Need me to speak? There are ways

So you want me to speak at your event. That’s great. I love flying around, sitting in airports/hotels, and then sitting on stage for 45 minutes, and then flying away. Honestly. I have an agent who sells me but I also speak for free sometimes. I will do yours for free if:

TokenReporter is a way to understand the new ICO economy

I’ve been working on a new project called TokenReporter and I think you’ll get a kick out of it. It’s basically a bi-weekly newsletter that focuses on token sales AKA ICOs and it explores the intersection of modern startups with cryptocurrency. I’m charging a little bit to support the writers I’ve hired but it’s a pretty cool little newsletter.

We’ve already got 5,000 subscribers and growing so check it out and sign up here.

In Memoriam: Robert Lee Biggs, Age 79

My dad, Robert Lee Biggs, died on January 2 after a year-long battle with lung cancer. He was 79. I spent his last hours with him reading to him from his favorite books. He had a Master’s Degree in English from OSU and he was a life-long reader. I’ve often written about how he bought us boxes and boxes of discarded library books of all types and simply put them on our playroom shelves. Over the years, from my early reader days until today, I was able to drink from that deep well and still hope I will be able to put it to good use. This is us on the front page of a section of the Columbus Dispatch in about 1979 when they profiled my mother’s Polish rooots and all the good things she made for us to eat. That’s me at the bottom.

My panel on smart cities with four amazing thinkers on the future of urbanity

This is a panel I ran at Smart City Expo with some amazing folks. My favorite is the 16-year-old who is making smart car chargers.


Last week a 14-year-old boy brought a tech project to school setting off a wave of controversy. He is a Maker and he wanted to show his teacher a fun thing he put together. The resulting reaction was typical of today’s Internet praise and outrage cycle. On one side the Maker community has banded together to show the boy that his desire to build was important. On the other side, some believe everything about this story is a dangerous farce. After all, they say, Ahmed didn’t really build the clock. It wasn’t real – it was just a repurposed Radio Shack clock from the 1980s. The boy’s father is an Islamic firebrand! This is a carefully orchestrated sham so Ahmed can get a Surface and so kids can bring real bombs to school and teachers will think twice!
