What gets measured gets…?

Instacart is in Atlanta!

July 1, 2014

Yes, yes, we all know that Webvan is known to be the “largest dot-com bust in history”. However, I’ve always thought the idea was needed if someone could just pull it off.

Two books I recommend, and yes, they’re both video game books

June 30, 2014

Since starting Dragon Army back in September of last year, I’ve had the fun task of boning up on the video game industry. I’ve been playing more video games – nice perk, right – but of course its had its draw backs at home, thus the Kindle experiment I wrote about last week. I’ve also […]

I’m a big fan of crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. And of Uruut, which is an Atlanta Tech Village startup that does a similar thing for non-profits! One of my good friends just backed a new product called TrackR on Indiegogo and after taking a look, I quickly decided I needed to try this […]

I’ve been having too much “screen time” at home, so I’m adding one more screen to solve the problem

June 23, 2014

There’s an on-going struggle at my house to get my children to use less screen time (iPads or iPhones, TV, or video games). My wife actually does an amazing job keeping the kids our circus at bay with this and from what I can tell, their screen time is below the average. However, its still […]
