Feeling Thankful - Is there an App for That?

.Feeling Thankful - Is there an App for That?

I am thankful for mobile apps and social media that let me connect, and stay connected with so many kind people and friends.  Just yesterday my wife and I met up with a high school friend, Marti, we had not seen in 25 years.  I was in a business meeting in downtown Portland, Oregon for several hours, but was able to track their location and meet up with them later in the day via SMS and Google maps on my smartphone. This friendship was reestablished via Facebook.

Today we are meeting another high school friend, Candy, that we had lost contact with for decades, but we are now the closest of friends after connecting again via Facebook.

I record corny video commentaries and interviews with experts that many of you have started watching, but few have finished. This year I have recorded 67 videos (don't view them if you are allergic to corny).  My friends, when trying to bolster my ego call them "authentic," but they are most often corny. When traveling I use my iPhone to film them.  I can record, edit and upload my videos to a YouTube channel all from my iPhone that fits in my pocket.  I can bring you with me on my travels and into discusses with leading mobility experts around the globe.

Social media and mobile technologies has enabled a redneck, Boise, Idaho based, mobility obsessed former dairy farmer to travel to the corners of the earth on a regular basis sharing mobile and digital transformation strategies and research with companies.  This is just crazy to me, and for that I THANK YOU!!!!
