When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on December 29th:
- The banality of vacation: Vacationing in Hawaii, for no reason except the obvious ones, is good politics because that authenticity is, these days, perhaps the most valuable political commodity. It will be interesting to see if Hawaii remains the “Western White House” after he takes office.
- White House Press Corps Faces Unique Challenges in Hawaii: For the White House press corps, covering Obama’s 13-day Hawaiian sojourn is a departure from past holidays hunkered down near President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Tex.
- Ewa Beach 96706: Ground zero for Hawaii foreclosures: An analysis of data provided by RealtyTrac, as well as anecdotal evidence from real estate experts, shows that the majority of foreclosure filings in Hawaii are on Oahu, and the majority of Oahu filings are for homes in Ewa Beach, Waipahu, Waianae, Kapolei and Aiea.
- Social Media is No Place for Robot Behavior | chrisbrogan.com: “If you’re too busy to be an actual human on a social network, don’t join another social network.” Don’t be a robot on Twitter.
