For the 70 million young people known as "Generation Y," the Internet is becoming the favored place to hang out with friends, play games, listen to music and even shop. That's why the online teen market has become as crowded as a Saturday afternoon at the mall.

Ever find yourself squirming after that that 32 ounce diet Pepsi at the movies and being totally conflicted? Should you run now and risk missing this scene? Should you wait for the action to slow down? Dan Florio and his wife were having date night at the movies when he asked himself those same questions. Then he thought…what if there was a place to go, a website, that listed times in each movie that one could easily miss while running to the bathroom to empty their poor bladders. This was the genesis of RunPee.com, a internet sensation that seems oddly suited to a programmer who’s worked at as a Mission Director at the United Space Academy in Huntsville, a prototype developer for X Box in Seattle, a nude model for a class at Northern Arizona University and renegade who’s lived in a tent during a semester in college as a way to afford a Dell laptop and who slept for 3 months in the back of his pathfinder in a library parking lot while starting his work on Xbox. Every … [Read more...] about A business built on entertainment and well…Pee
“Streaming brings new people out to the shows to discover new music.” If you want to know how a modern band can successfully cultivate an ever-growing loyal and far-reaching fanbase amidst today’s fractured and fragmented music marketplace, you need look no further than O.A.R. These jam-band titans have long understood how to embrace the community that follows them by encouraging taping and trading from the very beginning, one of the many reasons O.A.R. stunned the music scene when the band from OSU (by way of Rockville, Maryland) first sold out Madison Square Garden in 2006.To celebrate two decades of their escalating achievements, O.A.R.

The contents of X.X. are split between band and fan-favorite studio cuts (the heartfelt acoustified call of Peace, the know when to fold ’em bliss of That Was a Crazy Game of Poker), a full … [Read more...] about How streaming has helped O.A.R. spread their jams and celebrate ‘XX’
I was raking leaves in my yard the other weekend when I observed a black SUV slowly idling down the street. I didn't recognize the vehicle and it looked out of place as though the driver were confused about where to go... or possibly casing houses to rob (hey, I'm a crime writer by nature). The car pulled up to me and the passenger window went down. An older gentleman politely inquired if I knew where a certain nearby street was located. I told him how to get there and he thanked me profusely then drove off.That got me thinking that I hadn't been asked for directions in years, since most people now rely on their mobile devices for maps and directions. I reflected that I wouldn't have had the pleasant encounter with that grateful driver if he had been using a device to guide him, and that started a train of thought about how mobile devices are changing society. What has improved us, and what are we missing out on? 1. We always know how to get thereIt's great to throw out the paper … [Read more...] about 10 ways mobile devices are changing society
