Plugin Contest (aka how I will beat @Norcross like a drum)

So it has been awhile since I last developed a WordPress Plugin for free. Sure I have done dozens for clients, but it has been awhile since I have given one away. But soon all of that will change. Starting April 1st I am entering myself into a two man competition with my buddy Andrew […]

Does Google Sell Ads To Other Search Engine SERPs?

Today I did a Google query for “equal housing logo requirements” and a funny looking ad caught my eye. As you can see from the screen shot, is buying ad space for the term “equal housing logo requirements”. When I saw this I thought, I wonder if Ask is getting into the real estate […]

I Love But, Probably Won’t Use it Much.

  The amazing Tony Adam sent me an invite to the private beta of last night, and I will admit, I was planning on being disappointed. Maybe it was my recent troubles with Quora that made me skeptical, but for some reason I wasn’t expecting much. Boy was I wrong. is a beautifully […]
