If you ask someone “what’s your favorite holiday?” you’re sure to get a variety of responses. Some love the festive lights, music, and spirit of Christmas. Others prefer the smells, tastes, and family atmosphere of Thanksgiving. Hanukkah, Easter, New Years, and even Kwanzaa might make the list. But for me, Halloween will always […]

There is no such thing as privacy 4
Another day, another story about nude photos of celebrities being hacked and posted online. I won’t mention the names of the celebrities in this most recent round, because it really doesn’t matter… and I really don’t want to accidentally show up in web searches of people looking for the photos. […]

If you’re a Facebook user, you’ve probably already seen the red equal sign graphic that users are posting as their profile photo in support of equal marriage rights. I’ve even seen variations of it that have been altered to show the mathematical sign for “not equal,” in support of the […]

I received a comment on a previous blog post recently arguing that “gun’s don’t make us safer.” By extension, I’ll link that to an even more general argument I’ve heard lately that “guns aren’t safe.” Oh… guns are dangerous, you say? Well, um, yeah. No duh. They’re literally designed to […]

I’m writing this post on January 16, 2013 — the same day that President Obama released a document entitled Now Is The Time: The President’s plan to protect our children and our communities by reducing gun violence. The full text of the document is available here. This blog post isn’t […]

Japan Escalator 8
Like most, I was horrified by the images of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated large areas in Japan. As expected, the news coverage had all the anticipated shots: flooding, property damage, distressed adults, crying children, widespread carnage in general. Much of the footage was similar to that seen in the […]

Why no Japanese looters? Because they stand to one side ...

My wife often notes that I wear a lot of T-shirts. She’s right. 100% cotton T-shirts are comfortable, stylish, and they allow me to express myself; whether it’s my devotion to a certain Italian racing team or making such bold statements as “I’m gonna come at you like a Spider Monkey,” […]

I attended a funeral yesterday for the father of a lifelong friend of my wife, Gerald “Mac” McManus. Mac was buried at Tahoma National Cemetery with full military honors after more than two decades of active duty in the United States Air Force, including service in Vietnam and Korea. I didn’t […]

Evening Magazine, a local show here in Seattle on NBC-affiliate KING5, did a segment on “over the top” home theaters. They tracked me down on the Internet (not really that hard to do) and talked me into allowing a film crew into the house (which also wasn’t that hard to do), […]

This is a video of my presentation as part of the BYU Business School’s Entrepreneur Lecture Series on January 11, 2010. Normally, I’d wear a tie, bring PowerPoint slides, and try to inspire the kids into being entrepreneurs. This time, I took a slightly different approach. 🙂

My black belt test is scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend 2010. I’ve been working toward it since late 2001. Yesterday, with 180 days to go, I decided to increase the intensity of my workouts. In fact, I’m typing this from my elliptical in my basement gym. I’m making a public […]

Even hotter than she was in high school! 2
Keri and I attended her 20-Year High School Reunion last night. I’m certain that Keri (who is naturally shy) is constantly terrified that I’m going to embarass her at events like this, but I was on my best behavior and things went great. It was CRAZY hot inside the place, […]
