It’s already a winner at half way to their goal. It’s safer than a standard skateboard. It is a child sized board that is wide and more stable. The wheel is lower in the center and it better for a child who wants to sit or lay down on the board. The boards come in natural wood, white board or chalk board. They can design their board over and over again. Jordan is not new at this, he is experienced in creating skateboard that people love. Now it’s time to go into production and manufacturing.

Purpose boards are back in the news with their new venture that is a SAFE LONGBOARD for kids!

The BuddyList Social Network is an anonymous alternative to Facebook that doesn’t sell your personal data to any one. BuddyList purports to be a community that doesn’t invade your privacy. BuddyList believes a social network should be about staying connected with your friends and family and having fun.

Quoted in “Wikipedia,” the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) supports BuddyList’s primary reason to jump away from Facebook by identifying two personal information aggregation techniques, called “connections” and “instant personalization,” which assure that anyone has access even to personal information that you may not have intended to be publicly available.
This is how it works, you create a “Connection” to most of the things that you click a “Like button” for, and Facebook will treat those relationships as public information. For example, if you “Like” a Page on Facebook, that then creates a public connection. If you Like a movie or restaurant on a non-Facebook website (and if that site is using Facebook’s OpenGraph system), that creates a public connection either to the applicable Page on Facebook or to the affiliated website.

The Sarah Palin/Gabrielle Gifford’s Publicity Connection

A lot of people were horrified to hear of Gifford being shot. Social media was buzzing with questions and updates and quickly came to the conclusion that Sarah Palin has somehow induced it. Many journalist wrote about her style of interview and how she had Democrats in ‘Crosshairs’ on her website. They felt it might be dangerous and many said so. Regardless of which side you fall on, Sarah Palin now has some bad publicity to deal with. Here are some of the things she could think about doing.

300px-Gov._Sarah_Palin_in_Dover_cropped_2,_NHIf you are in business long enough you will have to deal with some bad publicity. Everyone has unhappy customers. Some unhappy customers go to the press or put it on a website to complain. I personally have complained via the web about a company I was unhappy with.  You have to realize it is part of business. You can choose to let the bad publicity sit there. What will happen? Well, you cannot control the consequences. You might have a lot of potential customers turn away from you. You could open yourself up for other type of lawsuits because people see vulnerability. If you never clear it up, you will never know when it will come back. I never recommend ignoring bad publicity, especially in an emergency.

I do recommend being ready for these emergencies. You can do a lot of things to help mitigate the backlash. You can make sure only one spokes person from the company talks to media. Right now, as I write this article, Sarah Palin is advocating that people pray. Will it answer all her detractors? No, but it will make some people feel that she is concerned about the trend that is happening and her contribution to it. For a lot of people that is enough. After all, she did not force the man to pull the trigger.  Palin did have the courage to speak for herself and not allow a spokes person to speak for her during this tragic time. Having a spokes person speak for you when bad things are happening makes you look guilty. No matter how great the spokesperson is, the public will feel you are avoiding their gaze because of guilt.
