Musings on YouTube, SEO and Social Media

The exploitation of children by social media sites is ridiculous and unnecessary

This article will likely be shorter than I could really elaborate on but I wanted to make a note of something. I am a fan of the YouTube Channel Nexpo which recently made the following video about a “children’s chat” site that allows adults to interact with children, seemingly to solicit them.       The responses the site admins gave about how they cannot secure the site is rather ridiculous. Look I have been using the internet since I


Why I Hate Almost Everything Disney Star Wars Except The Mandalorian

Last year in May I wrote a blog titled, “Why Disney’s Star Wars Strategy Isn’t Going to Work and What They Should Do”. It was a followup to my post, “Why I Think Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a Bad Movie“. It’s been over a year, and now the most recent Disney SW film, The Rise of Skywalker, has been released to reviews even more critical the TLJ was. And right off the bat, let’s be clear here that


An Introduction to Dynamic Television Broadcasting System Used by Zenither

Intro: With our Zenither TV Anywhere platform we have built “cable TV without the cable“. We believe our technology can allow us to be the #1 TV carrier in the world. This is a boastful statement but it is one based upon the strength of the technology which we have imagined and engineered. It’s not a hypothetical; right now we are doing TV broadcasting in a way that nobody else is doing it and which we believe is the future


How I Promoted My Self-Published Book to the Top of an Amazon Bestseller List

In the past I have written about how many authors are getting bad information on how to promote a self-published book. One of my core strengths as an entrepreneur is my marketing ability. It’s taken a lot of time, but by suffering through a lot of mistakes I’ve managed to find a process that works for me. I had built the Power Up TV network using certain techniques, and I’ve also applied these techniques to the books I have written,


The Entrepreneurial Life Requires Sacrifice

Six years ago ( 2012 ) I bought new shoes. This was to replace the pair of shoes pictured above, which I had purchased when I got out of the Army in 2005. So I wore these shoes for seven years. I took a photo of these shoes before I threw them away because I wanted to remember that. I’m starting this blog post by mentioning this because I think it illustrates how little money I had in my young

Reddit’s Ask Historians is a Perfect Example of the Flaws of User-Generated Content

A week ago I published an article discussing how programmatic advertising enables user-generated content platforms to earn revenue and how it’s making the world a darker place. It’s not an opinion I am alone in; former high ranking reddit employee, Dan McComas, has also written an article titled “I Fundamentally Believe That My Time at Reddit Made the World a Worse Place“. This post is going to illuminate another way in which user-generated content platforms like reddit make our world a


Programmatic Advertising on User-Generated Content is a Fundamentally Flawed Business Model That Makes The World Darker

YouTube, Facebook and other platforms whose core business model is to serve programmatic ads on user-generated content are making the world a darker place to live. There has been a lot of news headlines about a lot of scandals involving YouTube, Facebook and other platforms whose core business model is to serve programmatic ads on user-generated content. I find the entire situation greatly redeeming considering even back in 2013 I was talking about the problems with this business model. It’s

2018 Digital Nomad Go Bag and Carry on Travel Luggage Kit List

It’s strange for me to realize something. I’ve been operating as a digital nomad for the past few years while building up Martell Broadcasting Systems yet I’ve never done any specific blogs about the subject. I think I’ve learned a lot of important lessons along the way and so I want to share some of this hard-won knowledge with others. I’ve had to do a lot of long road trips, and I’ve also found myself stuck overnight at an airport
