He says Google is making you stupider. His gis.to aims to make you smarter. There are going to be people who just read the abstracts and their journey stops there. But there will be other people, like us, who often don’t know whether to invest the time into a long-form piece of content because the headline simply doesn’t give us enough information.
Gis.to isn’t intended to stop people from reading original texts; it’s supposed to guide them to the long-form writing they’ll enjoy most. The people who don’t read will continue to not read.

I have applied a keen eye for blending cultural trends, the right people and emergent industries to create dynamic new businesses in cable TV, internet and currently mobile media and marketing services for local and national companies.
I was an associate publisher for three startup magazines in New York. I helped brand and position these magazines in the marketplace through promotions at trade shows, advertising and special events
