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.

You pay how much?

Yeah, that’s the question I asked myself every month when our cell phone bill came.  $150 for 2 phones? By the way only one had a data plan. When did this become acceptable? The norm? My attitude as a tech guy was always that I needed the best possible plan and coverage. After all my livelihood depended on my having access to the internet and cell coverage. So the best carrier and the best plan (grandfathered in unlimited data plan - score!) was the logical choice.

6 Year Anniversary

In June of 2009 the figurative ship that is DDS Integration set sail. We’re now coming up on 6 years, and we are grateful beyond words to all those who helped us get here, most notably, our wonderful clients. A special thanks goes to a very special office in Okemos that urged/nudged/dragged me into embarking on my own. It was their encouragement and persistence that ultimately convinced me that I could do this and that the Dental market of West Michigan needed my services. Suffice to say they were right. It’s been a thrill and an honor every step of the way. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
