Why I love Twitter and barely tolerate Facebook


For the past decade, I’ve tried every new social media product to come along but I find myself returning to the two giants of the industry…


Does the dressing room have a lock on a real door?

That’s what she asked me, and I didn’t think anything of it at first.

I’d been telling someone who happens to be a woman in the bike industry about my years-long pledge to write the ultimate epic “Bike Shops 2.0” essay, about how badly the bike industry needs to change from top to bottom to have a future in the US…

Romantic Comedy love scene in 2015


…as their bodies became one, they simultaneously raised their left wrists and said “hey Siri, new message to my beloved”

With Apple’s Watch event to take place tomorrow at 10AM, I figured I should put down some terrible predictions I hope come true.


Unfortunate drawback of the new short Medium posts feature: my phone is blowing up, and I previously had notifications on because Medium publishing was a rare act of friends exposing their latest work, words worth…


Call it Extra Small

This new short Medium feature is going to kill my desire to publish on my tilde.club/~mathowie blog, which was the perfect respository for anything >140char that wasn’t an epic essay worth sharing.
