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 […]

Tech: Twitter

There’s so much buzz going on about Twitter right now, especially with Ashton Kutcher beating CNN to 1,000,000 followers.

Nook e

I don’t really forget about this blog, I just have a hard time updating any of them.  Posterous has really made it more convenient by adding posts by email.  I use to tweet once in a while from my phone, but once I could post pictures and short notes to my blog with an email from my […]
