Don’t Vote Without Seeing This Video

Many of my family and friends are talking about the PBS Frontline program that aired two nights ago. It was all about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. According to PBS,  “it explored where they came from, how they lead and why they want one of the most difficult jobs imaginable.”

I watched the complete show. I urge you to watch it as well. It answers a lot of questions and gives you a better understanding of the two candidates. Thank you YouTube.

My Name In Lights

#tbt The year was 1979. BSR turntables did a promo on the Times Square scroll. Their ad agency arranged the whole thing. The creator, Bil Keane, is standing next to me. I wonder where he is now? Thank you Bil!


Presidential Candidates Tweets 

Since many DigiDame readers are not on Twitter, I thought it would be interesting to post the tweets of the two leading Presidential candidates. I tried to do an equal number from each, but Trump tweeted more often in a 24-hour period. 

It’s interesting to see how Twitter has become the official platform for comments. In many cases, Twitter has replaced press conferences, media alerts, and the distribution of official statements. 

It’s just too simple to tweet. 





The World We Live In 

My long time friend, Dick Krain, who was a big time executive at Grey Advertising for 30 plus years, sent me this video today because we always share interesting information. I just finished watching it. It is so exciting that we are living in a time when things occur at Internet speed. 

Many of us think the possibility of Donald Trump becoming President of the United States is absolutely ridiculous. One mystery: how does he produce productive, level-headed children? 

 Meet The Next Larry Page and Sergey Brin  
I met these two teenagers, ages 16 and 14, at CE Week today, a mini CES convention. They were among a handful of students who won awards for their digital inventions. When I asked them who they were, they answered “innovators.” Remember these two Dwight High School students. They have a technology that will allow you to attach a gizmo to your glasses and read everything people are mumbling. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for someone like me who misses a lot of words in loud restaurants. Bravo to these two unusual youngsters. 


Twitter Folks Respond To Donald Trump’s Obama Announcement

I did not edit the responses. Just copied and pasted the first to tweet. This blog post gives you a good idea of how Twitter works and how the tweets get posted.
