What the Fax?

Every nation has its quirks, and it could be argued that the U.S. has more than its fair share, but what stands out the most to me – as a tech journalist who recently made the move across the pond – is that in many ways, the nation of Silicon Valley is still stuck in the 90s. Take cheques (or checks as you Yankees would call them) for example. In England it had been years since I’d last seen one of those things, much less written one. Up until five years ago our in-laws might have used them to g...

10 things that will trigger a tax audit

It's official. House Democrats have formally requested copies of the last six years of Donald J. Trump's personal and business federal tax returns. Trump has steadfastly refused to make public his taxes, breaking a modern-day tradition set by presidential candidates — and in-office presidents (and vice presidents) — of letting the public have a glimpse of White House 1040s. The main reason Trump has given for keeping his taxes private is that his personal and business filings are under audit. ...

Lesson #311: It’s Time to Rethink the Pyramid Shaped Org Chart

I have long thought movie stars and sports heroes were drastically overpaid in comparison to their contributions to society.  For example, teachers are teaching future generations of kids, and get paid pennies in comparison.  And, even well paid doctors saving lives, are paid a small fraction of what a basketball star gets paid to simply play the game of basketball.  In the last decade, these inequalities are starting to be seen in corporate workplace, as well, with rising CEO pay and a mid-lev...
