Okay, file this under WTF, zOMG and STFU. Deloitte, the top-shelf global professional services firm, is taking a big step and opening an office in Baghdad. Yes, that one – the one in Iraq.
The office will open in Q1 2011. According to Iraqi Directory, the firm is also “working on an add-on acquisition to grow its Middle Eastern presence.” That is pretty wild. I used to complain about gigs in Tennessee and Nebraska. I don’t think I could wrap my head around this one.
I’ve been using Twitter’s Blackbird Pie utility almost from the day it was released. Unfortunately, there aren’t many places where I can use it. It works on Gadling, Luxist and HuffPo, but not Business Insider. Until recently, it didn’t work on WordPress … but that just changed!
WordPress is actually making it incredibly easy to use Blackbird Pie (far easier than the original utility, which was pretty easy anyway.
So, what’s the implication of this … aside from my having a new social media tool to play with? Well, I have a lot more latitude in embedding tweets in my posts. So, I can start presenting Twitter users in their own words. This is particularly useful for me with people who don’t think before they tweet.
