Long Time No Post

It’s been a long time since posting, which is pretty sad given that there’s been so much going on.  It’s also pretty understandable given that, so perhaps that balances out. As a brief run down–Juniper is three and hilarious.  She’s also really smart, and sweet, and terrible.  She has enjoyed planting her own flowers with […]

Tiring of Humans and Our Own Greed

Just now on Twitter I saw a note from Ed Yong on polar bears starving to death.  It was a tweet with a video, the video still showed a bear obviously in death throes; it looked like a white fur skeleton.  I couldn’t watch the video.  It hurts too much to watch animals suffer like […]

Mobile Computing

It’s been a long time now that I’ve expected mobile computing to take over the desktop computing platforms.  There’s always going to be a desktop platform (or at least some version of it) as it’s so helpful to have large screens for analyzing data.  I use two wide screens at work, usually have multiple Excel […]

The Cutting Edge

Well, it happened.  The famed Bootleg Series just released “The Cutting Edge” an amalgamation of recordings from the three different albums at the pinnacle of Bob Dylan’s creative peak:   Bringing It All Back Home, 1965 Highway 61 Revisited, 1965 Blonde On Bonde, 1966 These three albums are all master works of creativity.  At the […]

Posterity and Writing

A few weeks ago someone sent me an email asking me to update a link.  The link was for a top blogs post I had made six years ago. Six years.  That is a LONG time.  I’d forgotten about that post a long time ago, honestly.  When I go back and look at my writing […]

7 Years at Redmarketer

It has been a full seven years since I began writing here on redmarketer.  At the time of inception, this blog was mostly oriented around marketing in the new age.  Digital presence for most companies was still relatively nascent.  I worked at a small company at that point but was readying myself for business school […]

Wolf In White Van

Having completed Catch 22 a month ago, it was time to pick up a new book. I’d asked for a Wolf In White Van during Christmas. John Darnielle is one of my all time favorite writers, but only as a singer songwriter in the Mountain Goats.  His song writing is truly exceptional, taking on all […]

Winter Wrap

This is the time of year that seasonal affective disorder usually takes hold, but we’ve had a very light winter and it hasn’t been completely crumby. The new snowblower we bought barely got used, we had a really nice December and January, with colder than typical November and February. But thus far it’d rate above […]

Lack of Cogency

In the last six months or so, it’s struck me how few new ideas or thought patterns have been developing in my head.  I’ve got it narrowed down to a few reasons: 1.  Work.  Being busy and having a lot to do are a constant, but there is more to this.  There is a ceiling […]

A Working Vocabulary

I read a pretty good amount.  Not nearly as much as a few decades back, but enough to keep me well informed regarding news and entertained.  Have since I was a lot younger.  Used to write a lot as well, but not nearly so much presently either. Lately it’s become apparent that I use words […]
