Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
I am Alex Priest. I am a DC technologist, marketer, social media user, designer, student, professional, entrepreneur, and more. I love to learn, create and explore. I want to have good stories to tell when I'm old.
This is my unofficial free space. I'll post things I like, things I design, and a little of what I learning along the way. Enjoy.
When I helped launch Uber early 2010 I didn’t really see myself as an operations guy. I am just a...
I cannot express how much Business Cat is one of my top 5 memes. Maybe number one. Not even certain. All I know is that the person who created business cat is a genius.
Here are some of my favorites:
My cat Lucy can’t get enough of sitting on paper. If she had a choice between the nicest most…
Love this song.

Me: Did you know there is a greeting card association?
Morgan: Not surprising. How else are they going to lobby for tax-free glitter and stamps? These are important things in our day and age.
Morgan: You should know I'm only half sarcastic at this point because I'm a huge fan of stationery. But that aside...
Morgan: My point is, go greeting card association.
It never ceases to amaze me how many smart, attractive girls end up with total douchenozzles. There’s got to be a flowchart for this.

I hope to use this blog to explore the nexus between new media and the 2012 Presidential Campaign- at all different levels. To start, here’s a very superficial look at how the candidates are using Facebook. The following are the number of “likes” as of July 09, 2011 for each of the declared Republican presidential candidates:
- Mitt Romney 1,031,700
- Michelle Bachmann 414,107
- Herman Cain 147,795
- Newt Gingrich 142,056
- Gary Johnson 126,426
- Tim Pawlenty 103,049
- Ron Paul 29,767
- Rick Santorum 23,374
- Jon Huntsman 9,111
- Fred Karger 2,048
- Thaddeus McCotter 1,009
- Andy Martin 568 (Facebook Friends)
One of the above will compete against President Obama in the 2012 election. As of July 09, the President has 21 million, 968 thousand 390 (21,968,390) likes.

Good stuff, although I disagree on the first one. I’m pretty sure an exponential increase in sharing is not only likely, but probably underestimating this. We’re witnessing the biggest transformation in peer to peer, social communication since… well, possibly since ever. Social media (not just the platforms, but the ideals and philosophies behind it) have fundamentally changed the way we interact with the world and with each other, and mobile technology is only exacerbating the impact.
1. Facebook’s numbers are slowing, even though they just hit 750,000,000 users. (Where was that announcement?) Of course, they are spinning this decline in advancement as a change of interest. Zuck wants to literally exponentially increase sharing by 2X ever year. Boasting a 1024X increase in…
