In one ear and out the other? That may be the fate of your podcasts if you don't take steps to retain what you hear.

+Dave Delaney They are heatsinks. They are usually not necessary unless you are overclocking your Pi. They can be useful though if you are setting up a cluster.

Still shopping for your kids for the holidays? Read this...
If you have ever played Dungeons and Dragons, you know how annoying the process is of creating a new character. You have to roll the dice countless times in order to determine the level of your player's characteristics. I used to play D&D all of the time when I was a kid. My first computer was a TRS-80, the one by Tandy from Radio Shack with the cassette tape recorder for a disk drive. I've never considered myself a programmer, but I ...

+Amber Case inspired this post about Calm Technology. www.davedelaney.me/blog/calm-technology-amber-case
Amber Case is a cyborg anthropologist, author and speaker. A few months ago, she spoke at Hubspot's Inbound Conference about Calm Technology. Calm is a term coined by Mark Weiser. The concept is for technology to improve our lives, but to step out of the way. Amber used electricity as an example of Calm. It exists all around us, but we only really notice it when it isn't working. It's time to think about Calm, since we live in an er...

A little Thanksgiving challenge. 
I picked up my kids from school the other day and decided to play one of my favorite artists, Taj Mahal, as we drove home. Taj does a beautiful cover of William Bell's classic, "You Don't Miss Your Water ('Til Your Well Runs Dry"). The song was nearly over when my nine-year old son asked me ...

Thanks to +Chris Brogan for the recommendation of this book. Good thoughts on how we approach the classic question, "What do you do?"
There is a school of thought that asking a person what they do for a living is a bad icebreaker. I discovered this recently, while I was at a conference speaking with a friend. He explained that he was tired of the question, because there is so much more about a person than what they do for a living. I pondered the thought and I agreed at the time. However, I read a book recently (hat tip to Chris Brogan) that changed my thinking on w...

When I worked at that gas station, I had a regular customer who always cracked me up. He was an elderly man with a thick British accent. Each week when he came in, I would ask him how he was. He would stare up into my eyes from his seat and give me a sly smile. "Do you have an hour? I am going to need about an hour or more to tell you how I am. It's a complicated question with a complex answer. I would love to tell you all how I am...

Part of the purpose of this blog is for me to share things I have learned about being an entrepreneur who works alone. While I’m not a huge fan of the word “solopreneur”, it does encapsulate my work life. I also work from home, so if you do too, this post is for you. Six tips for people who work from home - people like you. 1. Your couch is dangerous. Ella was sick, she was home from school with me for a few days recently. She sp...

This one is for friends who work in customer service, or if you're dealing with a jerk.
When I was fifteen, I worked for a full-service gas station and auto repair shop. I know what you're thinking (unless you're in New Jersey or Oregon), "what is a full-service gas station?" Yes, there was a time when a smiling gas jockey would greet your car and fill up your gas. You didn't even need to step out of your vehicle. Most customers were nice, many even tipped me. One day, a guy in his early 30s pulled up in a Porche with m...

I'm giving up. We all feel like this some days. No business runs perfectly all of the time. We all have the down periods - I have definitely had some. I remember working at a restaurant years ago. As a server, I relied on the tips I would earn from my customers. No customers meant no tips. Every so often, for no apparent reason, we would have a dead lunch or dinner. It sucked, but I did't quit. The next shift was always better. ...

How to improve your life with improv. 
As you know, I wrote a short ebook recently entitled Improve with Improv. The book was inspired by my presentation from Hubspot's Inbound conference last month. The following is the video of my #Inbound15 Bold presentation. 3 Key Ways Improv Will Help You In this presentation (and my ebook), I share the three key things I learned from studying improv with Second City, and performing it regularly when I lived in Ireland. They are: ...

We happened upon Jimmy T's Place when we were visiting with our kids. My wife and I are suckers for amazing diners and Jimmy T's doesn't disappoint. The couple who run it were incredibly kind. They even made something for my kids that wasn't on their menu, because the kids had requested it. That is great service. I love that the restaurant has been in the cook's family for 100 years. Great food, wonderful people, lovely neighborhood just down the road from the Capitol.
