LIVEdigitally covers tech for the living room, conference room, consumer, prosumer, hipster, executive, and everything and everyone in between. Edited by Jeremy Toeman and featuring guest writers from every walk of tech, LIVEdigitally focuses on the trends and issues affecting today’s connected generation, in addition to the occasional tangent into bad (and good) TV shows.
- At no time in the past, nor at any time in the future will LIVEdigitally accept payment to write a blog post. Unless said payment is sufficient to cover the outstanding balance of Jeremy’s mortgage, in which case we will take the check (and disclose it). Please, big brands, send this check!
- Due to deep industry connections, it is safe to assume that many of the products reviewed or discussed were given to us for free. That said, at no point in the past nor future is there an exchange of “product for post”.
- At some times LIVEdigitally will write about clients of Stage Two Consulting, however this is not a part of any business relationship, it is entirely at the discretion of the individual writer. NO incentives whatsoever are associated with these blog posts. These relationships are always disclosed in the post.
- At all times we attempt to identify 100% of disclosures where any potential relationship or perceived conflict of interest would arise. Failing to do so should be considered an oversight, not deliberate, and you are welcome to leave a comment on any post if you’d like clarification.
