I rant about how Twitter’s IPO means infinitely more for bankers than actual users, why the Silicon Valley bubble culture was the real reason behind Everpix’s demise, and why T-Mobile shouldn’t be celebrating so much after adding a million more customers this past quarter.
In addition, I scold independent bookstores who are rejecting the sale of Kindles, why marketing to hipsters won’t get you very far, and how Google’s increasing push for major advertisers resulted in the debacle of the YouTube Music Awards.
