Welcome

This is my personal & professional blog.  It's a place for me to think out loud and learn. I'll sometimes talk about things I don't understand as a way to begin to understand them. I'll often be wrong, short sighted, and unclear. When you see this happening, please point it out!

Etsy is Awesome (Jeff Bezos, are you reading this?)

Etsy is a great product!  And they've the potential to grow the market they've pioneered for hand made goods into a disgustingly large business.  And then sell to Amazon!  And, since Jeff Bezos recently decided to make Amazon a retailing conglomerate, continue to operate as a largely independent business.

I love the story of how Rob Kalin started Etsy--he made furniture and wanted a place online to sell it.

Etsy's "Shop by Color" is a great feature: http://www.etsy.com/color.php?ref=fp_nav_colors.  It makes browsing on Etsy (which already feels wholesome and like it's for the good of Mother Earth) fun and serendipitous.

Some part of me wants to pinch Rob Kalin's cheeks!
