Who will Cegavske represent?
Oct. 22, 2014

Memorial walls for exposed employees

Biting off the downtown apple
Oct. 19, 2014
Tony Hsieh. The revolutionary who was supposed to change downtown. The man who made me believe he could change the tech scene in Las Vegas. He promised changes that would revitalize a long-forgotten area of Las Vegas. I was ready to get a big T.H. tattoo on myself to show my unwavering support of Mr. Hsieh.
