DSCN5322

A day at the races, sounds like something one says who is from the south. American south, I mean (and yes I can say that because I am a southern native myself).

DSCN4989

As you probably know from my previous posts or my blog’s facebook page, I am currently in Pisa, Italy on a four day blog tour scouring the city & attending conferences at the Internet Festival on a wide range of topics about the world-wide-web. It is only day  3 and yet it feels like a lifetime. Imagine 15 hour days – tours – more Italian than I can handle (kidding) and tons of delicious food that I wish I could…

pisa

If you haven’t heard about this year’s International Internet Festival in Pisa and you work online (which probably involves everyone to some extent) than this is the introductory blog post for you. Obviously I’ve made it pretty clear that I work online or well let’s be honest, various jobs all online based or partly so. Being that as it may, obviously part of being good at your job is constantly educating yourself and keeping in touch with current trends. This…
