I rant about Amazon’s newly announced ‘Kindle Unlimited’ subscription service, why it only serves a niche demographic as binge reading books is much different than binge watching television, and how unknown authors should applaud their opportunities to expand their reach on this platform rather than complain about potential income loss.
In addition, I taunt AirBNB’s founder on the self-importance of the company’s new logo, share a much more effective way to cancel Comcast service over the phone, explain why having “fans” organize a convention will nearly always result in a clusterfuck, express my complete befuddlement over a VC’s initiative to split California into six states, and get into a political diatribe that most Americans do not truly understand the concept of war.
