I just put out my new book, Project Management for the Non-Project Manager.  Every company should be running a project whether they have a PMO or not.  Sometimes they don't have the know-how, but this is the definitive toolbox for picking solid projects that have a major and positive influence on the financials of a company.

This is really all you need to pick solid projects and run them through to completion successfully!

The first Ubuntu-powered smartphones go on sale shortly, featuring a user interface with a card-based system rather than grids of apps.

A pocket sized +LinuxMint box?  Nice!
Happy New Year everyone! We're starting 2015 with exciting news. Linux Mint and CompuLab will be announcing a brand new unit called “MintBox Mini” in Q2 2015. With a volume of 0.22l and a thickness of 0.95″ the MintBox Mini is small enough to be pocketable. In terms of volume it's 3 times ...

The malware is spread by spam and compromised/fishy sites. Don't open weird emails from people you don't know and don't visit lanky sites and you should be good.

Imagine that.

This is just one more reason I can't wait for Lollipop! Google Maps is already the best; faster, more accurate, and easier to use (in my opinion), and it just keeps getting better.
Google rolls out a revamped Google Maps in time for Android Lollipop. Now, users get nicer Maps with Material Design and deeper integration with OpenTable and Uber.

Yup, there's nothing like homemade ramen. It takes about 7 hours to simmer down the broth, but it's so worth it.

I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the Alien movies.  I even enjoyed Aliens 3 and 4, although 3 I could have done without.  This new Alien movie by Bloomkamp seems just the ticket to me. 
Director Neill Blomkamp has revealed his new "Alien" movie will overwrite "Alien 3" and "Alien: Resurrection".

Seeing an Ubuntu phone finally going on sale would have excited me a while ago, but I just got a brand new G3 and I'm locked in for a while.  Now I see this and think to myself, "Wow, it took so interminably long..."

Anyway, good luck to Ubuntu and their new phone.  The scopes look pretty cool.  +Ubuntu Phones 
It's hard to believe that in just a few short weeks the first Ubuntu Phone goes on sale, manufactured by Bq Readers. It feels like it's taken ages to get to this point, but at the same time no time at all.

Wearable Tech + Music?  Heck yeah, this looks pretty cool to me!

Maybe I can finally make something resembling music.

Musician Imogen Heap is using high-tech music gloves to translate simple gestures in to mind-bending music.

So, a Facebook killer. Why haven't they tried Google+?
With more users becoming disgruntled with Facebook's policies, Ello, a new ad-free social network that touts its privacy, transparency, and simplicity, could become a legitimate competitor to the social media giant.

I'm an operations guy, have been for years. I've managed production for the ignition assembly used in Honda Accords, Civics and CRVs and I've managed production for a host of other automotive products including springs and wire harnesses used on Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Mitsubishi, Ford, and other auto makers' cars. I enjoy sailing, reading, fitness, and sports of all kinds. I'm no stranger to adversity; it's not easy being a Packers fan in Chicago!
Bragging rights
Almost 2/3 of drivers on the road with model years between 2003 and 2008 have a part or product in their car for which I was responsible for production.
