Success came knocking at my door the other day. I applied for an internship at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and what do you know, they accepted me! I'll be working as a Registration intern, dealing with accessioning items, inventory, packaging and shipping of art as well as works on loan. I'm very excited, especially because I was notified today that they are awarding me a stipend. This will help greatly as I will be traveling from Terre Haute to Indy twice a week to complete this… Continue

I am on Twitter as IndyTheatre. I no longer have time to specially submit each of my theatre reviews to SI for consideration for the SI main page, but I hope people will continue to either follow my theatre reviews blog via the feed at the left of my SI page or directly at www.IndyTheatreHabit.com. I see and write about one or more live theatre shows per weekend.
The poor pig is not having its day...now with the swine flu - it is really getting a bad rep..I happen to have fondness for this creature and to hear that Egypt is going to slaughter some 300,000 pigs and it was not even reported that the virus could be spread to humans by eating pork is quite saddening for me. Pigs also happen to be clean creatures and have the best noses for truffles. Is this the end of bacon, one of my fav foods? Are we going to avoid pork products..I was at the grocery… Continue
As an ultralight pilot, I was very excited that my trip to Florida coincided with the Sun n Fun Airshow - noted as being one of the biggest in the country and so I was not going to let this oppotunity slip by. I am greatly rewarded with the experience.
I took alot of video shots that day and this is one of those performances that is amazing! It's performed by the Golden Knights - The US Army Parachute Team.
I've been predicting for some time now that the distribution of television shows over the airwaves will be a thing of the past sooner than later. It will be replaced by Internet (or whatever the Internet will be called at this time) distribution. It just makes sense. There's only so much programming that can travel over the airwaves in any given city and it is bound by city limits.
On the other hand, the Internet can deliver virtually unlimited programming to unlimited locations. And… Continue

Wow! There sure seems to be a lot of attention on the Swine Flu this week huh? It's a real shame that people all over the world are being affected by this thing and I hate that some are even dying. But this whole deal got me thinking about my life and where I put my trust. Is my trust in hand sanitizer? Is my trust in staying out of public places or refusing to shake hands? Or is my trust in the Lord Jesus Christ? I want to believe that Jesus is in control over every part of my life...even if I… Continue

Wanted to let everyone know about the race weekend charity event some Smoosiers are participating in. It's the Carb Day for a Cause, where local celebrities will face off to see who can eat the most pancakes on May 23,10 a.m. to 12 p.m., the day after the Indy 500 Carb Day. All proceeds will go to St. Vincent de Paul food pantry locally. Check out the blog--contestants just started blogging about their training process to… Continue
Thursday April 24 was a great day in Noblesville. It was so awesome to see: the neighbors watching, the volunteers full of energy and enthusiasm pounding nails and raising walls, and one beyond excited young mother and her daughter realizing their dream really was coming true! And May 7th is going to be another great and historic day on that same street in Noblesville! That's the date for the 1st ever Women Build Habitat for Humanity Hamilton Cty. Ladies, if you have not registered please do -… Continue
Much is being made of a recent Nielsen survey which found that 60% of new Twitter users do not return after 30 days. The report provides evidence that the resulting 40% retention rate will limit growth, to no more than 10% of internet users. While this is a graphically compelling argument, Nielsen–like so many Twitter critics–completely misses the point.
Nielsen uses a common false dichotomy by comparing Twitter to… Continue
Coming up this May 23rd I (Daniel Herndon) will be participating in a Celebrity Pancake eating contest called Carb Day for a Cause. Although I am not a celebrity per se, I once made my living in a Rock Band and I work with companies all over the country doing experiential marketing and events. Ultimately what it came down to is my eating skills and a love for pancakes and the needy. Often times… Continue
In my family of siblings and half siblings, mothers, step-mothers, and mothers-in-law, I estimate that during the collective thirty-plus years of celebrating Mother's Day we've come up with nearly 200 gift ideas. Undoubtedly, there have been some repeats. This is the time when my siblings and I begin brainstorming, and each year it gets harder to come up with something that feels fresh or useful or at least not completely lame. It is time to take things to the next level.
The above is in reference to an article in Treehugger online magazine. I am quite aware of the economic situations of many of my fellow Hoosiers with experience in the construction field. Also quite frankly I like Solar Panels and Solar Technology. Just seems pretty weird we are so willing to drill for oil and search for oil, but we have a hard time accepting that we need to use the Solar… Continue
On May 16, TechPoint will award the "Innovation of the Year" to one of eight Finalists in the 2009 Mira Awards. On a more personal level, my "Innovation of the Year" is Facebook. Sure, I'm a little bit late to the party, but Facebook has truly had a significant impact on my daily life. I can't think of any other technology that has been this pervasive for me since e-mail. A close second for me personally is AT&T Uverse.
The Press in the United States let us down during the last administration by not asking the tough questions and relentlessly digging in on what matters to the American people. The press has continued this 'enchantment' with Barack Obama.
That Obama is hand-picking reporters to ask questions, and most of the questions are softballs is a disservice of the Fourth Estate. We need tough, seasoned and relentless journalists more than ever in this country.
I love seeing our clients do creative things using social media. I noticed Eventful Florals doing something interesting recently that I thought was a great idea. They are offering a 10% discount to anyone who becomes a fan of Eventful Florals on Facebook. This is great because their customers feel great about getting a special… Continue
You often see, in small print, “no substitutions” on the menu at many restaurants. A similar experience to that is when you hire an employee. Most people have specific strengths, and of course, some weaknesses – a pre-determined meal with no ala carte options. You rarely can find someone who can do everything you want, so you settle for who comes closest to your needs. But what if you could have ala cart?
You can package exactly what you need for your administrative help by hiring a… Continue

Louder is better, right? How else can you get your message through in this fast pace, media overloaded society? On the Internet, louder does not translate to success. What does translate is relevant information presented in an authentic manner that makes sense to the audience. Ok, so what does that really mean?
First of all, relevant information means having value for the audience. It is crucial to consider the perspective of those seeking the information. To be relevant, you need to… Continue
