Boundaries of Language in Advertising

Boundaries of Language in Advertising
The second of two parts on Peru. The first part appeared in XBIZ World’s August issue. “While planning our trip we worried about the obvious risks — altitude sickness, food and water. What wasn't planned was being on the Inca Trail with a broken foot. A rescue call went out and I ... More »

Witnessing a New Dawn in Adult?

Witnessing a New Dawn in Adult?
Last month I was asked by XBIZ to provide a short blurb for a magazine feature that asked the question: “What will the paysite market look like five years from now?” What I said was, “I’m not expecting the adult site market to look drastically different in five years on a wh... More »

See Bigger Picture, Participate and Stand United

See Bigger Picture, Participate and Stand United
Anyone who’s worked in the adult industry in the past five years knows the challenges we’ve faced. Some people have even questioned staying in the business. After all, between cheap content, government harassment, regulatory dictates and political platforms that blame you for the decline... More »

Developing, Launching New Products

Developing, Launching New Products
Last fall I discovered that voice-to-text had finally become useful on my mobile. It was 85 to 90 percent accurate in a quiet room. It felt like magic. Since then, my morning walk to work in Barcelona has been full of dictation. No longer do ideas just drift in and out of my head. I capture them. I... More »

Tips to Improve Your Marketing Game

Tips to Improve Your Marketing Game
Back in the day, affiliates and traffic would virtually fall in your lap — and yes, the pun is intentional. You built a site, threw up some banners and, somehow, made money.

Mobile Thriving in Ways Never Intended

Mobile Thriving in Ways Never Intended
We were isolated and more than 10 miles from anything resembling civilization. There was no cell service, Wi-Fi or internet. In that moment, we needed a connection to the outside world for something far more important than porn, email or a status update. Things had gone wrong in Peru. We are more c... More »

Many webcam performers have experienced a new trend in online piracy — the illegal recording and publication of live webcam performances. The “business model” is disturbingly simple: sign up to purchase or view a live webcam performance on any number of webcam networks, use current... More »

Arguments for AI in Processing

Arguments for AI in Processing
Recently, my wife asked me for a photo I’d taken of a sunset on a beach. I’ve got over 20,000 photos in the cloud. You’ve probably got even more than I do. Photos aren’t easy to sort. I can’t remember when I took the picture my wife wants. I live in Spain — lots ... More »
