#Quote: “Claim your experience. Don’t let it claim you…” #Jarvis, Debra vía #TEDx

Relevant Excerpt:

“…

Many years ago, I had a patient, just a wonderful young man who was loved by the staff, and so it was something of a shock to us to realize that he had no friends. He lived by himself, he would come in for chemotherapy by himself, he would receive his treatment, and then he’d walk home alone. And I even asked him. I said, “Hey, how come you never bring a friend with you?” And he said, “I don’t really have any friends.” But he had tons of friends on the infusion floor. We all loved him, and people were going in and out of his room all the time. So at his last chemo, we sang him the song and we put the crown on his head and we blew the bubbles, and then I asked him, I said, “So what are you going to do now?” And he answered, “Make friends.” And he did. He started volunteering and he made friends there, and he began going to a church and he made friends there, and at Christmas he invited my husband and me to a party in his apartment, and the place was filled with his friends. Claim your experience. Don’t let it claim you. He decided that the meaning of his experience was to know the joy of friendship, and then learn to make friends.

Okidoki; no posts via @WordPressDotCom for a WHOLE week!… #WhatGives?

@Klout!

Been to The TimeLine lately? (as in the wee hours of THIS morning?)

It’s all there, so to better understand my mind’s perpetual #ScavengerHunt modality, skim here, scan pics here and there, AND then take a look at your OWN Klout Score!

Why? Appears to be a new Job Requirement, that’s why!

(En Castellano, les contare e interpretare pronto!)

Au Revoir!

So it all began as an app, downloaded a while back, which along with @PInterest and @GooglePlus, a dreaded #Homework item, become hath….

… Add a dreadfully unseasonal season, a romantically laden day, and voila! Here’s me synapses attempting to learn a brand new nomenclature of “Toasters”, “Inkwells” and “1977”‘s – in lieu of 60+ steps to achieve same in my desktops prehistorical copy of PS 6.0!

One word?

Amazing!

Anyway, here is the Tweet, pls follow if u r already an @Instagram user; or check it out, if your phone so allows!

Since I am bouncing around Europe this week, (come say hi at #tsc12 if you can), now is a good time to republish this list from a few months ago. It is still as relevant today as it was then:

1. “Social” is something you are, not something you doIf your company culture doesn’t focus on building relationships with your customers, then chances are that you won’t use social media to do it either. The “media” doesn’t dictate how social a company is or isn’t. It simply enhances its ability to be a social business – if in fact it is – or illustrates the extent to which it isn’t.

2. You cannot effectively outsource customer relationships to an agency. Research and intelligence, sure: that can be outsourced. Creative? That too. Implementing technologies and helping you with strategy? You bet. Marketing, PR and advertising?…

DayView: #TimeLineTuesdays – or The What For Of Hashtagging #3rdWinter/Day42

7 Feb

So yesterday we did post a few from @LinkedIN that were filed under #JobsMonday… And today? Well, after ‘FaceWallin’ (one more!) #SenseiSaturdays (‘Zuck’s’ #Spideys’ diligently clustering atop all them Daily Encouragements! Keyword? #Ikeda!)…

… And THAT, if anyone is reading, or like I say to myself, for them cyber archaeologists (or Dr. Harroways at the other end of the Chasm?) is what my proclivity towards hashtags is all about!

Ever heard about them “Trending Topics”? Millenials LOVE them! Hilariously fresh! (and if you watch @HLNTV, or the other #TW outlets, a MUST for modern media?)

Whoa! @Verizon & #RedBox?… thanks Jen!

anyway, as usual, full of tangentials, narrowcasting from an iPhone, here’s my current one, as viewed from a Safari! (Browser, that is!)

Cheers! (Castellano/Spanglish #AudioCaption, soon to follow!)
