Past is Prologued: LOMAP Marketing Group Both Ends and Begins, Same Time

A long, long time ago, I promised a sixth, and final, installment of a series of posts covering the progress of our inaugural LOMAP marketing group. I bet you thought that I forgot. But I didn’t. I’m like Santa Claus in that way. Previously, I had posted five installments, covering the […]

There’s Apps for Those, Too: The iPhone is Not the Only Well-App-Ointed Smart Phone

I’d like to thank Sudbay Motors of Gloucester for providing wireless internet in their waiting room, so that I could research and draft part of this blog while I waited for a small repair to be made on my gallant Jeep Commander (I love this car) this Valentine’s Day, er, I mean . . . […]

Time in a Bottleneck: Online Scheduling Tools Make Meetings Happen

Getting a large number of people together for a meeting is like herding cats into a bathtub. When you’re talking busy cats . . . I mean, people . . . it’s even worse. Grease those cats. Now, give those greased cats business suits and a knowledge of how to exploit loopholes. […]
