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 [...]

Well, it happened. The famed Bootleg Series just released “The Cutting Edge” an amalgamation of recordings from the three different albums at the pinnacle of Bob Dylan’s creative peak:
Bringing It All Back Home, 1965
Highway 61 Revisited, 1965
Blonde On Bonde, 1966
These three albums are all master works of creativity. At the time, and really, since, [...]
A few weeks ago someone sent me an email asking me to update a link. The link was for a top blogs post I had made six years ago.
Six years. That is a LONG time. I’d forgotten about that post a long time ago, honestly. When I go back and look at my writing that [...]
It has been a full seven years since I began writing here on redmarketer. At the time of inception, this blog was mostly oriented around marketing in the new age. Digital presence for most companies was still relatively nascent. I worked at a small company at that point but was readying myself for business school [...]
Having completed Catch 22 a month ago, it was time to pick up a new book. I’d asked for a Wolf In White Van during Christmas. John Darnielle is one of my all time favorite writers, but only as a singer songwriter in the Mountain Goats. His song writing is truly exceptional, taking [...]
This is the time of year that seasonal affective disorder usually takes hold, but we’ve had a very light winter and it hasn’t been completely crumby. The new snowblower we bought barely got used, we had a really nice December and January, with colder than typical November and February. But thus far it’d [...]
In the last six months or so, it’s struck me how few new ideas or thought patterns have been developing in my head. I’ve got it narrowed down to a few reasons:
1. Work. Being busy and having a lot to do are a constant, but there is more to this. There is a ceiling on [...]
I read a pretty good amount. Not nearly as much as a few decades back, but enough to keep me well informed regarding news and entertained. Have since I was a lot younger. Used to write a lot as well, but not nearly so much presently either.
Lately it’s become apparent that I use words in [...]
I just realized why time is so crucial to writing, which is sad given how obvious this is.
When you initially write something, the writing is usually full of emotion…from something.
It may be emotion of remembrance or the elation of “discovering” an idea. Discovering something in your own mind is after all as invigorating as anything [...]
A very large component of writing this blog, or critical thinking in general, is being in the correct mind state. There are ideas all around you waiting to be plucked and discussed. Our mere existence necessitates understanding and explanation of why we do the things we do. Yet most of us wouldn’t take the time [...]
