BDO Experiment: All Twitter, All of the Time

I have become fascinated with Twitter. Not sure how great it is, but I am willing to give it a try for a bit and I have decided to go "All in". Fold in the fact that Bearing Drift Ohio gets a very low number of daily hits (sigh) I am going to make Bearing Drift Ohio a Twitter Only destination for a bit.

The plan is simple: when you dial up you will be sent to my Twitter Page. There you can read my updates, join twitter and comment by following and learn more about what I am doing. So instead of coming to Bearing Drift Ohio to read long thoughts, you can simply walk with me for a minute to hear an idea.

Now people who are not members of Twitter will still be able to read my quick posts, click on the links I post, etc.

I will be shifting this URL to my Twitter page on Wednesday, December 17, 2009.

Bearing Drift Ohio now on Twitter

I was inspired and motivated by Matt at WMD to create a Twitter account. I have. I have also added the Twitter update on my sidebar!

Please, come follow me @BDOhio

Illinois Gov. Blagojevich Arrested: Where there is smoke….

Democrat Gov Blagojevich decided to put Obama's Senate seat up for sale... among othere crimes. Sure am glad there are no gubernatorial appointments pending in Ohio (?). Of course the entire cabinet has not been determined yet so... I personally do not understand the big deal. It is not like the Governor helped cover up an illegal access of data like Joe the Plumber...

What I find interesting is how Tony Rezko is intertwined with Gov. Blagojevich, President Elect Obama and so many others… but none of these people, or any of there activities are related. Right.....

Stay tuned because more is bound to come out including who is "Client Number 5"? Noticed how the Jesse Jackson Jr. camp has become VERY quiet?

Keith Olbermann’s Network is Staffed by Pros

You have to love the expert professionalism over at MSNBC. This shows why producers A) work off camera and B) most on air talent hates them.

Watch the anchor woman squirm and is too chicken shit to tell that jack ass off camera to shut up.
(Warning, adults using words that adults use)

Check Your FaceBook, Stupid

I do not have a Face Book account. I do have a LinkedIn account. I am an executive recruiter, so it is a great tool for business.

A lot of my friends talk up Face Book. I see it as a slightly mature version of My Space, which I think is a tween gathering site (for tweens and pedos, sadly). Today I saw yet another reason FaceBook is bad.

For a while there this afternoon, President-elect Barack Obama's immensely talented chief speechwriter, 27-year-old Jon Favreau, might have been pondering how to address that question [about any items online that could be embarrassing].

That's when some interesting photos of a recent party he attended -- including one where he's dancing with a life-sized cardboard cut-out of secretary of state-designate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and another where he's placed his hand on the cardboard former first lady's chest while a friend is offering her lips a beer -- popped up on Face Book for about two hours. The photos were quickly taken down -- along with every other photo Favreau had of himself on the popular social networking site, save for one profile headshot

By the way, as an executive recruiter, yes, I do look around MySpace and Face Book as well as Google for candidates I interview. My client need to know if they are hiring someone who may embarrass (or lighten up) the office.
