If you’re not in awe, you’re not paying attention.

Coverage

In meta-media news, my grammar of social media post from last week got picked up today by the Design Observer and then by Bruce Nussbaum in Business Week. All of which has led to a few thousand new visitors and being featured as one of WordPress’ fastest growing blogs.

So if you’re new here, hi. Thanks for coming. I hope you stick around.

The lesson here? At this particular cultural moment, writing about Obama, Clinton, and Twitter is a hot combination to get some press. Now if only I could figure out a way to get Lindsay Lohan, Angelina Jolie, sub-prime mortgages, and the Lost season finale in there…

    Nice dude. Glad to see the climb. It’s deserved.

    And you’re writing in Canadian dollars, so that makes that currency worth that much more these days.

    Next stop, Oprah.
