Google+ User Experience Enthusiast

Well hello, I'm Ryan Crowe <--this is my LinkedIn profile!

I'm a social media director at an ad agency in St. Louis, active social media blogger, and I also speak (and am available to speak) about social media at online conferences, and also offline conferences!

In addition to my ad agency work, I also am the Director of Social Strategy at LittleBigFund - and I sit on the Board of Directors!

You might enjoy following me if you enjoy conversation about social media, the St. Louis Cardinals, or random nerdy things. If you're wondering why so many people have me in their circles it's because I like to help people out using G+, and I started doing it pretty early! People like the help so much that this stuff happened:

About 11 weeks ago Show Me Your Desk!

So, I just got a standing desk pictured below and I put the photo up on Facebook and a few of my friends commented on our workplace differences. I wanted to see what all of you were rocking at your workplace. If you can't take a picture, what is unique or different about your workspace?

"We aren't proud of how you handled that," or "Someone should have known better!" and you hope that instead of stagnantly accepting their error, that they move to make sure things like that don't happen again.

I also wasn't prepared to feel as pr
