June 26th, 2012 No Comments

Any modicum of success I’ve had professionally is because I guess people like me.  People like me because they know they can trust me.  They can trust me because I always try to do what I say I’m going to do.  I say “try” because sometimes things go wrong.  Sometimes out of my control.  When [...]

May 15th, 2012 No Comments

Three-dimensional mobile advertising is on its way!  I just read that hundreds of millions of Chinese are already all over this new technology and an acquisition announced last week is betting that we Americans will be getting into it too.
