The Environment And The 80/20 Principle

Posted on July 25, 2014

Climate doubters make the idea of climate change seem like a controversy.  But I'm fairly certain that if you speak to any nature enthusiast anywhere in the world, it's very clear that the environment is messed up...badly.  It doesn't take a big leap to go from what we've destroyed on earth to what we are doing to the air, and from there, what we're doing to the climate. 

I don't want to argue about climate change, I don't think you can win that argument with rational arguments. 

My concern is, looking around at sites like Twitter and Facebook that we're putting our focus in the wrong place.

Books, The Wikipedia Revolution

Posted on July 24, 2014

I love reading.  Most of what I read is non-fiction and relates either to computer science, business or nature. 

I'm always busy reading a few books at the same time, and I often have some textbooks that I'm working through.

How I Ended Up In Namibia

Posted on July 23, 2014

Personal story for a change.  I grew up in both South Africa (in my early childhood) and Kenya (most of my school year).  After completing my schooling, I left Kenya to go and study in South Africa. 

South Africa was really strange for me at the time.  It was just the time when everything was changing.  I was very pleased that things were changing, but didn't feel like I really related to what was going on.  I didn't really understand what had happened in South Africa.

Never Stop Testing, Adjusting and Fixing

Posted on July 21, 2014

I'm one of those people who finds comfort in a routine.  I want my day to be organized, for my business to be planned out and to basically be on top of things.  But I've found that just isn't really the way life works...not mine anyway. 

This has been especially frustrating as I've started running my own business this last year.  I want it to work like clockwork, but it never really does. 

busy schedule?

Update - My Workout Routine

Posted on July 17, 2014

I've been a long time fitness enthusiast.  Now in my forties, I'm finding it more and more important to keep up my workouts to keep myself feeling good and looking good. 

Some time back I wrote down my workout routine.  Since then it has gone through many changes, so I thought it's time for an update.
