Bad Defaults

Beware of Badgination

After 7 or so years as a Web Developer, I explored the idea of being a marketer. I have always had great respect for “Marketing Guys”. Even though calling them that is a huge insult (they typically are the most conscious of job titles and seemingly hold titles in high esteem) I think it is […]

Cambridge Analytica

I recently reviewed the video The Great Hack from Netflix. Upon looking to cite the link above as a source, I stumbled upon a top Google result (currently second only to the Netflix trailer page itself) called What Netflix’s ‘Great Hack’ Gets Wrong About Cambridge Analytica and subtitled: The British consulting firm didn’t steal the […]
