In Praise of Square Photos – or Why Instagram Had it Right

The tech world is awash with excitement because Instagram (over 300 million users) now supports photos and video uploaded in traditional landscape and portrait mode, instead of just square.

Are You Outsourcing Your Thinking

It’s interesting how I hear the same words from many mouths. Over and over. Someone will have an idea, and then others will echo that idea. In the process, I have this feeling that people are outsourcing their thinking. Outsourcing your...Show More Summary

Thoughts Thought after Periscope

It was an interesting experience, having a bunch of negative people show up to see what I’d talk about. They were mostly mad that I said I didn’t like a piece of software that they like. It’s really funny to me. Just because I have an opinion that’s counter to their opinion about a software […] The post Thoughts Thought after Periscope appeared first on

Customer Service is Marketing

My son, Harold, is huge into video games and video game culture. He knows more weird and deep-level memes and obscure details than you’ll ever know. Harold has convinced me to take him to the SCG Convention in Texas. To say he’s hyped and excited is to really underplay how he feels about it. As […] The post Customer Service is Marketing appeared first on
