    By Joanne Gore We live in an “always on” society. We take selfies. We share everything. But when does it go too far? I was taught that it was rude to interrupt someone when they’re speaking. And it’s particularly rude to blatantly disengage by, for example, texting/interfacing with you phone (or other handheld electronic device). And yet, it is perfectly acceptable to spend entire seminars glued to your device so that you can monitor the twitter stream. Now before you go ahead and abandon this post because it has to do with twitter, and you have no use for it, consider this: Twitter…

We don’t need to market,” was the particular statement that is still ringing in my ears. He runs a locally-focused printing operation that is struggling to come up with new customers. Like many in the printing industry, he’s seen volumes decrease in the past few years as products that were once mainstays have vanished and content has gone online.

We scheduled a conference, and met with her young teacher, fresh out of an education program at a local university.
