Digital Footprint

I would consider myself a pretty tech savvy person. I have been great with computers since I had my first one at the age of 12. I have followed the latest trends. I read the right magazines. I am considered an early adopter and an innovator. Etc.

However, since I moved to Mexico to start a company and I dedicated so much of my time to getting it started and running, I missed out on this whole social media and digital footprint stuff. It wasn't until I started my MBA that I was reintroduced to the subject. I have to admit, it has taken me a while to fully immerse myself into it, but now that I am discovering how important having a digital footprint really is, I am trying to get updated as soon as possible. In two weeks, I have become an active blogger on my MBA Admissions Site (http://management.bu.edu/graduate/graduate-life/student-blog/), I have started twitting @carlpalme, and I received a #klout score of 26 which I hope is good for a noob.

Anyway, we are all so incredibly connected, that it is important to stay up to date with any and all current technologies. I am proud to say that even though I was out of the loop for a little bit, I was able to jump right back in. I will be blogging more about the MBA and my discoveries with social media, about my life on a boat, and about any and all random things. For now, here is a picture of my wife, my dog, and me on the Charles River:


  1. What would you say is the capability of this blog?

  2. Definitely the People capability. Well, maybe the tech capability can work as well. Wait, how about the Org capability, would that work as well? Oh man, I'm not sure anymore.

    Oh well, check out my rowing capability!
