The coolest thing I saw all week, no contest, was Felix Baumgartner’s supersonic free fall skydive. Nothing beats that. Red Bull has two short videos of the event: a 1:30 minute highlight version and a 4:30 minute full recap version. Both are exhilarating to watch. If you publish text, video, and photos on the web, please understand how copyright works. I’ve been a little loose a few times with screenshots of YouTube videos, but other than that, I try to stick to the rules, it’s only fair.

In one corner, a company that made a mess of customer service and then made it worse with social media. A moving company threatened to sue my friend’s wife because she wrote a negative Yelp review about them. The company also purchased positive Yelp reviews, deleted negative Facebook updates, and doesn’t seem to know how to dig itself out except by digging deeper. The beautiful part of the Internet is that everyone can now be a publisher.

This is no ordinary Friday. Tonight we’re driving two hours to Greensboro to see two old flames from my childhood – Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. The remains of The Who is on tour doing Quadrophenia, the album that started my love affair with them. And anyone who knew me in high school, college or beyond knows how crazy I was about that band. I expect to be ridiculously excited and emotional for a few hours. Long live rock! Is one of your employees a social media rock star?

I’ve fallen in love with poetry! You knew it would happen eventually. Yes, I had a dalliance with Yeats when I was much younger – it was during my romantic Irish phase – but we drifted apart. Thanks to a modern poetry class I’m taking at Coursera – an online educational platform – I’m spending time with Emily, Walt, William, Gertrude, Alan, and many more. And you know what? This could be serious.

That’s Not the Real Me: How Vanity Sabotages Facebook Advertising by Louie Herr. I find this idea both hilarious and accurate, especially this: “We are actors on a stage. Shakespeare, as ever, proves prescient.” We’re a crafty bunch, showing off our best selves on Facebook, sometimes cool, sometimes not. Recently I’ve posted several photos of backyard wildlife – turtles, spiders, lizards – not sure what I’m telling advertisers and the rest of my Facebook friends with that display.

If I had to pick one blog to take with me to a deserted island, it might be Brain Pickings. Maria Popova is a curator like no other, bringing us fascinating posts about creativity, knowledge, science, art, culture, and more. She describes herself as “an interestingness hunter-gatherer and curious mind at large.” That’s what I want to be when I grow up. Somehow I stumbled upon a post of hers from earlier this year: A 5-Step Technique for Producing Ideas circa 1939.

Thanks to all my other friends and colleagues in the association community for sharing your intentions for 2012.

The morning after Sandy hit I read a post by John Herrman about how we use Twitter during disasters. Twitter’s capacity to spread false information is more than canceled out by its savage self-correction. In response to thousands of retweets of erroneous Weather Channel and CNN reports that the New York Stock Exchange had been flooded with “three feet” of water, Twitter users, some reporters and many not, were relentless: photos of the outside of the building, flood-free, were posted.

I’m keeping it light. My favorite subject line this week was on a message posted by an association executive director in ASAE’s online community: “I need to shoot my leadership.”. What?! Having trouble with the board? Nope, he was only looking for a photographer to do some head shots. How disappointing, but what a hilarious subject line, good job. My favorite tweet of the week came from @capricecrane: “It’s weird there aren’t more songs about pizza.”.

I didn’t go to ASAE’s Technology Conference this week because I was too busy and too cheap, but I almost felt like I was there – minus the hugs, good conversation and drinks. You know why – Twitter, baby. Following the hashtag (#tech12), I got the highlights from the two keynote sessions with Brian Solis and Dion Hinchcliffe , the town hall with Reggie Henry , and several sessions featuring association technology experts and smarty pants. It’s not exactly like being there but it’s good stuff.
