    DBA

    Last month the shareholders decided I should not (yet) create a corporation. I was surprised, but I appreciate the expertise of my shareholders who voted to reduce complexity.

  • Social Media Dark Mode

    Social Media Dark Mode

    We know social media is bad for society but we use it anyway. As much as I love connecting with people, doing so in an environment that is actively harmful feels like too high a price. How should a person exist online? That is the question I put to my shareholders in April of 2022. […]
