I had been toying with this idea for some time, although I wasn't really sure that the world needs yet another typical payments portal, like PYMNTS.com, MEDICI.com, PaymentSource.com, Finextra.com, Financial IT, etc.
They are all excellent sources of payments industry news, industry buzz and thought leadership articles. I have personally contributed articles that were published on many of them.
Why PAYDEOLOGY then? Well, I have been directly asked by couple of my LinkedIn connections, why don't I, instead of continuing to publish views and ideas elsewhere (including my own LinkedIn profile), launch separate basic blog portal and start publish there?
Ok, I do not aspire to be the next Brett King, Chris Skinner, Jim Marous or Dave Birch, simply because I do not consider myself being a futurist, although my team at TD Bank and I do hatch and build cool, often futuristic payments prototypes.
I do however enjoy writing down my thoughts (when inspired by something I read, experienced or saw) about anything digital payments related and am not shy to publish them.
