Adjix: Monetize your shrinkage

Is “shrinkage” ever a good thing? Actually, Jerry Seinfeld notwithstanding, yes! If you don’t know about shrinkage as it applies to the internet, learn the basics first , then come back and learn how to make money with it. I’ll wait.

Dork Saves the Day

Regex's save the day

Pundits say you should produce original content but people visit when I embed xkcd comics in my blog.

Dofollows Part II

This post started as a follow-on comment to my post “Not All Dofollows are created Equal,” but it started to get long and linky, so it became a new post.

When Monkeys Fly Out My A$$ OR My TweetThis Hack

I was recently reading Guy Kawasaki’s blog post on how he uses Twitter. I was thinking, sure, Twitterfeed is great because it tweets my blog posts as me, but it would be even nicer if my awesome readers had a button to tweet my blog post as them in one click, i.e. without the brain . . . → Read More: When Monkeys Fly Out My A$$ OR My TweetThis Hack

User Interface Matters

One of my good friends related a story to me about some of the earliest Hewlett Packard programmable calculators in the early 80’s. When engaging in lengthy number crunching, the calculator would print “crunching” (or processing, or something) on the display, and every few seconds it would add a dot, so the user would know . . . → Read More: User Interface Matters
