Internet’s Action and Reaction Loop

I’m archiving this snippet and article to revisit in 2020… I wonder if we’ll look back on 2015 as a “tipping point” of the internet as we knew it? The Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace by John Perry Barlow in 1996 does seem like a long ago dream. Perhaps immediacy is not a democratizing state …

Twitter’s Target

I started using Twitter in mid 2006, so I’m a little biased… but I still have many expectations and hopes for the platform that I don’t for Facebook, Instagram etc. Twitter stands(or, it could if it were to become developer friendly again) at the fulcrum point between traditional social networks and the future of online …

I’m Quitting Marketing

I stumbled into the affiliate marketing world years ago. I’m walking out of it today. My experiences in the affiliate marketing world have been incredibly positive when it comes to interpersonal relationships. However, it’s time for me to move on. I’m not happy. Why am I not happy?

Google Has Fumbled FeedBurner’s Real Time Opportunity

Earlier this week, I lamented on Google’s poor handling of FeedBurner since acquiring the service. Instead of capitalizing on FeedBurner’s large amount of inertia and kind feelings towards the service from the influence-sphere of bloggers, Google has relegated FeedBurner to the back shelf of its growing collection of dolls and toys. In a post about …

Tweetree

I’m not always a big fan of 3rd party Twitter apps (beyond the desktop apps) as most are still either pretty rudimentary or focused more on ego-stroking than anything else. However, this is pretty darn nifty (especially if you use the Twitter web page more than anything else): Tweetree puts your Twitter stream in a …
