So if you’ve happened to hear my rock climbing story, there is a decent chance you’ve seen my 8th grade yearbook and the photo of me playing volleyball. I always highlight the volleyball picture. I don’t do the same with the cover. I happened to be a co-editor-in-chief back in the day and was part […]
(This article originally appeared in the newsletter for NASSCED) Around this time last year, my fiancée gave me a gift certificate to a knife skills class at Sur la table. I’m an avid Food Network viewer and wanna-be-chef, so I already knew some of the basics thanks to Alton Brown, but the class introduced me […]
Yesterday I had a wonderful opportunity to meet up for an early breakfast with a friend of mine, Thom Singer. Thom is a fellow speaker I first encountered a few years ago at the annual convention for the National Speakers Association. He’s a really nice guy, and I thoroughly enjoyed his down to earth nature, […]
So my friend Derek posted this great link encouraging people to make 11/11/11 Nigel Tufnel Day. I recognize that many if not most my readers are unfamiliar with Tufnel as featured in the brilliant mockumentary, This is Spinal Tap. The film is awesome. Watch it. The famous scene: Nigel Tufnel: “The numbers all go to […]
He was staring at me. Okay, it was only for a minute or so, but I was surprised I kept his attention that long. After all, he wasn’t even one (or at least that is what my “baby-dar” was telling me) and this was a pretty exciting aircraft. Some freak out when a baby sits […]
On Saturday night, my girlfriend and I met up with several friends on Ocean Beach in San Diego. We thought it’d be fun to have a nice bonfire on the beach, cook some dinner, and enjoy some nice conversation. My girlfriend and I brought the bulk on the supplies: two big bunches of firewood, matches, […]
I’m just about to head out of town to attend the wedding of a really good friend of mine. Tomorrow morning is also trash day, and with Arizona heat, it’s a good idea to throw out perishables as close to trash day as humanly possible. So today, I cleaned out my refrigerator. Nothing wrong with […]
Don’t worry. I’ll keep out of a lot of the politics currently taking place over the complexity of the situation in Libya. I have my own personal viewpoints, but I won’t use today’s blog to post them. Rather, I wanted to address an interesting point made in the March 29th episode of The Daily Show. […]
I spent this past weekend up in Payson, Arizona the current students of the ASU Leadership Scholarship Program. It was a great experience (I should even have another video entry up soon that I shot while I was up in N. AZ). As an alum of the program, I’m always excited to see the current […]
Today, I finally got around to watching Seth Godin’s 2006 talk at the TED Gel Conference. It’s a really great presentation highlighting seven reasons why things are “broken.” Check it out: Seth Godin at Gel 2006 from Gel Conference on Vimeo. The website mentioned in the talk has been changed to the Good Experience Blog. […]
