I'm a person who carries a lot of technology on me. I've been dubbed a cyborg from some friends since I normally carry 5 gadgets with me at all times. I have a smartwatch, phone, tablet, laptop, and 3DS when traveling and when I'm stationed at home I can have 6 screens pointed in my direction. Every once in a while a man needs a detox and starting tomorrow I'm taking a two day break from all technology. No screens, no internet, no tv, only an analogue clock to keep track of time. This is going to be an interesting weekend.

While this post is similar to the one I put on Facebook I'll make sure to add a lot more about my experiences here since I can always add more. Until then, I'll see the world in on Monday.

I'm honestly sharing this all over the place but that's just because this is amazing.

#ifIhadglass  I would have an app called "Where am I?". It would locate where I am and give me information about the place such as interesting facts. It would also present data about elevation and location and information about the area.

Went to the +The White House for a special tour and to watch "To Kill a Mocking Bird" where I got the opportunity to see +Barack Obama when he introduced the movie. Sadly I wasn't able to get any crystal clear pictures of him while I was there but it was a wonderful experience nonetheless. Thanks to everyone who made this a possibility!

It's weird seeing your favorite sites shut down, things you thought were permanent slowly decay. Things that you hold dear disappear as without say, without word and you can't ask why or how because it's gone. 

Starting August 10, 2007 I read nearly 300,000 items on #Google #Reader. Every day I logged on and went to this site to read literally all the tech news I could find on my favorite sites. It was the site I visited every day and read nearly every article. I will never forget Google Reader, it shaped me to be the techie I am and it has made me a better man because of that.

Another rare cross post from Facebook but again, it's an issue of importance:


sigh I guess I should make my stance clear on some on this issue too: There are two issues I need to address: The case itself and the underlying issues.
1. The kid didn't deserve it. I heard something today that made it seem like...it was ok to shoot him, his past doesn't have anything to do with this case and it is sick and wrong to hear otherwise...not everyone was as lucky as most of us to live such a lucky city as Arlington. I was offended and hurt beyond what I thought was possible when I heard what was said. Especially when you get all your information from one source...the guy who did it.

2. I posted a quote on Facebook a while earlier while the case was still hot; I'll repeat it again: "But as a black male, you must go above and beyond to show strangers what type of person you really are." - Jessie Washington. Unless you really are a minority, it's hard to really get a concept of what he means but the best way to explain it is this. People judge you based on your skin color, sure it's not everyone but people make assumptions of who you are before they actually get to know you. The best example was when my drivers ed instructor was extremely surprised that I was in the IB Diploma and had over a 3.0 GPA. While for a certain while you can ignore the assumptions for a while you have cases like these where ignoring it can get you into situations like these. It hurts on some days to really wonder "Do people actually know who I am?" and you get to a certain point where you really do ask yourself "...is being black a bad thing?". It hurts to be profiled into a stereotype that doesn't even begin to describe who you are and what you do. It hurts to see the consequences of what happens when you want to ignore it. And overall....it hurts to realize that they are people in this world that say he was at fault as much as Zimmerman was.

Sorry for the long post but for once, I think it's ok if I get this all out.

A wonderful Asian restaurant with some fantastic food. I had the Mango Chicken and Shrimp Tempura and loved every single bite of it. This is a fantastic place in Easton and I highly recommend it for any people who want great food at a good price.
