  • How social media tools can enhance and extend the reach of an event

    This past Fri­day I went to a fun­draiser Celebrity Chef event hos­ted by a friend and loc­al Edmon­ton social media per­son­al­ity (and Bacon Guy) Jerry Aulenbach. Held at a loc­al premi­er bur­ger res­taur­ant, the even­ing was one of good food, good con­ver­sa­tion, and a lot of glow­ing screens. The res­taur­ant had set aside a sec­tion…

  • Dilemma: Offloading old tech

    Ok, so here’s the deal. You want a new com­puter, or iPad, or BluRay play­er or whatever. But your old one is still work­ing per­fectly fine. Yet, the fea­tures of your next tech­no­lo­gic­al acquis­i­tion are so good, so cool, that really, that new tech item will make your life much better. Great, so you go…

We chat­ted about this blog, what got me into blog­ging, life­style tech­no­logy etc. And I men­tioned my Mom a couple of times too. For…

  • Winter Hoodoos

    The big snowstorm that hit Edmon­ton on Decem­ber 4th and 5th was accom­pan­ied by rather high winds, which depos­ited and sculp­ted the snow­drifts in my yard. Inter­est­ing shapes resulted.

  • Small steps, small cups

    Since this is Blog Action Day, I thought I’d take a look at how I per­ceive my morn­ing routine is impact­ing cli­mate change — no real hard sci­ence here, but just my ped­es­tri­an per­spect­ive on  my poten­tial impact on the planet.My think­ing may be wrong-headed in places (please let me know) but this post is…

  • It was a dark and stormy morning

    It’s been said that the best cam­era is the one you have with you — heck it’s even the title of a book on iPhone photography. Which makes sense, because you can eas­ily stumble across a nifty scene, as I did here, and not be able to cap­ture it if you don’t have a cam­era…
