My wife's book is now available on Amazon: http://goo.gl/lDtjzH

In 1992, nine-year-old Katie Beers was kidnapped by a family friend and locked in an underground box for 17 days. Katie has now come forward to tell the story that created a national media storm as reporters uncovered the truth about her pre-kidnapping life of neglect and sexual abuse and the details of her rescue. She shares how this experience and the recent death of her kidnapper, John Esposito, has affected her life. Despite the horrible reality of Katie's days of being chained in darkness, the kidnapping was, in fact, the climactic end of a tragic childhood and the beginning of a new life.

Katie has been traveling around the country the past two years keynote speaking at various child advocacy and victim events, motivational and inspirational speaking venues, and of course various media outlets.

My wife's book, Buried Memories, is a NYT Bestseller. This is the new and updated version that includes new chapters such as life after Buried Memories.

For those that do not know, part of the reason for the new book is sadly because the original book publisher completely screwed her and I over, stealing thousands of dollars from us (essentially victimizing a victim, awesome huh?). The book has been released with a reputable publisher and we couldn't be happier with the change.

Thank you so much for the share and the kind words +Virginia Poltrack. Katie and I appreciate it :)
So I really struggled with how to word this post. Let me start by linking to this book- http://www.amazon.com/dp/0985247843/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=katiebeers-20

I met +Katie Beers​​ before I knew about this book, about her story. I liked her immediately, and in fact, just thought she was a GREAT person. The kind of friend that when you meet them for the first time, you walk away thinking to yourself, "I really adore that person, I'm so happy to have met them!"

Then I learned a bit about this story, and ordered the book. And I was floored. To say she is an amazing person and survivor is an understatement. Basically, I was completely blown away and have a new found respect for someone I already held in really high regard. Katie, thank you for sharing this. You're amazing, and deserve every happiness. I'm really proud to call you a friend 💗

One thing I forgot to mention in my excitement is that MeWe is developing a tool that's going to be released in a few days that will allow you to import all of your public Google+ posts and collections! That's truly amazing. No one wants to lose 8 years of content.

Well Android fans, it's been real. I haven't posted much over the past year since Google+ was announced to be shutting down. This was a big 'oof' or a kick in the gut, for me. Google+ was once so ingrained into my daily routine and such a big part of my life that I just didn't want to continue to invest in social to watch it all go down the drains some day.

Well, I just spent the past hour or so on the phone with the CEO of privacy focused social network, MeWe. He has me convinced that they're doing social correctly and that they're going to do big things in this space. I'll be formally writing about all of this very soon.

In the meantime, I encourage all of you to join me over there.

Nevermore Esports League was founded under many principles beyond being a team based learning environment. One of the original aspirations for Nevermore was to bring sponsor backed tournament play to amateur gamers. Over the past 6 months Nevermore has been working towards this goal and today Nevermore is pleased to announce that the Overwatch Season One Tournament will be sponsored in-part by Guilded.

Thanks ASUS for solving the world's battery problems. I wouldn't have expected anything less from ROG.
