Beginning 2010, ending Doctor Who

So, we’ve ended the naughts and moved on to the respectable and grown-up sounding double digits. We’re now in the age of space colonies and hovercars, aliens hanging about*, and underwater cities, and we’d better enjoy them since we’re all dying in two years… Or maybe that’s just the imaginings of modern-day sci-fi, where everything »

Ending 2009

So, 2009. Quite a year. It began in a state of flux; I was laid off of my job in late January, found out that the state of Virginia was messing up my credit by making up liens I never owed (this still has not really been resolved; they marked them as ‘Paid’ rather than removing them), my HOA alleged I owed them money for violations that were fixed years »

Relate

I lack the ability to relate to most people. This isn’t really an issue or a problem, other than the fact that I exude an amount of tolerance for their differences and opinions that is not extended to me in kind. »

Return from Comic-Con

I figured I might as well jot down a few things/impressions from the event. Here are a few quick takes: Celebrities: lots of famous people are at this event, so it’s hard not to see someone that’s recognizable. Some that I saw: Seth Green, John Landis, Stan Lee, Scott Ian, Bruce Campbell, and a dozen »

Who Are You?

When you think about who you are, what your identity is, what’s the first thing you think of? Your name, your profession, your role within your family or relationship, a combination of those things – or is it something more abstract? How many ‘you’s are there? How much of your identity have you created, and »

Jealousy

When I was younger, I always had to deal with issues of jealousy – both on the receiving and feeling ends. Anything I had, someone else wanted; and whatever I had, the grass was always greener somewhere else. Not much has changed in some aspects, but much has changed in others. Those that are jealous »

Follow

One of the things I used to hate the most about marketing was talking to marketers about marketing. It just seemed like these people never could see outside the box of ‘apply formula X and shrug helplessly if it doesn’t work.’ Rather than being proactive and employing sound business strategies while capitalizing on the uniqueness »

Offense and Industry Part II

I had a feeling that I’d want to add a bit more to what I wrote yesterday, as it’s a complicated subject filled with a lot of tangents (me?? tangents??) and, quite frankly, emotion. The sad thing is, none of this is exceptionally new, and it usually follows a predictable pattern: person does something that »

Offense and Industry

So there’s been a bit of a brouhaha over in the Flash/dev community over a presentation that was given at Flashbelt; unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend (so I can’t speak from firsthand experience about what happened), but I wanted to chime in on some of what’s being said – and not being said – »

Staying Sane for the Holidays

The holiday season is often seen as a time when the ‘rules don’t apply,’ where we can eat, drink, and spend in excess. Any declarations of an attempt at moderation are met with ‘oh, but it’s the holidays!’ and someone trying to force a rumball down your throat. And lest you try to be sensible, »
