A man of few words, with an average number of fingers.
In all seriousness, Ryan is the kind of guy you want on your team. The dude has your back, no matter what.

Great article, and now all I can think about is how hard I laughed at Stephen Colbert's take on repackaging/curation as a business model. Behold: http://www.colbertnation.com/ColbuffingtonRe-post
On a show recently, he called out huffpo for having based an entire section of their site on repackaged excepts from Colbert's show. I get the sense he's not actually complaining (believe the rule is he is ALWAYS being sarcastic), and syndication is generally a good thing... but we must not forget to actually create original work sometimes.

I think the number one reason I fail to blog (I've had a blog in the past, its not up any more) is because it just takes too damn long. In fact writing anything coherent and useful can be a real challenge, especially without ruthless daily practice. When I do write, I absolutely obsess over every word. I make multiple passes to ensure I haven't included too many filler words, and to re-arrange and re-assembe my ideas. Chunk of a sentence, a half a paragraph: copy-paste, rinse, repeat.
I also find that when I'm truly inspired or otherwise motivated by a topic, eloquence sort of comes naturally. This is a big part of successful writing - giving a damn!
