  • 5. What is Social Media?
    • Rule #10: multitasking makes you stupid. Do a single task and increase quality (props @ kathysierra - http://bit.ly/sM8D )
    • Rule #9: be a wellspring of thoughts and inspiration to others. On the fly. Come on, I dare ya.
    • Rule #8: be careful what you say. If you think only social media folks are watching this space, think again.
    • Rule #7: know when to take a break - and going on Twitter doesn’t count as taking a break
    • Rule #6: be adept at thought, speech, and action - and know that they are all connected.
    • Rule #5: learn to type 80+ words per minute, you’ll need it
    • Rule #4: your goal ultimately should be to help change the world.
    • Rule #3: love what you do.
    • Rule #2: more coffee (good guess, @ localseoguide )
    • Rule #1: coffee.

  • 8. Do This
    • “ We were able to get a good idea of Kevin's skills and interests just by conversing over Twitter for several months. While it doesn't remove the need for interviews, it makes the interview process more like hiring a friend than hiring a stranger.” -Peter Waldschmidt, CEO of Gnoso
