Daily Thoughts 06/29/2012
I finished reading The Age of Anansi this morning by James Lovegrove. It is not a childrens story at all. It brings out the meaner side of the trickster characters. Lokis ability to be either a man or a woman, Hermes tendency to steal things, and other characteristics. I rather like Anansi tricking the Monkey King with peaches. It does not have a typical ending. It is a novella.
I also started reading The Complete Idiots Guide to Creating a Social Network by Angela Crocker. The main focus is on white label and custom social networking software like Ning, GoSocial, Buddypress, and Onesite. It is focused on how to integrate sites like these with social media like Twitter and Facebook.
I also joined the Community Manager, Advocate, and Evangelist Group on Facebook which is a group for people that work with social media. I also plan on following The Community Roundtable on Twitter @TheCR, there is also a Community Manager chat on Twitter under the hashtag #cmgrchat
