From GW to the Waterfront…

Wow.  In the past few days, we baby boomers have lost some iconic figures.  Glen Frey.  David Bowie.  All folks whose music I enjoyed profusely.  Of course, Alan Rickman- a non-musician- died almost simultaneously to those two.   And, today, Maurice White (of Earth, Wind, and Fire) succumbed to his Parkinson’s Disease.

Because, as I know from living in Massachusetts and Michigan, 24 to 36 inches of snow takes weeks to disappear, even if the temperature hits 60, as it has lately.

Deadly Purple?

Taking that purple pill?  Well… maybe it’s time to reconsider.

I admit it.  I’ve never had a problem with acid reflux.  Oh, sure, once or twice a year, when I was sick, it’s been a very short affliction.  So, it’s easy for me to say stop.   But, even if it’s not easy to say stop- I’m telling you STOP RIGHT NOW!

Driving Miss Daisy? (And, Tom, Bob, Lisa, too!)

You know if you are of a certain age, you can probably recall the pent-up emotion and elation you had on your 16th or 17th birthday.  Back when it was my turnfor this, it wasn’t perfect-  impossible to get a drink until you were 18.  (Nowadays, we think making folks wait- that’s really read as purchase illegally- until their 21st birthday is reachedto sit at a bar.)

Gaming ADD?

I’ve written about Bob Langer before.  (This is one of my more recent mentions.) He’s one of the smartest guys I’ve ever known and has been involved in the development of a slew of radically different products.  He’s also one of the founders of Pure Tech.  (He is not an employee there- he stays associated with MIT, where he guides the next generation of prolific inventors to help make this world great.)

How long?

Just the other day, I had a client ask me about records retention.  And, as I prepared to answer her query,  I realized that a lot of you probably have the same questions.  So….

Pay for Performance. Really!

No Gravatar

I read an article recently about a new trend.   Ok.  They thought it was a new trend.  We’ve been doing that since the mid 70s.  But, then again, like the products and processes we’ve developed, our ideas seem to be those to be trendy in a decade or two or three.
