I’m not certain how Stewart Miller is connected to Macaulay but he may be a financial advisor or a lawyer or something along those lines. BunnyEars.com is now live and the podcast is available on iTunes.

CafeMartha.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC client from its past owners. Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. does use CSC, so they are a potential buyer.
