South by Southwest (SXSW) is almost a month in the rearview mirror at this point, but for me it takes about as long to allow everything that I saw to sink in. So I wanted to recap some of my key takeaways about the industry and the event itself. I... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago I attended Jeff Pulver's #140 Conference in Detroit. I have to say that it was one of the more inspired gatherings of people that I've been to in some time. The more conferences I attend the more I find that any conference with the words... Continue reading

Thanks so much, David. It's good to be back. Definitely missed the people like yourself who are doing the work and putting the right thinking into the area. Hopefully I won't let you down.

Great advice Lewis. Keep it coming, this is invaluable information for people looking to write, but too intimidated by the process. You're guiding us through. (Maybe an ebook on the topic in the future?)
