HR’s Gotta Go Social

At Domo we are in the midst of a social experiment. I mean really a true “social” networking experiment. Our staff is trying out just about every type of social tool out there from likes of TweetDeck to Codecademy. It’s actually pretty interesting to see that our admin assistants are way more “social” than our …

A Perspective from the Petri Dish

When I was in architecture school, I did a project inspired by the artist Piet Mondrian. In the course of my work, I came across this quote from Mondrian,  “I don’t want pictures, I want to find things out.” A decade later, I didn’t expect to find a parallel between Mondrian and our CEO and …

Reality Check

When I first heard the idea of the #domosocial experiment, I immediately thought, “Good thing I joined Twitter. Otherwise I may be a lot more behind the times in this meeting.”  I was thinking to myself, “I am on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, I have a blog, I use several online photo sharing sites and I …

Who has time to be social?

Like many Domo social blogs, mine starts out the same: “When I first heard about the Domo social experiment…” I was worried I’d get sucked into the Facebook vortex that I was in when I first joined in December 2008. Back then I would spend hours finding all of my relatives (I have a lot) …

From Casual Contributor to Cyberstalker – The Parable of the Weeds

As I stand out on the back steps looking over what can only be described as a small thriving jungle, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed. The yard has been completely overrun with weeds. I know it needs to be done. I know it will make my wife, my neighbors, and even my …

Privacy Concerns Go Out the Window When It Comes to Winning (And Why Foursquare is Social Crack)

Foursquare is one of the social apps we are using as part of the #domosocial experiment. I’ve been aware of foursquare for years, have met the founder and senior execs who are fantastic — but never felt I needed foursquare to improve my life. I’ve always had an uneasy feeling about broadcasting my whereabouts to …

The Data Warehouse Dilemma

As head of client services, I get to partner with our customers who are trying to solve real problems with Domo. A lot of their action is driven by end-user observations: our reporting is too difficult to use, too non-existent, too slow, too limited, too ugly and so on. But we also work with quite …

So much more…

I enjoy playing and watching sports. Sometimes I have an opportunity to really watch teams and players develop. When I have a chance to follow a sport in more detail it leads me to really enjoy the games more. Better understanding the players, the coaches, their history and their struggles makes the games richer and …

Learning to love Twitter: A social media expert reflects on how he got it wrong

This is not how I thought the future would turn out. Eleven years ago, I began work with my co-author Shayne Bowman on a paper for the American Press Institute called We Media: How Audiences Are Shaping the Future of News and Information. It was downloaded nearly 500,000 times and eventually became a sort of …
