try being anti-social and pick up the phone


Brian Patrick CorkI’m using a social networking platform to poke fun at social media. the best part about the exercise is that no one cares. however, I’ll be using the results of this exercise as research for a blog post. but, please just ignore it.

maybe we should consider just being a bit anti-social and pick up the phone and make a real connection.

The Onion’s Pitch-Perfect Parody of Social Media ‘Gurus’ – 

“Using your brains to think of an idea and your skills to implement it? That’s the old model.”The Onion is not the first to take a dim view of social-media marketing, but it is the funniest. In …

Networking: Rule 33


There are essentially two separate kinds of networking.  One is social, and, the other is business.

The focus of this particular Blog entry is business networking.

There is always the temptation to introduce people and think you are doing them both a favor. But, often, you are not.  Starbucks is always congested with people wondering why they are meeting the person they are sitting with.

For the purpose of business and commerce, the purpose of introductions is to connect two or more people that can clearly advance the options and abilities of the other(s).  Or, you are asking one person to help another in a very specific way.  Then, as the connector, you now have an express obligation to follow up and make sure both parties did what you expected of them.

As a direct result, a clearly stated agenda and objective is identified and met.  All parties should benefit and reciprocate equitably.

Lets be art of the solution, and not the problem.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
