Thoughts on Technology, Society and Life


Blogger’s Block?

Posted by

No, not really. Like many well-intentioned bloggers, I get caught up in the demands of life. I’m not lazy, I work long hours for damn little compensation. I’ve just got too many projects going. I run from one to the next, rarely bringing anything to fruition. That needs to change.

I’m working now on a new way to organize my day. I’ll now be making a little time every day to visit each of my projects, including several blogs. I’ve had to shelve some promising ideas, even scrap some, in order to focus on what I hope will be the most productive. This is second nature for you organizers out there, but a daunting task for me.

Wish me luck. I hope we can all move closer to our dreams this year.


Time, well…, spent.

Now that I’ve become a blogger (still waiting for my certificate to arrive in the mail), I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time reading other people’s blogs (OPBs). I’m not sure if I’m researching or procrastinating, but I’ve found a number of things I’ll post here. Now, if I can figure out how pings and trackbacks work… I feel so old.

From, Technology is the root of all evil:

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog.

The man will be there to feed the dog, and the dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipments.

Yes, I’m a technogeek of a sort, and I love automating things, but I love this image.You’ll please excuse me now, I have to read all these cool blogs I’ve found before I can sleep tonight.
