How My Blog Got So Big

Given that I started my blog on August 6th, 2013, it would be reasonable to wonder how the hell it has nearly 1,000 posts and a few pages.  The answer isn’t that complicated, and it doesn’t require that I have written almost 1 blog post per day.  I mean……..I could do that, since I speed read and […]

Goodbye to G+

Saying Good-bye to Google+

  I’ve dragged my feet about writing this, as I simply haven’t wanted to admit that G+ is truly about to disappear from the Web.  Sure, somebody is looking to archive all the public posts, but that’s not the same thing as being able to participate in it anymore.  Not that I’ve done much on […]

It’s the End of the World as We Knew It

When I started the first draft of this post, early in the morning of October 16th, 2018, the R.E.M. song, “It’s the End of the World as We Know It,” seemed perfectly appropriate.  Except for the part about, “I feel fine.”  Because I definitely didn’t feel fine about the world, as I have known it, […]

Evolution and Science vs Creationism #evolution #science

Book Review “Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation”

As a science fan and former Christian (now I would describe myself as an agnostic atheist with strong Zen leanings), I am always puzzled by Creationism, that part of Christianity that believes that God created the earth either 6,000 or 10,000 years ago, and that the story of Noah and the Flood is real history, […]

Know When to Fold ‘Em

Oh my oh my, it has been an interesting few months, to say the least, which is why I haven’t posted anything since my ode to Robin Williams after his death back in August 2014.  “Interesting” probably isn’t really the best word….“insane” is probably a little closer to reality.  To catch up a little on what happened, […]

The Law of Unintended Consequences (and Opportunities?)

Ever have a time in your life when you realized that you are feeling a little overwhelmed, and that you’ve committed yourself to too many things, and that the best course of action is to re-evaluate and maybe step back from some things?  Delegate more?  Outsource more?  Delay some projects for a while?  Maybe just […]

Book Review: Google Semantic Search by David Amerland

To begin my review, I’d like to quote a paragraph from near the end of the book as an inverse of Stephen Covey, you might say, “End with the Beginning in Mind.”  🙂 The busy businessman on the go talking to his [POS] Android phone and asking for best restaurant locations is hardly aware that […]
