How To Confuse People And Enjoy It


“I just want to know how to put you into a neat little box.” She said this as she mimed the sides of a cube in the air with her hands. She was getting a little frustrated that I didn’t have a concise answer to the question I get asked almost daily. “What is it that you do again?” Quite … Read More

30 Days At The Norblad


It’s hot. The black rubber roof is transmitting both visible heat waves and a subtle asphalt smell into my room via the only two windows I have. Ah, the room.

Audio Interference


The incredible expansion of experimentation that’s happening around the distribution of words as content is mind-blowing.

A Truly Informed People


How can people truly make right and honest choices from conviction unless they are also properly informed? This cannot happen until the sources of information and trust step into the responsible role of leadership with the sole intent of informing the people for the sake of making decisions that better their lives and allow for their most honest expression of … Read More

The Number One Cause of Digital Failure


There’s a reason this quote exists on the front page of this site. “Let’s face it. Human error is the number one cause of digital failure these days. Well, according to my experience anyway.” The reason is simple – you and I are not a part of perfect technology. And our failures are never the cause of anything other than … Read More
