For those of you that have followed me over the last few months, you are probably aware that I was part of the most recent layoff at Mzinga. I had a great time working for them in some way/shape/form over the last 2+ years. With every ending, starts a new beginning, new doors are opened and all of that fun stuff……

I have had the fortune to be friends and have worked with many well established personalities within the “Social Media” field, if you will. I appreciate all that has been done for me over the last few days and am overwhelmed with the kindness and thoughtful communication that has come my way. I would like to thank everyone that has proactively taken time out of their day to communicate with me.

Regardless of when and where I land, I promise to leverage this blog to share my experiences within Community Development over the last 10 years. I may at times focus on Moderation, or steer off course and discuss general best practices, but I hope that you all find this blog informative.

The one thing that has become apparent during this whole situation, thanks for this thought from one of my good friends, is that there is a fundamental shift happening between corporations and their employees. Corporations no longer have a strangle hold on their employees and what information is out there. Walls are falling down left and right and communication outlets are endless. The more transparent that both can be, the more successful each will be.

The changes that I have made over the past few days reminds me of the new Movie UP. I am in the process of building my Hot Air balloon and ready to take off for new adventures. Hopefully we can all learn from each other during this trip.

Thanks for reading.
