  1. The Art of Diplomacy in the 21st Century : Contemporary Challenges to an Ancient Profession

    The Art of Diplomacy in the 21st Century: Contemporary Challenges to an Ancient Profession March 16, 2014

    Diplomacy, one of the prime human techniques to manage relations between politically organized groups, has undergone a profound transformation in the past few decades, due in large part to the information revolution, globalization, and the increased relevance of new non-state actors in international affairs. Does traditional diplomacy still matter in today’s world? How do diplomats and governments react to these changes? What skills are required to be a competent diplomat in the 21st century? With a special focus on the UAE, this lecture explores how concepts of public diplomacy and soft power have steadily gained significance in international relations.

  2. Why I left the ACA and what’s next…

    During The Atheist Experience on Sunday, October 2nd, I announced that it would be my final show and that I would be leaving the Atheist Community of Austin.

    This live stream, scheduled for 4pm Central on October 9th will address the story behind this decision as well as what comes next.

    Some reminders: 1. I'm not asking anyone else to leave the ACA or stop supporting the ACA, you do what you feel is best. Support me, them, both, neither…but I'm giving my reasons for why I'm no longer supporting them.

    1. No one should harrass or bother the ACA about this, no matter how you feel about the information. There are still great people there, doing good, even if it's an organization I no longer wish to work with.

    2. My former cohosts are AMAZING people - do not call in to ACA shows and ask the presenters to weigh in on this issue. The presenters on AxP were informed that I was leaving and, in part, why…but presenters on other shows were not informed and do not know all of the isseus (part of the problem).

    3. I'm not sure if I'l be taking questions or not - the delay makes it difficult. But I do not have plans to address this issue after today. Getting back to work is the primary goal.

    Periscope is smoking hot right now! Bloggers and marketers are singing the praises of the budding app, and I’ve been asked why I haven’t started live broadcasting. After all, I’ve had some success with YouTube, so wouldn’t this live streaming video app be the next logical step for me? What’s the deal? The truth is, I actually LOVE Periscope as a viewer, but haven’t done any broadcasts. I made a vow to myself when it comes to jumping on “the next big thing” online. You’ll have to listen to the podcast below to find out why I haven’t scoped, and how I will track the success (or lack thereof) when I do in 2016. Not into podcasts? No worries. I’ve got the transcript for ya right here. You can also download the mp3 (right-click and choose “Save As”) and listen later. So tell me. Are YOU on Periscope? If so, what specifically are you doing, and how is it helping your bottom line? Be sure to leave your name and strategy below so I can follow you! I’m really interested in following “scopers” who are using a consistent and trackable strategy. Also feel free to share names of people you enjoy following. Happy Holidays!

    In This Episode What is Periscope? Why I’m not using it yet What I like and dislike about it Why I disagree about it being hard to monetize How I plan to use it for promotion and track conversions in 2016 0

  6. How an introverted developer built software to grow relationships – with Zvi Band

    I’ve got a buddy named Liston who does freelance work. He has to stay in touch with potential customers who are going to hire him to do copywriting and other marketing. Obviously just because you contact someone one day doesn’t mean they’re going to sign up. So he freaking loves Contactually, the company today’s guest cofounded. He can’t stop showing me how it helps him stay in touch with people in a realistic way so he doesn’t drop off their radar. He’s the kind of person who gets really, really excited about Contactually because it increases his sales. The ability to stay in touch the way that Liston has, that’s the heart of the software that we’re about to talk about. Today’s guest is Zvi Band. He’s the cofounder of Contactually, a relationship marketing platform that helps professionals stay in touch.
