Life is Full of Mistakes, Business is No Different

I’ve made mistakes my whole life, as I will until the day I die, no different from you or anyone else that ever did, does, or will exist. Yet, despite this commonality of all human beings being fallible, which one could argue, is essentially the human condition, most of us fight, irrationally, ignorantly, and egotistically […]

Tired of Technology

Woh, for a tech blog, that’s about as cynical and ironic of a header as you can get, but it’s true. As much as I feel some days like completely deleting all those many social profiles I’ve built, wiping out all my websites, blogs, and comments across the web, tossing my laptop in the trash, […]

Domain Brokers

Most domain brokers are pure sleaze, period. Sorry, that’s just the way I feel about it in the most simple terms. First, I should say that I auction off domains and websites myself. But there’s a huge difference. The only domains and websites I sell are legitimate ones where I was at one point maintaining […]

Education vs Experience

UPDATE — I’d like to quickly create a preamble for the point I’m trying to convey. I’m in no way, shape, or form attempting to bash or dissuade people from going to college. This isn’t an examination of college education itself. What I’m really addressing is the faulty societal views that some people have of […]

The New Twitter API v1.1 Nightmares Solved!

Skip the reading, and get to (hopefully) the solution you’ve been looking for after scouring the internet in a headache-inducing rage seeing no help in sight for the past several hours… Two things are 100% true, progress is inevitable and people hate change. I should state upfront that I’m a web designer, not a programmer […]

Netflix: The Game Changer (Not New)

Netflix was pretty much a game-changer day one of its incarnation. I wrote about this three years ago, though it was true long before that. Strangely, others are now only finally coming around (seeing articles popping up as if any of this is actually new) to what I thought was inevitable even before I wrote […]

How to Make AddThis Responsive

The problem I often see is that someone will pick up an all-responsive website template or WordPress theme for example and they’ll add all sorts of widgets and plugins to it, and more times than not, third-party add-ons are not responsive. As most people are not web designers or programmers, they tend to not think […]

Web: A Needle in a Haystack Industry

The web is a truly unstoppable industry, growing exponentially and completely unaffected (in my opinion) by the economy like other tangible industries, construction and real estate for example. It’s a global community with little to no overhead. It’s never mattered how any specific city, state, country, or even continent is doing, because I’ve reached them […]

The Coding Brain

Learning a coding language, in my opinion, is very similar to learning a spoken language. You need to learn how to read and write it well (perhaps not fluently, but well) in order for yourself, as well as others, to understand what you’re communicating. The way a server or browser might not be able to […]
