I’m a high-tech marketing and product management professional who writes on a variety of subjects on 5 different blogs:
- Technology Trends
- Information Explosion
- World Travel
- Popular Culture
Here’s how can you subscribe: Tech Trends is a discussion about current and future technologies and their possible implications. Current discussions are about Web 2.0, Social Media, Google, the iPhone 3G and some innovative technologies from other companies.
Info Exponential focuses on information — Big Data — how it is created and used, intending to cover subjects that address the phenomenon of exponentially explosive information growth, how that growth is accelerating in modern times, and various companies’ role in addressing it.
Ignorance Abroad is my travel blog, where I feature stories and photos of my world travel. After almost 2 million miles of travel, I’ve got some interesting and amusing stories of my adventures abroad. Recent stories include trips to Lima, Peru and Italy . There will be more stories coming about Tuscany, Venice, and Rome.
Bill Petro remains my primary blog, which houses my archives , and my new History of the Holidays articles. I write a few new ones each month or so, and update my previous articles as I re-publish them each year during the holidays.
Culture Vulture features reviews of movies, concerts, and theatre. I write movie reviews as soon as I see them, which is usually the day they come out (or before). I wrote one for Pixar’s WALL-E and wrote reviews of Batman: The Dark Knight and James Bond: Quantum of Solace before you saw reviews elsewhere.
Oh, and two more things: Occasionally (very), I have included a Podcast at the end of an article. You can identify these by the icon at the bottom. This is the indication that I’ve created an “Audio Version.” And, I have a channel at the iTunes Store that features these Podcasts in iPod format as well. The name of the channel is, ironically enough, History of the Holidays.
Thanks for reading. The future will be history… and so much more.
Bill Petro, your friendly neighborhood historian, high-tech, culturevulture, traveler
