Cleveland People

It's official!

After over a year of "soft" releases, ClevelandPeople.Com has officially launched.

We had a terrific launch party at Margaret Wong's offices and a diverse and representative group of people attended.

Some great photos

Here's one I like of Councilman Mike Polensek and Mansfield Frazier.

Nice spread (from Pearl of the Orient) too!

Jessica Biel is dangerous

McAfee Inc. reported that searches for the 27-year-old actress are more likely to lead to online threats such as spyware and viruses than searches for any other celebrity.

McAfee said fans searching for the actress have a one-in-five chance of ending up at a Web site designed to damage one's computer. Its the third annual report on the subject from McAfee, which last year found that Brad Pitt was the "most dangerous" celeb online.

"Cybercriminals are star watchers, too," said Jeff Green, senior vice president of McAfee's product development. "They latch onto popular celebrities to encourage the download of malicious software in disguise."

Following Biel in the report, in order, were Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Brady and Jessica Simpson.

McAfee noted President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are curiously safe searches, ranking no. 34 and no. 39, respectively

Steak 101

OK, I can tell a T-bone. It's got a T-bone (duh). But I must admit I don't really know a Delmonico from a Porterhouse.

But Ed Jesse from Old World Meats in Euclid does. He and his wife Sharon explained the different steaks (including why some are more expensive) in a short video for us.

Check it out.

Anyone else getting hungry?

Valdis Krebs - a different view

Valdis Krebs is a smart guy. Not only that, he brings some different opinions and strategies to the whole Social Media discussion.

While many are busy collecting followers (as if there was an award for it!) Valdis is very selective and even purges followers occasionally.

As a scientist working on network maps, Valdis' ideas can give a productivity boost to your Twitter and other Social Media strategies.

Watch some highlights and learn more in a short video from the CoolTwitter Conference.

CAP Milestone - Volunteer Video

Computers Assisting People (CAP) has refurbished and donated over 15,000 PCs to over 380 Cleveland schools and non-profits.

To celebrate, we created a short 3 minute video featuring some of our volunteers.

Pretty in Pink

I just got my driver's license renewed and - gulp - it's pink!

Of course people are never happy about their driver's license photo but this is the first time I've had a complaint about the background.
