Earlier this week, Albert Maruggi asked for my comments on the reported decrease in Facebook users and the increase in corporate Facebook stores.
As always w/ Albert, it was an enjoyable conversation that he included as part of his ongoing Marketing Edge podcast.

This is the third in the monthly coffee review series at the First Crack Podcast.
This month, I’m reviewing Miguel Moreno Leiva – El Filo as roasted by 49th Parallel Roasters.
It’s a very subtle and floral cup with powerful aroma off the grind. Andrew described it to me as, “technically good.” I quite agree. It’s a perfect example of a good cup of coffee.
As always, special thanks to Andrew Kopplin at Kopplin’s Coffee for putting this Cup of Excellence on my table and resetting my coffee judgement scale.

Doing some testing today and I felt bad for not posting anything in nearly a week.
I’ve been building. Steady. Til midnight or 2am for the past week.
And it’s coming together real nicely, so I’m trying to keep up the momentum up through this coming week.
Until I get back to a more frequent posting schedule…
Here’s the raw audio from an hour-long phone conversation I had with a Stanford Grad student. She’s conducting a study on how people use things like Twitter, Flickr, and the like.

Cayenne Chris’s Christmas 2006 Tekdiff episode [mp3] finally came up on my shuffled ‘Unlistened Podcast’ this afternoon. It’s one of the best Tekdiff episodes (23 4-star or great episodes in my library), from the Tiny Tree’s First Christmas to bizarre Holiday traditions in unnamed Eastern European villages.
Belated Yuletide Thanks Chris.
