As I publish issue 200, six years after starting this newsletter as the monthly-ish Serially Sporadic and four years after taking it weekly, it’s an apt time for time travel. The year was 2013. I had recently wrapped up a seven-year run with my corporate alma mater 360i when my alma mater Binghamton University reached out […]

  The Product Hunt newsletter headline as I write this is “TikTok as a Search Engine.” The Hustle went with a similar theme this week – “Google’s got competish.” Adorbs. The crux: Alphabet is touting how TikTok and Instagram are popular search engines for younger consumers, and per the logic of American-style capitalism, this benefits Alphabet by […]

  What did you do for the 4th of July weekend? I stayed home and wrote book reports. If that sounds like either a fabrication or a miserable way to spend a weekend, you don’t know me very well. I wrote 22 long-hand entries in my book report journal ranging from a couple of sentences […]

This isn’t to say that there’s anything wrong with Cannes (Sir Martin Sorrell of S4Capital disagrees; see why below).
