  • Sounds like Spring

    So I was just outside on our porch. The weather is beautiful: sunny and long-sleeve-shirt-warm. I heard two things that made me think of Spring: A moped; a kid who lives around the corner likes to drive his moped down around our cul-de-sac and back up to his house. He was doing that all last…

  • Coincidence? I think not.

    So I was on the throne reading Information Week magazine yesterday (is that too much information?), and in their page that has little news clips, I noticed two that were not overtly connected, yet made me pause.

  • Writing, distraction, writing

    So, I’m in the midst of trying to crank out a proposal that is to be in the mail today. I’m making progress, but too slowly. So, Chey told me to turn on some techno music and write to this blog for 5 minutes. So, I am. Any other bloggers out there getting comments that…

  • Thoughts on understanding and wisdom

    The Taguchi Method, as outlined in the linked article, offers an intriquing method of developing products. This method involves looking at an array of variables involved in a product, identifying dependencies amongst them, and testing them all to assess effectiveness. Taguchi’s objective is robust design, which means building a product, system, or process that works…

  • Dry mouths

    We forgot to turn on the humidifier in our bedroom last night, and the heat kept coming on. I awoke dry
