Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. –Proverbs 13:20 Man, I am really bad at this blogging thing. I go on hyperactive writing sprees where my sole motivation is coffee and the self-delusional assurance that I’m accomplishing something. Somehow. I’m not sure what. But that’s where the coffee comes […]

The Purpose of Social Media

November 24, 2012


Why do I bother? During the election, I let myself go on Facebook.  I posted a lot and stirred the pot as much as I could.  It’s possible that I’ve pissed off more than a few people in the process.  I want to apologize to those people: it was not my intent to offend or […]

This is why I write…

September 27, 2012

January 11, 2012


I’m transitioning into a new job, and for the past week, I’ve had time to surf the web and write.  This is why I’ve been able to post five or six new pages between three blogs.  At the same time, though, I’ve been building up a lot of thoughts about all kinds of topics, so […]

Kickstarter Hate

November 8, 2011


I’ve been researching about crowd funding in order to prepare the Zombie Roller Derby project for a public market.  The premise is simple: submit your proposal for public review, promote it as much as possible, and if it’s a good idea, people will give you money to make it happen.  The reality is far more complicated.
