I voted to split it. Like a lot of people have mentioned, their benefits may be affected by so much (sad but true). 

I LOVE my dogs - I have an English Bulldog and a Greyhound - but I would have done exactly the same thing. I think the vast majority of people would. In fact, I once had to rehome a dog we loved like a child because she ran after a child on a bike (she slipped out the front door while I was standing in it, talking to a neighbour who had stopped by) and bit his leg. I knew why she did it and what happened - but the fact remained that she bit a child, and that was that.

I wish I had enough words, or perhaps words that are good enough, to tell you how much I appreciate and respect that you're sharing these posts. I don't know if you're aware of this, or how aware of it you are, but it bears being said again: The world would be a much, much worse off place without you in it. I'm not even saying that because of Noah - although clearly he's a major reason - but because the world needs more people like you. People who are courageous and brave and willing to put themselves out there, on the line, knowing what lies ahead, but soldiering on because they know that it needs to be done in order to give *others* courage to do the same. You don't know me, and we'll probably never meet, but I want you to know that you've made a difference in my life. Thank you. And thank you for choosing life, and the world. <3

Fantastic! I would add in "Innovative". I've been in the field for close to 15 years, and the one thing I constantly have to fall back on is being able to get people talking. You've got to be creative, innovative, and heck, maybe even a bit stubborn! :)

Oh my goodness. This is so disappointing to see - especially considering the fact that you just know that some poor small business owner out there will believe her because she's "an expert".

Good for you for calling her out. I'd have done the same thing. For those of us who are excited about how using social media *properly* can help small businesses, this is simply unfathomable. :(

I like Pinterest, but I can't help but agree with this. ;) I went from not hearing about it more than once or twice a month to my feed being mottled with it. Crazy!

However. ;) Pinterest was getting popular BEFORE this - people just weren't talking about it as much on the channels I'm on. I know my FB friends were very "into" it long before it was all over my Twitter feed, for example. I think it's like anything else. People are excited about it and they're talking about it. A lot. It'll die down, just like everything else does/did. I hope. ;)

Fantastic idea! I'm a Copywriter/Community Manager/Social Media Manager, looking for something within Canada, though I'm willing to relocate. I've spent the last 10 years in communties, and I'm just as happy working remotely as in an office. You can find me on LinkedIn:

Wow, Dan. This is both courageous and amazing. I commend you for being brave enough to share with others to help the conversation. Thank you.

There was a TED talk that discussed how gamers can actually help solve world problems:

While I realize it's not the same type of game, I think there's something to be said about the way that those games make people *think*. It's different. It's from another angle. It's strategic, in a lot of cases.

I'm neither for or against it - I think it has both positives AND negatives.
