Congratulations to my friend +Courtney Takabayashi for publishing her first book! Support a new author and enjoy a good read!

Excited to see friend and writer +Courtney Takabayashi on G+. Feeling even luckier that I get to have a peek at a draft of one of her works. Thanks Court!

Just too many intellectual property traps anymore...
How your business could get sued for using Pinterest

Gosh, eye-opening article, citing Pinterest's TOS regards the selling of images.


I just checked Facebook's TOS as they are similar -- but Facebook says "use" not "sell."

Thoughts? Any lawyers in the G+ house?!

Thoroughly enjoyable article from +Alex Knapp about the leadership mistakes of the Galactic Empire.

As much as I admire Apple, I have to say their IP practices leave a sour taste. I had to chuckle at the picture from this post.
thank you Apple for proving again, what you became! A company that's constantly stealing generic procedures and methods from other coders and designers, to turn them into a patent and use them against your competitors.

Cupertino doesn't care about the customers. They don't care about revolutionizing the educational market and they especially don't care about how their products are made!

It's all about the profit and the greed of the shareholders. "Think different" my ass, it's embarrassing to know how much money i've transfered into your system for the last 25 years. It's embarrassing that i actually thought you were different and cool!

You Apple turned into the superlative of an evil, capitalistic corporation and your trivial patents like slide to unlock, words suggestion, multiple source search and turning data into links, are revealing your DNA.

It's not about the digital revolution, it's about controlling markets and fighting competition!

Early morning OC-6 paddle with Hui Nalu. We went out looking for whales, but no luck. Lots of fetch, bounced around, and plenty of bailing the canoe. I sat #1 seat so I got the best ride of all. +Steven Mandzik I will be sure to let you know the first time we hear the songs through the canoe hull this year.

Sharing simply because owls are my favorite bird of prey.
If you like Snowy Owls you will love this little 3 minute film about them.
