Introduce Yourself  - 
Got an e-mail from the Googs and saw Washington DC had some Local Guide meetups, got jealous, and hoping Baltimore folks may pull together and do the same. Have there been any in this group?

I live in Fells Pointer and just joined this community today!

Here it is. The most brilliantly idiotic and ironically accurate support page of all-time. I found out the hard way.

Welp, I was attempting to kindly reply to +Chris Sewell's post that called out +Phandroid for accidentally failing to source an image when I suddenly found that he made a new post calling me an asshole and then turned off comments on both posts.

I'd like to say that I think Chris is a good person that means well... but I've given up on that. I've got some opinions and theories, but refuse to waste any more energy toilet-bowling in the black-hole of idiocy that every conversation with him creates.

I've left the original reply I prepared below, but won't waste any more time dealing with him. I'm leaving the comments open, as I've got nothing to hide- errant insults only serve to further prove my point.


+Chris Sewell many of your assumptions are wrong.

The insinuation that an entity can be too small to sue is delightfully ignorant and pretending copyright laws are entirely black-and-white issues suggest you're either uninformed or disingenuous.

On the one hand, I can have a blogger make an honest mistake and then we get sued for $XX,XXX simply because the mistake was made, without regard to the circumstance or details. Yes this has happened to us.

On the other hand, companies with tens of million of dollars in angel investment are building entire businesses based off stealing our content, but because they've got hotshot lawyers and know the loopholes, we're shit-out-of-luck. Yes, I can give you specific examples (feel free to message me).

This issue affects us every day, at both ends. It's just one of the many things we've got to constantly consider while simultaneously facing diabolical hassling for not posting news fast enough and making tiny mistakes or typos.

You'll likely say "cry me a river" or "boohoo" or make some other dismissive comment and that's fine. Perhaps even warranted. I'd just ask people reading this post to realize things are often easier said than done.

While I appreciate the fundamentals behind your criticism and take them to heart, I also take issue with the condescending tone with which you make light of our effort. We work our asses off. We try our best. We could do better. We make mistakes. We fix our mistakes and try to put procedures in place to prevent future mistakes. That last bit we may not do particularly well, but I can and will take personal responsibility for that. We're not perfect, but I'm proud of the work we do and proud of our team.

The amount of tongue-in-cheek dickishness, unwarranted negativity, and elephant walking pageantry in the Android community/blogosphere is nauseating. I try my best to steer clear of it, am tempted by +nick martin's #basemodelblog bait and related +1s, but I'll stay the course.

As you noted, we do correct our mistakes and reply to these accusations with candid vigor... because we care. We're equally invested in trying to do the right thing. We may share a difference of opinion, but I do thank you for the criticism. I wish it was private, but I'll admit you make fair points in defense of posting it publicly. Annoying as hell, but fair.

Thanks again.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some procedural documents to update.

+Rob Jackson​ I would just like to say that you show great professionalism in this post. Good job stating your case, taking the sword and not taking the bait and stooping down. Keep leading your team and making the Android community stronger.

Can't wait to release this on the Play Store!
So... I have been working with +Rob Jackson and the +Android Forums team on a new application and here is the final icon. 😍 This is a +Michael Cook original! It has been a pleasure working with him as I know I have learned a lot about design with just the design discussion process.

Soon to be released on Google Play Store for everyone to join our beta testing.

Any guesses on what this beautiful Material icon represents? Oh, VIPs on already have had access to this app for a few weeks now.

First geolocated mobile game? HAHAHAHAHAH...

That's not only poor form, false advertising, and a terrible marketing gimmick, it also just makes you look like a complete clown. E-mail marked as spam but I wish there was a "marked as idiot" button.

There aren't many people I dislike more than Tom Brady. And now I like him even less.
Only Tom Brady can find himself suspended for switching from Android to iPhone.
What happens when the NFL's most accomplished quarterback -- the New England Patriots' Tom Brady -- replaces his Samsung phone with an iPhone 6? He gets suspended for 4 games.

Explaining cool new Android/Chrome feature? Or auditioning to be the voice artist for the world's most boring movie trailer?

Both, I think.

I'm a web/tech entrepreneur from Baltimore, MD
My name is Rob Jackson and I own Neverstill Media, the parent company of websites such as,, and many others in the Consumer Tech, Gaming, and Lifestyle markets.

I'm a tech loving early adopter who prides himself on creativity, loves traveling, and never underestimates the value of delicious food and a large glass of red wine. I love to learn, meet new people, laugh, and make other people laugh, which are some of the reasons I'm on G+.

I'd be perfect for the following types of circles:
  • Android
  • Baltimore
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Tech
  • Travel
  • Web Marketing
I've got lots of other interests as well, such as Sports, Gaming, Photography, and Cooking among others, but I don't currently post a ton about those topics. However one fun thing I like to do is related to my love of music.

I've started a series of music posts every Tuesday called #TuesdayTunes. This is the day new music albums are released. Each Tuesday I purchase at least one new album from Google Music, sometimes asking for follower feedback, and share it with my followers. Thanks to Google's "One Free Play" format, everyone is able to listen tot he full album one time through.

At some point I hope to get my personal website up and running, but there are about 10 million other projects on my running idea slash progress list. My mind is always on overdrive - which is not only a gift and a curse - but also one of the reasons my company is named Neverstill.
