Mississippi, The Last Shall Be First
Scripture refers to how the last shall be first. I love how God likes to turn what we think is right or the way things should be on its head. Jesus from His coming, birth, ministry, and death was the personification of this. So, it doesn't surprise me when ...

My Icy Valentine
Valentine's Day 2015 was a bit different than most. It was the first Valentine's Day that I recall being apart from my Valentine, Kim. Georgia has had a stomach bug for a few days, so she wasn't feeling up to a daddy-daughter date. And to cap it off, Georgi...

Cannot express how much I want this plan to backfire on the President.
Just days after the Obama White House accused House Speaker John Boehner of “breaking protocol” by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress, a team of up to five Obama campaign operatives has reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections.

Well, I just wouldn't expect this to be worth reporting by mainstream outlets. Doesn't make it any less reality.

Crossing Off A 2014 Goal
On Friday, December 19, I accomplished something that before this year would've seemed unlikely: walking a half-marathon. To be clear, I didn't participate in an actual marathon. But I did walk 13.1 miles. Perspective on this begins in 2012 when Kim and a f...

And what was amazing to find out yesterday is that WoW Insider writers are starting a new effort (http://blizzardwatch.com) as our Massively's writers (https://twitter.com/massivelyop). While Joystiq  will live on in Engadget (http://www.engadget.com/gaming/) who knows what the TUAW peeps have up their sleeves :)

See You Around, Old Friends
There's been a string of emotionally tough weeks. Perhaps you can understand what it feels like to have products you've worked on for nearly 7 years kicked to the curb. The feeling can't be far from what a shipbuilder feels seeing a vessel they spent months...

Story
Tagline
Most days are filled with slaying the interwebs, code slinging, helping developers across the "project highway," and ridiculous amounts of frivolity.
Introduction
Rick has been involved with media since he was in 9th grade. Then, he began working in radio and learning everything there was to know about radio broadcasting. He worked on-air, in production, went on sales calls, and even got his hands dirty with engineering. 

After 10 years in radio, Rick went into TV for 10 years working in Production, Marketing, and Online. Receiving a Southeast Regional Emmy for his work on "Unexplained: Haunts" is a cherished highlight.

Since 2008, Rick's focus has been in program management at AOL. His work with AOL Tech's channels of Engadget, TUAW, Joystiq, Massively, and WoW Insider provides new projects daily and the occasional opportunity to flex is code monkey skills.

When it comes to home remodeling, knowing who to choose can be difficult. After all, there's a lot of choices. Choosing David to repair the exterior of my home (weathered rake board and several aged portions of front and rear of home) was a wonderful investment. With David you'll always receive clear communication, honesty, integrity, and professional work. Not only was I satisfied with the work when it was completed but I knew it would last for a long while. When it's time to replace my windows and switch out my wooden deck for pavers, I'll be calling Bolder Remodeling, again.
