OUR PERSPECTIVE.

Reading a blog shouldn’t be work. Typical blogs are padded unnecessarily. Many posts are just fluff. They are designed to keep you and search engines coming back.

Our goal is the opposite. To educate and empower you. We consume and distill so you don’t have to. Our posts reflect our point of view and will be updated as necessary. No need for you to sort through all the cruft.
