Putting the jerk in knee-jerk


Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! This week I wanted to talk about something that is becoming more and more prevalent in our tech society — the social media faux pas. Also known as a gaffe or a fail, this kind of whoopsie has increased in frequency as you hear about companies who have put their proverbial foot in their mouth as they insult minorities, ethnic groups and social or political groups.

I've been in the Brainerd Lakes Area for the last 6 years, currently in Baxter with my wife and two little girls. We really enjoy all the activities and places to see in the Lakes area and particularly enjoy going to the beach and walking out at the Arboretum. I grew up in western MN and went to school at the University of MN, Crookston.
