Breaking an Addiction to Paper

Breaking an Addiction to Paper
Ideas were coming from everywhere and I wanted to do them all. First it was the Post-It notes. Everywhere. Endless yellow notes with scribbles that were barely discernable.

Serious Questions: Dating Sites and False Advertising

Serious Questions: Dating Sites and False Advertising
The popup ad promised something fairly amazing in any context: “thousands” of girls in my area, all presumably hot to trot, or at the very least, available to cyber-woo. From my perspective, there was only one small problem with the claim; it was quite obviously false, and enormously, eg... More »

ASACP: Self Regulate Or Be Regulated

ASACP: Self Regulate Or Be Regulated

Adding New Billing Options Just Takes Minutes
