Is My Online Information Private?

No. At least, not completely. From text messages, phone calls and voicemail, email and IM chats, to search history, shopping habits, etc., your privacy is for the most part, an illusion. The only thing that is private is what’s inside of your head. Once you share something in any capacity, especially through technology, it is […]

How to Make Money Blogging

My first piece of advice is an ironic and possibly radical one. The best way to make money online blogging, is actually to make that goal secondary. The methodology here, is that you should first, actually enjoy writing about a certain topic, whether you’re making money or not. If your blog isn’t a labor of […]

AVG vs Norton

I’ve known the answer to that question for a long time. AVG is clearly the better anti-virus software. However, at the end of this article will be a chance for everyone to chime in. A friend of mine once said that Norton itself is a virus, couldn’t agree more. I’ve cleaned all the crapware off […]

Portfolios: One Tough Psychological Cookie

There’s no arguing that it’s vital for any professional, of any kind, to have a portfolio. You just have to have one.

Sure, there’s a lot of fine print and red tape and most companies are likely using legal loopholes. But, […]

How to Properly Submit a DMOZ Listing

DMOZ has now been closed. An unofficial clone, that this tutorial may still be relevant to, has been created here. A lot of people want to get listed on DMOZ.org (Open Directory Project). Why?

How to Submit a Website to the hengine Search Engine

hengine.org is a human search engine that I created. I call it “The Human Search Engine” because I put an emphasis on human-filtering the results. This means that like DMOZ, I only accept quality websites that meet a certain standard. I don’t send out search engine crawlers to automatically collect and index websites/webpages like Google […]

Kudos to the Team Behind the Kevin Bacon Spot

First, watch it: There’s nothing worse than when a TV ad tries to be funny or relate to a demographic and fails miserably. It only serves to add to the annoyance of a commercial and further makes you not like or want the product because you’re now associating it with stupidity. It sounds silly, but […]
