Review: The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was a fantastic, fun read.

The Inevitable Decline of the Brick & Mortar Bookstore

I’ve come back to write a post on my website after reading this insightful article on the I Love My Kindle blog. During the writing of the comment on that, I realized the strong emotional link I have to bookstores and the somewhat sad experience I recently had at the Knoxville, TN Barnes & Noble […]

Just Starting Off With 33

Everyone has to start somewhere, right? For me, that number is 33. 33 total “influence” per the Social Influence counter in the right sidebar. Why am I writing a post about this? Mainly because I’d like to keep track of this and see if it’s something that is likely to grow, or if it stays […]
