This is why the Internet is important: Inheritance Jewelry

My friend Danielle makes really awesome jewelry. And now she has her own website, Inheritance Jewelry. OK, granted, the website could use some work design-wise, but it’s still early days, she’s new to this world… This is what Web 2.0 REALLY means to me, why it’s REALLY important. It allows a young woman like Danielle […]

How To Really Use The Internet

I remember my first really big Internet “A-Ha!” moment like it was yesterday. It was about a decade ago, just after the DotCom crash, around the same time I first heard about blogging.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."
