• What a year in Los Angeles has taught me…

    July 25, 2015 Jake DiMare

    Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day my wife and I arrived in Los Angeles to start our new lives as Californians. As seems to be the custom, in a city as transitory in the lives of many of her millions of residents, I believe this officially makes us ‘old-timers’. As such, I thought I would take…

  • Ready to lead?

    May 9, 2014 Jake DiMare

    I just finished Alan Price’s ‘Ready to lead?’ on a flight down to Philly and I recommend it. Very quick and easy to read, it follows the journey of a management consultant experiencing growing pains in his career while making making the leap from manager to leader. Perhaps it’s just the timing for me, but…

  • Are your readers pests?

    September 18, 2013 Jake DiMare

    A while back I discovered a or law blog with some content I found interesting so I subscribed. After reading a couple of posts I commented on one and then an interesting thing happened…The author, a criminal defense attorney, introduced me to a strategy for handling commenters on his site I’ve yet to encounter.  It…

    April 16, 2011 Jake DiMare

    There’s been a slight dust-up over the inclusion of General Stanley McChrystal in TED, witnessed in some of the comments on his video at TED.com. At war abroad, General McChrystal was in the unenviable position of being forced to make daily life or death decisions which the rest of us will never have to consider…

    March 18, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The weather here in Boston is starting to warm up and the sun’s been out for a few days. I pulled the motorcycle out of storage last night and the first ride felt, well…Great. Adding to my good mood, my cat seems as though he might pull through. The last few days he has not…

  • I can smell the fear in you…

    March 5, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The ability to smell fear has now been proven via scientific process. Of course, I am not sure anyone ever doubted the possibility. I’ve known since I was a boy fear causes an incredibly salient physiological experience which can easily be sensed in others in a variety of ways. This is mostly because I has…

    February 23, 2010 Jake DiMare

    These last couple of days have been ridiculously busy but I want to keep blogging every weekday. I’m developing a Flash screen takeover for one of my clients. They are using it to advertise the unveiling of their new site…so it’s not going to be some annoying ad for a hybrid car or anything. It…

  • Trip on this…

    February 19, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I fell asleep the other night mulling something about the universe over in my mind and I need more input. Perhaps by sharing some reader will either be an astrophysicist or know one who can explain. I already tried asking Neil deGrasse Tyson on Facebook (no kidding) but he’s yet to get back to me. Everything…

  • Oh what a feeling…

    February 9, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Quick poll…does anybody else think the news coverage on Toyota is a little over the top? I mean…who cares? I own a Toyota and I have to say I’m not really concerned for my life. It’s also not the first vehicle I have received a recall letter on. In fact, I have received a recall…
