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: #5 Good Bones

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 […]

My Type

I picked this little dusty old typewriter at Portland Flea for $40. It is not my only typewriter. When I was a little girl my dad had an old Royal typewriter. The kind where the keys stuck together if you typed too fast and the ribbon was so old and clung so loosely to the spool, […]

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 […]

Food Colored Antz

AT-110805-colorful-ants-03.photoblog600

Check out these beautifully colored Antz. Some dude saw their abdomens turn white after ingesting some spilled milk so he decided to dye sugar water and watch their bellies turn magnificent colors and then photograph them. Pretty sweet huh? Also makes us wonder if what we put in our stomachs is good for us!

It All Started with a Nice Pair of Gams

Holy Moly yesterday Instagr.am hit 15o million photos and 7 million. More impressive is that they did this with just four employees and it has only been around for ten months!  I couldn’t help but feel slightly responsible for those stats. Well, for at least 379 of the 150 million photos.  I love Instagr.am. I […]

Mobile Apps, It’s Time to Be a Pushy Redhead

For those of you that follow me on Twitter, you have no doubt heard me complain about my iPhone 3GS. I complain about how it overheats, drops calls and the battery life is essentially non-existent. You have heard me wish and even beg for the date to be announced when I can get my hands […]

Excuse Me Waiter, There is an iPhone in My Soup

Iphone in My Soup

You may remember my post from quite a while back about reconnecting with an old friend.  I made a vow in that post to keep in touch with him by any means possible and also mentioned that I hoped to have a chance to to see him race the next time he was in Oregon. […]
