Adaptive Path: "Every Web team has its own take on dividing up roles and responsibilities and implementing processes for design and development. Formal titles, job descriptions, and reporting structures can vary widely.

I just posted a story about the EU’s pretense at collecting VAT from foreign sites that sell digital goods and services, which somehow led me to the dissident frogman, to file along with Merde in France. I’d rejoice if this wasn’t a lost cause. Or rather I should say I decided I had better things [...]
Good idea from Dave Winer. That would be even more interesting to us if we could use it to synch a bunch of subscriptions among several users.
Our new site about internet marketing is live. We rushed through the last couple of days to get it done (thanks to John and Rick for pulling extra hours and making it happen) but we still have some kinks to fix (e.g. the whole newsletter subscription process needs to be streamlined, and the Adventive integration [...]
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
