http://blog.thelettertwo.com/2015/04/18/the-undefined-path/I've been a avid user of Path for a few years and even covered it when I was at The Next Web. But there's something peculiar about where the platform is going. Not quite sure if I hit something, but I wanted to get my thoughts out. Does Path still have a focus, even now as an app studio?

An opinion piece on Path's constant changes and what it might need to do to find itself after shifting from private social network to an app studio.

Ahead of +Ben Parr new book launch on Tuesday, I share my thoughts about "Captivology: The Science of Capturing People's Attention" and why it's worth your time to read.

If you're a follower of +Lisa Bettany, her #photography  work, or even a fan of the Camera+ app, you should read this great profile by +Follow The Geek. Good understanding of her journey and how her photography has evolved over the years.

Ahead of Yahoo's first mobile developer conference, I offer some thoughts on what I hope to see when Marissa Mayer and team takes the stage. Will it be more of a showcase about advertising or an appeal to work with developers.

One of the cool projects that I've been able to work on is the creation of a website for my company. It didn't have one just for itself. So we set out to find a way to really establish ourselves online in Silicon Valley. And here's the results...

The website was spec'ed by me and the team here and built on WordPress with the help of Kanopi Studios. It features photos about us, our culture, and events, info about the numerous programs here, and also a blog with awesome insights from the team.

It'd be great if you could check it out. :)
Orange Silicon Valley (OSV) is the Bay Area division of Orange, one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators. It thrives on working with Silicon Valley startups, venture capitalists, brands, and thought-leaders to seek out future disruptions and innovations.

Interesting take on traveling and #photography  from +Paul Stamatiou. I always worry about what gear to take to places I've never been and shudder to think what would happen if I missed out on that one photo because I didn't bring the right gear..  
Over the last two years I have spent a lot of time on the photos section of this website. I have redesigned and refactored it a few times, along the way evolving into a place to support and house ...

Had an opportunity to play around with Priime​ recently and it's a pretty well done photo-editing app. Yeah, there are a lot of them, but what makes this interesting is that it features styles curated by professional photographers. Just one tap and you get close to the magic that they create with their own work. 

Some of the last few photos that I've shared on Facebook and Instagram have had the #priime hashtag applied -- these were done in the app. I've tweaked a few of them to get close to what I was happy with. The app is worth checking out -- if you have an iOS device.

Yahoo calls itself a "mobile-first" company (but who doesn't?). So what does it do next? It'll launch a new suite of tools for developers intending to help research, market, monetize, and engage users. And while it's late to the game, it hopes you'll use them. #mobileyodel

Decided to pen my thoughts about my time actively curating content onto Flipboard. Would be great to see some of these improvements but if they aren't, at least it's good to get it out of my head. :)

As an frequent user of Flipboard, I have some thoughts on how to advance the product and make it more useful especially to those who self-curate and publish.

Decided to jot down my thoughts about what I think the potential is for Facebook entering the enterprise space with "Work". Good way to attract more developers and reach out to the next 5 billion. But is it too little too late?

With the introduction of Work, Facebook wants to bring together your personal personas with the professional one in order to better manage your life and data.

Finished reading +Nicholas Carlson's book "Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo". The book is really compelling and shines a light on the troubled past of one of Silicon Valley's iconic companies, especially one that's 20-years old. It paints a pretty good picture to help you come closer to understanding the situation and whether or not there's any real hope for this company.
