“Guest Posting for SEO is Done”

Matt Cutts, the head of Google’s webspam team shook the internet on January 20th when he said that he’d “expect Google’s webspam team to take a pretty dim view of guest blogging going forward.” (you can see the post on his personal blog here) If you are posting articles and guest posts as a way […]

Is this the year of the nerdy scientist?

2013 is over and in the books. 2014 has just begun and is full of opportunities. I’m not one to make New Year Resolutions. Earlier in life I did but when I looked back I found that most of the resolutions I made bored me so I wouldn’t stick with them. Now, instead I make […]

In the spirit of Christmas, here’s how the story of the Nativity might be told today through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, Google Maps, GMail, Foursquare, Amazon… My favorite part is where they hit the “Avoid Romans” button on Google Maps.
