When does everyone predict the first round of layoffs to happen? Many among us are not ready to embrace the change and become disrupters as we continue define the Ed-Tech space. If we are to continue improving students’ lives then we must embrace... — read more
A recruiter reached out to me about a tech manager job at Cengage. I don't know anyone who works there but based on the Glassdoor reviews it seems like a great place. 4+ star rating, CEO winning awards, good benefits, and so on. As I did more... — read more

With an update on ‘how we are doing against our very severe scenario and cash in the bank target’. This should be interesting!
Isn’t it time we come together and share, to honor our differences and reflect upon our sameness? Isn’t it time we gather together as one in our RAV4’s and our soiled personalized hello kitty masks and hold a vigil in honor of our obnoxiousness? ... — read more
