UX + design. Writing + reading. Coffee + booze. Climbing + falling.

Hip-hop duo Run the Jewels (El-P, Killer Mike) present a master class in writing on-brand email communication, audience targeting, and the merging of content and commerce. And straight ballin’.

You Know You’re a Postmodernist When…

Amazon has to post a statement about a perceived misprint in your book, but really, it’s just you being clever.

Product Alert: This book does not contain a misprint on page 39. We have received complaints from customers that they have received misprinted editions because of the way the story changes direction in the middle of a word on page 39 (for Kindle readers, the end of the first section). This is not a misprint or error. It is the way the author has written the book. He returns to the seemingly abandoned storyline later in the book.
