I broke out of my comfort zone in two big ways this weekend; both involving drumming. When it comes to personal challenges, those involving my creative efforts are the most difficult to engage. A failure at something coming from creativity is a personal one, to me. However, I don’t feel that I lost in either… Continue reading Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
24 hours of flickr
It will be hard to stand out with so many great photographers pushing their work on May 5th, but there’s a minute chance of being seen by an impressive audience.

It’s all over the news. Schiavo died today from starvation/dehydration 14 days following the disconnection of her feeding tube appartus. CNN.com reports: “Without liquids, it could take Schiavo two to four weeks to die from dehydration.” I don’t get this though. Upon entering the office today, we began arguing about how long the human body… Continue reading Schiavo Dies 14 Days After Feeding Tube Removed
The folks at Flickr have been rumored to be in discussions with Yahoo on a potential purchase. All rumors aside, the news became a reality Sunday when they announced that they had, in fact, reached an agreement with Yahoo for the purchase of Flickr (and Ludicorp). I hate seeing this happen to seemingly innovative startups… Continue reading Do you…Flickr?
