The 2K11 24/7 CCLIV: Don’t Argue With Fools

“A wise man told me don’t argue with foolsCause people from a distance can’t tell who is who”–Jay-Z, “Takeover” Reading this blog, you might be led to believe that I’m an idealist. I write of a world that I can only dream of where we all get along and know […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLII: When the Student Becomes the Master

Recently I found myself speaking on an Intern Alumni Panel for work, where four of us spoke to new, fresh-faced interns about our experiences and advice. I strongly believe that we should always strive to pass knowledge on to others. It’s impossible for one person to know everything, but if we combine our knowledge […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLI: It’s Easier to Ask Forgiveness than Permission

Except when it comes to Sarah (and that’s primarily because I know that it would cause FAR more trouble), I rather ask forgiveness for my actions than permission. Not that you’re being impolite about things or doing something that you know you’re going to regret — it’s just that much of the time, you […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLIX: FOMO

If you were to ask Sarah, she could confirm for you that despite the boundless mass that is my ego, there ARE things that I absolutely SUCK at. And one of those things is SLEEPING. I’ll admit it — I’m a bit of a workaholic. I’m up at all hours of night scribbling […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLII: How to Network Sans Jerk

Last night I found myself visiting #devTO — an event described as follows: You love it, hate it, debug it, dream about it, obsess over it, test it, throw it away… because you don’t just write code. #devTO, a place for all developers, regardless of age, experience or […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLI: How to Make the World a Better Place

The world could be a better place, but we just don’t care. Or don’t care ENOUGH. We act like the homeless don’t exist. We put doing for selves as priority one without a second thought. Helping isn’t something that’s VALUED by the society around us. Who are we […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXXXVIII: Crashaversary — The Fourth F

The farther I travel down the rabbit hole of social networking, the more I discover about myself and the things that matter to me. Last night's Crashaversary was key in helping to illuminate this point for me. Starting with Twitter is much like how you’d first use any […]
