After spending five years (from 2005 to 2010) updating Somewhat Frank day and night covering the tech beat, web 2.0 and social media booms I decided in 2010 it was time to redirect all my editorial and writing energy to grow Tech.Co (previously called Tech Cocktail) into a full-fledge media company. This move coincided with deciding to dive off the entrepreneurial diving board and quit my day job building social networking and personalization products for millions at Aol to go all in on my own ventures - life is too short not to. I wrote a book called Startup Mixology and shared some of my learning from the adventure. After growing TechCo to millions of readers globally my TechCo journey came to an end in 2018 as TechCo was acquired by MVF Global.
Ok so back to Somewhat Frank, this site was a top Web 2.0 blog along with the likes of TechCrunch, Read Write Web, Mashable and more. Somewhat Frank was even referenced in Gary Vaynerchuk's NYTimes best selling book Crush It, on page 86 - and in Gary's rap video. I am proud of what Somewhat Frank was able to accomplish rolling solo back then with over 160,000 RSS and email subscribers. Now I'm back with a new format, an audio podcast. So I hope you enjoy it.
