Jerrick's Journey from Idea to Reality
Cultural revolutions are often followed in history by innovation sprints. Consider the printing press. It took the world 561 years — a blink of an eye relative to human history — to go from Gutenberg's great invention in 1440 to listening to Beethoven on an iPod in 2001.

CES 2019 RecapTop Story - January 2019
I spent the last week with my team at the world's largest gathering for those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies: CES. It's a universe of innovation and inspiration, where capital-hungry startups in Eureka Park can get noticed by venture capitalists, and tech giants can flex their trade show budgets. We are more dependent on technology than ever; our needs are starting to mirror our wants.

The Donald Trump Pictures
I am no Nick Denton, and Donald Trump is no Hulk Hogan, but I do have some candid fun pictures of a pair of breasts and The Donald, or as his rude, foul mouthed thug of an advisor Michael Cohen asked me to call him, “Mr. Trump.” I believe Cohen claims he is an attorney, but like the birther question, no one has seen his degree. I first found the pictures in 2012 while unpacking hundreds of boxes I acquired in what would turn out to be the best trade of my career. I had purchased the Guccione Collection, the private works of the late media magnate and artist Bob Guccione, who had once ranked as one of the wealthiest men in America.
