Change approaching on the horizon. Ahoy!

Jun 30, 2009 in Philosophy

Funny how the next generation always finds ways to upset the apple cart for the one previous. Every new move of God is met with resistance. The introduction of new technology and methods disrupts the security of longtime employees. A new baby threatens its siblings’ desires for their parents’ attention.

In my early twenties I took restaurant and retail jobs to subsidize my new dream of becoming a rock musician.

Tablets of silicon

Dec 31, 2005 in Productivity, Strategy, Technology

Until October I was either chained to my desktop or buried under the weight of my 10lb. desktop replacement. In my new, “Tablet of Silicon”, I’ve found my centre—in terms of measured productivity, and not mere philosophical speculation.
