34: No One Wants To Be That Douchebag
I rant about new publishing platforms, why their mission statements mean nothing, how once the mainstream media gets on-board that it’s all over for the ‘little guys’ and worst of all, how we the users stupidly get duped by them time and time again.
In addition, I quickly review Google Now for iOS, comment on the recent hands-on reviews of Google Glass, extol on the utter futility of regaining a supposedly “lost” humanity by spending a year without the internet, and rant about the haters who don’t understand what Kickstarter essentially is when lauding celebrity projects.
