I have just a few links this morning.
The folks at Sportsvite stopped by the other day to tell me about their site, which is a social network site that creates a bridge into the "real" world by allowing people to organize their sports teams online, or find a team to join. I found 43 ultimate frisbee players here in DC, which would be cool, except that I don't know how to play ultimate frisbee, but Jake does . . .
Blog the Campaign in 08 is a new blog looking at "how social media is changing the political landscape," which I guess I do here from time to time as well (and anticipate doing more of over the course of the next year and a half until I get sick and tired of analyzing social media and become a dictator of my own country in which I control all media). Marianne Richmond, one of the editors over at BlogHer, is one of four contributors. I found the blog via Buzzfeed — along with The Soccer Mom Vote — when Buzzfeed posted about "Presidential Campaigns from a Mommy Perspective".
I deleted a couple of blogs from the blog roll and added my colleague Jim Dowling's blog, Let's Keep It Simple, because, in addition to the fact that I like what he has to say, I appreciate his subtitle:
It's public relations, not rocket science.It reminds me of the time my colleague Chris came into my office, exasperated, because someone had just called with a PR "emergency". "We work in PR," Alison, "we're not trauma surgeons."
