Is it Monday already? I’m prepping to shoot a music video for the lovely and amazing Pandora Boxx this coming weekend — her single “I Wanna Have Some Fun” should be a blast to shoot for. That being said, this month has been INSANE. Got a couple side gigs, and then some extra work from the usual suspects, so this last week will be a mad dash to the finish of August.
But if you happened to be wondering where I popped up on the internet in the past 7 days, here’s where I showed up:
- Mobile Nations [Aug 27 2012]: The Monday Brief in which we briefly discuss the Apple v. Samsung verdict, Microsoft’s new logo, and some “What Ifs” from BlackBerry. Also, I wear a sweet jacket.
- Techfoolery Podcast [Aug 24 2012]: Episode #41: “Toddler Fight Club, Grandma Arsonist” - We actually talked a lot about technology this week! We know, we know, a TECH show talking about actual TECH? It’s too much!
- G4’s Knuckle Up [Aug 24 2012]: This week’s Knuckle Up features more great games! Horn, Toybox, Mikey Shorts, Spirits, and Sunshine. Still totally obsessing over Mikey Shorts right now. Can’t…stop…playing…
- Tecca’s “Just Show Me” [Aug 20-24 2012]: Hiding items in Facebook’s Timeline, Search for Files in Windows 7, Organize Facebook Photos, Install Google Drive on a Windows 7 PC, and Great Photo-Sharing Sites. As always, videos for the uninitiated, entry level lover of technology. If you love your new gadget, but have no idea how to really step up the way you use it, Tecca is a great resource.
I’ve been reading Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers (slowly but surely), and I’m enjoying it a LOT. Tons of great facts and numbers in it. If you love stuff like that, you’ll surely love the book. While I was reading it last night, there was something in there that really struck a chord with me. I’ve been slaving away over my various projects lately, and it’s been really, really hard, but when I read it, it gave me the perspective I’d been missing the last few weeks:
“Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning.”
This means so much to me. All of it. It’s such a gift.
