Selected Pearls of Wisdom that are not just for kids from JB Hofman’s blog post about an iPhone she got for her teenager: – Do not use this technology to lie, fool, or deceive another human being.

TGIF and for Naomi (not in that order!)

Author: , April 27th, 2012

I love my wife and I am SO glad it is Friday. Heading to the doctor for a check-up. I am sure he will want to take blood to check my diabetes. ICK. Looking forward to getting a massage later from Gary of Hillsborough Massage, then off to Elements for our weekly repast. My grandfather […]

The Fast Lane

Author: , December 11th, 2011

Things sure have been busy! Multiple client projects in parallel always seem to make time go faster. Now that two different websites have been launched, things should calm down a tad. The concept of having weekends off for a while is very attractive. I realized recently that the consulting business has been a crazy ride […]

Author: , October 5th, 2011

I am deeply saddened by the loss of this great man. Words that can describe my true depth of feeling elude me at this time. Image used without permission, and was taken from the Apple.com home page. I doubt Steve would mind much…

“It is business, not personal”. How many times have you heard that? IMHO, everything is personal.

Personally, as of today, I have lost more than 20 pounds as part of an ongoing effort to get […]

A Moment of Great Joy

Author: , January 28th, 2011

A while back I was looking around my office and I noticed two oil paintings I had done when I was in junior high school. The thought occurred to me that I had never properly thanked my art teacher for all of the extra effort he made on my behalf during those troubled times. So, […]

Rock On

Author: , January 25th, 2011

Worked like a madman yesterday to be ready for launch at midnight. At 10pm, the launch was scrubbed and reset back 24 hours. Whew! This is a wild project. Hopefully we can get everything under control today and launch tonight. That would ease the pressure on everyone considerably. Crashed by 10:30, and been up since […]

Tower of Babel

Author: , September 22nd, 2010

What power words have. What an awesome construct is the mind of a human that can allow thoughts to take shape and be shared though spoken and written language. How terrible when we cease to listen to those around us, to not hear the message, to ignore the words of those we have come to […]

Long, Crazy Day, But Worth It

Author: , July 14th, 2010

Finally winding down for the night. Got the server rebuilt, for the most part. Go the agenda done for the 9am meeting. So much happened today. Suffice it to say that I have found a place to be a real member of the team, to contribute meaningfully, and be accepted for what I am. That […]
