When a Politician is Born, Apparently a Woman Gets Saved.

Obama Election Night

I really try to steer away from political discussions here, but the political ad I saw today was enough to jumpstart me right out of blogger hibernation. Full disclosure, I am a lefty. If after reading that fact about me, you like me less, then I guess we weren’t meant to be.  I was raised […]

Thanks to Subtext this is my 100th Post!

I found my voice and creative side, I learned that I love writing and photography, I have met amazing new friends and genuine connections in the tech community, my 3 year old was technologically potty trained and started preschool on […]

Want Some Candy for that Digital Privacy?

It is Halloween time and with that comes the resurgence of freaky serial killer folklore, scary movies, ironic costumes, teeth-rotting candy and the new soon-to-be, if not already, viral Facebook App Take This Lollipop designed to give you the chills about what it would be like to be hacked and cyber-stalked by a lunatic. It demonstrates […]

Opal of my Eye

The best part of my career has always been the people. I have been lucky over the years to work with some of the most highly talented people in the industry, fortunate to learn from and collaborate with them, and even better to become friends with them and watch their families grow. So it is […]

Steve was a man who contributed his immeasurable brillance to technology and influenced the ways humans communicate and share their lives. He was an innovator, a genius but most heart-breaking […]

I Didn’t Know Steve Jobs, But He Knew Me

Steve Jobs died today. There is so much I want to say, but it is already being said or will be said so much more eloquently than I ever could.  For now all I can say is thank you for knowing me, Steve. Thank you for giving me a place to find my creativity and […]

Potty Training for the Mobile Elite

Why haven’t I been posting lately you ask?  I made a conscious effort to scale back my social media content sharing to tackle this biotch they call potty training! If someone had told me that I would one day be showing a little boy how to “hold it” so that he doesn’t spray the entire […]

Mobile 9/11

The last few days there has been a plethora of 911 coverage as we reach the 10 year of anniversary of that awful day. As I watched Matt Lauer interview familiy members of the fallen and replay audio from that fateful day this morning, I dared to think of what it would be like if […]

Current Status: Borrowing Luck

When I was a little girl my mom’s nickname for me was worry wart because I worried about everything. I chewed my nails down to the nub worrying about my grades, even though I got all A’s.  I even worried about my dog getting taken by the Sausage Man when she was outside late at […]

Your App is But a Bead in an Etch A Sketch

When you were a kid did you ever break apart an Etch A Sketch to see what was inside? I did. What I found was thousands, maybe millions of silver bead-like balls and a whole lot of dust. Today when I was searching for a new iPad case I came across this case: Looking at […]
