Profile: Mike Rastiello

My name is Mike Rastiello and I'm addicted to the Internet. It's been 20 years since I first plugged in.

I'm interested in the web, online marketing, and social media . Specifically how people use and misuse it. I primarily blog at LyntonWeb .

I'm in my 30's, live in San Antonio, I love Bruce Springsteen and I wear hats.

You can find my website here at MikeRastiello.com. You should also follow me on Twitter: @mikerastiello.
