Who, What, When, Where, and Why?

A pretty major ordeal knocked me off my game for a minute, but I’m back now. Just barely, but I am back. Leggo.1) Who decided that the dime would be worth more than the nickel? If I had more time on my hands, I’d craft an argument about how this makes no sense and confuses little kids all across the nation trying to learn about money for the first time and understand why the bigger coin is worth half as much as the smaller one.

Posterous: My New Social Media Addiction

The initial buzz about Posterous didn't do much to inspire me to try it. I didn't have time for the blogs and other social media tools that I was using, why would I try a mini-blogging platform whose most important feature seemed to be blog via email capability. I was trying to find ways to use email less often not more often. I figured Posterous just wasn't a tool I'd use. Yet I found myself drawn back to Posterous, over and over again. Each time, it was the blog via email functionality that I just couldn't wrap my head around. ...more

Microblogging: What's Tumblr and How Can It Help Me?

Somewhere between traditional blogging and Twitter there lies a sort of half-blog option. If your primary blog is your heavyweight and Twitter is your featherweight, then sites like Tumblr, Posterous, and TypePad Micro would have to be your lightweights.
