    Walking across the Summer Street bridge that spans Fort Point Channel this morning I noticed sunlight glaring off the water and thought to myself, hmmm…That’s strange. The sun is on the other side of all those buildings in front of me…Now just rising above the horizon over the Atlantic. Then I realized the glare I…

  • I am a CMS

    September 20, 2013 Jake DiMare

    File under: Just what the hell is it I do for a living? I had this interaction last week and it sparked one of those ‘how did I get here’ moments. Last week I was standing in front of the counter at my favorite deli waiting for my sandwich when the girl behind the register…

    September 18, 2013 Jake DiMare

    June 20, 2013 Jake DiMare

    It’s been a little over a day since I picked up my Google Glass at Google’s Chelsea Market offices in Lower Manhattan and yeah, I’m impressed. There’s more to say than I have time to share so I’m going to stick to the high level stuff. Besides, more than enough people have and will continue…

  • Can you smell it too?

    May 14, 2013 Jake DiMare

    Recently I shared this chart, courtesy of Mother Jones, on my Facebook page and was quickly challenged by a connection to explain what I thought it had to do with the current conversation about Benghazi. Here’s what I had to say: Well Paul, since you asked…What this data provides me with is confirmation of what,…

  • Happy Mother's Day

    May 12, 2013 Jake DiMare

    Anywhere I’ve experienced success in my life can be directly attributed to the lessons my mother taught me: Show up no matter what. Do your best. Work hard. Don’t take no for an answer. Don’t make excuses. For those that never knew her…All I can say is I haven’t the words to describe the courage…

  • Don't go changing…

    April 16, 2013 Jake DiMare

    Let me tell you something Bostonians: DON’T fucking change a thing about your life today. Do not let the bad guys win. Go about your lives secure in the knowledge that even if there was a September 11th scale event every single month, in this country, the most dangerous part of your day would still…

  • #OMG…Google #ifihadglass !

    March 29, 2013 Jake DiMare

    So excited…I was notified this evening that I’ve been selected for the Google Glass explorer program. This is some serious Willy Wonka golden ticket action for me. It feels like I won the lottery. The #ifihadaglass contest was to share in a tweet or on Google+ what I, as an individual, would do with my…

  • Eviscerating the Rubes

    February 14, 2013 Jake DiMare

    For me, the most interesting aspect  of Marco Rubio’s ill-fated rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union Address this week wasn’t the Senator’s palpable, obvious difficulty with nerve. As entertaining as the stuttering, stammering, and dry-mouth was to behold,  it is the ongoing reaction of my Conservative friends and associates that I’m enjoying most.…
