My latest column on Forbes.com
It’s a mistake to think that STEM is the only route to a rewarding and well-paying career in tech or business, whether with a web startup or a huge multinational. Students need both STEM and liberal arts courses.

My thoughts on the President's first Google+ Hangout
Online get-together with a handful of citizens was a step forward for open government, but participation was limited and key questions were skipped.

Hi Dave (assistant for Dave Hurd)

Please put me in contact with your Java executive to report AND RESOLVE my complaint about "bloatware" being included in Java software from the www.java.com website.

I started with a pristine new hard drive this morning and now it's filled with CRAP.  At least 1/2 dozen programs forced their way onto my PC along with the Java software.  This is simply uninvited trespassing of the worse kind for a company like Oracle.  I'm shocked & surprised  

My only response of any consequence, is to continue to call all Oracle executives and if unanswered, to escalate and organize a negative publicity campaign.  I just retired so I've got idle time on my hands just looking for mischief, according to my wife.  Seriously, I want this crap out of my computer by a responsible party at Oracle or Java, who can return my PC to it's pristine state.  ... because this is a "CUSTOMER  OBSESSED" with your MARKETING.
