Updates to Lyro

I got a nice email from Leif Larson, the founder of Lyro, alerting me of some new features on their site. They're still in beta so the site has been making enhancements. Such as:

1. Card pockets. What's a card pocket? Funny you should ask. From their site:

A card pocket is like a pant pocket; it’s a place to store stuff that you want readily accessible. You can store other peoples’ business cards in your card pocket for easy retrieval. As you search for new contacts, your card pocket is the place to store the cards of individuals that interest you. You can access any business card in your pocket when you want to message that person, send that card to someone else or download the information into your contact management system (in vCard format).

2. Multiple cards. That's right, you can now create multiple virtual cards under one profile.

3. Vcards. Once you have a few favorites you can download them as Vcards. Can't forget about the Vcards.

I would add this as a suggestion: Figure out a way to make Lyro matter in SEO. Lyro doesn't turn up in the top 10 if I search my own name. Fix that and we'll be onto something. My suggestion is inbound links and working the algorithm to beat out LinkedIn. If there's anything Twitter did right, it's connect through the geekdom that is the internet and mobile. Integrate this with mobile and SIM cards and we're onto something.

Enough free advice, I'm off to Italy.

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

The biggest problem is, Trump is a well documented racist that tries to help legitimize FOX News and Alex Jones and every racist thing in between. What these media properties all know is that a) division works and b) some people of faith will believe anything. Trump pushed the Obama birther theory, he declined housing to African Americans and he employs employed a racist in former Breitbart employee Steve Bannon. I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."

Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.

Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…
