As you'd expect, Colin Greenwood [Radiohead] can make one hell of a mix tape!  Great commentary on the story of every song. An awesome music list, made into a perfect two hour Sunday Morning listen.

You need to listen this week to catch the show.

Spent the evening with the new Google Nexus. Very impressed, love the form factor, and Google puts forward the power of Android with this one.

Convinced Apple really needs to play to the size, it feels like much more of a daily / hourly use product than iPad.

Great write-up on Forkly's new app launch - congrats to @Hiroprot&@BradyBecker. It's a beautiful app with some smart new twists on taste graph and social sharing.

A guest blog post I wrote for growmap.com, a great small business resource site.

Facebook is now just too much work compared to what I get/got out of it. "Asking more of me" (which is what the service now does) tipped it over the line. Facebook steps it up, just as I found myself going there less and less, and observe lower involvement from friends every time I go.

I also feel like the infectious Bret Taylor Open Graph religion from last year has been diffused - all new product seems calculated to take you more deeply into their vortex.

I'll still go - it's just too important to the industry to not stay connected, and one side of my friends are there and not on G+ or Twitter. But now when I go, it's with a "cultural anthropology" or product/business lens, but I'm personally disengaged.

Can they bring me back? Never say never, but I've seen this movie before.

Introduction
I've been involved with the information super highway since about '94, and before that tinkered with "new media" for a couple of years.

I've had the good fortune to occasionally be at the right place and time, surrounded by the right people. I've led the formation and development of three businesses - MapQuest, Jabber and Local Matters.

I still remain engaged and fascinated by the evolution of two themes - Location-based technology and Live Media.

I'm bringing these obsessions together in Closely Inc. my current start-up. I'm proud to say we won the 2013 #SXSW Appy Award for our new Mobile App, Perch - Best Mobile App for Businesses! 
Bragging rights
I own an Apple Newton and a Nortel Displayphone [300bps "voice/data terminal"]. Yes I'm that "experienced".
