November’s Tip Sheet

In a recent blog post, my colleague Kayla Krause wrote about the myth of the summer slowdown. And she’s right. When the days are warm and long, the expectation is that we’ll suddenly find the time to cram more activity into 24 hours than was possible when the ground was covered in a blanket of […]

From Websites to Parasites…to Collective Perfection?

  From most reports, we are a nation of cord cutters.  We are technology addicts that speak responsibly of privacy and propriety in the way digital businesses deal with us, but simultaneously consume irrationally and become easily distracted by, and attracted to, the digital squirrel of innovation.  There were a number of stories last week […]

Ummm…is this thing on?

New experience time again.  You may remember not too long ago I got a taste of my own PR medicine when I became an interview subject – and ultimately a quoted source – on a security breach.  To be honest, it was fun – at least for me.  You’ll notice I haven’t been quoted since.  […]

RSA Recap: React, Reinvigorate, Reinforce, Repeat?

A Night of Firsts and What Did You Just Call Me?

Chris Carleton and I attended our first Mass Innovation Night at the very cool Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation and had the distinct pleasure of buying everyone a drink at Biagio afterward. It’s a fun and interesting […]
