I’ve been fascinated by tablet computers since they first started coming out, by which I mean back in the days when Palm Pilots were the closest we had. When Dell came out with their Axim Pocket-PC line, I ended up with three versions (the oldest of which is still kicking around as a sort of functional paperweight). […]
Today is Parade Day in Scranton. If you don’t know what that means – and honestly, if you’re not from the greater Northeastern PA area, why would you? – it’s the most sacred and holy day of the year, when the city of Scranton swells with an influx of revelers all here for the annual […]
Pecha Kucha Night Scranton was a HUGE success and a heck of a lot of fun! My presentation, complete with narrative, is posted on my professional site – click the image above to jump over there and take a look.
Some shameless self-promotion – I’ll be presenting at Pecha Kucha Scranton on Saturday, January 28th.

Yep, that’s me, on a horse. Second time in almost 26 years, which is rather sad for a kid who grew up watching John Wayne movies. At any rate, this was last Saturday night and I’m just now able to walk normally again. (If you’ve ever ridden a horse, you know what this means.) Which […]
In the past decade, the wonderful tradition of airport fly-ins has become almost mythological, fading out of the world. It’s a shame, one that saddens me personally, because I have such fond memories of attending fly-ins as a child, at the little airport I grew up around in Vermont. From the time I could talk, […]
