I talk local search for Boomertechtalk
Ian Lurie Oct 5 2010
Linda Sherman and co. just launched a new blog called Boomertechtalk. The site offers everything from backup advice to marketing tips.
Linda interviewed me about local search and posted my semi-coherent ramblings on the blog:
If I’m a little incoherent, I’ll note that the previous 48 hours included:
- Me recovering from King Kamehameha’s Revenge. 2010 was The Year of the Gut Crisis for me.
- 12 hours later, me spending 2 hours bent over the rail, hurking my guts up, on a ‘sunset cruise’ that involved (no exaggeration) 10+ foot seas and the crew yelling ‘WE MADE IT’ after we got back to shore.
- Plus, me being out in direct sunlight, which, theoretically, might have caused me to vanish in a screaming puff of smoke.
