Today we are focused on a widespread problem that affects individuals and society as a whole: The unhealthy fast food that is feeding America’s obesity epidemic. Read More
The Foursquare elections checkin map gave some very interesting data, and I’m glad they shared it – as it put Foursquare in perspective for me.

Here in Michigan, with a state as large as ours, we had 1713 checkins as of 11:30pm. At first, that sounds great.

It used to be online interaction through social media was -only- an afterthought. To put four full-time folks on this is commitment of time and resources that shows that, in fact, they DO get it.
