Yeah, I played the lottery along with all the other bazillion people last week. I didn’t win the lottery. I did, however, win the POWERBALL – which means I won three dollhairs. ($3). Sure, I spent $5 on my tickets… but I got $3 back. AND I ended up buying a large Diet Coke and a breakfast biscuit […]

I’m that guy. I bought a lottery ticket. Sue me. Wait, don’t sue me, cause if I win, I’ll have a lot of money for you to sue me for. Anyway. A girl can dream. Also, a shameless request… would you go here and vote for JOHN + MOLLY? (That’s me and my husband). Sure, we’re in 2nd place… […]
Companies screw up. People screw up. If a company is owned by a person, they’re gonna screw up… at some point. It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to screw up. It’s okay to totally blow it. It’s okay to make a decision and then realize, “OH CRAP, that was a horrible decision.” It’s called experience. It’s […]
Here’s a link to the article I referenced: http://bit.ly/GULYXj Here’s the link to the code I was talking about: http://bit.ly/H9zAj8 Here’s what I think: 1. As long as the image is linked to and credited, I see no issue.
This is my YAY FACEBOOK! face: So, since I wrote that article about employers asking job seekers for Facebook passwords earlier this week, there’s been a FOLLOW UP. By the way, thank you all SO much for getting the discussion going. It spawned a lot of comments and even an episode of a podcast. Clearly you guys have opinions about this […]
In honor of tonight’s basketball game and last night’s Hunger Games premier, I present today’s Fuggedaboutit Friday: Go Heels. …and here’s a shot, for your viewing pleasure, of @rAVePubs own NC Nwoko… dressed up for the midnight showing of The Hunger Games. Yeah, we went to see it. BOOM.
Look at how young I look in that picture. Oh, those were the days. haha —–> +++ This is a post that’s been brewing for a while. Weeks, months… perhaps even years. This is for anyone in any industry. Whether it’s AV, technology, media, social media, education, furniture, whathaveyou. Respect the Noobs in your industry, no matter how ignorant they […]
This is my AREYOUKIDDINGME?! face. Each morning when I get into work, I peruse my RSS feeds for the latest in social and digital media news. I figure that as the Director of Marketing for a digital publication, I should probably be “in the know.” Right? Well I was, to put it lightly, appalled, when I read an […]
So, I was doing some graphic design today. Which, by the way, I really wish I were better than mediocre at doing. Seriously. I really enjoy graphic design, but I get really frustrated because I’m mediocre. I want to be really good. Great, even. If for nothing else than to cut my time spent in […]
This post has absolutely nothing to do with the AV industry. I calm myself down by writing. Therefore, I’m going to write about this. <RANT> Do you know who that is? That’s RG3. Robert Griffin III. This year’s Heismann Trophy winner. He’s an extremely sought after prospect for the NFL this year. Now, I love RG3 as much as the […]
So, there I was, at the Social Security Administration office yesterday getting my name legally changed. I’m in the quiet waiting room, a very old, quiet waiting room, sitting among the 30+ other people, and I look up. There, on the wall, among old stuff, is a nice, shiny, new, SHARP Aquos digital signage display with information […]
Be honest, you know that at some point in your life, you’ve done that thing where you walk into a bathroom, the shower curtain is closed, and you HAVE TO OPEN IT before you use the potty. Cause there could TOTALLY be someone hiding behind that shower curtain. Admittedly, I do this often. But hey, […]
Today is Wednesday. Today is a great day. Why? First: Because I JUST COMPLETED MY “Essentials of AV Technology” InfoComm Academy Class! That’s right, AV ladies and gents. For those of you that know what that is, it’s the first step towards becoming CTS certified. WOOT WOOT! Now, I know this is something that happens all the time. Many people […]
It’s Michael’s birthday! Michael works in the rAVePubs office and I love having a desk right next to him. Not only is he SUPER smart, he’s REALLY hilarious. Seriously. The guy says some of the funniest things ever. So, this post is just to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MICHAEL! We love you! And you’re not old. You’re 25 years […]
Not trying to pat our own backs or anything, but I just have to say, we produce a &$*%-ton of content here at rAVe. Seriously. A lot. You know about our news. Our newsletters. Our blogs. Duh. Digital Signage Glossary? Yeah, that too. But do you know about our Podcasts? We partnered with AV Nation to bring you a ton […]
I am a Carolina Basketball fan. No, I did not go to Carolina. Despite this detail, I do sometimes refer to Carolina as “us” or “we” in sentences. As in: “We really need to work on our rebounding” or “I can’t believe UNLV beat us” or “Why did we EVER recruit Neil Fingleton?” However, despite the fact that my alma mater, quite literally, is the dyslexic […]
A lot of people are giving Apple a hard time for not using the 2012 Snore Super Bowl to advertise. Samsung took a lot of silent, or not-so-silent, jabs at Apple and the iPhone with their commercials, and many Apple fans and Apple haters are thinking that not advertising wasn’t a smart move for Apple. I disagree. A whole lot. […]
