I just finished reading “Carrion Comfort” by Dan Simmons today. I really enjoyed it! This was a great recommendation from my rock climbing friend Max. It’s a fascinating horror story built around essentially a cabal of mind control vampires. The concept sounds cheesy, but the execution was really good. The big thing Mr. Simmons did in this book was to really bring the victims to life.… read more ““Carrion Comfort” Review”
I have built an incredibly powerful new SEO tool that brings high rankings quickly. I am beginning rolling it out to my customers. I am happy to talk to anyone interested in using it, but each person must sign my strict NDA.
Ill play your game…

The single biggest area for me for a long time was recruiting. Recruiting continues to be a major time commitment for me most workdays.… read more “Operations Management”

I think we have one of the most stringent and effective recruiting processes of any company I have seen; certainly far superior to traditional outsourced recruiting.… read more “Hiring”
