That White Thing
Jan 7, 2018, 6:09 PM
It was 2004. I decided to buy a Mac. It was an iBook G4.

I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Yann Ilunga on the 360 Entrepreneur Podcast.

It was 2012. Prince was still alive and iOS 6 was about to be released. There were rumors of a bigger iPhone. They’d have called it “iPhone 5”.

I spent most of the last week harvesting grapes. Yep, I don’t just make software. I also make wine.
Moving many crates can take a toll on your backbone. In spite of that, harvesting is fun. The best part is that, while you harvest,...

Remember that running a taxi is a fine sort of business, but don't expect to turn it into a cruise ship. And vice versa.
