First Week at the New Job

F

Man – what a long week, but completely exhilarating and, well . . . fun! As most of you know, I am now CTO of a small interactive media and IT shop based out of Orlando called Hooah. What does “Hooah” mean, you ask? If you’re in the military or are closely affiliated with the military you already know what it means. For those of you not in the know, it’s an...

The IOA 5k Race

T

There is a yearly 5k run sponsored by “Insurance Office of America” here in the Orlando area. Every year my company, Channel Intelligence, encourages everyone to participate and attend. Easily 1/2 of our company attends each year – and that’s a staggering statistic if you stop to think about it. What other company can confidently say that close to 50%-60% of it’s...

I gotta tell you, I LOVE the iPhone – it kicks ass. I have a new phone number (actually I still have the old phone as well since it’s a company phone). Send me a private message and I will give you the new number if you want it. So...

Women and Horses

W

So my company’s 8th birthday/aniversary party was this weekend. The company treated everyone to a show at Dixie Stampede. I can’t say I was impressed (Medevial Times is much better IMO) but there were a couple of highlights. This was the Holiday show at Dixie Stampede, so the whole theme was Santa Claus and the birth of the Christ child. The skits were uninspired, but when they...

Trapped with No Sunshine

T

Prohibiting smoking in public building has one major unintended effect. Every asshole who lights up stands right outside the office doors to get his or her nicotine fix. That means that those of us who don’t smoke have to either choose to remain indoors and thus miss all the beautiful sunshine that smokers get to experience hundreds of times a day or we choose to walk through a cloud of...
