It seems like just yesterday I was crossing the half marathon finish line, and now we're already at Thursday! I'm still relatively tense and stiff from the race and I've been meaning to get to the massage therapist's office all week. I will most likely have to schedule it for the weekend. In the meantime, … Continue reading Yoga + Bike Goodies + Hotel Booked + Oh Yeah, Please Donate to my Fundraiser!
It's been a long while since I've updated here! As you may have noticed, my running is a bit off. Well, it's like, super off. It's so off that I'm sleeping with my running gear on so that when I get up tomorrow morning it's the first thing I do!

I've decided in the short amount of time that I've been working out that there are two iPhone apps that I could not live without.

I've been following the news lately about what has been going on in Egypt. It's strange -- I am usually not interested in politics; however, if it involves something with the regulation of technology and communications I am all ears. (No pun intended.)

Long before I began practicing my craft, information technology was positioned to greatly serve our global community. With such a powerful tool free and open to the world, you'd figure that we would have found a way to keep it a safe and sacred place. WRONG! Although a good majority of the Internet is honest-to-goodness … Continue reading Hacktivism: When The Mouse > (Pen + Sword)
