As you may have heard, the BCS National Championship was last week and Alabama absolutely rolled (see what I did there) over Notre Dame.  I wouldn’t have wanted to be in Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly’s shoes after that game—dealing with the media after a loss of that magnitude can’t be fun.  However, he...
I came across a great thought the other day in a book I was reading. It basically said that we should work from a place of rest instead of resting from work. (Selah, stop and think about that for a sec.) We talk about living balanced, intentional lives a lot around our office, and it...
Like most Americans, I have spent a lot of time over the last few weeks thinking through what I want out of the new year. 2012 was not a great year for me—from some aspects I caused to some brought about by external forces, I have been craving the fresh start a new year brings. As...
Well, 2012 has ended so I feel somewhat obligated to a year in review of the social media variety.  This year was truly the year that social media moved from a trend to a way of life, and even the way we do business.  Let’s reminisce! Pintrest was named the Best New Startup – it...
Dillan found this clip of performers Mike Song and KRNFX collaborating to make a video that seamlessly blends the worlds of dance and beatboxing.  What’s even more impressive is that everything was recorded and performed live. If you’ve ever wanted more statistical look at your personal Facebook page, check out this tool from Zeebly that Whitney found called...
Smart phones are wonderful, and just about everyone has one.  However, if they’re in the wrong hands they can do some serious damage—especially if those hands are of a young adolescent. Tech blogger and mother of five Jan Burley Hoffman seems to have found a solution.  This past Christmas, she gave her 13-year-old son Gregory...
Les Mis hit theaters this week and Ansley loved it. One of the things that makes it so special is that all of the singing was done live during filming. Check out this featurette for a look at how they did it:   Benj recently came across this site that features items so expensive you...
Ever wonder what makes Coca-Cola so special? It is, after all, only a soft drink. How does a soft drink create so much infatuation, enthusiasm, and loyalty? Being from Atlanta, I may be a bit more loyal than the average Coke fan, but I can honestly say that a drop of Pepsi hasn’t crossed my...

Several Fridays ago, we shared in Friday favorites about Living Walls, an organization seeking to create a dialogue in the city of Atlanta. They do this through a yearly conference held in Atlanta that puts developers and artists in the same room to talk about the issues that city spaces face. The founder, Monica Campana,...
