How to become a brewmaster

My friend Jay has been a Brewmaster for some time now.  I remember going to a party with him last summer.  We didn’t know many people at this party and eventually, someone walked up to us and asked us what we did for a living.  I told him I work in IT and Jay mentioned he was a brewer.  Suddenly a circle formed around us and we were bombarded with questions.  Not computer questions but questions about beer!!!!  Questions like what is the best selling beer, and how does one become a Brewmaster? In a way, I guess it is every man’s dream to work in a brewery.    So I figured how to become a brewmaster would be a great article for this website. Continue reading

How Google+ Can Help Your Job Search

How Google+ Can Help You Land Your Next Job

How Google+ Can Help You Land Your Next Job

Like others, when Google+ first arrived, I signed up, tried it out, and never logged in again.

Several months went by, and I read that Google+ has more users than Twitter. I didn’t think that could be possible, I reasoned that this is probably due to the fact that many people have Gmail accounts, and as a consequence, a social profile was automatically created.

I recently downloaded the Google+ Android App and had a second look. I was presently surprised with the quality of content I was presented with.

Now, you may already be asking yourself why do I need another social networking account since I am already on Linkedin and Facebook? I would still encourage you to use LinkedIn and Facebook but let us not forget who dominates internet search.  One can only assume Google will, and has already, started integrating their Google+ results into their search.

Why was Google+ created?

Facebook, and Twitter, among others, are social networking sites that have great content. The problem is, that they are closed communities, where search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo cannot crawl them.  At one point, Google integrated Twitter in their search results, but that relationship has since ended.  Consequently, search engines are having issues bringing real-time search into your results.

For instance, at a major sporting event, Google cannot report fans opinions in real time. They can only report after a popular sports website publishes their results first, and then Google’s search engine has the task of finding and creating a link to it.  Yet, with Twitter or Facebook, you can see what people are saying in real time.

Student Debt is Killing Tech Entrepreneurship

Bill Gates co-founded Microsoft after dropping out of Harvard.  In his youth, personal computers were coming of age. He was given a small window of opportunity to participate in bringing PCs to users homes by creating an operating system.  Today Microsoft is one of the largest software producers in the world, employees thousands of people, and helps businesses on a daily basis.  Bill Gates was able to capitalize on this window because, at the time, he was not married, did not have children, and entered the market at the right time.

Will high tuition make tech entrepreneurship possible?

Will high tuition make tech entrepreneurship possible?

Mark Zuckerberg also dropped out of Harvard to build Facebook. Zuckerberg was born in 1984 and was in his twenties when social media became popular.  It was the perfect time to start Facebook, as there was limited competition in this field.  Zuckerberg acted quickly on his window of opportunity, and today Facebook connects millions of people around the world and is a great tool for businesses to communicate with their customers.
