Throwback Thursday: Musings on Internet Privacy
  My IT guy just told me to delete a folder I had called "personal music - move to Google". It was really old and I had forgotten all about it but it was hogging up 3GB. Well, that led me down memory lane to all kinds of crazy files I have here at work. One...

Endings and Beginnings
The last few months of 2013 were filled with some very intense endings for me. My mother was in the final stages of her terminal illness, and my grant-funded project at work, something I worked on for 13 years, was coming to an end. Generally, transitions l...

That's the real deal, +Jeremy Foreman. And this is how I know for a fact that you can't "make" a video go "viral". You can support it a bit once it's gotten popular, and I have an understanding of some of the elements that went into making this popular, but there is no one formula for having this happen.

Two Cars: What if We Could Empathize With Earth?
Today on my way to work, I was missing my cushy car. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I drive our old Toyota truck. It's a manual, with manual steering and no radio. As I was missing our comfortable new automatic Camry and the radio, I thought: What if driving our...

People, Let Me Tell You About My Best Friend
My mom and I used to really love to watch The Courtship of Eddie's Father. The song was the best. Somehow that song popped into my head recently, and it's making me face the reality that I did lose my best friend. My mom died November 15, 2013 and I'm still...

Hey friends, I'm helping NTEN, my all-time favorite organization, with their 2013 Challenge. What does this mean? 

NTEN has helped me grow professionally and network with an amazing group of peers doing all sorts of nonprofit goodness in a myriad of settings.

If you care about me you'll donate to this challenge. If you care about stuff like, you know, human rights, cute animals, clean water, ending homelessness, etc. -- all that tree-hugging stuff -- you'll donate to this challenge. Because NTEN helps nonprofit organizations strengthen their staff, increase their outreach, and meet their missions.

So, long story short, this is kind of my Holiday Season charity this year. Please give to NTEN instead of giving me a gift. Thanks!

I've been approached by a handful of MCNs regarding Wade's +YouTube channel. No idea if there is really any benefit to joining one. Sounds a little fraught with pitfalls and loopholes. OTOH, I don't really have time to efficiently promote his channel.
