Transformers Movie Review

06 · 26 · 09

by @katiedoyletransformers-movie

People people PEOPLE!

Have you seen this movie? You haven’t?
Well let me tell ya, you’re in for a treat.

You know the kind you get from the dentist after he drills into your teeth? The ones that are worth, like, a penny. The ones that you get bored with after two seconds and then want to smash under a car but they DON’T BREAK BECAUSE THEY ARE FAR TOO RESILIENT! That is what the experience of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was like. It’s all shiny and new but once you get into it…awful. Just awful. I’ve seen a lot of bad movies and bad television and bad everything, but I’ve always felt like I grew from the experience. The only thing growing from this experience is Michael Bay’s bank account and many a geeks fury. I want my three hours back. Read the rest of this entry ?

Geek Girls Network: When did you first become interested in Web Site Design?

Selene Bowlby: I was first introduced to the internet back in high school, where all I had access to were text-based freenets and bulletinselenebowlby board services. It wasn’t long before I created my first (terribly designed) web site which was hosted in the Geocities Paris and Soho neighborhoods.

Although I majored in graphic design in college, at this point the internet was nothing more than a hobby for me. My career goal at that time was creating designs for print, such as advertisements, corporate identity, brochures, etc.

As I dabbled more in the emerging technology of the internet, my interest in the web grew tremendously. By the time I graduated, I was 100% positive that I wanted to focus on web site design and development.

WordPress for the N00BIE who wants to be the GURU

06 · 18 · 09

By @Pavlina20

WordPress is hands-down the leader for web publishing. It is the Mac-daddy, the best, and the most awesome. I started out my wee home on the internet with blogspot account, then that turned into Blogger (owned by Google) and I just didn’t have the freedom there to do what I wanted very easily. I am no code master. To this day when I need to change my template I have a list of resources that I must go-to for the proper code. Whoa, let me back up. Templates, did I say? Yes. Template. Welcome to the world of WordPress. Read the rest of this entry ?

Marketing Strategy Needs SEO

06 · 17 · 09

By Lisa Kaslyn

Many of the businesses I speak with share some perplexity when it comes to their Inbound Marketing strategy, and its primary tactic, search engine optimization (SEO). Here’s a simplified way of looking at it: If traditional marketing is about pushing information – sometimes intrusively- out to customers, (i.e., advertising, trade shows, telemarketing, direct mail, and email) then inbound or new marketing is more about making your business findable in a world where customers have more control over what information they receive and how they receive it.

Geek Girls Network: Tell me about receiving the AV Woman of the Year Award. Has receiving this award helped your bridgetclinebusiness or FAVE?

Bridget Cline: Winning the inaugural Women in AV award was huge for me!  Although I joked that it was a “one horse race”, there are so many incredibly talented women in our field, and I was shocked to find-out that I had won!  My assistant and mentee Kristen Jeffries nominated me, based on the criteria of professional achievement in the AV field as well as a commitment to helping other women succeed in our industry. 

I’m not sure if this has helped my company grow (I think my current clients already know they’re with the best *grin*), but it has certainly helped give FAVE more credibility and press.  That’s my passion, and it was just perfect timing – total synchronicity! Read the rest of this entry ?
