Dear American Airlines,

This is a really hard letter for me to write, but here it goes: I'm leaving you.

Unbundling Media: Why Microcontent Is the Future of Social Sharing

There seems to be a strong inverse correlation between the use of social media and users' attention spans: as social media becomes more popular, people are less willing to spend a lot of time reading long form content. Therefore, one might conclude that the obvious answer to this dilemma is...

Want More Social Media Publicity? Ask Che Guevara!

(1) Comments | Posted April 1, 2013 | 2:18 PM

The term "guerrilla" used to get a pretty bad rap. Our dear comrades in South America associated it with armies or military tactics, but today it gets thrown around quite a bit in discussions about online marketing.

A heroic outlaw prowls the forest with his band of Merry Men, looking for caravans of nobility to loot and plunder for the poor.

An Open Letter to John Brennan: Don't Drone Me, Bro!

(1) Comments | Posted February 12, 2013 | 1:00 PM

Wuttup Brennan,

No need for introductions bro, I've been following your work. I know people are on you about shifting U.S. counter-terrorism policy to "targeted, surgical pressure" on militant groups intent on attacking the homeland, but whatever -- people harass us for our frat's policy of "targeted, surgical pressure" on...
