Vacation in Italy

So…I went to Italy. It was the best time ever. St. Peter’s Basilica blew my mind. I am still in awe. Next was the Statue of David. You can’t get your head around how amazing a statue can be until you see it in person. But my favorite thing was Venice. Yes, Venice. There is […]

Books: 4 Hour Work Week

The 4 Hour Work Week was an interesting read. The author, Tim Ferriss, proclaims to run his business in just 4 hours a week, take multiple mini retirements and to have completely automated his income.   I like his writing style. It is somewhat in your face. At the same time I think I wouldn't like Tim […]

2010 52 books January recap

Four weeks in and I’m at 2.5 books for my goal of 52 books in 2010. My pace has slowed because the current book I’m reading, Mastering the Rockefeller Habits, is so good I am rereading each chapter. I am also attempting to apply some of the lessons to my business which is basically amounting […]

Picasa for photos

Google's photo application Picasa is blowing my mind. I dumped years of photos into Picasa and it began scanning the pictures to find faces. This capability is not new, but I was surprised at how well the application works. It accurately identified people in my photo albums even if the photos were years, or even […]
