By 2065 We Will All Be Lawnmower Man

Today I read an article where Palmer Luckey of Oculus fame was quoted as saying “I’d be very surprised if 50 years from now we’re still all carrying around slabs in our pockets when you can just project a virtual environment,”  But that is crazy right, we won’t abandon our phones, we are too addicted right?

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 […]

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 […]

I Have Been Moved

Moves App

This weekend I decided to try out the Moves App, mainly because I asked for either the Nike Fuel Band or the Jawbone Up for Christmas and I got neither…zilch. I think by now my husband knows my pattern of buying a workout gadget that is going to change my life only to have it […]

In Good Company on the Mountainside

Mt. Hood

Yesterday was a reunion tour of sorts for me. I had coffee and lunch with old co-workers from two jobs ago, and then drinks and dinner out with some other friends from that same job.  They were some of the people that I have worked alongside and known the longest in PDX. For the most […]

Withdrawals

World Map dots pink

Now that I find myself without a permanent home, I have found all kinds of daily work related habits that just won’t quit.  Like my need for my morning scone, there just not as good on the east side or downtown as they are in the Pearl, good coffee…it’s a long drive to Stumptown from […]

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 […]
