Don't Squeeze the Twitter!!!

Greetings friends and followers

Don't Squeeze the Twitter!!!?

Well actually the term is Twitter Squeeze a term coined by Rick Butts only 48 hours ago and already number one with a bullet on Google.

Check out Rick's halarious broadcast (below) to learn more about the "Evil Empire" (kidding) behind this totally off the showroom floor marketing term that Rick has come up with. (congratulations Rick)

Connect to Rick's blog to learn much more about this new term, the sheer "power" ("yeah baby"...a Rick term) of Internet 2.0 marketing and how it just might have a greater effect on your life than email and MSN messenger.

I got to squeeze the Twitter and all I can say is WOW! You can squeeze too @twittersqueeze.

Sorry but @twittersqueeze is not set up yet. Don't despair you can squeeze too, just click this link

Thanks for looking....Enjoy

Smiles :o)


p.s. Don't forget to vote for Rick as the Internet Marketer of the year for Twitter Squeeze. (oh yeah Rick hasn't set that poll up yet) LOL Oh well, just be ready when he does...

Oh yeah and shoot me a comment if this is something that you could get into. (Twitter Squeeze that is) and what you think of it all thanks...

Setup Weekend on MSNBC...

Hello Everyone

If you have an idea for the "next big thing" well this might be right up your alley.

Startup Weekend recruits a highly motivated group of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more to a 54 hour event that builds communities, companies and projects.

Founded in 2007 by Andrew Hyde, the weekend is a concept of a conference focusing on learning by creating. It is known for its quick decisions, ‘out of the box’ thinking, unique facilitation technique and letting the founders show what they can do. The program has already met with success in Boulder, Toronto, New York, Hamburg, Houston, West Lafayette, Boston, DC and more.

Check it out at and just maybe there will be a startup weekend in your area.

Be sure to leave a comment here about what you think of this idea. Or you can contact me on Twitter @garydotgray

Brain Rules...

Hello Everyone (friends and followers)

If you want to understand how we humans use our brains to learn and/or to buy goods and services then get a copy of Dr.John Medina's book "Brain Rules" (Mentioned by Ed Dale on The Thirty Day Challenge TV broadcast Sunday July 13th.)

Below is a power point presentation (131 slides) based on John's book by Garr Reynold's and can be found on his blog "Presentation Zen"

If you click the link you can read Garr's entire blog post and watch some very informative videos that are included in his post not to mention a number of links to related material.

Also check out John's extremely interesting presentation on the subject of our brain.

Having suffered a life threatening and debilitating stroke a few years back I have come to appreciate just how important our brains are.

I hope you enjoy the referenced material and I also hope you are able to increase your knowledge base along the way. If you appreciate this or any other content on my Location Independent Living Now blog please post a comment and add the blog to your Google Reader so that you will receive future posts as they are posted.

Smiles :o)

What a NOVEL idea!!!

Hello to all of my location independent readers...Welcome back.

Here is a treat...from the folks at Common Craft. (they bring you all of those great videos on how to use the new tech offerings on the internet)

They are obliviously bent in the non traditional direction. (and what is wrong with that?)

Check this out:

"I suppose some would say it's downright un-American, but we worked on July 4th and 5th. It was our choice - a choice that enabled us to take the 7th and 8th and go camping without the hordes of people. It's something we do often - work when others aren't so we can play without crowds. It's a choice we make."

Read more here.

Enjoy the your mind and try to think outside the box. (it can be more fun)

Also look for the great videos that they have released along the way.

Smiles :0)
