Building Your Online Brand Voice — As an entrepreneur, in many ways you're selling the idea of you, not just your products and services. Your clients aren't buying from a big corporate brand, so they need to get a sense of you - what you represent, your values and your beliefs.

5 social media lessons from Roger Ebert, @EbertChicago — It's appropriate that I learned on Twitter of the passing of Roger Ebert -- not only because that's the place I get most of my breaking news, but also because Ebert helped me understand the power of social media and helped me teach it to others.

Italia Innovation Program's Day in Venice — July 1, 2015: Italia Innovation Program's #BackToItaly team spent a day working and playing in Venice.

5 lessons from a lost iPhone — For years, I've been doing the Gadget Boy dance. It's what you do when you get out of a taxi in NYC, tapping various parts of your clothing to make sure you have your gadgets, keys, wallet, etc., with you. On Sunday, as I exited a cab, I forgot to do the dance and left my iPhone 4S behind.

Kristofize: Social birthday present for Nick Kristof aims to do good — Dear Friends (the real kind and social media kind): Let's Kristofize! (Or Kristofise, if you prefer the British version of this made-up word.) Nick Kristof (@NickKristof), the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist (he was a finalist this year, too -- but hey, they need to spread the wealth) is someone who uses his talents and platform to make a real difference in the lives of people around the world.

Sree tips - Columbia Journalism Review — What's the etiquette about including your company name in your Twitter handle? Some news organizations force, or strongly encourage, employees to include a company identifier in their Twitter handles (if Wile E. Coyote were a journalist, his handle might be @WileeAcmeNews). My policy: If they don't force you to do this, don't do it on your own.
