Not surprised to read this:

Sales of e-books are falling precipitously, the New York Times reports, as paperbacks and audiobooks regain ground — and even independent bookstores "are thriving again." The numbers suggests a self-inflicted wound by book publishers: They are charging too much for low-cost media that have become "critical profit engines." One wonders what the landscape would be if they hadn't crushed Amazon's $10 ebook initiative.
Twitter shares surged on talk that Salesforce (and maybe Google and Microsoft and Verizon) are considering buying the company. But as recode reports, this is "more of a soft outreach and inbound than

Story
Tagline
I'm a barrel of fun, creativity, debate and adventure.
Introduction
I'm a creative geek. Pretty good way to sum it up in a short line. I enjoy reading, writing, webpage development, gaming, drinking, anything that involves nature and the outdoors, women, politics, space, and socializing. The order does not mean I like any of these things more than the others.

Obviously my days are pretty busy, because if I'm not doing one of these things then I'm doing another. I always have time to make a new friend or meet someone who just might be able to capture my imagination for a while.

Currently I work as a front-end developer for an up-and-coming social network, and I am the owner and developer of The Den of Amateur Writing (A social network for writers of all skills and ages.)

G+ me up!
Bragging rights
I have 2 educations, I've lived in 4 provinces of Canada, and around 15 cities.

  • Thousand Islands Secondary School
    1995 - 2000
