Minnesota Craft Brewers: Who’s making social media work?

from Communications Conversations by Arik Hanson

Today I thought we’d take a look at some of those breweries and see how they’re using social media to their advantage–or disadvantage. Who’s doing things right? And, who could use a little help? Here’s a look at just a few of the crafts brewers in town and what they’re doing with social.

Republican meteorologist to Mitt Romney: How you can help me and my family

by Paul Douglas on Neorenaissance

As a Republican business owner, entrepreneur, meteorologist and father of two upbeat, optimistic boys, I may not fit the stereotype of a “global warming alarmist.”  I’m an Evangelical Christian.

In Minneapolis-St. Paul, it is clear that airport taxi cab drivers are required to lack The Knowledge about the street network. Actually knowing where things are must be disqualifying. The only qualification is that one arrived at the airport yesterday oneself, without transportation, and in exchange for volunteering to drive a cab, they let you. The only locations airport cabbies know are downtown Minneapolis, (which I can reach by transit), and perhaps St. Paul. The only roads they know are limited access.
