Suspense is a feeling of pleasurable fascination and excitement mixed with apprehension. It is a great way to create tension in a story. This video entitled, “The House on Wade Avenue”, uses this device to tell a simple story. I can tell you the whole story in one sentence… Some government utility buildings are disguised to look like homes so they fit into the neighborhood. That’s it. However, through the use of good storytelling, this simple premise is executed well through the use of withholding information, long pauses and music.

I gave my first talk on “Social Media” last week at the RES 2010 Conference. The name of the 90 minute session was entitled, “The Power of Social Media”. The session was moderated by “Valerie Taliman”, a media consultant with “Three Sisters”. The other speakers joining me were Craig Cooke, CEO/Co-founder of Rhythm Interactive (St. Regis Mohawk) and Denise Evans, Market Development Executive for IBM.
I split my talk up into two sections. The first part was my experience in social media with our CorneliaMarie.com sites. The second half of the talk focused on my work with Alaska Native Corporations.
