Pub Politics Episode 15, featuring my good friend Kevin Hall, is now up for your view pleasure.
The Most Asked Question: Apple or PC?
Today I got this question from a buddy and because I get it nearly every day, I figured I’d just post some quick thoughts here so that I can point to a link from now on. The question… “Know you live and die by Apple, but need an honest opinion. I’m about to buy a new laptop for business use, and was wondering what you would recommend. PC or Apple? And why… If you have the...
Products I Use Every Single Day
People often ask me what devices, websites and applications I use the most. I figured I’d give you an update since it’s in about a year since I last told you. Here are the things I use every single day: iPhone 4 iPad iMac MacBook Pro Apple TV iTunes Gmail Google calendar Google voice Google wave Google Talk Google analytics Google reader ...
Pub Politics Episode 14: The Dog Days of Summer
Episode 12 of Pub Politics.
Pub Politics Episode 13 is up. Glad to see that Phil and Michael didn’t stir up any controversy while I was on vacation.
The iPhone 4 is a magnificent pocket computer, but a HORRIBLE phone. I agree with Consumer Reports. Whatever the fix is, maybe the bumper case, Apple should give it away for free.
Newspapers Should Follow the Hulu Model
I love Hulu. In fact, because of Hulu, I did something I thought I’d never in my life do. I cancelled cable. With a $25 wire, I can hook my laptop directly into my flat screen TV and watch nearly everything I want to watch for free. When I go to watch 30 Rock, I’m forced to watch a commercial. I don’t mind it all. I’m getting fantastic content for free. Why would I...
You Should Put Your Culture In Writing
Our last day in Europe. We leave Rome tomorrow for Charlotte via New York. Elizabeth gets irritated because she thinks I work too much during vacations. I don’t work. I read, research, brain storm and write. It’s the one point where I can slow down long enough to analyze what I’ve been doing and the direction I want to take myself and my company. It’s been a pretty...
Is the Internet Destroying Individual Cultures?
I’m not asking if it’s destroying culture as a whole. Because of our new abilities to connect, we are expanding our minds. We can see, talk to and even work with people from around the globe. But does all that new connecting mean that we are becoming one large melting pot? Are we truly becoming one real world? I didn’t do a lot of traveling as a child. We didn’t have the financial resources. I...
Follow Your Passions and Grab Happiness
I have a few passions. I love politics, the marketing side, not the pointless drama. I love technology and I’m a shameless Apple fanboy. I love to travel and nothing thrills me more than Carolina football games. I also love teaching and public speaking. I love beer. And wine. And rum. I love creating and building businesses. I want to spend every free minute at a beach with my best friends and my...
Get Offline and Grab a Baguette
It’s my third day in Paris. It’s amazing. The culture is rich and people seem to be quite social, all day packing the hundreds of cafes that line the streets. On the first night we took a boat tour of the Seine, leaving from the Eiffel Tower and floating past the Louvre and Notre Dame. The bridges we crossed under were beautiful and while I saw some of the most elaborate buildings in...
