But for old times sake, and old school tech too, the stuff I'm watching today:
- Like millions of other Americans, I hardly even care that today is the inauguration of Barack Obama for his second term. The first one mattered, even though I wasn't a supporter, this second one matters not at all. Same leaders, same gridlock.
- Self Promotion Alert - I wrote this one - With a bit of irony and a desire to create some debate I wrote over at NWISM.com an article about the lack of collaboration in NW Indiana, the lack of tech start-up venture capital, and the argumentative fashion adopted by some in the spaces.
- A recent connection for me, but a long time writer over at Little Indiana is doing a series on local blogs in Indiana. A project I wish I had endeavored to follow through with years ago on my own NWIBlogs site. She's adding social media support and doing some solid writing.
- As many long time connections know, I am a home builder by passion and trade. That means I spend much of my time working with real estate and mortgage professionals. They are a special group, and entrepreneurism is rampant. Although blogging again has diminished, sadly because social media content tends to be minimal and vapid, some are still creating solid and enduring content.
