Everyone, and I mean everyone: In +Google+, go to Settings.

Once you're there, see that part that says "Who can see your "+1's on posts" activity?"

Select Only You. Having that set any other way is incredibly inconsiderate.


Hey +Twitter.  Promoted tweets are spam.  If I want to see it, I'll follow it.

If it shows up in my feed and I am NOT following it, I will report the ad and I will block the sender.

And I think everybody else should too.

Signal boost for my friend John's son Tom.
It's that time of year again for the JDRF fundraising walk here in MN.  

We walk for my son Tom.  This is him pictured, at a recent belt ceremony at Kung Fu. He loves Kung Fu.  I can't believe how hard he works at practice, usually ending up drenched with sweat.  Some of his other favorite things include the Chinese immersion school he attends, and of course, soccer.  I think these all may be life-long pursuits of his.  He also continues to be the guy that wants to make sure everyone is included and enjoying themselves, and loves helping others.  

As some of you know, Tom has Type 1 Diabetes.  Type 1 is an auto-immune disease (not caused by diet and lifestyle).  It affects every thing he does. When exercising, he has to be sure his blood sugar doesn't drop too low. At other times, it can go too high. Almost all of the time, he is able to catch it before it gets too high or low because he is now wearing a continuous glucose monitor. It's a device that attaches to him (we change it once a week) that allows him to view his glucose levels whenever he wants.  We can also view that info on our smart phones.  So when he's at school all day, we can keep an eye on him too.  

This sort of innovation wouldn't have been possible without groups like the JDRF pushing for more and better treatment options, and eventually a cure.   That is why on February 20, 2016,  I'll be joining in a walk to help raise funds for the JDRF.  This is the second year we've done this, and after seeing all the incredible things that have happened in managing Diabetes, I'm confident and proud to be able to support my son, and the JDRF, in this way. If you can help, please do so at  

Thank you very much.

Google, get your shitty, obnoxious, ad-supported Pandora rip-off crap out of my Google Music library.  If you're looking for ways to drive away loyal users, you just found the top of the list right there.

Dear Everyone Who Has a Website,

If you have embedded video that automatically starts playing when I visit your site to read an article I will block that element using Adblock Plus so that I never see it again.

Don't auto-play videos.  It's obnoxious.

It doesn't seem to matter how many times I bring up security concerns to them, Virgin Mobile doesn't seem to care. It's 2015 and they still won't allow me to secure my account with anything other than a 6-digit numeric password.  And my user name is my phone number, and I'm not able to change that either.

And today I had to call them to have them reset it for me, because somehow it got changed without my knowledge.  Did someone guess my ridiculously unsecure "password" and gain access to my account?

Sadly, I have no way of knowing, and they didn't seem concerned when I expressed dismay at how easily my account may have been compromised.

Fortunately, there's no way to purchase anything in my name by gaining access to my account -- because Virgin Mobile refuses to allow users to secure their accounts, I refuse to have any permanently set up payment options in there.

And I strongly urge anyone else who is a Virgin Mobile customer to not store credit card numbers in their accounts.  It's not a matter of "if" there is a major security breach there, it is a matter of when.

So here's another seller on you should never buy anything from. They're deceptive about product condition and overpriced.

Here's a seller to avoid on Amazon. They sent me a product with a missing part, refused to do anything other than a full return/exchange (which is stupid considering that everything else about the product was just fine) and then when I tried to work with them on it, they tried suppressing my feedback on Amazon. Great customer service, guys! You just earned my sharing my negative experience about you with everyone I know (instead of doing simple things to resolve the situation)!

It's telling how little +virginmobileusa cares about information security considering that this article is two years old and customers still can't set anything other than 6-digit numeric-only passwords on their website.  

Apparently nobody bothered explaining to them that this is just asking for a very public data breach.  Ever heard of Target, +virginmobileusa ?
