And the downside of Social Media . . .

How fast everyone finds out about typos like this. “Freshly Ground Black People” in the Australian Cookbook the Pasta Bible.

I must thank Twitter and the Huffington Post for its haste in spreading the word. Where did you first see it?

More Awesome Kitty Cat YouTube Videos

This one I found at Mashable, in their post proving (in the same fashion in which Norm MacDonald showed that Germans love David Hasselhoff), Cats love the iPad.

I share this because cats being silly should make everyone’s day better. Thanks Mashable.

Top Google Pranks This April Fools 2010

1. Google Changes It’s Name to Topeka

In response to the City of Topeka’s announcement that it is changing its name to Google for the month of April, Google has in return decided to change it’s name to Topeka. Not quite sure this is true? Just Topeka it.

2. Where Am I? Pluto.

Smartphone users that log on to Google Maps and type “Where am I?” into the search bar might be surprised to find that they are further away from their intended location than they thought. Google Maps users will find that instead of receiving the usual latitude and longitude coordinates, they are receiving answers like “Neptune,” “Apollo 17 landing site,” and “Mordor, Middle Earth.”

3. Your World Now in 3D

When using the Street View on Google Maps, users are given the option to view their location in 3D. Unfortunately for me, I forgot my 3D glasses at home today and haven’t been able to test this out for myself, but having spoken to a reliable source, I know that this works.  Just zoom to street level, click on the orange icon wearing the red/ blue glasses and watch as your world becomes 3D.

Just Say No – To Sexting

The media’s new favorite word? Sexting. Over the weekend, I saw 5 news stories that had something to do with the general message ‘Sexting is Bad.’

Whether you do or you don’t agree; this “Give it a Ponder” video is worth checking out.

Back to School—Part Deux

Adam Here–Class of 96!

I guess I was so good the first time a sequel was bound to happen. I envisioned my return as more The Godfather: Part II, rather than Dumb and Dumberer or Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds In Paradise….and I think it was a success.

I was invited back to my alma mater, Bridgewater State College, to speak to a PR/Marketing Class about my education at BSC and how it prepared me for the “real world”. I shared my BSC Thirsty Thursday night bar routine, Friday night hang-out bar, and Saturday party spots (I kid, I kid… the library was plenty of fun for me!) onto my wild path to Strategis.

I was really happy to hear that many of the students were already using Twitter, (shoutout to @DavidAPacheco, @CourtneyCormier, @PRSSA_bridgew and @Ginamcummings. Some students were using LinkedIn, a couple had their own blogs and of course every single one had a Facebook page.

We talked a lot about social media and how it’s affecting Marketing/PR and building relationships and of course questions like:

Q: What did my resume look like after I graduated?

A. Yes I did a couple internships but still needed to fill a lot of real estate. Thank goodness for 14PT Gil Sans.

Q: What is a typical day like at Strategis?

A. I have my “to do” list and if I can check off one thing it is a great day. Everyday is unpredictable and that’s why it’s fun.

Overall it was a great discussion. You may think of college students are all about beer pong, ultimate frisbee, or any other college cliche — the future marketing minds may come up with the next Apple campaign…so you may be wondering why I am convinced my sequel was a success?

They were taking notes!

WOW. Maybe I’ll be invited back to complete the trilogy: Back to School: The Saga Continues or maybe they were writing their next blog post… hey, I’ll take either one as a compliment.

Thanks again!! Class Dismissed.
