About a year ago (July 28, 2009), I wrote perhaps one of the stupidest tweets in the history of the Twitterverse. Yes, the tweet [picture above] was written as a joke – an example of my dry humor. You see, I had ruptured my left Achilles about 5 years ago playing basketball.
Let me say that while I’ve had my share of injuries and painful incidents (like having my right leg run over by a car), a ruptured Achilles (to date) has been the most painful physical pain (doubt emphasis) I have ever experienced. I’d like to say that I was one tough dude but instead, I winced, whined, and whimpered like a baby.
And so, I thought it would be funny to write that tweet except that night, I managed to actually rupture my other Achilles.
- Da*n. [I admit, I used other words that night]
- What a sick tweet.
- How stupid.
Last year was the toughest year of my life. And rupturing my Achilles was the event that basically broke my back and it wasn’t just the physical pain…there was so much more but in the end, it was God’s way of showing mercy and grace to me and my soul.
To this day, I share that in looking back, I felt as if God had literally snapped my Achilles that night in order to slow me down or to literally stop me. Read the rest of this entry »

What in the world happened to MySpace? Did Robert Murdoch make a bad investment when he purchased MySpace for 580 million dollars in 2005? At one point, people were referring to MySpace as a potential Google killer. Wow – how fast things change.
I never had a MySpace account but dabbled with Q Cafe’s MySpace account and wasn’t impressed. But recents news [shared below] via the Guardian UK is not news to anyone, right? MySpace – Web 2.0’s darling a few years ago is now less than half the size of it’s younger rival, Facebook, and now officically in decline.
So, here are my questions in an attempt to better understand the fast changing aspect of social media and post Web 2.0.
What happened to MySpace? Will it be around 5 years from now?
We all know that businesses come and go; New trends come and go. But in light of our incredibly fast changing world especially via technology Read the rest of this entry »
