LinkedIn is the sign of the bubble

LinkedIn is the sign of the bubble

Whenever someone asks me if we’re in another dot-com bubble, I firmly say no.  The LinkedIn IPO has given me pause.  Any time ten billion dollars in value is divined from 15 million dollars in earnings, even the most optimistic among us starts looking 
for a reason.

Cameras are irrelevant and will die within a year

Cameras are irrelevant and will die within a year

I’m struck by how the introduction of higher quality camera hardware, better camera apps, and photo editing apps has made the iPhone clearly my camera of choice. Even my photog wife rarely hauls out the slr these days. I would have never caught this photo of my son jumping off a fountain near Strawberry Fields in Central Park on a regular camera. Not a chance.

Within 1 year buying a camera will be akin to buying an mp3 player today. You will only do it if A) it’s for a child, B) you’re an idiot, or C) you are doing something reckless enough to not want your phone in the mix.

The countdown starts now.

Three out of five Instagrams are of food

Three out of five Instagrams are of food

The rest are of booze, self portraits, self portraits with friends, and self portraits with friends with booze.

No excuses

I attribute my success to this - I never gave or took any excuse.
Florence Nightingale

I read this quote and expected the attribution to be a pro athlete, tycoon, or politician, and yet I see Florence Nightingale.  It goes to show that all industries and efforts need tough leaders who hold themselves accountable.

Am I mensa or mental?

Am I mensa or mental?

After owning my car for an entire month, I finally figured out how to work the cup holders. I don’t know whether that makes me a stronger or weaker Mensa candidate.

When policy dwarfs common sense #DeltaAirlinesFail

Delta wouldn't check my bag when I was 55 minutes early for my flight. 60 is the cut off if you don't check bags online. Apparently if you check the box in online checkin you can check bags 50 minutes before. The response? Delta "I'm sorry sir. There's nothing I can do. Your bag would never make it to the plane". Me: "But if I had checked that box online?" Delta: "Oh, then your bag would make it. For sure."
Worthless Delta Ticket Agent Alicia at JFK. Backed up by equally worthless Marina V, her supervisor.

Do me a favor and fly United, American, or if you really like yourself: Virgin America.
