Sweet jesus what a Shyamalan twist. Did you seriously end a Duran Duran post with blockchain?


Looks a lot like using scandal to sell product. #BusinessAsUsual #EverybodyDoingIt


What’s wrong with someone using their own professional history to explain what motivated them to start their company?

Not all copyright is bad. Corey’s creative commons-licensed novels rely upon copyright protection very heavily.


Gangsterism in the music industry? I’m SHOCKED.
