That Darn Little Tree

My post on 3six5 this weekend That darn little tree in the yard got me thinking.


Spoken Word

April 14th, 2012

I’m sort of a geek when it comes to presentation skills. Not that I’ve perfected giving presentations (far from it), but I enjoy exploring new methods, tips, and tricks. I recently came across a copy of the book Resonate by Nancy Duarte . Great book. Thank you @mppeuro! I actually watched her TED video prior to reading the book. Highly recommend. One day, I’d like to take her workshop in the South Bay. One day soon.

Fine Time for Digital Education

March 18th, 2012

This week’s Fast Company article that I wrote has received such an overwhelmingly positive response! It’s great that so many people are interested and willing to invest in education. I believe we’re just at the start of agencies and brands owning education in a new and different way. The time is now to start your own program. The steps I mention in the article are just the beginning. I plan to continue writing about the topic and publishing the “how to” guide in the next year. If you’re interested in hearing more or just want to chat about the subject – contact me here or on Twitter. Thanks for all the support!

Make it to Makers Faire

May 22nd, 2011

I attended the local Makers Faire event yesterday, What a great day. When did “making” become so mainstream? Or is it just this wonderful area of the country I live in? There were some really interesting things to explore – from software, compost, to robots. I’d recommend two days to see it all, if you have the time and energy. And spend time (buy some things!) in the Maker Faire retail tent. I stared at the Arduino kits for some time, they were selling fast. How awesome is it that so many people understand (or want to understand) open source electronic prototyping platforms? My next project? A garage built longboard. Once I can wheel around again, that’s my first project. Get down there today!
