Cities across North America are shamelessly thirsty for Amazon HQ2

Mr. Jeff Besos has caused a straight-up frenzy on the internet by allowing cities in North America bid to be the next location for Amazon’s second headquarters. The bidding ended yesterday and let me tell you that most of these cities went above and beyond to get Besos’ attention. While each city surely put a great deal of time and consideration into their bids, there were definitely some attention-seeking antics that made my skin crawl.

Elections, domain names, and you. Yes, you.

In 2012 when Obama was reelected, two of my Republican friends set out to start a website. They wanted to build something big and shiny and fancy that would percolate and disseminate big ideas to dispirited friends of the GOP. But they never finished it. Their plans were so big and so awesome and soon their busy lives swept them away to other things.

So now here we are on the other side of another election. For some it’s an election that may find you wanting to speak louder than being curled into the fetal position will allow you.

But it doesn’t have to be difficult.
