• Always these thoughts tumbl around my head…

    August 25, 2011 Jake DiMare

    I finally broke down and set up my very own tumblr. It has a very different feel from a blog or Twitter. In some ways it seems to be a half step between the two. But the interface and community aspect also make it unique. It feels like a good place for sharing things that…

  • Content Strategy Tip: Twitter list it.

    June 23, 2011 Jake DiMare

    It recently occurred to me that my unfiltered Twitter feed had become unmanageable. Even after a healthy culling there was simply too much content in there to stay on top off. A lot of the people removed were cut because they had little or nothing to share. Thus, a 25% reduction in the number of…

I’d like to write an…

    Sometimes it can be amusing to wonder how historical events might have unfolded differently if modern technology existed then. Since today is the day we observe the life of Martin Luther King Jr. let’s envision the effect on specific events during the Civil Rights Movement. In a very general way, the Civil Rights Movement would…

  • Modern Technology vs. Natural Disasters

    January 15, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Over the years I have occasionally been taken hostage at a cocktail party or backyard barbecue by some Luddite who, upon hearing what my career, goals, dreams and aspirations is centered around, will launch into a diatribe about the problems technology creates. Pretty close to the top of their list of concerns is the weakness…
