WDS in Portland

A World Domination Summit in three words

New York, a SuperAwesomeMicroProject and the Fish Slap

What a week! I’m just pausing now to catch my breath and the thought just occurred to me… …if I never started using Twitter, I never would have started blogging and I would never have imagined that one day I would be working for a blogger – let alone be heading to a conference in [...] Read More
