I start a new gig this week. While I’m sad to leave the comfort of my last job, I’m excited to take on a new challenge. Before accepting the new position, I debated staying at my old job. I weighed the pros and cons of both and discussed it all with my wife. Despite it […]

Did the headline get your attention? Would you have been offended if I would’ve used the full F-word? Last week, there was a bit of an online flare up when the employee of an agency my company* uses for one of its brands inadvertently tweeted from the brand Twitter account rather than his own — […]

One of the things I’ve noticed is that there are online personas for people that clearly define themselves as a certain type of Mom or Dad. My friend Elizabeth calls herself “Busymom“, shedding some light on the daily ins and outs of what it’s like to run a hectic household. EOT’s own Curtis Silver is […]

It’s all over the Internet. There are studies here and there and way over there about the Nielsen Power Moms (link opens PowerPoint) and influence of women in social media. Those are just studies and research. Let me show you and prove to you why today’s dads are the real online power brokers. Back in […]

Men, I want to bring to your attention that there’s a “viral” status update game going on via Facebook where your wife, girlfriend or female friends might change their status to a color. It’s to help women spread breast cancer awareness – and I totally get it. So let’s help play along. Update your favorite […]

Recently a high school friend of mine opted to delete his Facebook account. His reasoning for doing so was never explained and he announced the move well in advance, leading to that inevitable barrage of “Oh no! Please don’t go! Facebook won’t ever be the same without you!” comments and wall posts. This was actually […]

To paraphrase Chris Rock “they don’t grade life decisions, but if you have the chairman of an adult video company telling you that you’ve got some hot clips and that he wants to do business, you ****ed up.” But what can parents do to help their kids avoid former Miss California Carrie Prejean’s dilemma? A good grounding in the new Birds and Bees, including thinking twice about what you send out in an e-mail, SMS or Facebook post — and no pictures, please!

There’s a thousand reasons why The Art of Manliness is one of my favorite reads but this post is one of them Look: The handsome one is Capaneus. Through him the lightning went. A man of means, he never flaunted his wealth but kept an attitude no prouder than a poor man’s. He avoided people […]

I have around 400 Facebook friends. I’ve “dated” (loosely defined) just over 3 percent of them, by my calculation. Facebook is just a way of keeping in touch; I certainly don’t see it as a lurking threat to my marriage. Grown-ups know that “you can’t go home again,” to borrow a phrase from Thomas Wolfe…or, at least, that “you can’t go out again.”

We live in a business climate where burning the mid-night oil is expected, which can be perceived as an attribute of success. The other edge of the sword dictates that we dads need to be home at a decent time in order to chill out with the kids(and not just for the hour before they […]
