Horribly behind…

October 13, 2009

Ever miss an airplane departure?  How about a bus?  Or maybe just a ride home?  It’s not a good feeling.  And it’s the one I have right now.  Being in the technology business for as long as I have, you think I’d learn how to accommodate constant motion.  But nooooo.  I get distracted by the change in weather, the change in seasons, or the annual rush of holiday shopping.  Sometimes I just get busy with working and living.  Apparently I didn’t see the technology Mack truck heading towards me.  One distracted minute you think you’re up on what’s happening and the next, WHAM!  You’re left standing at the jetway, the bus stop, or on the sidewalk with a sinking feeling in the bottom of your stomach that you’ve been left… behind.

The first post I made here is an account of where I am with my business relative to the social media revolution.  I’m just now getting a feel for what’s been going on (apparently while I slept).  A friend of mine sent me a link today to a YouTube video that is basically mind-boggling.  Here’s an example of social media in action – telling us about social media (is that redundant?).

Anyway, sit back and prepare to have your mind blown for 4½ minutes.  Also be ready with your pause and rewind buttons; the statistics come at you so fast, that if you’re like me you’ll need to replay them a few times.

First, enjoy…  and the newer addition  (if an ad appears on the lower half, hit the X in the corner of it).

Second, let me know what you think.

P.S. – since I posted this I have found additional relevant info; please check back as I will add more here as I discover it; below I have listed some of it…
