THE FOURTH SHELL

This is a short story I wrote for the Pennsylvania Game News back in 2003 as a gift to my dad and a tribute to his beloved bird dog, Heidi. While the story is a fiction as told, everything in the story really happened.

The follow-up to my June article in HBM, this is a much broader look at the state of “Online Social Networking” in December of 2007. After this piece, I stopped pitching traditional print publications about Social Media topics because blogs had become much more relevant than anything being published in monthly magazines. This article was also converted to a blog on the HBM website and then eventually deleted.
