Protect Your Identity – For Free!

UPDATE: Since this post was written, freeidentityprotect.com has been sold to a new company. I have no idea if the statements below are still accurate or not, if it’s still free, or if it still does what I said it does.. but they were at the time of writing. If you regularly read my blog, […]

Another Identity Protection Failure

I’ve been reading a lot of identity protection blogs lately as part of my job, but today I ran across one that actually made me say “WTF” out loud.

Startup Review: Spottt – Free Link Exchange

Part of working for an internet startup company means that I sometimes get inundated with beta invitations to all kinds of new things.

Comcast.net Gets More Traffic Than Facebook?

That’s right. According to website magazine’s top trafficked website list, Comcast.net comes in at #14. That’s higher than Facebook (18) Amazon (19) CNN(21) and Apple(50). So how do they do it?

Do We Really Need .post ?

I was reading on slashdot earlier about a plan for the .post internet address. It would be open only to actual post offices – attempting to build trust. But why? Is this really the best approach? Should we count on every post office to make their own website and then make it work? That sounds […]

My Thought Blog (ok it’s just a twitter feed)

If you talk to me on AIM or MSN you’ll know that I’m constantly saying little things like “wow, look at this news article” or “heh, check out this quote.” I’m sure I annoy a lot of you, but if you’re somebody who actually likes my tidbits of information you’re in luck! Starting today, I […]
