Facebook, RSS, and You
First, regarding Facebook, you may have noticed that I generate share the links to Beyond the Rhetoric blog posts through my personal profile. This has been helpful in generating some interest, but I’m thinking it would make more sense to syndicate the content through the Beyond the Rhetoric Facebook page instead.
So, if you are already my Facebook friend, would you kindly “like” the Beyond the Rhetoric Facebook page as well? I’m trying out an app on Facebook (recommended to me by Ian Lee) that should pull the RSS automatically. We’ll see how that goes.
Writing for Developers
A good deal of my freelance writing business has to do with gadget blogging and writing about technology. I’ve been working with Mobile Magazine for a number of years and now the same guy behind the site has launched a sister site for mobile app developers.
The newly launched Mobile Developer Magazine discusses everything from iOS to Android and while I’m not a dev, I have started contributing a few articles to the site too. Feel free to check it out at your leisure.
Dot Com Pho in Vancouver
For those of you who don’t know, Dot Com Pho is a weekly gathering of folks to discuss everything from technology to Internet marketing to local news and events. In past years, it has largely been organized by John Chow, but he has since moved to Bellevue, Washington.
We want to keep the tradition alive in Vancouver and, after a small hiccup, it seems that we are doing just fine again. We met on Saturday and there were about ten people in attendance. You can watch the video at DotComPho.com. If you’d like to attend, keep an eye on the DotComPho Twitter account for updates. We usually meet on Saturdays for lunch.
Top Thinkers of September
Last and certainly not least, I’d like to recognize the top thinkers of last month. These are the kind folks who contribute comments to this blog, helping to further the conversation and engage others in the discussion. Remember that this blog is not meant to be a soapbox purely for my thoughts; we need your input too!
