"Corporate Ties" featured on Business Insider

I don't completely agree with the old adage "any press is good press," but I will say that it is true about 99 percent of the time. Being featured on Business Insider, which is one of the most prominent tech news sites on the Internet, can never be a bad thing, right?

Tell Congress: Don't censor the Web

Let's join Google, Wikipedia and others in telling Congress not to censor the web! Fighting online piracy is important. The most effective way to shut down pirate websites is through targeted legislation that cuts off their funding. There's no need to make American social networks, blogs and search engines censor the Internet or undermine the existing laws that have enabled the Web to thrive, creating millions of U.S. jobs.

Facebook giveaway for "Corporate Ties"

The Goodreads giveaway for Corporate Ties has been a huge success. I had 400 people sign up to receive a free copy of my new book. Of course, not everyone is on Goodreads, so I thought I'd also do a Facebook giveaway.

'The Developers' Kindle edition now available in 11,000 libraries

It's getting easier to check out e-books from U.S. libraries, now that Amazon recently announced that Kindle users could download e-books from 11,000 libraries. It's important to note that you don't have to have an actual Kindle to be a Kindle user; you can also use the free Kindle app available on many mobile devices, or the Kindle Cloud Reader from your browser.

New website lets you create your yearbook online

Building a yearbook can be an arduous task. In high school, clubs and/or classes compiled the yearly piece during months of development. Sometimes, however, it would be nice to create a simpler yearbook or possibly even just an individual book that you can share as a gift for friends or family members.

Crazy sea creatures have been around for awhile

Hopefully this gets to you before you open your inbox and see that it has been forwarded by 500 of your "closest" friends, including that guy from the gym who always tries to steal your towel.

People have reported receiving emails regarding bizarre sea creatures, apparently trudged up by the recent tsunami disaster. While the message does sound plausible, it is completely incorrect. Check out snopes.com for the full story.

Turtle in a hurry to cross Atlantic

Leading to the belief that even reptiles can spot amazing discount store sales, Fisher, a loggerhead turtle, has trekked over 4,000 miles in since July and should reach west Africa in the near future. There's no word just yet as to whether or not the sale will take place at a Wal-Mart or Kmart.

Fisher was released off the North Carolina coast and is being tracked by a satellite transmitter. The Marine Turtle Research Group is tracking him, and you can see the updates at Seaturtle.org.

Government ordered to save emails

Remember that email you sent to the random senator about spending money to build igloos in the desert? The bad news is that I don't think the interest groups can raise the $200 million you need for research funds. The good news is that the email could be read again 60 years from now and will never be deleted.

Gonna give you up? NEVER!

With the 10th anniversary of "The Developers" happening this year (right now, in fact!), I wanted to address a sensitive issue regarding Rick Astley.

I didn't invent the rickroll, at least, not directly.
