I just described your website right? Guess what? Everyone else’s too.

It’s about social media boys and girls. That is the next frontier. Don’t get me wrong, a website is absolutely necessary and serves a purpose, but as far as things like building trust and engaging people…I can tell you that reading about Dr. Sarah’s education and affinity for long walks on the beach doesn’t do it for me. Again it needs to be there but it’s kind of like your diploma on the wall. Good to know you graduated but doesn’t help me decide if I want you to be my dentist.

A Piece Of Tech To Change Your Life

A piece of tech to change your life

 

Way more useful than I expected.

 

I often resist getting another piece of tech. Every single one means one more plug, one more box to recycle, one more potential headache and/or regret. I was this way with the Amazon Echo. I added one to my Amazon wish list and didn’t actually pull the trigger for a full year. And I love the thing. You’ve probably heard/seen/read me talk about it.

 

So here’s the latest example, and I’d venture so far as to say it’s changed my life. I’ve been eyeing one for almost two years and a few months ago finally picked up a Wake up light. Have you heard about these? Reviews are soooo good that it actually made me skeptical.

The Boiled Frog – are you it?

Maybe a little background to give you a fair shot at answering the question. They say if you put a frog in water and then bring it to a boil the frog will stay in the water until it’s too late. But, if you boil the water and then put the frog in it will immediately jump out. The takeaway is that the frog is unaware of the change because it happens gradually.

Best of Tech 2015

It’s that time of the year again! Cool tech stuff from the year to marvel at, scoff at, or maybe even add to someone’s Christmas list. Some of this stuff isn’t even for sale yet but I hope it will be someday!It’s that time of the year again!

Work

As some of you out there in the WMDDS community may have heard, my wife Christine and I recently welcomed a new addition, Rosie, to our family. She is doing awesome and it’s been an absolute blessing spending time home with her. (all typos and nonsense hereafter can be attributed to sleep deprivation) Major life changes are always introspective, and this was especially so for me. Being away from work for a while and regularly hearing things like “What? Paternity Leave? Seriously?” got me thinking about work:  how we think about it, how we do it, and where it stands in our priorities. This is a bit of a foray outside the scope of “Tech Q&A” but as with anything today Tech can be weaved into it.
