  • Is Privacy Worth Worrying About?

    Is Privacy Worth Worrying About?

    This morning I had to add my debit card number into Facebook Messenger in order to receive some money someone sent me. And just for a minute I thought, “Do I really want to give my debit card number to Facebook? I mean they just had yet another data breach of nearly 267,000,000 American users […]

  • Sir, why are you irate? (My Google Saga)

    “Sir, why are you irate?” This was what Jonathan, a customer service agent in Google Montreal’s Google Apps call center, said to me this morning. Well Jonathan– allow me to tell you why I am irate with your company right now. One of your corporate values is Do No Evil. In fact, your founder has […]

  • If Your Phone Could Talk

    We used to say you could tell a person’s priorities by looking at his checkbook. I’d submit to you that today you can tell a person’s priorities by how he uses his phone. If your phone could talk… what would it say about you? Who is he talking to? Who is he texting? How is […]

  • Google honors John Lennon

    One of the most fun jobs on the internet must be to be on the team that plays with Google’s logo. I love this little doodle. Maybe I’m in love with the style or maybe the music? All I know if this is just too cool. I want to be a dreamer, forever. ht to […]

  • Facebook Morphs Blogging Again

    Blogging, by very nature, is a fluid art. Just a few years ago I thought I was pretty slick because I could journal on my computer using Microsoft Word. Flash forward a few years, to around 2000, and I learned that I could take those Word documents and convert them to webpages. It was cumbersome […]

  • Confession: My Blog Pays the Bills

    Here’s a Google Adsense screenshot from this morning. Of course, here’s where I got my screenshot.

  • Secret Sex

    I’ve been around Christians long enough to know that they like to talk about sex. In fact, I know enough about internet traffic to know that only one thing is more popular than a post about sex. In fact, most of you are reading this because you clicked on a link with a keyword you […]

  • I could do that, it’s easy

    This week I’ve had a couple of people approach me about YMX. One said, “I thought about doing that but you just got to it first.” The other person said, “I thought about doing that but I just didn’t have the time.” Really, both are saying the same thing. I’ve heard it hundreds of times […]
