On Thanksgiving: I’m Thankful for Modern Technology

It has been an amazing journey of personal and business growth for me these last few years.

I remember in 3rd grade (a million years ago!), reading a short story of the future by Isaac Asimov – unfortunately I can’t remember the title – in which there were children sitting at the kitchen table in front of a computer monitor taking school lessons.

I remember so clearly looking at that picture and thinking I hope I live long enough to see that come to be. You have to realize that at that time IBM’s computers filled entire rooms, there were no cell phones, no answering machines, no video games, color TV was just emerging, and central air conditioning was a modern convenience, so the concept of the story seemed so, so far away….

What Would Don Draper Do with Social Media?

Social Media veterans or newbies…learn from #1 TV SOB in 1960’s marketing – Don Draper. Nobody liked him but he knew what the hell he was doing. (Think Steve Jobs.)
