So anyway, I had a totally amazing phone conversation with an equally-amazing friend last night. It lasted for four hours (although it didn’t feel like it at all, and the only way I knew this was by sneaking a glance at my cell phone’s clock and the runtime on the call just before hanging up). … More The lost art of being in the Here and Now
Dear Twitter and Firefox: Stop it. I don’t know which one of you started it. But I’m pretty sure that you’re both at least partially to blame. In a previous post, I discussed my disgust with constant technology upgrades, and how they screw users in favor of device manufacturers and advertising firms. I totally understand … More Dear Twitter and Firefox – Stop It
Remember back when a new operating system release was a big deal, and software developers went to huge lengths to prevent unauthorized (read: non-paying) people from getting their hands on it? “We need to get paid,” they reasoned. Fast forward a few years (or a couple decades). Remember the surprise you probably experienced in more … More Tired of the Technology Arms Race
Dear CEOs of SEO/Marketing companies, Guys (and it’s usually guys, although occasionally, some women get in on the act as well) we need to have a talk. You keep following me on Twitter. I don’t know why. My Twitter account blatantly states that I’m Aspergian/autistic. That is to say, in more common (but less correct) … More SEO / Marketing people on Twitter, you’re doing it wrong
I didn’t mean to. Really, I didn’t. It just sort of happened. A little over a year ago, I was quite the regular on Facebook. I posted a lot, shared a lot, commented on a lot, participated in several various groups, and so on. Then came the realization that I’m an Aspie (Asperger’s) and the … More Pulling away from social media
So anyway, my big honking exam took place this morning. I have no idea how I did. I’ll find out in May. Yep, May. It’s a little frightening how three and a half years of various classes and conferences and three solid weeks of relentless studying get distilled down into just about three hours. Those … More Where was I?
Please forgive me, as this post is probably going to seem very Junior High (at best). Please know that I was not the instigator of such behavior; I merely got dragged into it when I was targeted. First, a little background: A handful of you reading this will already be aware of the recent Twitter … More It’s not always about you
Susan Miller, over at Astrology Zone (by far the best and most accurate astrologer I’ve ever known), had said early on in 2016 that Virgos could expect to be able to draw a line in the sand between everything that occurred before 2016 and everything that occurred afterward. Although she didn’t (couldn’t) provide specifics (everyone’s … More 2016 ~ The year the lightning bolt struck and everything changed…
Here in the United States, we celebrate this major family-oriented holiday called Thanksgiving. Tradition calls for getting together over a turkey-and-fixins dinner, and before we dig into the food, going around the table, each family member stating what they’re thankful for. What am I thankful for? Well, to be really honest (is there any other … More A very special Thanksgiving
First, I need to say that it’s been a blessing so far, in that within the span of 3.5 months, I’ve met several hundred people with whom I share some otherwise-uncommon traits. And I’ve received a metric tonne of support and friendship. I’ve hooked into a whole community of very awesome people. But there’s a … More Twitter is…strange.
