Welcome to BenWoods.com
If you found this page via Facebook, then congratulations! Stop by Brazos Bookstore between 3-4 pm Sunday, April 1, make a qualifying purchase (like, buy a book, not just a bookmark) and receive a free autographed copy of Corporate Ties! Pretty simple, right?
My first Corporate Ties book signing is in a somewhat strange place - Houston, Texas. I'll be at Brazos Bookstore at 3 pm on Sunday, April 1 - April Fools' Day!
Most people who know me realize I'm a huge college basketball fan. In order to celebrate the upcoming tournament, I've decided to have a "Corporate Ties" sale - $10 a book, free shipping! Just click the button below to order.
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?

As you have probably noticed, I haven't been writing as much on here lately. There is a reason for that: There are a few exciting things in the works over here, but I cannot divulge all of the information yet. Let's just say that besides a new book coming out, there's an entire foundation behind it, meaning a real publishing company (with books from people other than me!). We're still working out all of details, so I'll keep you posted!
I have a new outlet for my writings to appear, yet I'm curious if the words will be larger, since everything is bigger in Texas.
The newest publication to pick up my columns is Near Northwest Houston, which I would gather is near northwest Houston. The monthly print edition circulates in the area and is available on the website. In September's edition, there's a column I had previously written, as well as information about my book, "The Developers."
If I were tasked with the chore of educating an alien race about earth's culture, it's pretty obvious how I would start. I would create an online slide show of the 2009 Super Bowl commercials. After all, what better way is there to show a foreign species how humankind has evolved into tech-hungry, commercialized beings?
Being an author (occasionally) and having book events (rarer than occasionally), people often recommend other books or authors I should read. Usually the books pertain to what I have written about (technology) or possibly the style in which I attempt to write (sarcastic humor?).
