You might find some of this interesting: Here is the reading list published by the Army Chief of Staff. Note earlier years contain some different material, worth browsing. I’ve always liked org’s that had reading lists (though have to be wary of flavor of the year books). I marked a few from the list to […]Read more "Stuff to Read"
I haven’t posted much on books lately, here are two that are different: Inside the Food Network. Definitely some gossip, but also a look at how businesses evolve and how the people that made them in the beginning couldn’t keep up with that evolution. A common problem/pattern. Bobby Flay seems to have been the most […]Read more "Recent Reading: The Food Network, And The White House!"
The Year Without Pants by Scott Berkun is about a former manager/now speaker and writer going to work for WordPress for a year. It was a must-read for me; I’m a fan of the authors writing as well as WordPress. It’s supposed to about the future of work and maybe it is, but I think […]Read more "Review: The Year Without Pants"
Recently I installed the Android version of the Overdrive Media Console on my Nexus 7. It’s a free app. Install via the Play store and it’s ready to go in a minute.

One of the things I noticed is that I had some crawl errors (URL’s that generated a page not found error). Here is the first part of that information […]Read more "Fixing Bad Links Found Using Google Webmaster Tools"

I still have a preference for printed books, based mostly on a lifetime of reading a printed book a week, but also because I’ve always been a […]Read more "Kindle vs Library"

I like reading and while I read more on an e-reader than I used to, I still prefer the printed kind and with that comes some old fashioned thoughts about how books are treated. I’m on the flight to Seattle as I write this and I glanced across the aisle to see a man circling […]Read more "Marking Up Books"
