    Kinesis Freestyle Solo Review

    by

    I’ve been looking for the right keyboard for a while, most recently reviewing the Microsoft Arc. The Arc was a decent keyboard but left my wrists a bit sore still and the keys on the outer edges were lacking. My latest keyboard is the Kinesis Freestyle Solo for Mac. Update August 7, 2014: This review…

  • Do You Let Your Tech Get in the Way?

    by

    I recently [shared some images taken on the bike][bikeimage], and while I enjoy taking pictures of the stuff I get to see, I’m out there to really experience it too. Even the morning that post went up I was riding and watched the sun rise over the local mountains and I thought about taking a…

  • The Usefulness of Blog Archives?

    by

    I’m working on a rebuild of this site because it’s needed it for at least 2 years, and it’s a pretty dang terrible design. One of the main things I’m thinking about is the utility of the tags and categories on the site. Looking through Google Analytics, few people look around either the categories or…

  • Creative Cloud, I’m not Buying

    I may be a bit late to the party, but Adobe has announced [Creative Cloud][adobecloud] pricing. If you didn’t know already, I’m [not][adobe1] a [big fan][adobe2] of Adobe.

  • What I Want in a Cycling Jersey

    Riding this weekend I dropped my wallet. I was lucky and a kind stranger tracked me down online and returned it with everything intact, but it got me to thinking about some things I miss with my cycling jersey. ### A ‘Safe’ Pocket I think that jersey’s for most riders should have a smallish pocket…

  • Live Your Eulogy

    by

    My friend Eric recently wrote about his quest to get the right fit in his life. It seems to me that he is trying to sort out the things that are most important to him and then set about doing them, and in theory, getting someone to pay him for it. Darryl at Loving the…

    Your Company Has a Culture

    by

    Your company has a culture, and it may not be the one you want. I’ve worked at a number of businesses and the fact is that the ‘culture’ that management thought they were fostering and the culture that the employees thought was there, were two entirely different things. A company’s core values are what define…
