While most of the Midwest works from home today, I’m going to tour the Tate Britain in London, the Museum Kampa in Prague, then maybe putz around at the Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian in D.C., and I might end my journey with the MoMA here in NYC. Google did it again.  They’ve opened the doors for people like me (art-lovers-with-no-money-to-travel) to explore some of the [&hellip... Read More

Social Media In Egypt

By: Gini Dietrich | February 1, 2011 |

By now you’ve certainly heard what’s going on in Egypt. A protest to topple their long-serving president that seems to have begun because of the cost of food. It’s sickening to me that looters are invading the museums and ruining history. There is a time and place for peaceful protests. But people taking advantage and doing damage that can’t be undone? Despicable. Not to mention people [&hellip... Read More

Well, it’s the end of January already and it’s been crazy around here! I was telling my friend Rusty Speidel that January will be more profitable for us than 2008 and 2009 combined. I guess the economy has turned! Between that and all of the brand building we did last year (speaking, blogging, networking, guest blogging, featured columns, social media, email marketing, and more) things are [&hellip...

It’s the Arment Dietrich Facebook question of the week time and this week’s question comes from Elizabeth Shelby. Elizabeth is a student at NYU, but is from Houston. All that snow is probably killing her right now (and I’m insanely jealous)! She asks, “I have a question for your weekly Spin Sucks video post. How do you (Gini, or any of your staff) manage the amount [&hellip... Read More

Tony Hastings is the man behind the Top 10 Blog. So what do I mean by balance? That really depends on your reasons for using social media and what your aims are with your blogging, tweeting, and ‘socialising’. To my mind there are three types of social media users and the concept of balance will be different for each group... Read More

I’ve had one of those weeks that I thought, “It’s OK, Gin. Just get through the week and you can write the top five on the plane Friday morning.” But then the plane didn’t have WiFi and then I had a small fire to put out so now I’m writing this under serious pressure. Come on! I can do this! I have 20 minutes. With no [&hellip... Read More
