It’s been a long time now that I’ve expected mobile computing to take over the desktop computing platforms. There’s always going to be a desktop platform (or at least some version of it) as it’s so helpful to have large screens for analyzing data. I use two wide screens at work, usually have multiple Excel [...]

Today we’re seeing organizations of all sizes at a crossroads. A decision point, trying to understand which way the world is moving and make decisions that allow for them to continue to grow.
These organizations see the changes happening. They know that their previous tactics are becoming less and less effective over the course of time. [...]
I’ve written about this a good amount in the past, but am fascinated by the evolution of cable in the US. Truth be told, I’m always curious about all things sociology and understanding why and how people consume information. As Annie Dillard put it so eloquently: how we spend our days is, of course, how [...]
For the last two years, my primary entertainment source has been gaming. I’m a casual. I’ve got some friends that are more core. I don’t know a lot of hardcore gamers.

At home, I have many passwords for many sites. Most of them I don’t remember because my browser does the work for me.
At work, I have far more. I happen to work in [...]
As the year winds down, two reports I read recently were Mary Meeker’s latest look at the web and Henry Blodget’s (et. al) break down of the digital economy.
Both of value if you are looking forward to where new media and content consumption are going. They will take some time to get through, but are [...]
I was reading this post from Seth Godin (who I still read religiously) today and it hit me, something I’ve thought about before, it’s just the internet. His post is talking about how habits have changed.The centralization of information and news and all other things magically digital mean that finding things to be interested in, [...]
