Backwards Writing

I’m the king of tossing out plans and then working out how to get to the end of those plans well after the announcement was made. It’s a fun way I’ve challenged myself again and again over the years. I’ve done it on a large-scale and a small-scale much to the delight and sometimes...

Rising From The YouTube

As part of this whole social media centralization campaign I’ve been waging, yesterday I took a look at my history with YouTube and the many false starts I’ve made over the years bringing video into the various projects I manage. It’s embarrassing how many times I’ve started and...
