Ok, so far so good, 2 posts over 2 weeks for 2009. I hope to put up 5s posts this year. No promises, but I’ll do my best.
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.”
Earlier this month I shared the press release of the launch of Scribit™. Scribit changes the way businesses find and share great content, and makes it insanely easy to engage and convert new visitors on your website and social pages. In short, Scribit let’s businesses curate content in a way that is relevant to their core business and drives traffic back to their site. Unless you have been living under a rock this year then you have probably heard about the meteoric rise of Pinterest and the buzz word of the day ‘curation’. It’s been said that information wants to be free, it would seem that it also wants to be curated. So what does, this movement to crowd sourced content recommendations mean for, well, everything?

I am late in posting this (I actually started working on it in March) but on the heels of the scheduled iPhone 5 announcement I didn’t want to sit on it any longer. Of course this is another post about technology, as if you couldn’t tell what my number one passion is. Although I have been using technology heavily for over a decade now; 2011 has really been something else in terms of the total digitization of our real world activities. This year has without a doubt been the most digitally liberating of any year since smartphones first took hold in 2007.
Yesterday I made my first two deposits to my Chase Checking account using simply my iPhone and the Chase Banking app. I have been an early adopter of smart phones since the StarTac got the add on PDA accessory; yet, for all my experience even this functionality was a new and awesome experience. I find it difficult to understand incredulous position and resistance to smartphones that some maintain even though these devices afford a wide array of conveniences. I can honestly say that between ScoutMob, PayPal, Chase, Square and other apps, the phone has actually paid for itself and then some. Last Black Friday for example, we did all of our Christmas shopping on our iPhones while sitting at the Starbucks in our hotel lobby in New York. If time is money, the iPhone is making us rich.
I haven’t written in my blog recently and I haven’t ever written recommending an app before, but today I must make a suggestion. I have been telling a lot of friends about this application in person lately but I figure why not make it global this morning. I recommend that anyone with an iPhone and living in Atlanta download and start using the ScoutMob app.
