Take a moment and indulge me. I want you to imagine a scenario. Astronomers mapping the sky find a moving object, incredibly faint, in their data. It’s moving slowly, so it’s very far away and probably small. Their best guess is that it’s an asteroid about a kilometer across. Because...

If you have all access, I recommend this album. If you have Spotify or apple music, I still regimens it, I just don't have the link.

Happy Birthday Google+

They say you're a ghost town, but for those of us that use the service, we know this isn't the case.

Here's the problem. People joined G+ thinking it would be "just like Facebook" when it's not.  Facebook is where you connect with RL friend's and family. It's where you share jokes with college friends about.

When people joined G+ they tried finding all of these people, people that they didn't have the service yet. So they sat in empty feeds waiting for their friends to add them, or for some celebrities to entertain them.  

That's not Google+

Google+ Is An Identity Network

This service is built to be the backbone of other Google services, and, just like their ad network, it groups users based on similar tastes. And that's where this platform is amazing. 

I called Google+ a "Digital Pub" way back when, and I think the name still fits.  When you go in, you find a table full of people talking about something you love and you join in. I don't interact with anyone I know "IRL' on Google+, with the exception of two of my brother's who signed up because I bugged them to.

Instead, I get to have hangouts with people like +Russell Holly  where we got to laugh about how wonky video hangout chat was back in the day.

I get to trade jokes with +John Lieske  and then finally meet him in person and realize he's a pretty ok guy.

I get to interact with celebrities like +Jeri Ryan and +Wil Wheaton and not about their movies, but when they have questions about their phones, or them talking about the amazing animals they spotted in their back yard.

It's about trading jokes about hollywood blockbusters with people from the middle of nowhere Idaho and Google engineers in mountainview. 

It's about connecting with people like the wonderful +Shinae Choi Robinson and talking about food and awesome pictures. Or finding someone like +Rachel Elizabeth who's as nerdy as you are about tech, and has a great taste in music to boot.

Google+ is a place to meet people who are interested in what you find interesting. It's a place to reach out and talk to people about things they post that you find coal, and to watch as they do the same. It's not somewhere to move physical connections into the digital realm, but one where you form the digital friendship first and then it moves into something offline. 

Google+ is not Facebook, it will never be Facebook, and that's why I love it.

Happy Birthday +Google+

This was my next door neighbor growing up. His sister and I were good friends and I remember playing in our back yards, or at the cattails in the park with both of them. We'd run around with our water guns, or make up crazy stories to keep ourselves busy during the summer.

Their family moved away, and I lost touch with him. When his sister posted that he was at the hospital I couldn't really believe it and then I heard that he passed.. at 26 of a heart attack.

I know most of you won't know him, but if you want to donate, I know his family would appreciate it. 
My brother David died two weeks ago of a sudden heart attack, while jogging in Beltzville State Park. He was only 26 years old. I am raising money to buy a memorial bench in his name, that can be donated to the park where he died, and enjoyed by the many people who knew and loved him during his...

But tonight we're sonnets
Poets of circumstance
For,
Every moment a memory
Every second a song
Writing words woven
To treble and clef
A tempered rhythm
Set in timeless rhyme

That time I took a picture with the galaxy nexus and felt like a professional because it actually looked nice.

Sometimes you just need to do something yourself.

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” 
― Louise Erdrich

Story
Tagline
Tech Enthusiast, Part-Time Writer, Coffee Professional
Introduction
I'm a Coffee Drinker, Book Reader, and Tech Enthusiast 20Something trying to find my place in a world where only one of the three is popular.

I'm the oldest of three brother's and a native of that place we call the "Philly Burbs" because it's too annoying to take the time explaining which of the 5000 townships my house is actually in.

I'm an Alumnus of Indiana Wesleyan University where I received my Bachelor's in Marketing, a minor in Writing, and an appreciation for changing scenery since Indiana was so flat.

I like talking with people, finding out what they enjoy and what motivates them to do the things they do.  People think I'm a quiet person, but that's only because I don't really like crowds.  I'll strike up a conversation with practically anyone if given the chance, and I love getting to know new people.

I'm still trying to find those opportunities that will let me fill out this section with amazing stories, but I hope to be forced to edit this for those stories rather soon.  

Possible Circles to put me in:
-Tech
-Coffee Lovers
-Gamer
-Political
-Android
-Ingress


The views expressed here are solely my own and not meant to be representative of my employer, my family, my country, fellow tech geeks, or other people who share my name.

I guess I've been luckier than some of the other reviewers here. I work in Old City and so i walk past Four Father's nearly every day. I've had lunch there a few times. Service is not "speedy," but there was only one time where I felt rushed to finish my meal during my normal hour lunch. The food I received was consistently delicious, and they seem to keep their taps well stocked with a rotating selection of beer.
