Bio update @twitter

I’ve had “update Don Holloway on all social media” on my to-do list for months.  It’s been in the perpetual task list noise floor.  Too important to delete, not urgent enough to actually do.   I’ve realized that I needed to break that down into tasks that I can actually do.  <duh> Twitter is an odd […]

Ashley Hendrix–Artist, Educator

I had the joy of speaking with Ashley Hendrix today.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing both her and her work for quite some time.  I’ll be attending her commencement exhibit in a few weeks as she is granted her BFA.  She’ll be spending next year finishing her Masters in Education.  There is no doubt […]

How to Build Social Capital– ”Klout Matters” Review

I ran across Terry Brock through a mutual friend on Facebook of all places.  I noticed that we’ve both worked in the telecom / technology industry and both shared an interest in social technologies.  I had done graduated studies as part of the seminal “Birds of a Feather” group at Lehigh.  I saw that Terry […]

Waking the Beast Without a Way to Control It

I was struck today by two seemingly unrelated stories today.  The first was an observation that Dropbox had been "incredibly tonedeaf" in adding Condaleeza Rice to their board given the NSA concerns.  The second story was about LinkedIn showing you open jobs at your own company.  There was some serious public blowback against Dropbox, such […]

A Systems Approach to Social Customer Interactions

I worked on the Birds of a Feather project at Lehigh University with some really bright folks.  I got involved with the project at the request of Verizon, who wanted to better understand some of the business value that social networking technologies could deliver.  One of the projects that I worked on was to create […]

A mentor’s advice regarding private and public business

As I’ve mentioned before, I have been blessed to have a couple of amazing mentors over the course of my life.  One of the hardest things to describe is how powerful advice can be, particularly early on. Ed Johnson was one of the driving forces behind creating the 401(k) industries. He has a wealth of […]

Daily Worth – An interesting approach to financial IQ

I recently ran across Daily Worth, which has created a financial community for women.  The idea is to provide women with a useful resource to help them understand how to build wealth.  It was designed by and is intended  for bright and ambitious working women.    While women play an increasingly important role in making […]

My Top 16 Android Business Apps for the Road

As a sales executive in the technology industry, I spend a fair amount of time out on the road.    I have been pretty active in the mobile application space, so people often ask me what apps that I have on my phone.  Here are the apps on my home page right now. While I have […]

Privacy and Social Capital

There was a front page article in the New York Times titled “How Privacy Vanishes Online, a Bit at a Time”.  The story covers some of the risks that are being created as people are increasingly sharing information about themselves online.  I have done some research with Cathy Ridings at Lehigh University studying Facebook profiles, […]

Verizon Wireless and Skype Got It Done!

Verizon Wireless and Skype announced at Mobile World Congress that they would be teaming together to offer Skype on many Verizon Wireless smart phones. I use both Verizon Wireless and Skype.  Verizon Wireless has a very reliable network.  Skype is a great application. Starting in March, I will be able to run Skype on my […]
