The Origins of the Name Roth Stock

My memorial to Old School days! A lot of people don’t know the origin of the name Roth Stock for my company.

Finally decided it was time to simply create a photo album on each with the following. To me, this is clearly a rights grab by an over-zealous corporate entity. In September 2013, Facebook revealed in a white paper that … Continue reading Editorial: Why So Few Photos on Social Media?
