Should you actually care about where you store your content?

One of my favorite blogs to read is from Fred Wilson. He’s a Venture Capitalist and blogs every week day and has for decades. He was part of the reason for me to try to challenge myself to blog every day. So far, it’s been going well. Last year, not so much. This is all about where to store your content. But Fred brought up a good point today on the topic of where you should be...

Where is my Facebook Like button?

Remember when Facebook would tinker and roll out new features whether you liked them or not? Well, it’s happening again and this time the question many will ask is where is my Facebook Like button? Facebook announced a few days ago that they’re changing Pages (not standard profiles if you have just a normal Facebook profile). If you don’t know the difference, you sign up for a...

Artists performing at home: Concert Corona

We are living in unprecedented times. Never before – at least in my lifetime – have we all been limited to going out, being around each other and living our normal lives…for days on end. Musicians are included. Therefore, we’re seeing a lot of artists performing at home. This is a great concept and very cathartic for people. I wanted to create a place to showcase all of...

Loom just discounted their prices and made platform FREE for teachers

Coronavirus is forcing thousands to telecommute. We’re already seeing major companies ask people to work from home when and if they can. Terms like ‘social-distancing’ are making their way into the vernacular. So how do you get work done from your desk at home? I use a lot of tools, but this Loom is quick and easy (and now free and/or with no limits for users). Loom is a very...

Quibi’s 50 show lineup for launch

If you haven’t heard of Quibi, no problem. It’s not a household name yet. In fact, it hasn’t launched. I wrote about it earlier as I’m interested to see what it’s about, what kind of content it’ll air and what the fuss is all about.  But now we’re seeing Quibi’s 50 show lineup set for it’s debut in April. First, what is it? Quibi (pronounced...

How to find old websites that no longer exist

Have you ever typed in a website address only to find it’s gone, or it redirects to another website? Maybe you used to own a site and want to take a trip down memory lane. Maybe you just need to find some crucial information to save the world. That’s when you use Wayback Machine. That’s how to find old websites that no longer exist. Wayback Machine is an impressive collection of...

Interviewing Warby Parker from my balcony

I was perusing the web as I often do and came across an article on Fortune about why it’s hard to find the next ‘Warby Parker’. For those of you who don’t know Warby Parker, you likely have great vision. Warby Parker sells affordable and trendy eyeglasses in a genius direct-to-consumer model. They’ve been doing it for years. The article hit me because they make them...

HQ Trivia is shutting down

It appears the popular quiz game app HQ is done. Word is the company laid off the final 25 staff members and will cease operations. HQ had a deal in the works to keep them open and acquired, but the buyer pulled out at the last minute and aren’t willing to fund. That means dunzo. HQ Trivia is shutting down. It’s sad, but not surprising. I remember a few years ago when the game came...

My wife’s favorite app (and it isn’t what you think)

There is an app for that. We’ve heard that a million times by now. Because, well, there really is an app for just about anything. I’ve discovered that I use the same few apps over and over again. There is one app that has become more popular than a lot of the others in recent years, and it turns out to be my wife’s favorite app. It’s not Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or...
