My latest post for work: A new theremin, a new way to learn, a new way to work together

My latest post about blogging for work: Blogging for business: you are no longer just you

The trick, even if you are no longer just you, is to figure out how to bring as much of yourself as you can.

Enjoy the recursion …

Writing, all over the place

leave a comment »

My guestblogging stint at BoingBoing ended a few weeks ago, but they’re allowing me to stay on and contribute regularly. So far I’ve showcased the silly, but I’ll also be covering Real Stuff. Much more to come, I hope. I’m also blogging occasionally for my job and will continue to do so as much as I can. Some examples: When Storytelling Isn’t Enough, a conference report, and When The Longtime Star Fades, a fictional case study that appeared in the September HBR. The latter includes what is, to my knowledge, the only reference to A Flock of Seagulls in the history of Harvard Business Review.

I hope to write more, everywhere, including here (thanks, Shayne, for the nudge to come back). Why? For a selfish reason, I think. As with exercise, another habit I haven’t developed as much as I should, I feel better on the days that I write than on the days that I don’t. So I’ll keep writing.

Return to Boing Boing: Week One

leave a comment »

My return stint at BoingBoing is now half over. Here’s what I wrote about this week:

Skit Ideas Not Even Good Enough for Saturday Night Live

Greatest Song of All Time of the Day: “Blue Monday,” New Order

Curating a TEDx (or, From Arrogance to Humility)

Too Much Darkness?

Mr. T: Gold Salesman. Supposedly Legitimate Financial TV Network

Yeah, I know, not a lot compared to last time. But I’ll have plenty more next week. In particular, I’m curious what BoingBoing readers will make of my day job.

I’ll be on BoingBoing

with one comment

BoingBoing logoI’m thrilled to report that I’ll be guestblogging on BoingBoing, one of my all-time favorite websites, during the first two weeks of March. In the guidelines, I’ve been told “We don’t allow nudity in the images, except under special circumstances.” Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. Internet peoples, you have been warned.

And now, part of a conversation, guaranteed repeated verbatim:

Lydia: What’s BoingBoing?

Jimmy: A site where interesting people write about interesting things.

Lydia: But you’re not interesting.

We’ll see. I have a month to prepare.
