Follow B&H; they’re an iconic store on Manhattan’s west side and if you’re ever in NYC and you’re into tech, visit.

Facebook Live: Clear as day

Facebook has always made it easy for you to tell whether a live video is truly live or after the fact or scheduled to broadcast. Just look at the words next to the person’s name.

  • “is live” means the person’s live right now
  • “was live” is self-explanatory, e.g. you weren’t in time to catch it live
  • “plans to go live” means the person has a show on tap. Look for the convenient reminder button and click it so you don’t miss it

You know controversy isn’t my thing…

Jan. 31, 2017

You know controversy isn’t my thing, so I’ll start off with some news, then I’ll hit you with something which came into my blog’s email inbox.

Going after the entire $37 billion CRM market – Good luck

Okay, so the below info came into my blog’s email inbox. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with it because the issue is complicated, though some would have you believe otherwise. Sharing it with you all:

“Tech:NYC [1/30/2017] sent a letter to President Trump from more than 400 leaders of technology companies and investors in New York detailing the long-term damage his Executive Order on immigration could have on the United States economy. The letter [is] at, where it will be updated as more names are added.

Tech:NYC’s Executive Director, Julie Samuels, also authored a blog post about why so many in New York’s tech community were compelled to write the President. Tech:NYC represents the city’s fast-growing, entrepreneurial high-tech industry with government, civic institutions, in business and public policy forums, and the media. Its primary goal is to continue to attract tech talent and jobs to NYC, to support the growth of the technology sector, and to increase civic engagement by leaders of the New York tech community.”
