Cool video: 50 Power Twitter Tips

A few days ago Chris Brogan posted a list with 50 Power Twitter Tips. That post is a great source of advice for both beginners and experienced members of the Twitter community.

Well, recently a guy named Paul Durman, created a very cool video with the tips that Chris posted in his blog. Check it out!

How cool is that? It is remarkable when people not only share and spread the message across, but that also care enough to add value while doing it so. That’s just excellent!

So, two things. Fist of all, do not forget to always share great stuff every time you find something worthy; and second, take into consideration the tips given in the video. I am sure they will have a very positive impact on your Twitter experience.

Social Media Revolution 2

Being involved with social media advisory I love to follow all the interesting data and information connected to this phenomenon. Back in July 2009, a fantastic video entitled: Social Media Revolution, was published in YouTube. This video, produced by Erik Qualman, author of the fantastic book Socialnomics: How Social Media Transforms the Way We Live and Do Business (Amazon affiliate link), shared some outstanding facts and figures that were simply hard to ignore.

Well, recently a new update of that fantastic video has been published and here I would like to share it with you.


As you can see, the impact that social media has in our society is incredible, and videos like this one help us better understand, what is happening in these exciting times. Specially considering what Erik Qualman says:

“We don’t have a choice whether we do social media, the question is how well we do it

So … how well are you doing social media?

Why we need emotions to accomplish great things

My plan for today was to share with you the video of the TEDx Talk I gave at the TEDx Wulkan event back in April 25th, 2010.

Unfortunately due to some technical problems the video with my TED Talk has not been able to be uploaded. Hopefully this issue will be solved in the near future.

So, I have decided to share with you an outstanding presentation from that event. This TEDx Talk by Michal Marcinkowski apart from being quite funny and entertaining, it was very informative and inspiring, as it shares extremely valuable advice for entrepreneurs and for anybody that wants to accomplish great things.
