Why The Poor Don’t Vote

Alright, I have a ton of writing to do, but I’ve been casually thinking about this topic, so I’m going to jot down a few ideas. I don’t think it’s really a novel idea, but when I did a quick search, I was surprised to see the top search results neglecting the reason why I […]

Why I Write

You can count the number of reliable BoumanBlog readers on both my hands. The number of┬áblog subscribers I have is about equal to someone looking to cash in on Social Security. You’d think because I work in marketing, I’d care about that. But I don’t. I don’t worry about metrics here. The only thing I […]

A Startup Founder’s Job

If you’re a startup founder, you have one job. That’s to make your company grow. That’s it. The reason why I’m dedicating a blog post to this (seemingly) obvious topic is because I’ve seen (and experienced) several instances where this wasn’t the case. The founder was too focused on his/her specialty and not on making […]

Comedy Central Perfects Snapchat

  It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Snapchat. I’ve repeatedly written here, my extreme favor of the app. I think it’s brilliant and only getting better. The “Discover” feature was an underrated aspect of Snapchat for months. After they launched it, I would watch some of the channels, but I quickly lost interest. […]

I Am a Feminist

This is my follow up post to, “Am I a Feminist?” Just a few months ago, I wrote a post, essentially asking out loud if I was a feminist. At the time I had a point of contention with the word “feminist.” I wrote: My first thought when I hear this word is an eccentric […]

Snapchat Will Be More Valuable Than Instagram

I am always on my phone. My friends hate it. My family hates. I hate it. I can’t put my phone down, and the two apps I spend the most time on are Snapchat and Instagram. We live in a mobile age and whether we like it or not, we’re becoming much more attached to […]

My Journey Trading Stocks

Up until this year, I never bought a stock (not including 401k or mutual funds). But I’ve been very interested in investing money into a few particular stocks. I don’t follow the stock market religiously, or different industry trends, but I do keep my eye on specific tech stocks. I have felt for some time […]

Why Messaging Apps Will Continue to Grow

You’d think by now that we’ve hit a saturation point with messaging apps. Messaging apps have been around for years. Consumer tech is usually a zero sum game, yet more and more messaging apps have popped up over the years. But this influx of messaging apps has yet to bring much innovation. The biggest innovator […]

Thoughts on the On-Demand Service Economy Part III

This is the third and final installment in my On-Demand Service Economy series. You should read Part I and Part II before reading this post. I previously discussed how these apps play a role in my everyday life and what the economics look like for the contract workers. But the real question is how sustainable […]

Thoughts on the On-Demand Service Economy Part II

Last week I started the discussion about on-demand service economy apps. I am an avid user of these apps. I use a few of them daily and another handful weekly. I’ve tried as many apps as I can, considering not all are available in Los Angeles yet. It’s no secret I am a fan of […]
