I'm more than a mechanic and you'll see that if you stick around long enough to learn.

Day 4 riding my bike in to work. Barely beat the rain the morning but still made good time. Can't wait to have a propper commuting bike to take the place of a high rolling resistance mountain bike. All in due time.

Help make it happen for Strum It Forward.  This is our first fundraiser and my first venture into the world of non-profits.  Please show your support by sharing this event, supporting it through Indiegogo, or volunteering some time to help us meet our goal.

My sincere thanks go out to the Google+ community, I've seen what can happen when a ripple creates waves.

Still working on organizing the non profit but things are getting easier and I actually feel like progress is being made.

I'm starting a non-profit to build a scholarship fund for local music education.  Along the way I plan to keep a blog as a means of maintaining sanity and to allow anyone to chime in and offer advice.  (Or just laugh at my experience, either way.)

Preparing to sell off a bunch of recent comic books to generate the funds needed start a non profit. I'll post links as I set up the auctions. #crowdfunding #nonprofit #startup #comics

I'm looking for a decent fundraising website with a good reputation and low processing fees.  Any ideas??

My current project doesn't fit within the Kickstarter guidelines or I'd use them.  I'm trying to start a scholarship program for music education outside of the very limited public school curriculum.

Here's an article I wrote for ReadComicBooks.net as the first installment of an ongoing news section.  Feel free to critique, or respond.

I know MOOC's are under a lot of fire and I've heard several arguments both for and against them.  Some say they are a great way to reach people without access to a proper University and I've also heard that they are a meaningless waste of time.  To each their own.

I have completed 4 courses using +Coursera and I know that I am better for it.  My outlook has changed and I have a new perspective on what I read and hear because of Model Thinking from University of Michigan.  I have also successfully implemented some elements of Gamification that I learned from Professor Kevin Werbach at University of Pennsylvania.  I could list specific examples of how what I've learned has already helped in my day to day but it would be rather repetitive.  

It's fine with me to not have actually sat in a classroom or paid several hundred dollars per credit hour for standardized credits.  I'm better for having taken the time to learn and use the material offered.

Just something to think about from +Linda Hedrick when shopping for services.
