What Twitter is missing
These are some features that, while possible in third-party applications, I believe should be integrated into the main Twitter product. Read Later Sure, the favorite button does the trick, but I want my “favorites” to only be my favorite tweets. Instead, my “favorites” often turn out to be tweets I want to go back to when I’m on my laptop. A simple “read...
My diary is moving too slow
I keep a diary, there, it’s out. I’ve loved Momento from the first time I opened it. It’s the perfect diary for a person like me, syncing my Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare feeds alongside my personal entries…so awesome.[[MORE]] Unfortunately, as the title states, Momento is moving too slow for my taste. I’m afraid it’ll soon to get passed up by copycat apps...
I've consumed enough
Enough blog posts, enough tweets, enough signing up for every new startup, enough of all this consumption…it’s time to start creating (more). I’m know I’m not alone in my ridiculous amount of consumption, looking around the average classroom at my university confirms that. Any student with a smartphone (the majority) is constantly texting, checking Twitter/Facebook,...

Thoughts on Drake's "Take Care"
I’m sure many who know me, and my music tastes, are a bit surprised that I’m not giving my thoughts on Childish Gambino’s Camp… This is for two reasons: 1) It can be summed up in one word: “AMAZING” 2) My friend Zach already did 10x what I could ever do here. With that, let’s talk about Take Care. Take Care is Drake’s sophomore album which released...

Viewers vs. Doers: The Rise of Spectatoritis People are biased against creative ideas, study finds If You Can Think, Design & Code, You Win How College Students Are Spending Their Money Administrators Ate My Tuition So What Should Big 12 Schools Do?

Awesome video taking a peek at Beta Theta Pi’s new brand identity, must watch if interested marketing. I guess I need to redesign my chapter’s website now!
Joining the hustle at Zaarly
The past two weeks have been busy for me, but at the same time they’ve been extremely exciting. I recently joined on to Zaarly for the summer! I began my role as the company’s first intern on June 6th at their Kansas City headquarters. That’s less than two weeks ago…what could I have learned already, right? Well, I’m not so sure that was only two weeks ago… In...
Follow-up: Think Big Kansas City
On Tuesday I was lucky enough to attend Think Big Kansas City downtown at the Kansas City Convention Center. I was lucky enough to win two $250 tickets to the event through a Twitter contest after having my eye on attending for a couple of months. I don’t want to get off on a tangent, but I’m amazed over and over by the opportunities that social media can give people to reach their...
Mobile payments revolutionized, again?
BOOM. Today, Square announced the future of commerce…or so I think. Then again, until this morning I was rather confident that Near Field Communication would be the future of the mobile payment ecosystem. Heck, I wrote a 10+ page report on NFC last semester, but in my eyes it has been +1’d.[[MORE]] This morning at TechCrunch Disrupt, Jack Dorsey (Co-founder of Twitter and an idol of...
