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?

Raising Boys to Be HuMans

A few weeks ago, my 7 year old and I had the big talk. No, there were no birds chirping or bees buzzing, this was a different talk. A more important talk. As we were lying in bed reading a book, his little brother was making funny faces and dancing around. He looked at his […]

I’ll Take an Ounce of Bliss Please.

Two years! It has been two years since I’ve posted one damn thing on this blog!  A lot has changed….for starters Google Glass is so not cool anymore. HoloLens is all the overpriced-rage now and Google Cardboard is the more economical DIY dalliance into a wearable virtual reality candy land. Speaking of candy land, weed […]

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 […]

Are We Selling Career Porn to Women?

Is Time’s recent Sheryl Sandberg cover selling career porn to women? I have always had a lot of respect for Sheryl Sandberg, not just because we share a name and she actually spells it right, but because of what she represents to me as a women in the tech industry. To me her trajectory to […]

Raising a Terminator

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pancreatic Cancer Sucks

How could one little yellow thing cause so much trouble?  Pancreatic Cancer has been top of mind lately with the recent death of Steve Jobs. 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 […]
