Good sales copy for a non-market

Good sales copy for a non-market

Where's your tribe

Where’s your tribe

I just finished reading Tribes by Seth Godin last night. I learned a lot from it, but I think I could have learned a lot more. The book felt disjointed. In my opinion, the last third of the book provided the most value. What I most liked about this book was that it encouraged me […]

Outsourcing Expertise aka: The Big Web Blunder

Outsourcing Expertise aka: The Big Web Blunder

In the spring of 2000 I cut my teeth in web “programming” when I built intel.com. At the time I was working for a prestigious ad agency in Salt Lake City (DSW or EURO RSCG DSW Partners). I began working under another developer since it was the first time I had ever written any software […]
