Look, I have to be frank, social media should be as important to you as it is to Generation iY. Haven’t heard of Generation iY? They’re the second half of Gen Y.

jeff noel is active, daily, on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, You Tube, and of course as The Blog Whisperer, blogs. But it was Twitter that just lead to Tim Elmore.

Because I’m at the end of a 2-year prolific blogger transformation, each passing day has me worried less about who follows. Who follows will take care of itself. And if you follow, you should watch this 4-minute video, and make big plans to be part of the rescue effort.

Dear fellow classmates, Guests, staff, and all those not with us tonight…

What an honor, and privilege, for us all to be gathered here this evening.

First and foremost, a very grateful thank you to our reunion organizers. We wouldn’t be here without them. seriously, we wouldn’t.

In case you haven’t already heard, congress is currently reviewing new bills that threaten the very fabric of the internet. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) bill, and it’s sister bill, Protect IP Act (PIPA), are currently working their way through the United States Congress and the Senate. If these bills pass any copyright holder can simply allege a site infringes on their copyright and the site could be redirected at the DNS level and be cut off from all major ad services and payment processing services – all without any trial or due process of any kind. It’s scary stuff, but we won’t rehash the full issue here. Read this post, from the Electronic Frontier Foundation to learn more about this issue.
