The same people who brought you “Did You Know 3.0″ present an extremely good argument for the idea that digital media is killing traditional media.
My friend from college, Fouad Siblini, just sent me this study photo from GWU College Crew! Ha ha!
I have been reading Dan Brown‘s The Lost Symbol since it came out yesterday while on machines at the gym and I must say that my brothers at Naval Lodge #4, one of the 39 lodges of Washington, DC, Freemasonry, are correct: The Lost Symbol is going to generate a lot of interest in Freemasonry in the next few months. Here’s a little article/post that David Johnson wrote to address the book’s topic and focus on Washington Freemasonry, Freemasons, and Washington as a Masonic symbol herself, Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol and Freemasonry in DC
The release of Dan Brown’s new book The Lost Symbol is bound to raise some questions and interest about Freemasonry in Washington DC. The Masonic Society has set up a site at www.freemasonlostsymbol.com/ that answers a number of questions and provides clear and accurate information about Freemasonry.
We also recommend people seeking more information read and listen to this 2007 story from NPR. Reporter Rachel Martin visited Naval Lodge on Capitol Hill and spoke with officers Alan Patterson, Michael Webb and David Johnson about modern freemasonry. Parts of Secrets of the Freemasons, a National Geographic special, were filmed at Naval Lodge.
Legends and stories are fun, and we enjoy them too. But the true story is more meaningful and deeper than any fiction and it is no secret at all. Freemasonry improves the lives of everyone it touches. And not just the lives of the men who join the fraternity: Caring for children in Shriner‘s hospitals, improving schools, or even fostering democracy, Freemasons work together to better our communities and the world every day through faith, hope and charity.
Facebook has been making money for developers of applications for a while now, but it has finally gone cash flow positive for itself as well.
Facebook has two very big pieces of news that they announced today at TechCrunch50. The first: They have crossed 300 million users worldwide now, extending their lead as the biggest social network. The second: They are now cash flow positive. Yes, from this point forward, Facebook is making money.
This is good news for all of the social media marketers, because a cash flow positive social network is a social network that will continue to operate. It means there’s a stable platform to develop for, grow on, and use.
