He has written for Laughing Squid, The Next Web and Read Write Web. He is the author (although mostly in name only) of nine patents with variations of the name “Aggregation of an Aggregation System.” What I’m trying to say is that I just hope you are not reading this through an aggregation system, and then aggregating it.
