I’ve seen quite a few of my friends and family post with the hashtag ‪#‎alllivesmatter‬. And for the vast majority of those people, it’s with good intentions. They are saying that black people, and police officers, and gay people etc. all matter. And they do, absolutely, I agree. But there’s a problem with simply saying #alllivesmatter, it tends to dismiss the real issues that black people face in our society. ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬ rose in response to the killing of

IBM Connect (formerly Lotusphere) starts next weekend in sunny Orlando, Florida.  This is a tech conference I’ve attended every January for nearly the last 20 years.  I’ve attended as a developer, an admin, a speaker, the press, a blogger, and as a pointy haired boss.

Maintain or Lose Weight This past year I did pretty well bringing my weight down, but I would really love to lose another 10-15 pounds.  I need to keep at it and at least maintain where I am, but it would be good to get some exercise going too.  If I can do that, I might be able to shed some more weight. Focus on Photography Okay, I failed on this last year, but photography is a passion for me, something I love.  So I am going to try to post at least one picture a day on Instagram.  If I kee

Every year, I go back and look at my resolutions and see how I did.  Let’s take a look once again. Get Healthier On this I think I did pretty well overall.  That curve on my weight chart keeps going down, but I’m not totally where I want to be yet.  I did it mainly through what I ate.  What I really need to do is actually commit to exercising.  But I feel pretty good about this one. Do more with my Photography I pretty much failed miserably at this again.  I barely took the DLSR out th
