The real price of free soda to your company

While Chris Morley’s comment wasn’t meant to be advice on how to be an iconoclast, it is. Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking.

Sometime when I’m feeling nostalgic for the “good old days” of the Web I call fax machines to listen to that harmonic screeching. It reminds me of my old dial up modems. Why did they ever make those things so loud? What was the point. I bet if they made dial up modems with ring back technology (that’s the music you get when you call some 20 somethings cell phone...
