Each year, from 2010-2012 I made 5, 5 year predictions. The first set of those15 predictions are coming to an end next year. How did I do at predicting the future? I think I did pretty good, what do you think? http://tacanderson.com/predictions 
To quote Master Yoda, ”Careful you must be when sensing the future.” ”Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.” I’ve created this page to track all of the 5 Year Trend Predictions I’ve made....

There were several times I didn't think I'd make it to the two year mark, but I'm glad I did.  
I’ve changed jobs and careers a lot. So even an anniversary like two years is a pretty big deal for me. This month I hit my two year mark at Amazon. It’s been the most interesting two year period of...

I had a phone screen with them. Didn’t go so well. Hard to convey 16 years of web development experience over a toy programming exercise. Probably even harder in another 16 years.

My interview with +Marcus Nelson  is finally live. Great conversation about being an entrepreneur vs an employee.
Why would an entrepreneur take a job at a large corporation? Isn't that selling out? Giving up? Calling it quits? Hardly. This post is not advocating that entrepreneurs stop being entrepreneurs. Ju...

I'm on the early/beta release track (not the experimental/alpha). I haven't seen that behavior yet. I use both Mac OS X 10.9.5 and ChromeOS.
