Scott Galloway presented How Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google Manipulate Our Emotions as a TED Talk.
As with most new things, the potential for something to go terribly wrong exists. This time with Facebook’s live streaming. Earlier this month a man was shot and killed while streaming. It’s wasn’t the first time a death was broadcasted, with the Virginia newscasters being the first to come to mind, but it was the… Continue reading Live Streaming

… for Lent. I’ve decided to give up Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Bacon, and Beer for Lent.
