Weekly Reading: Tech, Tech, Tech, Chocolate!

I’m back from Florida and have plenty to share. I’ll be putting up the pictures and posting about the trip soon, but for now I have lots of new stories out on these fair interwebs. Not presented in the order the headline would lead you to believe, let’s start with dessert…

First, there’s my SpoiledinLA Holiday Gift Guide Review of Madame Chocolat, which you already got a little preview of.

Then there are two AllBusiness articles: one on web browsing tricks to help you speed up your surfing, and another on whether a netbook is right for you.

And then there’s a piece I did for Entrepreneur.com about the unwritten rules of social networking. I interviewed Joel Postman of Socialized PR about The Unwritten Rules of Social Networking, from how to interact with clients to the best strategies for growing a strong following. We also discussed whether to hire a community manager and how to balance your personal and professional identities. Thanks, Tomdog, for sharing one of your social networking blunders, and thanks to everyone else who shared their social media horror stories via Twitter and LinkedIn, too.

Weekly Reading: AllBusiness and Alimi Ballard

It’s been a while since I’ve done a weekly reading post since I haven’t had too much of my work published lately (don’t worry, I’ve still been working, but I’ve had more print assignments than usual, so they won’t come out until January or February). In any case, I’ve had two articles published recently:

Candid 7 with Alimi Ballard: I interviewed the Numb3rs star about his growing family, doing his own stunts and balancing work and family time. Alimi was a great interview — very friendly and warm, and lots of fun to talk to.

Engaging Customers With Microsoft Surface: I take a look at the coolest new multitouch computer and what it means for business. By the way, I want one of these. And seeing it on CNN’s election coverage only makes me want it more.
