What the Duck? Birds, Bread and Public Relations

I paid a visit to Boston Public Garden yesterday to distribute stale bread to the birds. Mallards, Canada geese, sparrows and pigeons, plus a few others I didn’t recognize (my name’s not Audubon, you know). All of them seemed happy to see me. Or, more to the point, all seemed curiously happy about the wads […]

Three Important Changes

Acronyms tend to overwhelm me; and I get anxious when I encounter unfamiliar ones, which is fairly often since we live in a world full of them. You can then imagine my predicament when I attended an information security seminar last week that ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) put on with ISSA (Information […]

Owel Shot!

I ride the MBTA Commuter Rail to North Station most days for work. I love riding on trains, but I have to admit that the view from my window isn’t always pretty. Prime real estate almost never abuts the railroad line, so the view often includes abandoned shopping carts, rusted cars and car parts, piles […]

It’s Not Always Easy, But It’s Worth It

Last week our newest CHENner, Mike Spinney, shared with the team an article he wrote for Inc. Magazine in 2006 called, “Learning to Love Networking.” The story of shy guy-turned master glad hander Reed Thompson struck a chord with me. Briefly, the article tells Reed’s story of growing from someone who dreaded attending networking events […]

And when that question comes, I relate an […]

“Surprise Me”

Team CHEN PR shared conversation with veteran tech scribe Evan Schuman this morning. Out of respect for Evan I won’t divulge the number of decades he has been toiling as a journalist, but in his own words it’s been long enough that he’s been able to do “every kind of journalism that won’t get you […]

Post RSA Recap…and Recovery

My friend and colleague Kevin Kosh has just about fully recuperated from his non-stop RSA Conference schedule last week—late nights that often involved banter over a variety of beverages and very early mornings. I suppose attending RSA is sort of like running a marathon. You strategize and train for months. Finally, when the big day […]
