This is the best post I've written so far this year. See if you agree!
Marketing technology is a chaotic mess for most small- and medium-sized businesses. Will consolidation help?

Using "they" as a singular pronoun isn't a matter of gender: it's just plain math.

Great new company in the tiny town of Durango. Can they be the next Billion-dollar exit? Check out +gitprime.
GitPrime is small and also works in what seems like a very narrow niche.

My first time appearing on Entrepreneur.com, and I have to do it with an article that will anger many of my writer friends. Essentially I say that businesses need to lower their standards to get their blogging done.

By working with a writer, gaining companywide buy-in and tossing taste aside, you can be confident your blog will propel your business forward.

I think your writer friends should be happy, not angry. I believe your article is interesting but I perceive a slant in favor of writers...

This is way Inside Baseball, but for those following the silly feud between ADP and Zenefits, this is really good news.
ADP and Zenefits settle their lawsuits, and now may work toward a solution

Great company, Notion, and a great chance to meet the CEO and founder.
The security aspects of this device are the first feature, but it can do much more, too.

Here's a great story about telling a story. Meta, I know, but really worth the read from the incomparable +Patrick Armitage .

Went in to get a seat belt unstuck. They said the only option was to replace the whole thing for $700. They also found another $3,000 worth of repairs, all of them questionable. I checked the 'net and fixed the seat belt with a screwdriver. They then charged us $120 to come up with all these bogus repairs, and charged us $12 for materials. That's right: they didn't do any work, and still charged us for materials. We've had questionable dealings with them in the past, we only went there this time because we thought they'd fix a clear safety issue and charge VW, not us, but now when we do go to a dealer we'll be going to the other side of town because these people are not to be trusted.

They really love dogs there, and our little buddy always runs to get there, and then comes home dog tired. They understand dogs, and love them!

I had a bad case of the flu, and he did his homework to look up the latest from the health department about what medicine was actually working for my kind of flu. Treated me as an individual, and then followed up with a call later on. The best kind of local family doctor I could hope for.
