Sometimes in great storylines the protagonist must die. Such was the fate of #IFIE. After over seven years, with ebb and flow passion towards it in the past and waning interest in it in the present, I had to “kill my baby”. Or maybe it’s better to say, let it go out into the world [...]

Well folks, April is around the corner and that means the annual migration of “broadercasters*” to Las Vegas for the NAB Show. Since 2009, I have been attending NAB and as I’ve mentioned over and over again, I think I will always try to find a way to go. In 2012, I threw the first [...]

Last month The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire reached out to us and offered their facilities to us for our November meetup. I toured the space and it is awesome. I had no [...]
