My name is Paul Spoerry ( and I was fortunate enough to have a father who recognized that a computer would be a “good investment for his children’s future”. To his dismay the investment he spent a good deal of the family savings on wouldn't work when he brought it home. I begged him to let me play with it, but he always brushed me off (would you let a little kid play with a $5,000+ piece of hardware you’re struggling to make work?). After having several people out to diagnose the machine, each unable to fix it, he finally turned to me and said “well, you can’t break it any more than it already is” and walked out of the room frustrated. When he returned a few hours later the room was littered with components… I had his “investment” in pieces. I’m surprised I survived that day because I saw his face turn several shades of red in rapid succession. He walked out of the room… I’m not sure if it was because he was going to cry, or because he feared he might kill me after seeing what I’d just done. Several hours later he returned again, presumably to dole out my punishment. When he walked in the room this time it was no longer in disarray. The box was put back together, the OS was booted, and I sat there with the soft glow of the monitor highlighting a giant smile on my face. All he said as he walked out was “that’s yours now”.

That moment solidified my passion for technology. I've had very little “formal” training. I grew up hiding my inner geek, secretly tinkering with beige boxes that no one around me understood. I’d go to school, wrap up soccer or Tae Kwon Do practice, and then spend my nights dialing out (ok yes, sometimes wardialing) to BBS’s – seeking out other geeks and as much information as I could get my hands on. Sadly, my passion was discouraged at every turn by the education system… from Junior High all the way through college I was told my math skills weren't strong enough to work in computers. I eventually pursued a degree in Philosophy; but dropped out when I realized that would require a boatload more school (which I already didn't really care for) and all I’d be able to do with it was teach Philosophy.

As luck would have it I was really good at telemarketing (worst.job.ever…. you’re rejected for hours on end, it’s seriously a psychologically difficult job, but the money was good). This was fortunate because while on one of the thousands of calls made, I managed to social engineer my way into an interview at a technology training company. The rest is history because that call turned my passion into my career.

I now have a utility belt full of programming languages (like Batman but for coding). I'm into Local SEO, Lead Generation, Affiliate Sales, Email Marketing and promotions. I have a database of all my knowledge on databases; it has indexes on key elements and filegroups separated across different RAID arrays – performance baby. I'm a keywording SEO junkie fascinated by the new influence of Social Media / Social Networking / Engager. I practice code fu. Oh, I've also done actual Kung Fu - Citong Shaolin Kung Fu. I’ve done martial arts for a large majority of my life. I studied Tae Kwon Do for 15 years; earning a black belt and eventually worked hard enough to earn a gold medal in the Junior Olympics. I meditate daily and find mindfulness meditation has brought a quality of presence to my life that is amazing.  

I’m the proud father of a fantastic little boy. He’s incredibly smart, both intellectually (he’s in the gifted program at his school) and emotionally. When he’s with me we wrestle, play Xbox, and go for adventures with NERF guns in the woods behind our house. I’m his father, but he’s perhaps the greatest teacher I've ever had. I have a fantastic woman in my life; she’s full of more energy than I could possibly explain (no seriously, the woman can talk like you wouldn't believe). She’s deep, compassionate, and full of life. The three of us do Parkour together (free running) every week. It's an amazing, challenging, and rewarding thing to put your body in motion and challenge yourself to tackle new things or refine existing things every week. 

I’m an Android enthusiast… that means that I break my phone often tweaking and overclocking it (note to self: remember to NAND backup first!). My youth was spent spending time doing martial arts or sitting with my mom while my sister did dance lessons. While I never took lessons, I love to dance; it’s when I feel most free. The rapidly shifting landscape of social media is my latest fascination born from IT.

I'm active on EmpireAvenue and enjoy the community, engagement, and the fun of the social stock market. 

I code. I run. I love. I meditate. I dance.

I've been known to remodel airports on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I manage my time efficiently, I write award-winning opera, and translate ethnic slurs for North Korean refugees.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. Thanks to my ginger playmate I know the exact location of every food item in the grocery store (yes, including real butter). With this knowledge I plot my shopping list on my smartphone for maximum efficiency. I've performed several covert ops for the CIA, the details of which I cannot share or I'd be forced to kill you. While on vacation in Belize, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery.

I pay all my bills as they arrive and always on-time. I have a gold medal in full-contact origami. In college I discovered the meaning of life. Sadly, I forgot to write it down. I breed prizewinning shrimp and enjoy books... they are like the Internet but made of trees. I ponder who is smarter, Jesus or Buddha, in terms of not letting himself get crucified. No, this last part is not all original but has been modified to fit me and is hilarious.

I currently work for Concentrix developing web enabled insurance applications (formerly with IBM).  I blog at, tweet @PaulSpoerry, and develop for The I do side gigs via

+Thomas Wrobel I've found that once it deviates into the deep math I'm lost, but those who are truly skilled can in fact explain some of the most complex workings/theories on how our universe works in terms I can totally get. Brian Greene, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, etc are all very good at that.

+West Kagle Yeah I agree... kinda wild to be able to reflect on whats transpired and what impact it's had on the world today.

Texas Board of Education Rejects Proposal Allowing Experts to Fact-Check Textbooks
Texas Board of Education has always been sort of a joke. There was the time when it was led by Creationist Don McLeroy, who did all he could to dismantle the teaching of proper science in the classroom. There was the time after he left when the Board approved textbooks suggesting Moses influenced the writing of the Constitution. There was the time the Board was led by evolution-doubter Barbara Cargill. And we’re currently at a time when the Board is led by Liberty University graduate Donna Bahorich, who thinks so highly of public schools that she home-schooled her own kids before enrolling them in a private school.

But now.... The Board just rejected a proposal that would allow experts to fact-check textbooks before they’re approved for use in the state’s public schools. Rather than allowing academics to intervene, the board voted unanimously to tweak its current system, mandating that review panels be made up of "at least a majority" of people with "sufficient content expertise and experience" as determined by the Texas education commissioner.

Keep the Bible out of public education totally unless it is a religion class that fairly teaches about all religions. I know a Christian theological ethics professor who taught separation of church and state in his ethics courses.

Call a Kardashian... 2nd largest diamond every found is serious bling
I actually don't know anything about the Kardashians... I assume they're into diamonds and if so this one is a MASSIVE 1,111 carats. That’s 7.8 ounces of raw, unadulterated bling, that measures 65 x 56 x 40 millimeters. It's second only to the Cullinan Diamond which was an even more massive 3,106-carats—about 1.4 pounds!

The world's second-largest gem quality diamond has been discovered in Botswana, the Lucara Diamond firm says.

The Dalai Lama on Praying After Terror Attacks: “It Is Illogical. God Would Say, Solve It Yourself”
"We cannot solve this problem only through prayers. I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.
We need a systematic approach to foster humanistic values, of oneness and harmony. If we start doing it now, there is hope that this century will be different from the previous one. It is in everybody’s interest. So let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments."
Following the deadly Paris attacks, the Tibetan spiritual leader tells DW that people should not expect God to resolve man-made problems, and that a systematic approach is needed to foster humanistic values.
