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:
