Why Google+ Wins

I have had a lot of discussions with people on if Google Plus will succeed as a social media platform. The most recent change in the Google+ interface has sparked this conversation in the office again. I don’t think Google+’s success is an "if," it’s a "when." When did you know? With the biggest launch…

Inorganic Food

One of the many things that annoy me is the use of the word organic. Organic chicken, organic beef, organic vegetables, organic fruit, what’s the distinction? I wrote a blog post about organic food to help you understand what “organic” might mean. At the Rock Show We were at the OMSI and there was a…

At the Rock Show

Recently my family was visiting OMSI and we saw that there was a small convention going on in one of the exhibit halls. It was the Rock & Agate Show being put on by OAMS. They had all the cool stuff you would expect at a rock and mineral show like how to grind rock…

My Father’s Thanksgiving Story

I recently received a letter from my dad. He does that from time to time, kinda neat really. This time he included a story about his Thanksgivings as a child. He’s a private person so don’t tell him it’s posted here. Here’s what he wrote: The Holidays With My Mother’s Family Thanksgiving and Christmas at…

Facebook Sponsored Stories

The title is a little misleading. Facebook will not pay you for your stories as a Facebook user. But people will pay them for your posts and I think advertizing has changed yet again. Paying for what, exactly? I’ll start with the core of the idea: word of mouth. Let’s say you go on vacation…

The Divorce Rate Is 27%

Divorce rates in the US have hit 50%. I hear this all the time from every source that has something to say on the subject of divorce. This is wrong and I would like to set the record straight. Everybody’s wrong? Sure, jump to the extreme, but yes, that is what I am saying. I’ve…
