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

 

Photos: Visiting Taipei, Taiwan

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

thirdoceanTV | in conversation with Gregg Tilston of Flight Centre

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
