The experimentation is continuing… I’ve been using something called Open Broadcaster Software to learn how to create streaming and recorded videos. So far so good. I found a FANTASTIC tutorial on YouTube (shout out to Nerd or Die!) and have been watching those to learn. My first stream was just a short week ago, but […]

The American Union.
Why do the states have to be United? The Constitution is not Holy Text. It’s not handed down by God. Why do we have to still be a Union? Maybe we can be like the EU? Just a series of business laws, free emigration and shared currency? Everyone would get what they want no? It […]
In the last few days I have been playing with video live streaming. I posted earlier about my first video and the follow up by others who seemed genuinely excited for me. Trying something new opens up and engages the mind. By taking the leap, trying something new, a whole new door opened. I don’t […]
Tired and unfocused but committed.
So I have committed to writing, but don't feel like writing. I have been committed to work and committed to new things. I am not getting enough sleep and so my excited quick-reacting mind that like to write is stalled. I could write about about Trump. But there is so much written that it's hardly […]
I know, I know, it’s not a popular opinion. Facebook is far from perfect and may be killing us! I want to acknowledge its value. First, in letting me share my work and shipping to a group that I know will respect and care for me. See my goofy sports video Second for connecting some […]
Part of my take-away from my altMBA experience was to ship. Getting work out into the world affects people. If it isn’t released then no one will ever know if it good or bad. Yesterday, I did two things I always wanted to do but was a afraid. One: use video to expresss myself. Two: […]
Look hard at the USA. What state are we in that young men feel the need to become terrorists? The state of the poor is the same as it is in Saudia Arabia, Pakistan or any other country traditionally home to terrorism.
I need your help to keep me writing. Please comment if you don’t hear from me on this blog everyday for the next 30 days.
I was on twitter and saw the young white men walking thru Charlottesville with torches. They chanted something inane. I didn't look up their message. It doesn't really matter. But I thought about it… watched soccer for a few hours, went on twitter before bed, and saw the faces of the men. The first thought […]
Best part of my 30-day course was the writing… Getting into the habit and keeping it going. Getting my blog back up and running reminded me that I used to write quite a bit. I’m going to keep it up! Things on my mind: It’s North Korea. Don’t worry so much. It’s a tiny country, […]
The world is far too serious right now and I just spent 30-days of intense learning and self-discovery in my altMBA course… I am happy that my beloved Manchester City Football Club and the Premier League will be returning this weekend. The season ended a short 90-days ago when the dreaded Chelsea lifted their second […]
We’re living in a failed state. The United States, are broken. At a time when we should be growing the public good and helping the poor, we’re taking away sharing resource and creating more inequality. Historically, when inequality is as high as it is today in the USA, you get despair, and regime change. That […]
Let the states be states…
Just read this in the National Review Got me thinking… One thing that I am beginning to believe in is the increase in States rights. The spectre of slavery was vanquished, racism has been LEGALLY removed from the law. So why are we trying to impose views on each other state by state? Maybe it’s time […]
A new home for my old stuff.
Found a new home for my old wordpress stuff and left Tumblr. Just wasn’t feeling like being a tween with a tween site. Plus, I’ve been working on wordpress sites lately and wanted to see how things worked. In the understatement of the century, WordPress is a big jumbled mess, but it’s a working big […]
Do you take our National Holidays for granted? Do you actually stop to reflect on their meaning? For the first time in a long time I am taking the time to reflect on the meaning of today. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the United States most revered and special citizens. I will not […]
