This has long been one of my favorite slides in 29th Street Publishing's deck. Lev, not quite two, reads the New York Times' Book Review while sitting in his mother's lap. The point of the slide is that reading apps... Continue reading

Overheard at Sundance, 2007: No seriously, hear me out. Let's say Sith artifacts can enable their bearers to travel through time (there is semi-canonical precedent for this), why not reboot the franchise? I'm SURE I can get ABC on board,... Continue reading

I agree with you. - I didn't think this through enough before posting. But there are a ton of things that the Postal Service could sell that they don't. For starters, business services - figure out what all those people lined up want and figure out how to package it up! This isn't just return receipt & pick-up, this is basic services like reliable address forwarding, auto-responder postcards when you move, etc. What about more reliable mail delivery TO you, not just from you? I'd pay another .50c for every bill & check to make sure they arrived in a timely manner.
