Social Conference

February 24, 2010

This week, I have been at a social media conference put on by Ragan Communications and Coca-Cola in Atlanta. The keynote speaker last night was David Pogue who is the technology writer for the New York Times. For those of you that think technology and social media is boring, check David Pogue out in this video:

He performed that and many other songs for us as a finally to his brilliant speech about social media. My cheeks were ACHING from laughing so hard during his talk. In a word, it was awesome!

Also, during his speech, he shared hilarious excerpts from his book The World According to Twitter.

I had heard about this book before but dismissed it because, after all, what else is there to know about Twitter? Well, I was wrong! David Pogue shared hilarious stories about the wit of his Twitter followers and I promptly ordered the book from Amazon. I will share my thoughts once it arrives!

If you guys check out David Pogue or The World According to Twitter, let me know. I would LOVE to chat about ti with you. I think it goes without saying that I definitely think you should check it out!

Pretty in Plaid

February 21, 2010

I just finished reading the book Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster. Here is my cynopsis:

  1. You should definitely read it
  2. She made me laugh out loud so hard that others stared at me on the airplane.
  3. She loves pink, pretty clothing–i.e. we are twins.

Check out her this video of Jen talking about her book:

And you can also check out her books Bright Lights Big Ass (which gave me MUCH comfort when I moved to Chicago) and Bitter is the New Black (which is just hysterical). Check them out and let me know what you think!
