Thank you to all who visit my site, especially to my loyal fans who make it a point to take it all in (or put up with the madness) and give me feedback.
I have posted on a dizzying array of subjects, and I have done so erratically. However, everything I have posted – without exception – is right here on this site. Continue to enjoy, and thanks again.
I believe in producing.
The internet has brought the infinite free spread of ideas. In order to process those ideas properly, understand them, deal with them, one must produce some of those ideas. By experiencing the production, even on a small scale, you glimpse behind the curtain of the show that is modern media and gain understanding.
I “default to public” and this blog is the result of that. If I have an idea to express to somebody, I may write an email, I may even make a video, but then I trim it up a bit and post it. Rather than select my audience additively, I start with “the whole world” and subtract down to an appropriate audience. I like my ideas, why not?
Some lament that they have no time to blog. If you communicate at all and default to public, your ideas get further refined by the publicity and scrutiny of your friends and your blog grows automatically as you communicate.
I blog. You should too.

I am decided to entering the workforce again by completing an MBA and dedicating myself to a career. I believe that I am best suited for a type of job known as “technical support engineer” / “implementation engineer” / “account manager for technical products.” In this career, I would communicate with engineers to teach, manage, and troubleshoot technical products for users, both business and consumer.
