I Helped The F.B.I. Get Into Someone's DB
It was back in 1997 at my first job out of college. I was a networking stack engineer on the Netscape Browser. At that time, the email client, news reader, and browser were essentially rolled into one (I'm sure I'm pissing some lawyer off by making that sta...

International Business Travel And You
I was in my mid-20s when my boss asked me to go to India to do some work with our office in Bangalore. I was stoked. I was so excited that I was going to travel to India and a) meet my colleagues there and b) to experience another, radically different, cult...

Spending Capital
The Joker burning "his half" of the cash in The Dark Knight. Enough data points now to write this post without giving anyone in my portfolio away, and enough that I feel like I see a pattern. I'm seeing a lot of first-round/seed stage capital going unused. ...

I'm getting back into the mix. It's been a creative, fun, enlightening, educational, expanding, and relaxing couple of years "off," but I want to re-engage with something operational again; I've joined Techstars as its CTO. I'm jumping in for a few reasons....

Sleeping Pills/Ambien
Coincidentally, many years ago, Ambien hit the market right when I started doing a fair amount of international travel for business. I was stoked. Sleeping in significant time-zone offsets from my home time-zone was obviously a challenge, and I'd always hav...

Rdio & The Music Industry
I'm grumpy that Rdio couldn't make it through the forrest of crappy music services that end-users lapped up in the name of "free." Especially when it comes to artistic endeavors, look past your wallet sometimes folks; life is better in the end when we do. C...

Parenting, "the talk," and a Request.
A couple of days ago I tweeted about "the talk" I had with my 10-yr-old daughter, and it received an intense amount of attention. The tweet was actually about "the network," as opposed to sex, which everyone undoubtedly assumed it was about. I included a di...

Four Day Time Portal
I just got back from a trip to Duluth, MN. I had never been to the mid-west before. Nor had I ever spent four days in a retirement community. Nor had I ever spent four days with people who were all 70 years old and up. Nor had I ever spent four days with so...

Incredible! Request second-floor seats at the main Ginza restaurant for the most authentic experience (fewest Westerners).

"always amazing food, though they're starting to show their age. wait staff doesn't feel like they're as in to it or genuine anymore. they took our picture after dinner and handed us printed copies; very cheeky feeling. decore is just too stodgy anymore."
