Business rules are different now. Don't believe me? How are the banks in the United States doing? How are the three big car makers? How are small businesses doing? You want to keep marketing the way companies have been for the last fifty years? Not a good idea, I'm afraid.

Spotted on T-shirt at SXSW: "Selling out is the new keeping it real."

Fewer than 30 percent of Americans have passports. Anything we can do to help people see the world through a new perspective is great.
Until we get to a place where we have battery life that is more reliable, we can write applications that are more respectable to someone’s device. I think that’s what’s restricting us to creating the best application.
