Hi, all. My name is Russell Foltz-Smith. I am techie, entrepreneur, analyst, math guy, dad, husband, baller, gamer, goof ball and all sorts of other things.
Social Mode is my attempt at writing down my analysis and thoughts (others contribute now too!) on media, society, business, and human behavior. I’ve been involved in projects in the last 8 years requiring deep thinking in how media, connectedness and behavior come together to form businesses, change culture, improve education. Rather than pine away in solitude, it’s now time to blog it out and get some discussion going.
This is not a tech blog nor a pundit sorta thing. It’s an integrated approach to connecting the dots in our business and social lives. Sometimes technical, sometimes academic, sometimes whitepapery, sometimes buzzworthy. The goal is to ask and answer questions with ever increasing accuracy and drive at what’s really going on in this complex web/world.
