I like the new search idea

The idea is that your search engine utilizes things like Facebook likes to enhance SEO. You know, real people's opinions and likes to influence the top hits for search. This is versus people manipulating the system to make their interests at the top.

This is a good direction.

Now this makes it even more important that your business utilize social media.

HTG Vegas Day 2

After some of the members getting in late, some at 4:30 A.M. and some not at all. This caused a slow start. However that only lasted for about 10 minutes then the coffee kicked in. Well, all except Todd, he managed to get an extra 2 hours of sleep. (Yea, the alarm clock didn't go off)

Great day of communication, learning and challenging each other. Things really started to gel.

I look forward to Q2 and Dallas.

Why artists play the Superbowl!

OK Besides the obvious of going I have one more suggestion. The week after the event the 4 of the top 10 artists were M.I.A, Madonna, Cee lo and LMFAO. All played the event.

Guess even flipping off the camera becomes a good move. Nobody knew who M.I.A. was. Now is in the top artists.

Day 1 HTG

Had a great view from the room that got me ready for day 1 of HTG meetings. This was the second time we met as this group. Nothing like putting 10 strong personalities in a room to keep you on your toes.

Spent a lot of time talking about manager development. How long does it take, how do you mentor and what type of training is the best? Ont thing that we all agreed on is to disagree.

The best part about this day was the group decided how it wanted the facilitator to operate and some details around this. Very helpful. This day ended with dinner at Margeritaville then off to the Jabbawokeez This ended around midnight. Some of the crew went to the Intel party which led to many not going to bed at all. We will see how Friday goes.
