"Good technology is transparent", I like that. I was reading in Freakonomics how experts control the market by virtue of withholding information... not as much with the advent of the Internet.


Learning how to know when people are faking their technical acumen has been one of my best learned skills in my working career so far. People are intimidated by technology and some people in the IT industry love to perpetuate the mystery and better-than-you attitude. Good technology is transparent. It just works. Great technologists know this and help marketers create more conversations through tech.

To your point, I would recommend for bookmarking. Not only are your bookmarks "safe", but you can share your bookmarks with your network to benefit everyone.

Chris -- thank you for coming to the rescue with instructions. I will figure out if I can run Firefox with our firewall.

Mario -- you should have seen the look on my face this morning. I'm sure it was quite expressive. I was meek for a couple of hours. Thank you for offering to send me your bookmarks, that is very thoughtful and sweet.

Isn't this a great way to solve problems and share ideas? C'mon everyone, visit in the comments, let's keep the conversation going.
