Can The New President Service What He Sold? It’s Monday morning and like many of us, our 45th President is at work.  You can march, break windows, start fires and topple all the cars you want but that fact will not change.  Even the marches, while impressive and important  won’t compel the man to alter behavior that defies the laws of physics.  In his world,...

As My Daughter Grows Up Her Orbit Expands Holidays at our house have always been happy.  That’s because we’re a small unit without a lot of moving parts and because we live hundreds of miles from our nearest relative.  For Christmas and New Year it’s usually just me, my wife, my daughter and one or two pets.   We spend our days opening presents and...

We are not who we thought we were Change / Politics / Real Life / Uncategorized

We Were Not Who We Thought We Were The election revealed more about America and Americans than most of us expected.  Before this election we felt we knew ourselves pretty well.  Turns out that we didn’t; and we still don’t.  In the aftermath of an unprecedented and unexpected Trump victory, we need to deal with some new ideas about who we are and how we...

Copier is holding me hostage AI / Change / Science / Technology

HP is Using AI to Keep My Ink Filled and It’s Creepy   The email was innocent enough; in fact it was so innocuous that I almost deleted it without reading. It was from Hewlett-Packard and it looked like all their other pleas for me to buy a printer or ink or paper or cloud storage.  The things I get from other companies that have...
