One year of the WWW!

First of all, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Heather and I made our way out to the suburbs to share the traditional turkey meal with the family.

Mr. Cuban emphases about how winning required a lot of reading and consuming information. Books, magazines, blogs, software manuals, etc. and the willingness… Continue Reading

I won’t write this post in 2020

Online video is here to say and if you think about why it makes perfect sense. Smartphones and mobile broadband paved the way for live streaming of almost anything, anywhere. In fact, I should stop writing this and whip out my phone to record my thoughts with Facebook Live. The video post will likely reach… Continue Reading
