Why I Work All The Time

Because I am my job. I enjoy building a business that literally has my name on it. It’s frustrating and scary and amazing all at once. Great post… Man is meant to be busy. But busy on certain types of things. There is not supposed to be some distinction between work and not work. It’s …

Marco Arment’s Overcast

#xoxofest @marcoarment: My podcast app is called Overcast – it's about halfway done, but the back end half. http://t.co/fx2lHaZRXc — Kevin Marks (@kevinmarks) September 22, 2013 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Based on the current hotness that podcasting is going to experience in 2013 and 2014, Marco (founder of Instapaper and The Magazine) has a new podcast app: I …

Sen Franken Questions iPhone 5s and 5th Amendment Implications

Another reason I’m passing on the latest iPhone is because of the 5th Amendment and the fine legal line between something you “know” and something you have or are. Or to put it simply, is a password more secure because you “know” it and the government would have to compel you to give up that …

My Jerry Maguire Moment

I’m writing this while sitting at the bar waiting for takeout from my fav pizza place dive in my old/new city of Columbia. This time it feels more permanent. That’s most because I’vd started both my new business and my new life here. This is my Jerry Maguire moment in time and place. Everyone here …

4D Star Collapse Lead to Our Universe?

Here’s your Monday afternoon mind-bender… It could be time to bid the Big Bang bye-bye. Cosmologists have speculated that the Universe formed from the debris ejected when a four-dimensional star collapsed into a black hole — a scenario that would help to explain why the cosmos seems to be so uniform in all directions. via …

How Google Solved Android’s Fragmentation Problem

With an app, of course. Fascinating to ponder that Google is trying to basically blow up the PC industry with Chrome (the Win 8 Chrome app runs exactly like my Chromebook and I’m betting they take that over to OSX as well) and is doing a similar thing with this decentralized Android strategy to iOS. …

(Fe)Male Identity(ies)

My amazing friend (and a rare Baptist MDiv/MAR/PhD) Thomas writes this fantastic post: Admittedly, the overall message of the post seems to be one of trying to teach children good social media practices, but it does much more than that. For starters, there is what appeared to many commenters as blatant hypocrisy: the mother decried …

Nexus 5 with LTE?

My Nexus 4 is the best phone I’ve ever owned (having owned every previous iPhone up to the 5 and a couple of other Android phones like the Galaxy S3). Being a relatively recent convert to the Android world, the ecosystem is such a better fit for me than iOS (though I still respect that …

Cryptonomicon

I can neither confirm nor deny that my next book will be based on this sentence… “In the future, superpowers will be made or broken based on the strength of their cryptanalytic programs,” a 2007 document said. “It is the price of admission for the U.S. to maintain unrestricted access to and use of cyberspace.” …

Twitter Hashtags and Crisis Management

One thing that’s frequently seen in 2013 is some form of crisis that begins on and manifests itself across social media platforms. The folks at Social Media Today have some great tips for using hashtags effectively during times of crisis (even though they have a typo in their post title, evidently): Use a Twitter Hashtags …
