Yeah, So I’m Terrible at This

I'm going to give it one more try. As I write this I have a bunch of half-finished posts but none have made it to the blog. I simply need to find five minutes a day to write something up.

Blog anniversary

Well, it turns out I did remember. Happy 12th birthday, blog.

The Blog’s Anniversary

I always forget, so I'm writing it now. It launched December 10th, 2002. In 29 days, it will be a dozen years old. Yippee.

As part of the acquisition, Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre will join Apple. Apple is acquiring […]


Working from Home

Working from Home: The main problem you’ll encounter when working from home is… well, you. We need constraints in order to reinforce productive behaviour. The idea of a work ethic goes out the window for most people when no-one is looking over your shoulder. Some people can just work diligently, regardless of whether anyone is […]

In the next month or two, Dave Wedzik and I plan to begin selling our book, Lowest Score Wins, via the website We'll have two products (a paperback and a hardcover), so we want a little store that integrates with PayPal (preferably) to handle sales with shipping to the U.S., Canada, and other countries […]

This Blog is Eleven…

Though I have a reminder set to go off every December 10th, I often hit "close" and then forget about it. My blog turned 11 on December 10, 2013. Yeesh. It's less than one month younger than my daughter.
