When TED Talks, I Listen

For those of you who aren’t familiar with TED Talks (Technology Entertainment and Design) you will probably be dieing to give me an e-hug after this one.

Tweet Smarts

If you haven’t heard of Twitter by now it’s likely that you get the bulk of your information via Morse Code and the computer is a foreign object to you.

Drive and Dasch

Chances are you’ve heard of the term dine and dash. It refers to the act of eating at a restaurant and leaving without paying the bill. Quite simply, it’s stealing.
