GP @GoogleVentures. Columnist @TechCrunch. The artist formerly known as @ParisLemon. A man of few words. Except when writing.

Hacking The Tweet Stream — With pictures of text. Weird, I know. The single greatest strength of Twitter has always been its simplicity. It has been fascinating over the years to watch the company both adhere to this in some cases and stray from this in others.

Some Thoughts On The Kindle Voyage And Amazon’s Product Evolution — Yesterday, I made a quick comment that I thought Amazon's Kindle was now a "really, really good" product. This shocked a few people. I assume because of my predilection for Apple products, some think I would view something by Amazon - a company with a recent history of questionable product choices, to put it mildly - as crap.

End Of An Error-Uh? — The fourth quarter of Michigan's 42-28 loss at Ohio State was the epitome of the entire season. Which is to say, a disaster. With Ohio State's starting quarterback (a Heisman hopeful) out of the game with an injury, one would think Michigan, which had been playing well all game, could summon the will to rally from a 28-21 hole and beat their biggest rivals in a very meaningful game for them.

Ten - Five Hundred Words - Medium — It was a Tuesday night in Los Angeles, I had just come home from the gym. That city had been my home for just three months, I knew basically no one. I was bored. I opened up a web browser and started to type. 10 years later, I'm still typing.

The Oddness Of Unboxing — I have this weird problem which a lot of people I know in the tech scene won't find all that weird but nearly every single other person I know will. I cannot open anything I get without first taking a picture of it in its box.

A Few Thoughts On WatchKit And The Initial Apple Watch — The second card has been turned over. A couple months after Apple Watch was unveiled to the world, we now get a full look into WatchKit, the SDK that will dictate what we can actually do with the Apple Watch - both as developers and users - when it's launched at some point in "early" 2015.

The goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can... — The goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us.-- Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, speaking to GQ for a profile of Netflix chief Reed Hastings. This will go down as the year that HBO either made the right choice or the wrong choice not to go after the stand-alone Netflix model.

I’ll stand a little bit harsh, I don’t see it as... — I'll stand a little bit harsh, I don't see it as flattery. When you're doing something for the first time, you don't know it's gonna work, you spend 7 or 8 years working on something, and then it's copied. I think it is really straightforward. It is theft and it is lazy.

On Magazines and the iPad — Justin Williams is exactly right about the horrible state of magazines on the iPad today. Oh. He wrote this in 2011? Shit. Well then I'm exactly right on the horrible state of magazines on the iPad today. Oh. I wrote this in 2012? Fuck. Seriously guys, pull your heads out of your asses or die trying.

The Mountain And The Viper — The iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 After much deliberation, I decided to buy the iPhone 6 Plus on opening day. But a shipping mishap altered my fate, and I found myself the owner of an iPhone 6 instead. A few days later, the 6 Plus came.

@johnolilly @charlietuna @mat nice filter. That's the next big thing: text picture filters.

@ryanchris could be. Seems like Harbaugh was pie-in-the-sky a few weeks ago and Les was the home run hire they'd go after. All that changed.

...basically all stops are being pulled out to make it happen. Family, friends, money all aligned behind Michigan. Here's hoping. #GoBlue

Still feels like a stretch that he would leave the NFL after being SO close to winning a Super Bowl (as his nemesis did last year). But...

@evansolomon well, no. But multiple places now basically reporting as fact. Also, I think it's $49M! (Fitting.)

So... Harbaugh's dad is pushing him to go to Michigan. His wife is signed off. He has an offer which will pay him more than any NFL coach...

"Harbaugh's wife is said to be open and on board to him going back to Ann Arbor if that's what he wants, per sources"…
