Stomach bugs and beer don't mix.

But taking the night off and still receiving a pay packet don't mix either.

I don't think I ever missed a night in all the years I DJed both in the UK and Australia. At certain periods I was DJing up to three nights a week and holding down a full time job, so there was very little time to be sick. DJing can be a rain, hail or shine type gig, particularly when you've carved out that niche for yourself.

Social media is no different. Blogging requires constant attention, otherwise the audience will drift away. Quite often, I have to force myself to produce a couple more entertaining and researched posts even though I don't feel particularly inspired, awake or even well.

But something tells me Kent Brockman and I have different definitions of the kind of ant that will lead this revolution. Yes, the ants will take over the world.

SOCIAL MEDIA  borg.jpg

I love it when popular culture memes slide over into the general lexicon. One such word that seems to be making the transition from fiction to fact is 'borg'. Just recently, I've come across the word a couple of times - not in reference to the Star Trek villains, but as a descriptive word aimed at large companies. Scott Heiferman, founder of Meetup, is quoted by Jeff Jarvis in his new book What Would Google Do?, talking about the insurance industry, where he refers to "the corporate borg (AIG)" and "the government borg (social security)".
