An Iblast Card Exclusive!

We are excited about our new partnership with New Canaan’s Iblast Card (I Buy Local and Shop in Town). Last year, we were a sponsor and greatly benefited from all the promotion Iblast Card did for us. As the year progressed and we got to know the owners, Carolyn Williams and Barbara Davis, we knew we wanted to…

Giving Thanks

I went to visit my daughter, Mimie, who lives on her own now. She lives in a lovely neighborhood with well tended lawns and caring neighbors. I had come to check-in on Thanksgiving plans and I have to admit that I wasn’t quite in the holiday mood. As I rounded the bend to her home,…

Plan for Getting Along

I planned out the week a while back, knowing this is the season we at Nurenu like our clients to think about their company’s plans.

It is no longer the social…

Facebook ‘Places’ is not in Foursquare’s space[s]

The first in a multi-part series. Facebook Places, unlike Foursquare and Gowalla, is a feature not an app. Since the public unveiling of Facebook “Places”, the proverbial ”jump-to-conclusions mat” has been unfurled gratuitously by social media types across America. The implications of “Places” is not quite as revolutionary as many, including myself, had previously anticipated. While many seem…
