What’s in a Name (and a Price)

Shockproofing CISSPI’ve changed the subtitle of my Kindle eBook on using social media safely to better communicate the subject matter. I’ve also lowered the price point to $0.99. The book sold reasonably well during the week-long reduce price promotion as a Kindle Countdown book, so I’ve reduced the price.

Thank you to my reviewers for providing their impressions of the book. Authoring and self publishing has been an interesting experience. I found my conversations with Guy Kawasaki and his APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur to be especially helpful.

Nick Francesco is doing well with his Your Guru Guide submissions. I recommend checking them out if you’re interested in Chromebooks or how to best leverage Google Docs.

Updated Shock-proofing your Use of Social Media Presentation

I’ve updated my Shock-proofing your Use of Social Media presentation for the Fall 2014 New Student Orientation program at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I’ve changed the passphrase example, added a new cartoon, and generally worked to make the presentation more culturally relevant to 18 to 20 year olds.

Let me know what you think of it!

A Techcomm Bestiary, Spectrum 2014

I thought this came together pretty well and I had a great time presenting my first revision of A Techcomm Bestiary at STC Rochester’s Spectrum 2014. I may make a couple of slide changes before the STC Summit, but this is the meat of the presentation.

Putting this talk together was quite the experience, as I wandered through online pix from medieval bestiaries, reviewed techcomm roles, and read a little about animal symbolism.
