The “Woo” Strikes

The “Woo” Strikes

We don’t always share analysis on back end issues but we couldn’t resist this one.  The postmortem read like an April Fools Day joke.

Waful Gets Punk’d: Irony Gets the Last Laugh

If you follow me on social media you may be aware of my love affair with coffee and bagels. It’s part of my daily ritual and I am often tweeting whilst imbibing said caffeine and starch. For a Jew living in Brooklyn, it’s not such an odd concept.  But finding bagels or quality coffee on the road is not as easy.  In the South for example, they look at you funny if you ask for …
