Blog Cases from 2005: Thomas Jones on Oklahoma Wine

Portals and KM

These cases have not appeared on this blog before  When I interviewed Thomas Jones in 2005, he and his wife Dianne operated Vine by Design, a business providing web sites and related services to local wineries and his parents owned one of Oklahoma's first local wineries, Nuyaka Creek Winery. After experiencing a number of frustrations with email lists and the limitations of a traditional web site, they started the Oklahoma Wine News blog.

Collaborative Thinking

But I'm pretty sure that this will come down to UConn and Oklahoma for the final with UConn winning - pretty obvious. Some chance perhaps that a Baylor or Louisville slip by Oklahoma but that's a stretch.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Portals and KM

Like many post-WWII couples, they started a family right away and I was born ten months later in Oklahoma, where they moved after my father's discharge from the military. This is a break from my SXSW notes. Many celebrations are being held today to honor St. Patrick. This day has special meaning for me as sixty seven years ago today my parents married in St. Louis.

Social Media before the Web

Portals and KM

Here is another example, in the late 1890s my great aunt liked to listen to music but the only place that you could hear music was the saloon in her newly-organized town in the Oklahoma Territory. I recently came across an interesting article, Social Media Before the Internet: Tales of Victorians, Comic Book Fans, Phone Phreaks and CBers. It notes that “long before the rise of Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, people found innovative ways to use technology to interact.”

Curtis McCarty served 22 years in prison in Oklahoma, 19 of them on death row for a murder he did not commit and Fernando Bermudez , who got out in November from Sing Sing where he was incarcerated for 18 and a half years.
