It's hard to believe you...

It's hard to believe you don't know anyone who creates, install, repairs, delivers or sells something for a living, be it food, drink, landscapes, healthcare, clothing, cars, houses or what ever. I've been a waitress, a library page, a microbiology lab technician, a paste-up and camera operator, a collator, a delivery person, a novelty assembly person, an admin assistant, and a jack-of-all trades computer person. While many of these jobs did include using a computer (even back in the dark ages of the 80's!) they were all about something other than using a computer or writing software. Even today, when I do spend much of much of my day using a computer, it's part of the whole in the delivery of healthcare.

If you would kill to have a job that could be explained using a cartoon animal, I suggest that you are in the wrong career.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
