How Dave Williams Lies with JavaScript
I get the impression that Dave Williams is actually from whatever town someone visiting his site happens to live in. Regardless, here's a little trick Dave Williams uses to lie to visitors to his website.

Do You Have to Follow People to Use Twitter Correctly?
McCaskill is picking up followers at a rate of hundreds per day, yet is using Twitter wrong? I get the impression that Mr. Social Media Consultant, Matthew Chamberlin @mchamberlin sent out a tweet yesterday that piqued my interest.

My Least Favorite Twitter Tweets
Consider adding a little context to @reply messages so all followers can be part of the conversation. However, they're also irrelevant to almost all of the sender's followers.

Rocky Mountain News' Last Advertisers
Just because people spend their valuable time digging up stories that should be told doesn't mean there is a market for them. It doesn't say much about the quality of the reporting done by the paper, which is something I think if often overlooked.

Why Online Retail Has High Customer Service Scores

How to Improve Conference Name Badges

How to Improve Conference Name Badges

Matt Cutts thinks he can improve the typical conference's name badge. He breaks it down in this drawing:

2-Sided is a pretty good idea since they do tend to flip around.

However, Dan Grisby has proposed a different solution to the flipping problem that may work equally as well: Use two holes. If the badge has holes punched on each corner rather than a single hole in the middle, the spaced lanyard attachments would probably be enough to keep it from spinning.

Dan's solution to that part of the badge problem seems like the way to go because few conferences are set up for 2-sided badge printing.
