GSME #26 :: End Game

The Great Social Media Experiment is taking a rest until December. There are a number of reasons: the most significant one remains the most important. I fully understand the significance of the online sell: so much more than that was the case when all this began, and with honesty in tow. There does have to be … Continue reading GSME #26 :: End Game

GSME #25: Robot Love

If there's one thing I hate more than Robot Twitter accounts, it is real people who pretend they're not using follower tools when on Twitter. Once upon a time, it was really easy to spot the people who'd be using Crowdfire (or any of the numerous 'grow your audience' online apps) because as soon as … Continue reading GSME #25: Robot Love

My mini break seems a lifetime away, it must be said, after the last week, but I am now almost in a position to feel organised again. As a result, here's the changed layout to the Website week as a result of the leaves on my Gym walk already beginning to change colour. It may … Continue reading Still Alive

GSME #21 :: Secret

Today's story is about how a portion of the Internet really is a secret society, run by a select few individuals who know the rules for success. If you choose to enter their world, you might become 'rich' beyond your wildest dreams. The problem is, that success grants no guarantee that you'll survive outside Cyberspace. … Continue reading GSME #21 :: Secret
