in the car and began driving and that idea I jotted down began percolating. I imagined myself at a party with Eric Schmidt suggesting he buy Twitter and I began formulating the opening of my blog post.
When I arrived at my destination, I pulled out my iPhone, opened the Evernote app, chose voice note and recorded the beginnings of my opening so I wouldn't forget. I came home and later that night just before I was going to go to bed, I opened Evernote (which had since synced with my iPhone app), listened to my recording and had to write the post right then and there.
I opened Google Docs, began writing and about a half hour later I had the post written. It took some tweaking before I opened my DaniWeb CMS this morning and copied it and pasted it in, formatted it, added some links and published it. In fact, the original title was "Here's Why Google Should Buy Twitter," but I didn't think that truly captured the essence of the piece, so I changed it just before publishing.
Ideas can come from anywhere. This one came from a simple Tweet that got me thinking.
I saw a post on Twitter yesterday that suggested Twitter might be better than Google, which got me thinking maybe not better, but the two certainly would play nicely together, wouldn't they? If only I could get my idea in front of Eric Schmidt, CEO at Google...
This hilarious video comes from Jet Blue, which seems to totally get how social networking works. Notice this isn't an expensive TV ad campaign. Watch, learn and be entertained as to how you can use social networking in creative ways to sell your company, raise brand awareness and save money in the process.
This video came way of The Scalable Intimacy blog. Click through and read the post. He states exactly what I thought when I saw this video.
In my DaniWeb post today, I discuss Steve Ballmer's comments about Apple at at the McGraw Hill Summit, as reported byPaidContent.org. Once again, Ballmer is not afraid to go waist deep into the big muddy, but he's only partially off base this time.
