sms text

"I can still use text messaging while I'm traveling" my friend just said, "I just have to use wifi".  True or false? The answer is both.  But you'd better be careful. Can you use SMS messaging over wifi using your regular cellular service? No!  You will get charged data roaming charges if you step off [...] Read More ... Read More ...

coworking-movement-wework-nyc

Co-working spaces have popped up all over the globe.  I have personally been working out of WeWork for over 3 years out of NYC. We started as a small, invite-only, incubation space in WeWork Soho.  Our space was more or less like your typical co-working space for startups, called WeWork Labs. Since 2011, WeWork has [...] Read More ... Read More ...

Most people have horror stories.   Has this ever happened to you?  You have said things like: People are unreliable, they lie about the job they can take on, they disappear without a trace, they stole your code, the quality of work is shamelessly poor, and so on. You are not alone.  Why, in a [...] Read More ... Read More ...

I like to travel solo and am very independent.  I love having experiences, overcoming the unexpected, challenging myself and figuring things out. I also love that you meet random strangers who become friends in a very short period of time. Lately I've been thinking a lot about community and just how important it is to [...] Read More ...

This is one of the big difference between travelers and "air commuters": Travelers think about thing like exercise. They think long-term in terms of travel, and invest their time accordingly. These are the folks you see running on the beach, not laying down and tanning beside it. The good news is, there are lots of [...] Read More ... Read More ...

Growth hacking is seriously overrated. In fact, I think it's one of the worst effects of modern tech culture. Software developers are over valued, and business developers are under valued. This gives software developers a giant ego and false sense of worth.  I'm not saying developers are schmucks, but not all developers are not worth [...] Read More ... Read More ...

While away, communicating and staying in touch with friends and family can seem daunting. I've been shopping for the best applications for keeping in touch, and these are the best ones I've found. For business, some of these apps may not apply. But here's a list of the apps that I've found helpful most of [...] Read More ... Read More ...

IGNITE Santiago: Introducing the Anywhere Startup in Santiago, Chile | Live Work Anywhere

20 slides, 15 seconds each slide, 5 minutes. That's the format for IGNITE. An IGNITE talk reminds me of a TEDX talk or the old Gnomedex run by Chris Pirillo. Except that it's even more niche. It's likely derived from the PechaKucha format, in which designers were challenged to talk with 20 slides auto-advancing after [...] Read More ... Read More ...

a startup is NOT a company live work anywhere

I was just at an event last night where we went around the room and introduced ourselves. Many people talked about their "company." It's hard to tell if they were talking about the company they worked for, the piece of code they were working on, or the group of friends they worked with to raise [...] Read More ... Read More ...
