Government Tech Trends to Watch in 2013

One of the reasons I enjoy this time of year, aside from perfecting Sticky Toffee Pudding recipes (seriously, you should try this one…), is the annual technology prediction discussions for the upcoming year.  While I don’t pay attention to every single technology prediction made (usually by companies trying to sell me something) the “…See More

Rock Star Conditioning: 4 things you can do today to bring out your inner business Rock Star

The start of a New Year for most means time to wax nostalgically on the previous year and set out to embark on the New Year with all kinds of well-meant resolutions for the future.  I, like many others, have set audacious goals for myself with every intention of following through and like many others have fallen victim to lack of focus, laziness, crazy schedules, and any other excuse I can think of to distract myself from the real issue.  The real issue is that I and most like me define an…See More

I think this technology has so many useful applications, and I do… Continue

About a month ago I decided to renew my contract with AT&T and upgrade to the iPhone 4 after much loud and vocal discontent with both AT&T and the speed of my iPhone 3g after one of the OS updates.

That's a good use of a Saturday...love the blog posts. Would be awesome if you did one on a semi-regular basis (weekly, bi-weekly) - maybe cross-posted from the Ning network you are building as cross-promo
