We're observing Slog silence from now until 11 a.m. while we have an editorial meeting, but look—we made an entire paper's worth of stuff for you! Here's what Bill Hitchert has to say.
Welcome to my Personal Digital Network (PDN). Nothing's more energizing than exchanging ideas with others digitally... and in print, too, if for some reason you're not reading this online (go paperless and become part of the climate solution!). I'm Bill Hitchert, chief visionary officer of the fully digital, brand-based social media marketing and personal-branding network BH Ideas. Success and prosperity coaching for the purpose of self-betterment and dream realization: That's #BHideas! (These hashtags should auto-hyperlink on your tablet! If they don't, copy-paste them into your browser and select "ENTER.") Let's get into this: excited. #publicEditor #theStrangerBlog #kindleFire
#goingGreen? Definitely. @JONATHANGOLOB is talking climate change. Takeaways here about noninhibited coal movement and natural gas extraction. Offset credit for promoting your personal brand as a concerned bike-riding environmentalist, GOLOB! Sounds like you're enjoying your personal carbon-reduction moment to the fullest. Yeah, it's big, but is it big enough? Not unless we #takeAction. Is it a truly global movement? Not until we bring some truly #globalSolutions to the table. What can you bring to the table? Hoping to see users start glocalizing: Farmers markets might be key here. "Climate change is real, it's happening, and it could destroy us all"—energizing stuff, GOLOB! Really hitting the Day After Tomorrow notes that motivate readers to tweet positive—let's get this thing trending. #crisis #crisisAverted? #movingForward #cleanCoal #jakeGyllenhaal
Wow-moment: @JENGRAVES is "getting visual" in a review of an ancient painting with a bunch of chimps in it: really floored by the amazing render. Wow! Look at all those swimming chimps. Reminds me of hot yoga somehow. Scroll down to the painting and check it out yourself, or type the keytag "#chimpGraves" into your search. Bringing it back to the global-warming issues: rising sea levels from melting ice caps? Let's try to enact a sea change to save these chimps from having to swim for their lives. Namaste, Jen. #chimps #risingTides #demonChimps #solutions
Briefly touching on this amazing vegetarian-friendly, omnivore-friendly, vegan-friendly, food- positive food review of the Veggie Grill. Chowing down? I'm there! Let's bring fast food up to speed with the slow food movement. #bajaFiestaSalad #guacTalk
Finally, @DANSAVAGE addressing some concerns regarding non-normative adult relationships between Burning Man attendees. It's key to keep an open mind: I'm keeping an open mind about it. I do know some folks who've been to the Burning Man. Sounds like a blast, but not really my thing.
