One Glassy Gal

This past week in NYC, I had the unexpected chance to try out Google Glass.  Google just recently started rolling out devices to a lucky few who are either influencers in the space or signed up at Google IO last year to be some of the first developers to try them out. I am not […]

Quantified From Birth

Quantified Self

There has been a lot of buzz in the mobile industry about quantifying oneself. There is copious amounts of data you can collect about where you have been, how you felt when you were there, what things you saw, what route you took to get there, how fast you got there and who you were […]

Ok, so I slacked off on Friday and didn’t post my idea. It was for good reason. I had some decision making to do that was occupying all my mind power.  More on that next week, but for now here is the last post in my Idea a Day series. It has been a fun […]

An Idea A Day: #4 Camp Lean

We are huge campers, we always have been. It is one of the reasons we decided to move from Florida to Oregon. The prevalence of poisonous snakes, centipedes, scorpions and heat, not to mention alligators made camping just a little less carefree than it should be. In Florida your odds of seeing one if not all of those […]

An Idea a Day: #2 Me Go Topo

Me Go Topo Ok, what was I thinking when I challenged my self to have ideas? Coming up with an idea is hard enough when you have a specific problem to solve, a target audience has been identified and you have metrics and KPI goals to meet, but an idea out of thin air? Way […]

An Idea A Day: #1 Smart Hair Ties

Remember last week when I said I was going to pull the covers off my own creative doubt and share an idea a day, warts and all, for one whole week? When I set the start day for today, I didn’t realize how quickly it would creep up on me. But, I set a goal […]

As I gazed on Jack, my four year old, at our neighborhood park I could see his intense little blue eyes darting back and forth scanning the landscape. He seemed to be in a bit of a trance.  “Jack” I said. “Jack sweety, what are you thinking about?”  “I am not thinking, I am zooming […]

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 […]
