Story

every life is epic
Introduction
I am an award-winning journalist, writer, and real Maniac, being born and raised in Caribou, Maine. But I currently live with my immediate family far from home, in San Diego, Calif.


I am an experienced analyst, consultant, editor, journalist, and storyteller. My communication skills are broader than just the written word. I have appeared on CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, NPR, PBS, and other radio or TV networks or programs discussing technology and its related cultural and business impact.

During the second decade of the Millennium, my main worklife focus is producing original content, which could make you the star. I contend that "every life is epic", and through storytelling show by how much.

I am available for editing, writing, or speaking gigs and can be reached by Gmail, or you can private Circle or Hangout. Be warned, if you want to hire me: My investigative storytelling style is provocative. I want people to think about things from different viewpoints.

They say you can judge someone by their playlist or what they read. I subscribes to:

  • Economist, Nature, and Rolling Stone on iPad
  • New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post on web and digital devices 
  • Entertainment Weekly, Mother JonesNew Yorker, and Vanity Fair in print, on web, and digital devices

But often the most valuable content comes not from paid professionals but people posting to social networks (hehe, Google+), Medium, and blogs.
Bragging rights
Got my driver's license at 25, because I biked (or walked) everywhere.

Sometimes simple makes the best photographic art. Composition is excellent. The eye draws to ultra-crisp “Power”—the self-title—then up the tilt-way plugs. Color and contrast are superb. Ricardo Camacho captured the image on March 6, 2012, using Canon EOS…

Oh my! Tested and confirmed by the BetaNews team.

This is so embarrassing for Apple. For us, iPhone users, it spells trouble.

#apple   #iphone   #imessage   #security  
It does not take sophisticated software or advanced knowledge of iOS to cause an iPhone and its Messages app to crash, as a simple text message can do the job just fine. As an iPhone 6 Plus user, this is the first time I am feeling vulnerable for using an Apple smartphone.

The app she needs just aren't there.

#windowsphone   #lumiaicon  
Mobile apps do matter, otherwise my tech-savvy sister wouldn't be giving up one of the best smartphones on the market: Nokia Lumia Icon (which is the 930 internationally). She bought the handset from me last summer and from Day 1 praised the utility and usability of the user interface, attractive but sturdy design, and amazing hardware capabilities, which include the quality of images produced by the camera.

Memorial Day arrives here in the United States—and a little earlier in May than is typical. What better way to celebrate than with self-titled “Flower-Sunrise”, which Tony Heyward captured on April 19, 2013, using the Pentax K-30. Vitals: f/22, ISO 800,…

Sometimes the best photographs capture the shooter’s mood. On March 18, 2009, Jano De Cesare felt uninspired about his camera work “maybe because I had little time to shoot, maybe because I just chose bad subjects in bad conditions”. But “I obliged myself…

Google Music temps Me from Tidal

My love affair with Tidal nears dissolution. The second month’s renewal is five days away, and divorce is nearly certain now. Mid-month I asked: “What Good is Tidal HiFi if Content won’t Play?” Matters are better and worse since. I no longer have the song…

If you asked reasons for today’s selection, several would stand out. Top of list: Exhaustion that makes me identify with the subject. That’s how I feel after searching the photostream of Oliver Degabriele; I could choose any and most every image for the…

I wouldn’t have guessed today’s selection, when first opening the photostream of Dave Wilson. Self-titled “V8 Supercars Pitstop” wins the Day for color, composition, and drama. You can feel the intensity and drive (no pun intended) of the men. He…

By the time I decided I wanted a Microsoft watch they stopped making them. They were ahead of their time, but like today's crop of Android Wear devices, they were too large.

M daughter’s cat Cali assumes a rather unusual position in the custom-made tree we paid just $60 for. I love supporting a home business. I snapped using Nexus 6, rather than pull out the Fuji X100T. I worried she might move, missing the moment. It’s rare…
