Tech

After being talked into the field of Computer Science by a tour guide at Midland Luthern College in Fremont, Nebraska, I joined the program at Simpson College in 1998 and got my first computer ever that Christmas.  Though I got a late start, I dove in head first.  I received my Bachelors in Computer Science […]

Google CR-48 Cromebook

I got home the other day and saw a package on the front step.  I didn't think much of it, I kinda have an addiction to ordering stuff off of Amazon.  Then my wife said, "What'd you get now?".  I got to thinking, I haven't ordered anything in a few days, I wonder what it […]

Big Omaha 2011

I finally got the opportunity to attend the 3rd annual Big Omaha event, hosted at Kaneko by Silicon Prairie News and many other sponsors.  The 2 day, 3 night event hosts many speakers of all areas of technology and entrepreneurship.  Some notable ones this year are Aneesh Chopra, Mark Ecko, and Gary Vaynerchuk.  Of course there […]

So today at work I faced one of the things you hope you never have, but you are sure you will some day when you least expect it.  For example when your supervisor (IS Director) is supposed to be somewhere in north-central Iowa climbing a hill on a 21 speed, road bike.  This morning when […]

Videos of @goldengage

Gage is our beloved golden retriever that we got on August 8th, 2008 (08-08-08), which was exactly a year before our wedding date.  Many of you have heard this story, but the reason we got him was as a gift of our engagement.  That’s a whole different video, but I told Amy that we could […]

Hands on with the iPad

I had the chance to play around with an iPad recently.  The chairman of our company got one and liked it so much, he asked me to set one up for his wife.  It felt like Christmas opening an $800+ Apple package before anyone else got their hands on it, since I don’t get the […]
