Podcast as a tool for gaining exposure and brand awareness

I found this article interesting.  In a time when companies are so obsessed with stats and direct links, it feels that people lose their way in what is valuable from a marketing perspective.

I like this from Ghost, a publication platform, who seem really ethical in the way they do things.  It’s a breath of fresh air to see ethical and non profit companies compete against other for profit and funded companies.  These kind of stories inspire me. While the first few years were pretty frantic to get

Tracking after uninstalling apps

I have a problem that I want to learn so much about things and never have the time.  I’m intrigued by ethics atm and in my daily reading activities I keep coming across things that break what I feel is crossing the ethics line. Uninstall tracking may violate Apple and Google policies against ad-focused use

A Modest Privacy Protection Proposal

I’m feeling increasingly uncomfortable about privacy and ethics of tech companies (and people!).  Mostly posting this here as a reminder for myself to revisit shortly. It’s hard to retain much privacy in the information age — the internet has a nearly perfect limitless memory and we’re placing a ton of sensitive data onto it. After being swatted in
