Severe weather season roars back to Charleston today. I’m in “hunker down” mode here, monitoring all sorts of varying weather information. Here’s how to keep up: On Twitter, I’ll live-tweet the storm event at @chswx. If you just want warnings and forecasts, I recommend @CharlestonWX. Also see @weatherwatches for advance notice of potential watches. Don’t […]
It seems oddly fitting that a few local bloggers, tweeters, and folks from local media outlets got together at Juanita Greenberg’s downtown, sat outside, and talked about — what else? — hashtags. These aren’t your ordinary hashtags, though — these tags are designed to standardize news tweeting in Charleston. This way, we can keep things […]
News 2’s Nate Stewart stopped by my office today to chat about phishing scams on Twitter and other sites, and explains how they work so you can better protect yourself online — not just on Twitter, but on any site. Here’s the report.
So after much impatience, sarcasm, and self-doubt, I finally got the updated Facebook look sometime while I was driving home from work yesterday. And you know, after all that, I’m somewhat underwhelmed.
We live in an era where a student newspaper can break news and within minutes have it picked up by several major media outlets. It shouldn’t, but it still blows my mind how quickly the media has shifted and the playing field has been leveled.

Guys, I’m starting to feel a little worried about my geek/early adopter cred: My Facebook homepage is still kickin’ it 2008-style, in oldschool static mode. It seems as if this rollout is going REALLY SLOWLY — a comment in this FriendFeed thread seems to suggest that Zuckerberg is going on Oprah to talk about Facebook. […]
I’m part of a group helping to launch Social Media Club in the Charleston area. We meet at aloft North Charleston (aloft’s Brightkite stream). aloft (lack of capitalization is intentional) seems to be a very sweet hotel and is impossible to miss at night. The lobby area, where we conduct our meetings, is definitely progressive, […]
I’d say the positioning of this van next to the Blingmobile was a pretty accurate omen for at least the first half of Monday. Seriously, who does this? And what does it say for my build that I was able to get in the car without the door touching the van? Common sense is extremely […]
So the conventional wisdom is not to talk about a medium using the medium that is being discussed; i.e. you’re not supposed to tweet about Twitter, you’re not supposed to blog about blogging…whatever. These people who tell you this are the same people who tell you that auto DMs on Twitter are a good thing. […]
