California’s Tax Problem

Ed. Note : Some argue for the abolition of the taxes all together or a flat tax, but really we can’t expect a tax based on "presences" to be appropriately levied. Will the job situation be fixed in 18 months? If it is, expect unions and "innovation" to take a back seat- the problems that were left for this administration make me hope that we do not enter yet another lost decade.

The result of this bill is that any out-of-state retailer will *not* have to collect sales tax if they sever business relationships with a large swath of contractors, service providers, ad networks and affiliates that have a presence in California.

If you are a company that in any way makes a commission or markets on behalf of another company as your monetization, you are in danger.

If you are a contractor, web host of some kind or other service provider that is even peripherally facilitating the sale of a product in any fashion, you are in danger of out-of-state retailers canceling their contracts. This could include web design, web hosting (including out-of-state hosts with a server in California), coding, mobile apps, you name it.

The Anatomy of a Notification

Notifications are the smallest bit of disposable, human-readable information that conveys something you care about. Their real-time nature gives notifications an immediate sense of importance. Well, my ass is vibrating, so it must be important.

If you want to rip on notifications, you can angrily wave your finger at the folks who believe discovering a thing has anything to do with understanding it. Notifications reinforce our addiction to the now. That vibrating ass of yours gives you the false impression that you know something, but all you really know is that something is different. The value of information does not decay as fast as the immediacy of the notification would have you believe.

Publishing The Unpublishable

Image source

What constitutes an unpublishable work? It could be many things: too long, too experimental, too dull; too exciting; it could be a work of juvenilia or a style you’ve long since discarded; it could be a work that falls far outside the range of what you’re best known for; it could be a guilty pleasure or it could simply be that the world judges it to be awful, but you think is quite good. We’ve all got a folder full of things that would otherwise never see the light of day.

Invited authors were invited to ponder to that question. The works found here are their responses, ranging from an 1018-page manuscript (unpublishable due to its length) to a volume of romantic high school poems written by a now-respected innovative poet. You get the idea.

The web is a perfect place to test the limits of unpublishability. With no printing, design or distribution costs, we are free to explore that which would never have been feasible, economically and aesthetically. While this exercise began as an exploration and provocation, the resultant texts are unusually rich; what we once considered to be our trash may, after all, turn out to be our greatest treasure.

Lifestyle Business Fail

Image source

Countless people have begun businesses blogs, only to drop it all 6 months later because they aren’t sure why they aren’t making money.

I’m going to tell you right now that for 95% of the people out there that are trying to start a lifestyle business, you’re doing it all wrong.

Who is Joi Ito?

Born in Kyoto in 1966, the internationally educated Ito dropped out of two different colleges and, as early as 1985, became one of the first people to register for and study an online course. This knack for early adoption served him well in later years, and he’s now credited with a hodgepodge variety of ‘firsts’, even having helped kickstart the nascent rave scene in Japan.
