One of the best moments of the last ten days was when I met up with my old colleague Phil Acton. We worked together in London back in 2005 and 2006, and oh, the stories we could tell about one another. I hadn’t seen Phil for three years, so was thrilled he was in town […]
Say what you will about Seth Godin, he sure does bring the goods on a consistent basis. To wit: This, which applies to business and every other part of life:
You don’t want everyone. You want the right someone.
Someone who cares about what you do. Someone who will make a contribution that matters. Someone who will […]
When I left Qik on October 1, I knew one thing: I didn’t want a new job. In the words of SAP and Better Place founder Shai Agassi:
Once you have a mission, you can’t go back to having a job.

I’m very lucky to have my own personal tour guide here - thanks to Kelly for the hook-up! - a fun soldier who’s been driving me around the island in his Jeep and getting me the hell out of Eurotrash nouveau riche-infested Waikiki. (I’m all for riche of any kind, but didn’t fly to the […]
I have never felt guilty of my ability. I have never felt guilty of my mind. I have never felt guilty of being a man. I accepted no unearned guilt, and thus was free to earn and to know my own value.
You can mock me for going all Randian, but I think women REALLY need […]
My London chum Clive Davis has a new blog, where I found this great bit:
