I have been putting a lot of thought to the fact that I think boys are completely screwed in today’s school system. Well, I think girls are too, but boys tend to be the ones with attention issues. Really, it’s any kid that has an active imagination and creativity coursing through their veins that are [...]

I had an absolute shit day at work recently. If you add up all the positive aspects of the day, you’d think I was insane. The office was empty. We’re busy as can be right now. Bills are being paid. Co-workers were on vacation or on site at a client’s. It was quiet, and I [...]
I’ve been thinking about a blog post by Penelope Trunk about how she thinks Marissa Maier has Asperger Syndrome. It is one of those posts that can get one thinking on many levels. First, it takes some serious brass balls to make a public statement like that. But then again, I am Maier has heard [...]
Let me start this post based on the idea that this is a completely hair-brained theory. It isn’t based in any research, nor is it based on anything resembling fact. It is based on a conversation I had with someone yesterday about being a vegetarian. I mentioned that I’ve tried being a vegetarian before. It [...]
I wrote an article for Core77 called “The Attention Deficit Designer”. It was published yesterday and similar to the reaction I got from my IDSA presentation, I am nothing short of humbled by the comments and reaction I am getting from this article. Thanks to everyone who took the time to retweet, send me an [...]
Floor hockey season started for me on Monday. A group of old friends running around a gym pretending their still 24, throwing our hands in the air as we score while pulling a hamstring all at the same time. It’s great fun. What inspired me to write floor hockey was less the floor hockey and [...]
Later. It’s a simple word, really. So easy to throw around and use for just about everything. “That time doesn’t work, let’s do it later”. “Later, Honey. I have a headache”. “I’ll go for that run later”. As with most things ADD, “later” is another one of those things that falls on the spectrum of [...]
Friend and Colleague Michael DiTullo posted a video about the emotional power of music (you can see it below). It’s one of those things that taps to the core of humans. I see it as a basic need, similar to food, water, and sex. The world wouldn’t survive without it. I’ve always loved music. I’ve [...]
I’ve been reading the first book of the Percy Jackson series with my daughter. You can imagine my amusement when I started reading a book with my daughter where the protagonist turns out to be the half blood son of Poseidon. The part that is actually amusing is the fact that the characteristics of this [...]
It is turning into ride-to-work-Friday for me lately. It is the one day that seems to fall out that I don’t have meetings around town to drive to. I would like to get a bit better at scheduling my week so that I could get at least one more day a week riding in. My [...]
