If there is an issue with any of them, please address all concerns to me. This includes, but is not limited to, my personal twitter account, my posterous, facebook, flickr, qik, vimeo, youtube, and this website. The exceptions to this are for the accounts that I manage with express permission for my employer or clients. These currently include, but are not limited to and can change without notice, the online presence of Easton for Schools, Cool (intl), codename LINGO, and Hamline Student Business Group. Those opinions are still my own, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of my current employer, and should be taken at face value.
