It’s Time to Sow and Go!

What you sow does not come to life unless it dies first. – 1 Corinthians 15:36 Today is my last day with General Dynamics and with the United States Marine Corps. And I am overwhelmed with many emotions. But God has been immensely gracious. He has gently reminded me that the things which I have planted and nurtured won’t […]

The Valuation of Trust

  Thanks to +Edward Coles and +Merlina Sapphire for sharing this video. It is a good overview of the basics of money and financing. I used the video to launch a rousing discussion on Google+. This is fundamental Econ 101 stuff. But it is great to see it explained so simply and understandably. Nevertheless, the narrator makes a simplifying […]

The Real Cloud Computing Transformation

I recently gave the keynote address at a Kansas City symposium on cloud computing. So when I saw this article, my interest was piqued. The author believes that cloud computing is devouring itself. Um, alright. I guess I can buy the premise. But I think the author may be too absorbed with the technical layers […]

I Remember When…

…remote control was either difficult or expensive. You could choose the Microsoft approach.  You could use the RDP solution from any client.  But if you wanted to actually connect to a desktop, that system needed to be running a “professional” version of the OS.  That meant that you could have remote control from Microsoft if […]

Switchfoot @ Six Flags St. Louis

The Switchfoot concert I attended yesterday was fantastic. – Maybe it was fantastic because of the weather: I was blown away when it was raining and sunny and a rainbow spread across the park. We are so blessed by this beautiful world. May we treat this precious gift with the dignity that His generosity demands. […]

Over the past couple of days, I’d completed all the chores that needed to be done on this long weekend. So today was a free day. The weather was amazing today. But Cindy and I decided to take care of a few things: Cindy spent the day working on schoolwork while I worked on configuring […]

A Very Samsung Summer

It’s been a Samsung kind of month here at the castle. First it was the Galaxy Tab. Then we added a Samsung refrigerator. Finally, we ended up buying a second Samsung TV. Why did we need another TV?

From Uber-Geek to…Corporate Wonk?

It is always good to see when talent is rewarded. So many of us began our careers very humbly. I started my career by building my own PC. [When I started, you were forced to solder them yourself. And most folks were using CP/M (from Digital Research).] Still others gained their notoriety by being public […]

Me and My Tablet

It’s been twenty-one days since I bought my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 device. And in that time, the tab and I have been through a lot. We’ve had to replace the Zagg screen protector twice. We’ve shared a firmware upgrade (courtesy of the talented Samsung support team). We’ve even solved a DHCP problem with a […]

Bouncing Between Various Quanta of Activity

It has been an amazingly hectic week.  And today has epitomized the chaos that I’ve felt.  This week has seen a lot: We got back from vacation (which was really just a long weekend).  But we have been struggling to re-integrate into our normal routines. The man who enticed me to leave my previous job […]
