Making News: New Indiana Primary Op-Ed, Connecticut Radio This AM, and More!

I’m pleased to report that this morning, Lifezette.com posted my latest op-ed article.  It takes a close look at Indiana’s economy and explains that, if trade issues are crucial to Hoosier state voters, the contest tomorrow could doom Texas Senator Ted Cruz’ remaining hopes for the Republican presidential nomination and hand the crown to front-runner Donald Trump.   163 more words

뭐 내가 매일같이 쫓는건 아니지만 요즘들어 이 양반 기사가 나오면 재미있게 보고 있다.. 북쪽나라 수상인데.. 참 생각해보면 기막힌 정치인인것 같다…

뭐 내가 북쪽에 사는 것도 아니고 그나라 국민도 아니니 자세한 내막을 알리는 없어 잘하고 있는지 못하는지는 논외로 하고..

배경을 보면 아버지가 총리로 재임중이던 기간에 “중립구역”인 수도에서 수상의 아들로 태어났는데, 가족력도 영+불의 혼합에 공부도 동서에서 다했고.. 결론적으로는 본인도 총리가 되었는데 – 사진의 인터뷰 기사에서도 나오듯 참 기막히게 말을 잘한다.. 우연히 이 양반 연설하는 비디오를 봤는데 어쩜 저럴수가 하고 소름이 쫙…

아마 바마 아저씨 이후로 말잘하는 사람은 처음 본듯.. 말그대로 이런걸 보고 professional politician이라고 하나보다라고 생각했다..




最近在《Businessweek》上讀了一篇文章「Inside Facebook’s Decision to Blow Up the Like Button」,介紹負責這個將面書上的「Like」升呢到「Reaction」的舵手 Chris Cox。

即使你不是面書的用家都知道它「like」的厲害之處,簡直可以說是界定了過去這年代的數碼文化;現在當你要對別人表示讚賞,再講「做得好」就 out 啦!當然是說「俾個 like 你!」

不過,有些時候就比較難做,例如朋友寫了一篇賺人熱淚的 post 去悼念剛過身的寵物,如果我想對朋友作情感上的鼓勵,那麼我應該「like」個 post 還是不該?「讚好 」人家的傷心事好似邏輯上不合情理。也正因為如此,作為 Chief Product Officer 的 Chris 就帶領著這個名為「Reaction」的變革。 42 more words


"The Sustainable, Locally Sourced, Free-Range, Humanely Raised, Made-to-Order, TOXIC Burrito"

I apologize to whomever else did Chipotle, as I had already had this post written before I saw someone else used the same company.

I was a bit of a late bloomer with the whole Chipotle fad. 752 more words

About a month after I left the Post, I sent an e-mail with the subject line “Joining the club” to another tech columnist who had been sent packing by his longtime employer a year and a half earlier. 336 more words


American Publishing in Decline

This situation makes me cry. I have been a subscriber of Newsweek, BusinessWeek, and Los Angeles Times for decades.

A few years ago, in 2008, there was a columnist in BusinessWeek magazine who wrote about the decline in the print media and how it would affect even some of the largest news outlets. 277 more words
