21st Century Writing

Writing in the 21st Century has been a hot topic at work the past few weeks.  Trying to explain how writing has changed to colleagues who haven’t quite figured out the difference between a blog and a wiki or how either of these is different than Microsoft Word is a bit challenging.  That’s why I […]

Famous Techies

Sometimes when I attend technology events I find that many of the attendees and speakers drop names like nobody’s business. “Have you read so-and-so?” “So-and-so’s blog post was amazing.” ” I can’t even believe so-and-so would advocate for that program.” Sheepishly, I often fake that I know who they are talking about and make a […]
