Today was the rockin’ launch of the NMC Campus opened virtually in Second Life. After much morning prep, we ran two different 2 hour sessions, at 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM PST. I am working on a new NMC site that should server as the primary news outlet (read as blog published, podcast enhanced, tagged, and flickr syndication encrustated).

I like this new job. My day started as early as normal, with the first chore (coffee making) and than a solid hour run to clear the mind. Then it was the tough choices. Which jeans to slip on? Or just lounge in boxers? Shave or not? (I took jeans and a shave, it is […]
Technically, this weekend, I was un-employed. Last week I was cleaning my office at Maricopa, digitizing old silly artifacts, tossing files, and trying to organize 14 years of web sites. Thursday, was an open house at our office, and I was overwhelmed by the people who paraded by to wish me well. And many gave […]
Sometimes, or maybe frequently, a post here is done rather rashly, impulsively, and often stupidly wrong. I step in my own dog poop. There’s nice places on the net where nice people say only nice things. Not here. Hopefully reader glean my “style” as my way of trying to provoke discussion, controversy, and get a […]
