September 1, 2021

Like death and taxes, we all have to endure getting our driver’s license renewed. Almost everyone would prefer to get a root canal than have to visit the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Things are even worse during the Pandemic with even longer wait times. The time has come for me to renew my license. Since […]

The medical record quagmire

August 14, 2019

Computer records can be a lot neater than paper records, that’s for sure. I understand the push for medical records to be online. Except, for me, there have been several VERY annoying consequences. 1. The doctor spends his/her time looking at the computer screen and not at me while asking me questions. Am I really […]

Password blackhole

June 5, 2019

So I went to sign into my cvs.com account the other day. I got one of those dreaded messages, “Time to change your password. Click here to get sent a re-set link.” Darn it, I don’t want to change my password since my cvs one is one of the few I actually remember. But I […]

So I finally bought a Smart TV for my exercise room. A Smart TV means you can access the Internet from your TV. I wanted to be able to access the myriad of exercise videos on YouTube. As if my collection of 100’s of exercise DVDs wasn’t enough! The picture is crystal clear and big! […]

Social media faux pas

April 4, 2018

Okay, so social media is here to stay. But it seems it is degenerating into quick hits. A few recent experiences got me thinking about how little thought we put into what we say on social media. 1. Why connect. I’m a big LinkedIn user, since it is more for professional use. I am always […]

Awful marketing

What ever happened to honesty and integrity? I know, I know, I am asking a rhetorical question, but two recent incidents really got me thinking. By now, you all must have heard of the Equifax data breach. At least 143 million names, birthdates and social security numbers were stolen by hackers getting into Equifax. Now […]

The décor for the Future M conference was, appropriately, futuristic. For pictures see, My week at Future M.  And not surprisingly, the theme was the future of marketing. Here are some main points from the first keynote talk, “Innovation in Technology” by Brian David Johnson, Futurist and Principal Engineer at Intel. We can turn anything […]

My week at Future M

I just finished up a fantastic week learning all about the future of marketing. Wow, with technology changing nearly every day, things in the business world change quickly too. I will be doing a series of posts about what I learned, but to start things off, I thought you all would enjoy hearing (or should […]

Information overload

September 16, 2015

We are bombarded with information, images and stuff. Just one email from a content marketing firm has about 20 article links. I find myself so overwhelmed that I no longer even open the email. I just hit delete. I can’t even be bothered to open the email, scroll down through all the stuff and hit […]

Hangin’ out with Google

August 19, 2015

Do you hang out? I don’t think I ever just hung out, even when I was a teenager. Unless you count quietly reading a book all afternoon. I could never see the point of just sitting and doing nothing, even if I was in the company of good friends. Google, which will soon take over […]
