Spring has sprung, and we’ve spent the week voting for friends in Klout’s Agency Insanity, wondering how we’re going to find time in our lives for Draw Something and Angry Birds Space, using our client’s new app to find our first spring cocktail, and watching this baby eagle on an unused computer screen in our [...]

Happy Friday! Admittedly with Daylight Savings in effect, it’s been hard to not stay outside all day, but we’ve been coping. When not giggling over Pictures of People Scanning QR codes, we’ve been contemplating deleting all those smug SXSW tweets from our stream, puzzling over the use of homeless people as hotspots, and mourning the [...]

This wasn’t the hottest week in social media news, which is not surprising with the short holiday week and coming off a jam packed Social Media Week the week before.  However, while things may have been rather quiet, we did find a few stories particularly fascinating, and at least one that has us contemplating what [...]

It’s Friday! We’ve been either attending or livestreaming Social Media Week panels and caught up in #Linsanity  (yes, us too) and all its ever enduring puns and memes here in the office. When not live tweeting the Grammys or looking at breakdowns of the social media industry, we’ve been linking each other to these stories. We’re logging off for the [...]

The New York office was buzzing this week. Whether it was the post-glow of the Giants’ Super Bowl win, the inaugural Affinitive organized NYC Lithium Meet Up, or the countdown to Social Media Week where our own Bob Troia will be appearing on a panel, there was something in the air that made us all [...]

It’s February already! We’ve been busy at the office with luncheons, superbowl boxes, and of course, prepping our weekly roundup just for you! When not shuddering at the news that giant Burmese pythons have invaded Florida, we’ve been chuckling at Apple Scotland’s Siri issues, rejoicing at LeVar Burton’s takeover of the @readingrainbow, giggling at the VW “Bark Side” [...]

Happy Friday! The office has been abuzz with end of the month activities and sushi lunches. When not discussing Super Bowl pools, we’ve been following Chad Ochocinco’s live tweeting of the State of the Union Address and his concerns over Speaker John Boehner’s state of happiness, admiring Instagram tabs on Facebook, and mulling over Gizmodo’s stringent [...]

Happy Friday! We’ve been clutching our coffee mugs close to us for warmth and fighting off the winter blues with cute videos of baby sloths , daydreams of the other kind of sopa and lots of caffeine. When not enthralled by a rather mesmerizing zebra dance or bemoaning the fate of the future at the mass protest [...]

Happy Friday the 13th! We’ve been doubling back, backing up everything repeatedly, and monitoring the office wireless from the corner of our eye today. When not puzzling over some truly bizarre taco-fueled crimes, refreshing the #truthvigilante hashtag, wondering at Verizon’s decision to create a gamified aspect to their brand or people who fell for the Facebook color scam, [...]

When we weren’t watching a literal interpretation of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” – this time with Doctor Who! –   or getting free Timeline inspired business cards and laughing at the hapless teenagers featured [...]
