when an app isn’t an app

medium.com — in 2009, i was diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma. i turned to twitter as my outlet. i was able to connect with folks and ask for help, take my mind off of things and it basically kept me feeling safe and sane. that's why i use the shit out of twitter.

seriously, ama - Unlocking the safe. - Medium

medium.com — on monday (3/9/15) , i'll be doing an AMA on reddit titled: "I'm getting an Auto Stem Cell Transplant AMA" it'll be at 3pm ET/12pm PT i'll be answering all the things. it happens to be the day that i'm going back into the hospital for phase two, getting my collected stem cells back.

That all stops now, thanks to the creators of "Sarcastic Font", which is italics, but in reverse.

about this whole anonymity thing

medium.com — post secret. whisper. secret. rumr. anonymity is all the rage these days in the investment/tech community. these are apps created by folks who have been somewhat public during their careers, creating something that they think "the kids" will like. so far, it hasn't taken off. and it won't.
