Six Word Resume Meme (from WWDS)

So over at "What Would Dad Say", GL Hoffman (author of Dig Your Job: Keep it or Find a New One) has asked readers to post their six-word resumes. By 1 January 2009.

With no time to waste, here's mine:

Connecting social media and user assistance. (I think it could have more "punch"...I'll have to work on that.)

(My personal six-word meme is Playing the hand I was dealt.)

What are your six-word memes?

Get ready for First Night Boston!

We try to get to Boston's First Night every year, at least for a couple of hours. So every year, I go to their website to see what's new...

And what's new is that First Night has gone social :-) They have a blog (which has actually been around since December 2006) and they're using Twitter, too.

(I don't remember seeing the blog in previous years, but the website has undergone a complete update. It's much nicer than what I remember and much better organized. My only complaint is that you have to use Back from the blog to return to the main site. And be sure to click First Night 2009 in the upper left to get to this year's information.)

If you're going to be in the Boston area for New Year's, check out their program guide, build an itinerary (you have to type your email address to continue), and the rest of their site.

And if you're going to First Night, let me know! Maybe we can meet up somewhere :-)

New Tribes ebook is now available

Seth Godin's Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us was released in October, but way before that, he created a Ning network called Triiibes[1], where those interested in the concept could meet and talk and even work together.

The Q&A is the second project that the tribe worked on and I'm happy to say that I was part of it. Thanks to Megan Elizabeth Morris, who may have gone without sleep that weekend but made sure we finished by deadline, and to the other 150+ people who donated their time and efforts. Even though most of my stuff was at the end (editing), it was great working with everyone. It's a wonderful feeling when a project like this comes together.

Seth announced the ebook's release this morning on his blog.

[1] The online group is Triiibes because a) Seth found that tribes.com was already taken and b) it takes a minimum of three people to make a tribe.

Have you used Alltop?

Guy Kawasaki (website and blog) formally announced Alltop in March 2008. Alltop is a "news aggregation site"...that is, it provides links to top stories for a number of popular topics. The main page contains the topic links (about 150...there were 40 when it started) and each link contains specific links for each topic organized by source.

So if you're looking for up-to-date information that isn't pushed to your system (ala RSS feeds) but is there when you need it, visit Alltop today. Set a timer or you'll be there for awhile ;-).
