Roberts, co-founderChip Mosher, VP Communications & MarketingMatt Kolowski, Customer Service ManagerSHOWNOTESIf you haven’t seen Road House, go watch it (Netflix/iTunes/Amazon), and learn the "three simple rules: One, never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected. Two, take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it’s absolutely necessary. And three, be nice."ComiXology has a website, an iOS app, and an Android app.All four guests are on twitter: David Steinberger does a lot of the talking like a literal boss, John D. Roberts was made sad by insults about his widget, Chip Mosher is the man with all the stats, and poor ol’ Matt Kolowski is still having nightmares.Marvel 700 worked well after some constructive, soul-crushing learning.ComiXology issued a voluntary password reset for all customers recently due to a "non-critical" breach.ComiXology has to balance customer relations with partner relationships, allowing the right partner to respond to the issues they own, regardless of how frustrating something might be. In this respect, they’ve managed to walk a fine line like Balanchine dancers.Seriously, pain don’t hurt.
