  1. Mashable is just an awesome website that covers all things tech and social media. I get so much of my news from them, most of it delivered to my mobile devices. As for foursquare, it seemed creepy/ridiculous to me for a while, and then I started experimenting with it and became obsessed. I’m just now finding a happy medium. I love watching marketers adopt social media as promotional tools, and the expansion of location-based commerce (l-commerce) is fascinating to me. I’ll tell you all about it when I come down. 😀

  2. So, um, I don’t get Mashable. What does it do?

    Also, Foursquare just seems creepy to me.

    It amazes me that I can spend 8+ hours/day on my computer and still feel like a Luddite.
