Vizify: Create a Cool Infographic of Yourself


Vizify is a pretty cool way to view an Infographic of yourself, by pulling in your personal data from all your social networks to create a snapshot. I first heard about it two weeks ago from one of my friends @EmbarkCreative on Twitter. She hooked me up with an invite. I loved it!

Vizify soon after set me up with my own personalized invite code, so I can share with all my friends. If you want to try out Vizify, use code: mayhemstudios

They also make another cool little tool called "Tweetsheet." It's your Twitter activity as an Infographic. Angry Birds + Your Tweets = Tweetsheet.

Mayhem Weekend on the USS Abraham Lincoln AirCraft Carrier

USS Abraham Lincoln AirCraft Carrier

It was an honor to be invited by the U.S. Navy and sponsored by Guy Kawasaki and Dennis Hall to stay over night on the USS Abraham Lincoln AirCraft Carrier.

We were invite to participate in the U.S. Navy's outreach program to social media personalities to participate in social media embarks, campaign to bring a better awareness of the U.S. Navy. The understanding of the role of carrier aviation, as well as demonstrate the high-level of training required to keep our Sailors ready to meet the nation’s needs.

It was such a great experience, we got to see rare first-hand look, at life aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, and witness the flight operations on the deck. The pride and professionalism of young men and women who serve our country at sea. I also have a greater appreciation for our service men and women that protect us from harm.

There were lots of bonding time with my other shipmates.
