I remember it was in HomeEc class. The year and grade escapes me. But it was at JB Tyrrell Senior Public School in Scarborough. Wayne Cuffe was able to recite the full dialogue of the movie, Terminator.
Wayne also liked to make people laugh. But he wasn’t one of the cool kids. He was different. And I liked different. I still do. So when social media came around I naturally followed many old school mates including Wayne. He was always happy. But it felt real. He’s still into pop culture. His workouts even follow the style of his favourite superheroes. When he travels he shares stories of the people he meets and those that inspire him. And he always shares photos of his wife, Elizabeth. And GROOT. After more than twenty years we meet again.
Welcome to the studio, Wayne and Elizabeth Cuffe.

The city of Philadelphia has an amazing mural arts program. According to their website,
For 30 years, Mural Arts has united artists and communities through a collaborative process, rooted in the traditions of mural-making, to create art that transforms public spaces and individual lives. Mural Arts engages communities in 50–100 public art projects each year, and maintains its growing collection through a restoration initiative. Core Mural Arts programs such as Art Education, Restorative Justice, and Porch Light yield unique, project-based learning opportunities for thousands of youth and adults.
Recently, we took a road trip that included Philadelphia.
Here are some of the photos we took of the wonderful and amazing murals in Philadelphia: https://goo.gl/photos/cDnZ8HBTTGr2CFmQ8
I’m in Taipei, Taiwan for a few days. Yeah, I know. Not long enough. I’m checking out the technology scene which is one of the largest in this part of the world.
Yesterday, I did lots of walking around the city and even hired a tour guide to take me around to some of the “touristy” places.
Here’s some of the places that I visited:
- National Palace Museum
- Chih-Fu Temple
- Taipei 101
- Discovery Center of Taipei
- Night Market

Last week I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to my good friend Gregg. For those who don’t know, Gregg Tilston is the Global Social Media Leader at Flight Centre. Besides being a good friend, he’s a very smart guy when it comes to web marketing and social media.
In this episode, Gregg and host, Karim Kanji, discuss:
– The social media strategy and tactics he helps lead and promote at Flight Centre
– Earned media vs paid media on Facebook
– The importance of understanding engagement, measurement and metrics
– What Flight Centre is learning from social media security
– The value (or lack thereof) of social media influence rating tools such as Klout and Kred
