Due to a debillitating cold, I missed NewKey's production of "Greater Tuna." It was the first show at the Indy Fringe Festival's
new space. Drat! Now I'm more-or-less healthy again, but due to lack of time, I still won't be able to see everything I want to see in what's left of 2008. Here is what I would like to see in the next month or so, if I had unlimited time, in alphabetical order by production… Continue

The city of Louisville was really quite lucky
They are the best town in all of Kentucky.
They have city pride, and a great big horse race
And a warm friendly feeling, like a hearty embrace.
Their mayor had a plan that he liked a lot
But some lawyers out west, oh no, they did NOT!
They tried to wreck Louisville's whole Christmas season
You don’t need to ask why, we all… Continue

From the desk of Ron Sukenick
Before starting out on a journey, it helps to think about how our destination point. You and I, remember, are going into the Beyond Networking zone, beyond traditional networking, that is, and on to Connection, and then further on, to Relationship. And we don't want to just get there - we want to relish the trip itself, every step of the way.
When I was studying under Dr. Robert Rohm to become a Certified Human Behavior Consultant™, one of the… Continue

The downside of having a 30-day blog-o-thon is having to post even if it's a national holiday. I decided to take it easy on myself and just share a link. CSS-tricks is one of my favorite new blogs
that I've discovered recently. It's a little more technical than a lot of the blogs that I typically read, and therefore it gives me a lot… Continue

On Thanksgiving, I will be surrounded by 40-50 family members. After we share our feast from appetizers to desserts, several of us will find a spot in front of the television to watch football and doze through commercials. Although I would like to see the Lions hand the Titans another loss (I am a true blue Colts fan!), surrendering to “turkey-daze” is part of the holiday, right? It is commonly believed that the tryptophan in turkey induces sleepiness; however, there is more to our holiday… Continue

I rec'd an email from my sister today that is simply a must-read for anyone with kids who occasionally feels like their not making the impact they once did. It's well written and certainly rings true. At this point, the author is unknown, but I'm trying to find attribution: The Invisible Parent

With the launch of the NING
platform it has been becoming easier to create niche social networks. As a user, you can join any network whether it is location or interest based. The membership could range from 500 to 20,000 depending on the network and the participants. I have been talking randomly about the power of using… Continue

'Of Walls, Banquets and Giving Thanks'
From the lip of the ledge, the eyes scan the horizon with the sun, rising, and smiling.
Below a chill winter, below Lascaux, France, a hand separates pouched pigments, lays out the bowls, the binders, the brushes, and begins mixing the fire and the colors and the visions, the hand moving across the wall, the lines appearing. The world vibrates, the temple stills, and the homage shapes itself on the wall, dancing into the soul,… Continue

“Hey kid, what’d they arrest you for?”
“I farted during computer class.”
A 13-year-old Stuart, Florida boy was arrested -- arrested! -- for farting during computer class.
According to a story in the Stuart (Florida) News, the unnamed boy had been continually disrupting class by breaking wind and shutting of his classmates… Continue

I've been updating my syllabus for the graduate-level class on storytelling that I will teach for the Indiana University School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) on the Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus next semester.
I am excited because five students have already signed up. I'm sure the university would like there to be more than five students in order to pay the bills, but from a teaching point of view, five is not bad. Students… Continue

All NFPs that want to use free social media tools to spread their message, should pay attention to Tweetsgiving.
This is an inspired way to use twitter, what a beautiful idea!
In this campaign, tweeple who donate the most are ranked on the main page. This adds a distinct element of competition into the mix, generating even more revenue for the cause, AND more exposure for the tweeple who appear… Continue

Have you all seen the new I♥NY logos? There seems to be a universal sense of disappointment in the output of Saatchi & Saatchi's work on the campaign, and an uproar over the 17 million dollar price tag.
You can read my two cents here.
Any body else have any thoughts?…

Just posted a project that I just wrapped up a few weeks ago. I did a short video on the history of halloween so I could stretch my wings a bit using Motion and Final Cut Pro. I wrote, produced, edited, filmed, and created all the animations for the video you can see here:

It’s fundamental – people are more likely to repeat behaviors that bring them a feeling of reward. It’s the same with networking. At traditional networking events, the way it used to be, each of us tried our best to connect with certain other individuals. We thought those connections would be rewarding because of those people’s positions. Say I sold products or services that were used in hospital rooms. I would’ve been particularly interested in meeting… Continue

Anyone in the film basis, big time or two-bit, should read this special issue of the NYT magazine. It's the best overview I've seen on the impact of Image versus text for the many forms of communication we experience on a daily basis.
It starts with the observation that the past year has produced four billion screens (counting PC's, cell phones, TVs, PDAs, game consoles, etc. ) That's one screen for every living person on this earth ! And then, article by article, it explores the… Continue

A couple weeks ago some members of the Compendium
team headed over to the Hilbert Cirlce Theater to attend Happy Hour at the Symphony. We enjoyed appetizers from downtown vendors such as Vitos and Oceanair and had a couple free cocktails prior to the start of the symphony. My favorite appetizers were the oysters provided by Oceanair. And when I say favorite, I don’t mean because I enjoyed them! They were mostly my favorite because it was my first… Continue
