Here I am on thecrisisshow.com!

Here is what I am reading today:

“Who doesn’t want to be more organized?

With so many things happening at once, it can be difficult to keep track of everything that’s going on. Thankfully, many developers know this, and there are numerous apps designed to improve organization and workflow and do everything else in-between. “

“So Adidas have been busy making high-tech shoes, as you’d expect, but then they did this… They created Real-Time Tweet Shoes, using a pair of their red adiPower Barricade shoes complete with a mini LED screen and processor so athletes can receive tweets of support straight into their shoes. Cool right? Well no, I’m not sure it is? Perhaps it’s just late at night as I write this, but I can’t even remotely begin to imagine how this would be useful or a good product experience?!”

“How are nurses and physicians using their smartphones and tablets for their job search? It turns out a lot more than we realized.”

“Perhaps the most interesting statistic in the infographic below is that 77 percent of college students use desktops or laptops rather than mobile devices for social networking. Surely this will change over the next few years with the proliferation of smartphones. According to Bright Side of News, 1 billion people will own a smartphone by 2015. A recent study by Test Kitchen suggests that more than half of surveyed college students already own smartphones. Considering that smartphone use and social media use are growing together, we expect that this infographic will look very different in a few years.”
