THE TANZANIA CHRONICLES #9- From Sunrise to Summit (Banner)

From Sunrise to Summit: The Tanzania Chronicles #9

The greatest trick that Casey Palmer ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist. Or… he just worked a week with 40 hours of overtime and had no time to blog. You decide which story is real. Okay, as a premise to this post, I’ve been […]

‘cross Waters from Dar and Strange Men in Cars — Zanzibar: The Tanzania Chronicles #6

So we woke up in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city — a fate it shares with Toronto in that it’s the largest, but not its country’s capital city. Dar es Salaam was filled with cultural undertones that gave the city a bit of an edge to it […]

Dragon Dictation: The Tanzania Chronicles #3

Sometimes you don’t really have much to write; those are the times where you need to switch it up a little. Today’s voice post represents stepping away from always trying to find something momentous to write about and sometimes just taking a good look at wherever I happen […]

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 CCXLV: Trust Your Instincts

I can’t lie to you, guys — there’s something deep within me, gnawing away, telling me not to write a blog post tonight. Telling me that there’s things out there in the night that I could be doing instead and to just let it slide this once and go […]

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 CXCV: Lost
