Titicaca

The weekend before last, two buddies and I decided to venture out and explore the islands of Lake Titicaca in Peru. Perhaps faintly familiar to you for its lewd sounding name, the highest navigable lake in the world has much more to offer than a few giggles. At 12,500 feet above sea level, the lake [...]

Israel Travel Advice

This summer Family Litvack is taking a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. We’re traveling to Israel for a week in mid-June. I’m excited. I haven’t been to Israel since 2006 and we’ve never been there together as a family. Since I first went to Israel on my Birthright trip I’ve sought to develop a more [...]

One of the most interesting business opportunities on the L-Hoops radar is the ability for small businesses to leverage digital to locally market to their customers.

Get Off The Digital Grid

I was fortunate to be able to get some time off over the holidays and checked out Costa Rica for ten days. It’s an awesome country and with some decent planning and a little luck, the vacation unfolded perfectly. The beaches, waterfalls, weather and Imperial beer were all pura vida. But one of the things [...]

Help Plan My Costa Rica Trip

I’m planning a trip with a few friends to Costa Rica over Christmas break. So far we haven’t done much planning. Besides booking a flight, everything else is pretty much yet to be determined. This lack of a precise itinerary is partially by design. For those of you who have followed some of my travel [...]

Michigan Football: Oh Vey!

I was planning on writing a preview/projection type blog post on the 2009 Michigan Football season. It was going to be optimistically lush and chronicle the Space Emperor’s quest for the Ray Guy Award (best college punter), Nick Sheridan’s second year poise and improved klutzability, Shoelace Robinson’s kicks and point guard turned slot receiver Kelvin [...]

Pennant Race Drive: The World’s First Fantasy Sports Twitter Game

My Web Start-Up Fundamentals

I’ve been thinking about starting a new website or digital business with some of my free time. This is something I’m always thinking about. Recently, the itch has been compounded as a few of my friends, and people in my network, have shared some of their digital ideas with me. Like in many industries these [...]

Wedding Recap & Final Thoughts (India Post)

I’ve been home for a few days now and I’m just getting back into the swing of things. Actually, I’m sure the “swing of things” will smack me in the face as soon as I step back into the office this morning. It’s nice to be back stateside. Enjoying the luxuries of our first world [...]
