Some small news from me today: Just launched an updated site with more information about who I am, what I can do for your company, and portfolio of work. Let me know what you think? :)

I've detailed the journey here in my latest blog post:

Facebook's innovation style of "move fast and break things" has resulted in some internal rethinking of what the company's all about.

Last month, I moderated a panel at an event hosted by +Salesforce's Accelerate startup program discussing #CustomerEngagement (can you define it?). It was a lively discussion thanks to great insights from Mai Tran Green, +Leanplum's Shawn Azman, and Clutch Solutions' Andy O'Dell. Special thanks to +Ludovic Ulrich for inviting me to participate. You can watch the entire discussion here:

In my latest post, I explored my fascination with the proliferation of the camera-first strategy, which Snapchat helped to make mainstream in the industry. Here's my look into why it's impacted our consumer apps and marketing programs.

There's so much news coming out of Facebook's scandal with Cambridge Analytica that I've started a +Flipboard magazine. Called "Privacy-Gate", it looks back at the whistleblower, the lack of response from Facebook, and where things are headed. And believe me, there's definitely going to be more news coming out of the woodwork.

Late last night, +TechCrunch reported that Google was in talks to acquire Lytro. Many probably aren't familiar with +Lytro, especially since it gave up the consumer camera space in 2016. But it's knowledge rests in light-field technology, which is probably what appeals to Google. Today I've jotted down my thoughts on how this integration could make +Google VR's Daydream and AR efforts more interesting in the future.

My first feature for VentureBeat is on Y Combinator. After a decade of helping startups, what's the program's secret?

It's about experimenting and always putting founders first. There's some amazing tidbits from Jessica Livingston, Sam Altman, Qasar Younis, David Rusenko, Don Dodge, Jason McCabe Calacanis, and Chase Adam in here.

Please read and let me know what you think.

Wrote my first feature for +VentureBeat VB this morning. It's a look at +Evernote and its mobile strategy. I also got a chance to talk to the company's VP of Mobile Jamie Hull. Coincidentally she's speaking at our #MobileBeat  event on Monday & Tuesday -- tickets still available: http://events.venturebeat.com/event/mobilebeat2015/

Following Carly Fiorina's appearance at TechCrunch Disrupt in NYC this past week, I thought about how cool would it be to have candidates from the major political parties engage the tech community in a unique'ish debate. Which publication would be ideal to host this contest I'd opt for TechCrunch...

Regardless of whether or not this actually happens (probably not), I wanted to get it out there and have people call me crazy. Enjoy.
