Digital Ammunition Part 2 Time to pick this crazy idea back up and put some meat on the bare bones I threw out there last week... (Note: If you missed Part 1 of this series you can read it here.) So to recap just a bit, last week I proposed this idea of "Digital Ammunition" that can [...]

Digital Ammunition. To most people, those words don't fit together: digital ammunition... What does that even mean? Everyone knows you can't have something physical like ammunition combined with something... well, uh digital. Right? Let's just say that used to be the case. But the world is changing. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look [...]

Corporations vs. Freedom

If there is one philosophical ideal running through my life it can be summed up in one word: Freedom (I suspect this may be the same for you). I believe in freedom in all its different forms: personal freedom, financial freedom and the freedom to make your own way in the world. The freedom to [...]

Put a Little Training in your Life

Political Discrimination by the Banking Industry

Political discrimination in by large corporations is real - I'm a victim of it.

I just got off the phone with a guy that was interested in our service but didn’t quite understand it. That happens a lot. When your company does something completely different from everyone else, people often have a hard time digesting it and adapting it to their existing world models. In our case, a different [...]
