I don’t like doing podcasts, I get nervous, and just clam up, public speaking is just a fear that I’ve been trying to break…and up until recently I had done one podcast, which was an old cast of Apply Filters. It was a surprising invite to be interviewed on the Matt Report, and because of my fear […]
Been waiting, and waiting, for the final settlement on the VW diesel buyback/recall for months now, the “agreement” has been sealed until it was submitted to the courts today but I’m finding nothing that will help me figure out what I’m supposed to do (with my a3 tdi). Sigh. It looks like they won’t start […]
One of my new year goals is to do more talks, specifically speaking at meet-ups. Yesterday was my first; not the first of the year, my first talk that I’ve given to a complete set of strangers — ever. My hope that it would be easy to do a simple overview of Sprout Invoices was wrong. […]
Feeling a little guilt that I haven’t fulfilled my goals of writing weekly here and at sproutapps.co here’s something… Since early February most of my free time has been committed to Little League baseball. Managing my son’s team, volunteering as a board member, and now managing a 6-7 All-Star team . It’s been awesome managing/coaching, truly grateful, even with […]
I’ve been to a lot of the San Francisco WordCamps, including the first, and this year’s was the best for me. Everything seemed completely different. My approach was definitely different this year than any other. Instead of shying away from conversations I embraced them.

I was on apply_filters yesterday! I didn’t expect it either. Not a lot of people know this but I’m extremely nervous when it comes to public speaking. I get really uncomfortable, I mumble out nonsense, and sometimes my mind runs an infinite loop of [What the hell did you just say?!]. That’s what happened yesterday before Brad […]
I never wanted to write about this topic but after seeing this today I couldn’t help but share my Alzheimer’s experience. If you watch Seth Rogan’s testimony you’ll briefly hear about his mother-in-law and the complications, conditions and problems they had; my mom had those very same issues, exactly the same. After years of trying […]
It’s been a long journey and even though you still kick butt encoding video you’re too big and you can’t run OS X Mavericks (officially).
Posted our Dolphins, Whales, Snorkel, Sail from Hawaii Nautical pics to the flickr set.
The video didn’t end showing how awesome this was but this is the best I have. What’s missing is how close we (snorkel guide with me on the outer part of the reef) got by swimming down, I had given him my camera but I didn’t get a chance to tell him it was already […]
