Sidra Lackey was born on January 5, 1983, in Philadelphia, PA but raised in The Bronx, New York, residing not far from Poe Cottage where writer Edgar Allan Poe spent the last years of his life. Sidra has loved writing since she first learned how to write and earned her BA in Professional Writing with honors from Lehman College in 2010. Her love for film started from a schoolgirl age, watching 90’s blockbusters at the local movie theatre with her family. From 2010-2012, she combined her passion for writing and movies and started a blog under the moniker: Cinemanista. In 2012 she briefly worked for an emerging blog DZI: The Voice, as the Senior Film Writer but then began microblogging independently about Film via Twitter until 2014. She wanted to try her hand at screenwriting and entered the 14th Annual 2014 Shriekfest Horror/Sci-Fi Film Festival/Screenplay Competition, successfully becoming a Finalist with her short horror screenplay “B-room.” Horror is the film and writing genre that has always fascinated, terrified and delighted Sidra and she hopes her work will steadily thrive within.

Avoiding Scams and Trolls on Twitter
By, Aaron Stern
Not long ago, Twitter was a novelty social media site that average users thought was silly. Now the microblogging tool is a vital news source and publishing platform, letting anyone share information and opinions from almost anywhere. Almost everyone is on it now, from your favorite celebrity to your parents.
But as is the case with every emergent trend on the Internet, Twitter is also populated by scammers and so-called ‘trolls,’ people who harass and provoke others with posts that range from the annoying to the profane. And what’s more, that security risk is essentially built into Twitter — its public-facing nature allows anyone to follow or mention anyone else, meaning users have little control over who can read their tweets, or tweets about them. Specifically blocking individual users is the only ingrained privacy protection. Avoiding the pitfalls of Twitter is critical to critical to keeping your devices and your identity safe and secure.

Are you tweeting when you could be microblogging? Emailing when wiki-ing makes more sense? With so many choices out there, it’s tempting to pick one social media tool and use it all the time. Don’t do it, says Bill Ives. You get better results if you choose a method based on the outcome you want. In today’s show, Bill talks about how the medium you choose for your message—words versus pictures, for example—influences the way people process information, draw conclusions and solve problems. He shares specific examples of how to use wikis, blogs and microblogs to get work done faster and better. Bill, who has a Ph.D. in educational psychology, researched the effects of media on cognition at Harvard University. He has 25 years of experience as a consultant focused on business applications for emerging technologies. Bill writes for FastForward, The AppGap, and his own blog, Portals and KM.
