I love working at SPARC. Maybe more than anyone. Really, feel free to ask my Team Members. I’m as big of a fanboy as it gets, and the people and culture are a huge reason why. We, and definitely I, talk about “it” all the time: Culture. I’m not sure I know what that really… Continue reading Culture Is Invisible, So I’m Done Looking For It
I’ve always been a fan of Creative Commons, and the flexibility its alternative licencing gives content creators like myself who really just want to see their work in front of other people’s eyes. Getting paid is nice, but often I’m simply shooting photos and writing because I like it. Share it. Remix It. Use it.… Continue reading ERRR Magazine Skating Photos
I’ve not been shy about my fondness for Christoph Waltz‘s acting, and neither has The Academy. His performances in both Inglorious Bastards and Django Unchained are some of the best I’ve ever seen – he’s a force to be reckoned with, no doubt. As Dr. King Shultz in Django, he plays a German immigrant, who… Continue reading 21 Great Vocab Words from Dr. King Schultz
When Graham was two, he and I arranged his Dr. Seuss collection by spectrum – he thought that was pretty cool, and it hung around for a few months. When opportunity came knocking again, we rose to the occasion. The Island of Sodor has never been the same.
I grew up in the 1980s, so my memories of playing with toys from that era are filled with Star Wars figures, Transformers, and G.I. Joes. In fact, I often cite the 1980s G.I. Joe line as my last love affair with toys as a child. By the time I was done with them, I… Continue reading My 1980s G.I. Joe Graveyard
When you have a MacBook Pro delivered, the nice shiny white Apple box comes inside a less shiny brown shipping box. In fact, the Apple box is suspended inside that shipping box by paper corner pads. While I’m stoked that these packaging pieces are recyclable (Apple does pay attention to the impact of its products),… Continue reading MacBook Pro Packaging is the Apple of my Sustainable Eye
I got to shoot a ballet rehearsal during Nutcracker season this year, and caught the Sugar Plum Fairy (my better half) having a good time. Bunheads rule!
Every year on January 1st, our little family sits around the kitchen table and talks about the highlights from the year that’s just passed. Then each of us takes a peice of paper, and writes down all of our favorite things from the previous year. After that, I type them up, upload them to Wordle.net, and… Continue reading Just A Few of Our Favorite Things from 2011
Whew, that’s a mouthful! Over the last 12 months, I’ve been writing a (long-titled) book with my esteemed collegue, Melanie Mathos. We are thrilled that 101 Social Media Tactics for Nonprofits: A Field Guide will be coming out in February 2012, and I’m sure I’ll write more about here on this blog. in the mean… Continue reading 101 Social Media Tactics for Nonprofits
We found another purple lego brick! In 2009, I blogged about how rare purple Lego bricks seem to be, so my boys were stoked when they found the single round piece above. We have always wondered why purple Lego bricks were so rare, considering they were one of the “main” colors. When I did my original… Continue reading Purple Lego Brick Update
