No More Subscriptions!

Call me crazy but I decided my one new years resolution would be no more subscriptions to services or magazines.

Not a week goes by without someone asking me to "Join" of "Beta" the next better, faster, sleeker service. None ever seem to integrate. The mantra seems to be "upgrade" – read: "leave your existing service, come to mine". So, no more subscriptions for a year…

Which means, not subscribing to Google’s new hosted domain service. Interesting idea but I am not sure what value it really adds over the already pretty sleek offering from Network Solutions.

Subscription creep = complexity.

    Subscription creep. I like that. A couple of weeks ago, I took a little time to create a few Outlook folders to route my e-subs to. I didn’t realize how many I had coming into my inbox on a weekly basis. I read a few, but many I just dele. I have definitely fallen prey to subscription creep.

    BTW, the Sophia pics are awesome. Good for you. Enjoy!

    Andy, weren’t we talking about this at DEMO? You make a great resolution as we are all “over-subscribed”. Subcriptions to magazines, internet access, wireless services, data services, cable, electricity, e-zines, yada, yada, yada….
