    Television Advertising Rethought

    Advertising dispersed within television shows is nothing new, but as advertisers, traditional TV networks, and streaming media services struggle to define how new mediums will operate (and profit), interesting things are happening. No longer as standard do we receive two-to-three commercial breaks during a 30 minute broadcast, where the show...

    Nepali Spirit

    Curious, welcoming, inquisitive, friendly, outgoing, hardworking, resilient, and friendly again for good measure – these are all words that very well describe Nepali people.

    Moore’s Law is an observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles roughly every two years. Coined about 1970, it’s held relatively true since then, and along with this doubling, price drops significantly as well during that period. This has meant a rapid growth in consumer...

    Ten 2000s

    First off, figuring out what to call the time period between 2000-2009 is way tougher than I thought. A simple search online offers some suggestions, varying from kinda-makes-sense to WTF?

    Starting a Travel Podcast

    Even when taking time off or enjoying a relaxing day it seems my mind’s usually ticking along about a project, book, plan, or something I’d like to do. It would be nice to be able to entirely shut off the nerve center in this respect at times, but then again...
