They say that Friday isn’t necessarily a good day to start an Indiegogo campaign. But Friday was the first of May and we wanted our fundraiser to be a May thing, so we started it late Friday afternoon anyway. Not long after it went live, Larry Cafiero…

This is a good way to help people out. Loans are normally paid back. I am reinvesting what is paid back at this time.

Is it Tuesday already? I don’t think most of you know just how much I enjoy talking to you every Tuesday. See…I don’t think of this as an article. This is my way of starting a conversation with my friends. There are times when I write a particular…

Maybe you're not sure that "whatever you want to pay" is cheap enough. (It is.) Or maybe you're not sure the books are any good. (They are.)

After that, it will be gone forever.

So stop waffling and go get it now. Because "the rest of your life" is too long for regrets. http://storybundle.com/indie

Linux accessibility is good, but could be much better. Learn about many of the free accessibility tools Linux and open source solutions offer, and find out about the areas that need improvement.

Timely and correct.
 
Wherein I disregard all prudent advice about being an author on the internet and talk about controversial stuff anyway.

These have been some of my observations after more than a week at the retirement/assisted living community where my father lives.
"House of the Strange Wheelchair" photo by AndreasS, CC BY 2.0 This is not a post about writing. Thought I should get that out of the way first. So much of the advice for authors includes recommendations not to speak on poli...
