New York City

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do…

My Next Move: Morgan Stanley and Cavell & Cavell

If you follow my blog very much, you know I left my job at Adaptivity a few weeks ago.  So the question is, what have I been up to for the last few weeks?  Well, immediately after things were done with Adaptivity a few people started to knock on my…

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

I came face to face with the downside of working for a startup this week.  Unlike a super-sized corporation, small ones have a tendency to change directions in a hurry.  The company I have spent the last few years at decided last week to make the strategic move of cutting a fair…

2012: The New Year’s Resolution Post

When I went from part-time blogger to near-daily blogger at the beginning of 2010, I did it with a post about New Year’s resolutions.  I kept up the tradition last year, and have finally taken the time (it’s taken a few days to hammer out this year’s posts).  When I…

2011 New Year’s Resolutions in Review

There’s no sense in posting my New Year’s Resolutions on this blog each year (as I did in 2010 and 2011) if I’m not going to revisit them each January in advance of writing some new ones.  In addition to providing accountability, I think there are things to be learned…

Merry Christmas

I am taking a couple days to enjoy the family and think not about cloud, financing, or even technology.  Catch me again on Monday.

Breadth, Focus, and the Need to Practice Thinking

I had a great conversation a few evenings back with a new friend.  She had read many of the same books I used to read when you saw Book Reviews popping up on this blog on a very regular basis.  I still read those books, but MUCH MUCH slower than…

Sanity, One Way or Another

I am aboard the 635 flight to Charlotte, banging away at a blog post since I know it will be the last chance I get to do one today.  I am leaving town only 2 days after arriving from a thanksgiving trip that I left for only 3 days after…

Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, in addition to the ridiculousness of the actual holiday, I am trying to spend a little time focused on just how good I have it.  Sometimes it’s easy to get wrapped up in the rat race and forget that we’re having fun.  That my rat race is the…
