Connect

20121128-140302.jpg

Connect with me on any or all of these social networks!

Sometimes there’s an overlap of content, but sometimes you’ll find hidden gems on one of the networks. Follow the links, sign up, and if I’m not already, and add me in. If you run into any trouble, let me know on this post here.

If I’m already a connection, but we’ve never interacted on the site before, shoot me a quick message letting me know who you are and what you’re about Also, I urge anyone else who wants to expand their networks to post a link to their profile in the comments section.

My Blog – Backwards Time Machine

This is where I post longer articles, dealing with my primary passions: Future Problem Solving, Innovation, Future Trends, Creativity, Leadership, and Giftedness.

LinkedIn

My professional-ish way to present myself to future collaborators, look for jobs, and connect with recruiters, people I’d want to work with someday, and newcomers to the scene that I see potential in.

Facebook

The classic, instigator of all this social networking nonsense. Not the first, but the biggest impact, by far. I don’t use it very often, but love some of the features they have, especially the tight, seamless integration it has with most of the other sites. Google could take some notes on that aspect, but I still don’t really use the site.

Twitter

I’m not going to explain twitter or why I have an account. Sometimes. I’m a sheep just like everyone else (I don’t really like Twitter, honestly). But hey, I’m on there, so follow me!

Tumblr

I do re-post my blog’s articles, but I also re-post anything I find interesting.

A great resource is to see only other people’s content I that I enjoyed, by checking out my “liked” page.

Instagram

Photos I post. There is also a link within to see the photos from other people I liked.

YouTube

I don’t make very many videos, but on this profile you’ll be able to see videos I’ve liked or favorited. A lot of music, futurist stuff, and funny stuff (Ricky Gervais, Louis CK, Arrested Development, and The Simpsons).

StumbleUpon

This site I very highly recommend signing up for, and taking for a test run. It’s called a “discovery engine:”

As you initially set up your profile, you select from a long list of topics that interest you. Then, you just hit the “stumble” button, and a random web page pops up, based on what they think you’ll like. If you do like, you give it a “thumbs up.” If you don’t, a “thumbs down.”

Over time, it learns from this and the sites are more consistently enjoyable. It’s also possible to stumble everything, or a specific interest. Think Pandora, but for the entire Internet.

Pinterest

I mostly just play around on there, but I’ve found some awesome photos there, as well.

Pearltrees


A visual way of bookmarking great content around the web. You can also discover similar content and users, based on what you have in your pearls. It’s pretty cool.

Delicious

A more traditional way of bookmarking sites you enjoy.

Klout

Not a huge fan, Klout is supposed to measure your social influence around the web. I find it turns more into an unhealthy obsession with how you rank on the Internet. How rank on the Internet is relevant in any way has yet to be discovered…

Step One: Collaboration

Let’s get our heads a little closer together, so that we actually can take the world from the greedy, selfish, and arrogant, and put it in the hands of the adaptive, optimistic, and brilliant minds of future generations.

    1. Hey, thanks for comment!!

      We’re all different, and need each other to be successful.

      It’s my purpose to have gigantic, radical ideas; to create a vision of what’s possible. If nothing else, to get people to consider alternate vantage points.

      It’s other people’s role to challenge my big idea, which allows me to refine and improve it.

      A world filled with only “me” would spend all day dreaming and never accomplish anything. A world of other types may never progress and evolve, not being able to consider radical options.

      Nice to meet you!

      I took the other half your message as to post more frequently. Which I can definitely do. Even if it doesn’t follow a theme, blogs are more about a representation of a person’s thoughts at that moment.

    2. And it does seem for the number of replies I get and followers, it doesn’t seem right.

      I don’t have a pro website and it’s not optimized, but if the content is valuable a lot of that should happen organically?

      Also, do prefer video or written words? Mix of the 2.
