Soooo, they say, "Write what you know."
I was verbally bullied from 4th grade all the way until 8th grade by a boy that lived near me in Pompton Lakes, NJ. (I don't even know if my friends from Pompton Lakes know who it is.) Every day on the way to and from school he would tease me. I still rememb... Read more of this blog post »

I've received word that Twin Oaks will be coming sooner than anticipated. So mark your calendars for December 10.

This is an amazing and busy time, but it's the best kind of busy.

I don't think it comes as a surprise to anyone who was at GRL2014 here in Chicago (yeah, I'm still here…) that the past prolonged weekend was exhausting. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep.

So here's a hint to you parents of young kids: don't think GRL is going to be a perfect 'catch up on slee... Read more of this blog post »

No words could describe the scene of horror he witnessed. Survivors brutalized beyond what any human was capable. Mangled bodies on display like some demonic art gallery. Why would he do this? thought Shaw.

What have we done? He put no blame on the synthetics. Shaw understood the painful reality t... Read more of this blog post »

October 19, 2014

I’m alone. There is not anyone here. To feel really alone is a high. Human beings, by their nature, are social animals. My needs are basically food, and something to read. Other than that, I have very little interest in anything else. By habit, I like to wander around Tokyo, but... Read more of this blog post »
