One year ago, that third Monday in April, 2013, sure seemed normal out of the gate. I was still working at my old agency, Digital Influence Group. Our offices were at 53 State Street. Most people were in the office, or heading out early to go watch the Marathon. Some were on vacation due to [...]
This past week I got to guest lecture again in my old stomping ground, Tufts University. I had been doing that a bunch over the past couple of years, but given my new job at Edelman, I had to pass every invite. But when I saw a week when I was going [...]
Phew. What a trip.
