Comcast or Digis?

I’m finally getting Internet installed in my house (been in a remodel situation).

Should I go with Comcast or Digis? Or, should I consider something else?

DavidPolitis.com goes live.

Two days ago I walked into David Politis’ office (he’s my employer at the PR firm), and I asked him one simple question: “Are you ready to start blogging yet?”

He’s ready, and he’s live. (The overall look will evolve with time, but as Guy Kawasaki says, don’t wait around. Get started.) In the meantime, the content is great. Have a read.

Mac or PC?

I’m getting a new laptop. What should it be? Mac? PC?

Utah Bloggers conf. a hit

The Utah Bloggers Conference was a hit last night, and I ended up getting the Salt Lake Tribune and KSL radio to show up. KSL TV was supposed to come as well, but after about five phone calls back and forth between me and the reporter about details and times, she told me they had something else come up.

So, here’s a lesson from working with TV stations and media relations . . . TV can change it’s mind at the drop of a hat. At about 4:30 p.m. yesterday, KSL TV was still coming, but it all changed shortly before because (to put it lightly) something more timely and newsworthy came up for them. It happens. Mother Teresa died around the same time as Princess Diana, but what do people remember? Kirby Pucket died the day before the Barry Bonds steroid allegations came out, but what do people remember? It happens. It’s the nature of news.

Whatever the case, thanks to Ryan Money and Phil Burns for putting it on.

Two roads diverged

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.”

I have been thinking a lot today about these lines from a poem by Robert Frost called “The Road Not Taken,” and I have been wondering . . . for the guy in the poem, what was it that really got him to take one road over the other?
