Masquertweet Update

Yes – Plans for #Masquertweet are proceeding. Everything is shaping up quite nicely and we expect to have a venue announcement in the next few days.

But, even more exciting, I’m pleased (ok, thrilled really) to announce that all proceeds from Masquertweet will go to 12for12K (or more specifcally their selected July charity).

So, how do I look in blue?

What’s 12for12K you ask – well if you’ve been under a twitter rock (twock?) for the last few months…go here for the best possible explanation.

Over the last few weeks I’ve had the sheer joy of tweeting, talking and even meeting with some of the lovely 12for12K people – @rachelakay, @ginalaguardia, @arikhanson and of course the 12for12K ringleader @dannybrown (there’s too many to name here, but it’s a start). This should go without saying, but just in case – follow them ….I’ll wait.

Anyway, while working on plans for #Masquertweet @prdude, @aerocles and I realized that in addition to having piles of fun at the event there was room to do some good. Knowing the fine 12for12K people we reached out and things progressed from there.

So know, in addition to having a blast, you can do some good for the world at this July’s first-ever Masquertweet.

For full details on the event –, RSVP at Some details are still up in the air, but we’re always looking for additional sponsors, tie-ins, giveaways or other fundraising ideas. If you or your clients may be interested in playing in the sandbox with us, please do not hesitate to be in touch – prcog1 [at]

More details to be posted here as they become available, so keep an eye out and RSVP (even as a maybe) and we’ll be in touch.


A very emotional post (Part 1)

So this is a very difficult post for me.

It’s an issue I’ve considered long and hard over the last couple of weeks. Some of the deliberations you all shared last Saturday as I wandered around lower Manhattan awaiting a sign from Sunnyvale, CA.
Yes – I’ve finally decided on the newest iPhone over the Pre.
First let’s go back one step. I Love Palm.
More precisely, I loved Handspring a company created by the original Palm founders that made cheaper PalmOS handhelds. They were innovative in the boring PDA market from Day 1. Multi-colored handhelds, the Springboard slot, the Edge (one of the sexiest PDA’s I’ve ever seen), and finally the Treo line.
Yes – the Treo – up until last week the only real surviving remnant of a product Palm had was actually developed by an acquired company. (Yes, I’m ignoring the Tungsten line intentionally – the PDA w/o phone market is quickly evaporating as prices come down).
As far as I’m concerned Palm was Handspring post acquisition.
And when I say I love Palm I mean, I love Palm. As in we’ve always been a Palm household – multiple Handsprings, multiple Treos. I even have some Palm stock in my portfolio.
(next part is all about my Apple love….this post got to be entirely too long first time around so breaking it up here….)
