Death by 1,000 Little TV Subscriptions

With the internet we would finally get rid of the monopolistic stronghold from our Cable and Satellite providers! We were going to be Julie Andrews in a Swiss meadow of endless DRM-free on-demand content, and our only cost would be the pipe that would bring it directly into our living room set top box. It […]

The Problem With Trying to Eat an Elephant

I don’t want to oversell it but it’s the first thing I’ve picked up from a book that I’m still thinking about almost hourly even 3 months after completing the book.

Automattic Bought Tumblr and That’s a Good Thing

Today Automattic bought Tumblr. That beloved microblogging platform of yesteryear? The one that was the Snapchat equivalent of GenXers like myself? While I never maintained a super active Tumblr, I always loved the concept — share pics and interesting links and quick thoughts effortlessly. I even tried something similar in the early days of this […]
