Happy New Year!

  A look back at 2013 and what 2014 might have in store for me. Special thanks to my friends on app.net and family that got me through the rough parts of the year! Discovering how easy it was to make podcasts through app.net really made a difference during my darker days. I feel like …

Changing the world one person at a time

  I don’t know if it’s cool or sad to have a guiding principle in your life based off of a (very) minor character in a Salinger book. Sorenson’s fate in Franny and Zooey led me to reorient my view of people’s purpose in life. His ended up being a way to have some insight …

My current charities

How I use my iPhone pt.2 (long)

This is old news to my friends on app.net but I have some family and friends still trying to get a handle on the possibilities of having a computer in your pocket.   Ok, continuing on my apps I use theme…   The app store is absolutely awash in weather apps. Most of them seem …
